    Finally! Zoom Zoom is out. This is probably gonna be the last of the REDS. I do hope to showcase Ratchet as soon as I get my stickers from Reprolabels. Also, a very big thank you to Sculpbot for assisting me with Zoom Zoom's head sculpt.

    I do realize after doing all this, that Jazz's body may not be the best base for Zoom ZOom's head. Some of my friends were telling me that it makes him look like a midget? Maybe coz Jazz 'chest' is too broad.

    That's looking hot. I would recommend some glossy white details, like
    in the knee cavities, and some wires. metallic red + glossy white = win.

    Cool! Thinking of that too but at the same time, trying not to overdo the details. Hmm..*scratches head* Will try it out next thing in the morning.

    I don't think you will overdo the details, but just add another color besides red.

    That red looks really good in the first pic. I can't wait to see what head you are using for him. Is it a new sculpt (movie style maybe) or just the Jazz one Sculpt-bot has in his heads thread?

    Oh, I used Mr Hobby paints as it's available in many many glossy shades. But I did had to polish with compounds after every stage for the shine to be more apparent.

    Oh, I'm using Mr SculptBot's Jazz Head from his threads as it is similar to Zoom Zoom's head from Binaltech :)

    This is looking really sharp bud! That red looks especially nice. I think this is a very interesting choice for a custom :thumb 

    As an aside, I simply dubbed my red BT Meister "Zoom", because I just felt silly calling him "Zoom-Zoom". I just wanted to add that so you'd know that you're not the only one to take affinity with the character :) 

    Keep up the good work! :thumb

    I love that color of red you've got there on Zoom-Zoom. Your application is nice as well. I think this piece is a winner :) 

    *wants one*
