    Ok guys so i know of a couple of you on here have this kit but just literally finished this up this afternoon whilst working on a commision for someone, this one is for my collection unless i get a serious offer on him!

    anyhow he was painted with a matt white paint which looks ultra flat :drool:  and detailed with citadel colours and humbrol enamels. im really happy with how he turned out.

    nothing special but i think he looks cool! alt mode pics to follow when the paint has set! as usual i would like you C+C!! thanks a lot and credit to anyones ideas i have used but so many of you have already done a wheeljack!

    Looks nice! Not a big fan of 'gold' paint tones on Classics line though.

    yeah the gold was a last min addition as it looked kinda bland, but glad you like the rest of it :)

    Nice job... I'm really starting to like this mold a lot more as Wheeljack than as Sunstreaker!

    I like this, it's looking very very tidy. I actually like you using the Sideswipe legs and keeping that blue, it strangely fits all the green and red. I guess it matches his eyes? But still, gives that sparkly robot metal aura...

    How did you like the MC kit?

    well this was from a sunstreaker as i picked him up cheap and i liked the grey parts better, also the kit initially i thought was good however after painting it it seemed to turn brittle on the front spoiler parts, the rest of the kit is solid and good, the head is perfect and fits on the bot so well. however white is a son of a bitch to paint!!

    LOL I just looked at my Sunstreaker and realized his legs also had blue! Uh oh on the front skirt, that's essential Wheeljack, you need that!

    HAHA on the white, so I hear. And I hear that a lot. :D
