    Hi. I'm just new to this kind of hobby and i'm really enjoying it. What actually got me started is seeing everybody's work. I've seen customs way way far from how I magined it to be, making this hobby really exciting and fun.

    Here's my first custom. Hope you enjoy it as much as i did. Thanks

    Finally someone actually replaced the beefy biceps with smaller feminine looking ones. Great job I look forward to seeing your future kitbashes as well :)

    That was my first thought! This is THE best Slipstream custom I've seen so far!! VERY nice! I still think her forearms should be slimmed down as well, but still.... this is a VERY nice Slipstream custom! Excellent work!

    Slipstream looks fantastic. I love that you fixed the bicepts and I love the lips too. Nice job. :thumb  :thumb

    I concur with the rest, but I would like to know what you used for the biceps. I need to make a Slipstream for my animated seeker collection.

    Thanks everyone for visiting. I'm glad you liked it.

    @tobuttica The biceps and arms were actually just trimmed down original biceps and arms filled with putty. Though due to the resizing, she lost her arm gimmicks

    Needs a bit more in the chest area... maybe some conveniently-shaped scoops over the air intakes. But they'd have to be done in good taste. Nice and aerodynamic, with slightly softened angles to fit with the overall aesthetic.

    (Yes, I'm saying she needs boobs)

    Another Slipstream. Paintwork's good, no faults there. But not quite perfect. It's not your fault though, it's Hasbro's. Personally if I were kitbashing this mold I'd fix some of the original screwups, such as the feet being done wrong (They're supposed to be thruster-heeled like G1), as well as the guns being mounted on the forearms instead of the correct placement on the upper arms. Where does Hasbro find these people?

    She looks great! :thumb  You've given her headsculpt a huge whack of personality & her paintjob ain't too bad either. Sweet-ass job Crazen! :) 

    I'm not going there... :lol
