    I finally finished my Wheeljack! I started him way before Christmas and put the last touch on him today.:D 



    The decals are from Repolables and are the original G1 set.



    Thanks for looking and C&Cs are welcomed!

    This is great work! The paint and stickers came out clean. What is that shoulder cannon from? And one small thing. I know you said you were done but are there any plans for some wings?

    One can get some nifty door-wings that don't require part-forming. =3

    Sunstreaker/Sideswipe mold is so versatile. Nice job here, paint apps and Repostickers are well done!

    Thanks guys, glad you like it!!
    The shoulder cannon is Classic Hotrod's cannon. I sawed off the flame exhaust and glued a missle from a fighter jet model on, and added a longer peg to place in shoulder "hole". Hmmm wings you say?? Hmmmm just when you thought it was safe to go back to your work table!!!

    The background is simple. I saved the cardboard insert from a universe larger box and carefully removed the plastic "form holders" and now I have the background. :) 

    Thanks for the compliments guys! Happy you liked it!

    Awesome work, that mold works well for Wheeljack.

    Something that looks weird to me though is the sticker on top of the car. On G1 Wheeljack, it follows the contours of the top of the car, but on the sunstreaker mold, that isn't possible. I can't say it would look better if it did follow the contour, it just sticks out to me.

    But that is minor, everything else about him looks great.

    Nice, I'm planning on doing one of these soon. Could you maybe do a tutorial of how to attatch the head to the body?

    This is awesome work. If you decide to add the wings it would really set him off
