    Painted in Testors gloss and metallics and I gave her J.T.Silversmith's simple but genius shoulder mod, which is just a nice optional feature to have. I also trimmed down the bike handle bars a bit for more clearance with the new shoulder positions.

    So is her wheel off her back or is it hidden somewhere because I can't see it!

    Yes the back wheel is removable and it helps her look and balance a lot to do so. So I did. :)

    Just look at how the wheel is attached. Its very simple. Just slide the peg out of the groove.

    Might be just a wee bit small for a G.I. Joseph.
    (That's what we call Joes here in Israel, in honor of baby Jesus' daddy.)

    She does have a lot of similarites to her Takara version only with more details added on! Are you planning to get the RID version so you can do some work on her too?

    I dunno. I'm not sure I've seen it. Someone said it was a lighter color or something.

    Well I have a picture of the RID Arcee that's avalable so far. It's not perfect because it was blown up but I hope at least you can get agood glimps of what the RID version is like!

    Oh wow. It looks like her shoulders are more accurate but her color is too light. I really hate that giant mechtech thing she has...
    Thanks!
