    Wheeljack WIP now with video link

    NOW ACCEPTING COMMISSIONS:
    This is a current commission I am working on. He is made from a 1/24 Lancia Stratos Turbo shell and a MP Skywarp frame. He is loaded with l.e.d.s in his head, taillights, headlights/blinker, and soon in his weapon. He has working missile launchers and will also come with his Shockblast Cannon. All comments welcome. Thanks for looking! Here is a link to his video transformation http://www.youtube.com/v/YoVrTh1P0Nc&hl=en_US&fs=1&

    Oh sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet, I love the lines of his alt-mode, and gorgeous work on the LEDs! I can't wait to see more
    1:24 makes him BT/Alt scale, right? (Always forgets)

    Hey Wan,
    Ok lets start here.
    1. The head is some scratch built some prefab. It's a MP Skywarp head cut down and built up with styrene strips and framing along with plexi-glass ears double up for thickness and etched.
    2. The 1/24 fits because of the amount of material I remove from the original MP Skywarp, wings, nosecone etc.. I basically take it down to the frame. It's easier to use this than scratchbuilding the frame because of the perfection in transformation engineering, articulation and detail it provides. Basically it's extremely cost efficient while not lacking in the area of detail.
    3. Price PM'd
    And thanks for the compliments bro I love your stuff also!

    A G1 style Alt/BT Wheeljack? Easy win right there. This is going to be so epic when it's done, I feel it!!

    Whoa! The sheer amount of effort that goes into an MP-sized reshell is one thing - but then to go ahead & incorporate a bunch of LEDs & wiring into him (as well as plenty of top-notch workmanship) brings him to a whole other level. Can't wait to see Wheeljack to fruition! :)
