    HI there Radicons! This will be my second Radicon submission after my Repainted Movie Rescue Ratchet.

    Anyways, I posted this in the cool stuffs thread earlier, but since the radicon big man superquad7 encouraged me to post here, so there! :D  :D 

    There are 3 areas which I did some light modification:-

    1) Visor, I used a thin plastic plate from Tamiya to shape and glued the visor on to his face

    2) Cheeks, added a layer of pla-plate to cover the seam lines

    3) The ears are filed down from the original Silverstreak crest and sandpapered to the right size.

    4) Bumper, which admittedly needs more work. Also used pla-plate to cover.

    The colors are Tamiya colors with Silver and flat black. So touch ups here and there and the car mode still needs some work, that is why it is still a WIP :p

    DAAAMN! I gotsa make me one of those. That looks awesome. I actually considered leaving the decals of my custom Jazz for an Alt Jazz look but the silver on this guy looks really cool

    Can we get a shot of the front of the car? And can you please start casting those heads cuz the Action Master one I used it a bit too big to fit in car mode?

    Oooooh! The silver bullet is loose! Even sweeter because this looks like the factory color, adding to the realism! Now your Classic 2.0 is drifting into Alternator territory!:thumbs2:

    Damn dude! That is very sleek looking. Wholly original. Still very Jazz. Great job. Even though everyone is doing this one (including myself) its nice to see a refreshing take on it. Kudos!

    I saw this in cool stuff today (I was actually on for just a few mins), and I thought it was really slick (and still do!). I'm so thrilled you posted this to share! Everything about this piece is just superb, imo. I really hope we see more and more of your work man! :thumb

    Thanks for adding the frontal shot of the car. I think it's pretty good for a start. Why is there a little bit of black on the sides of the bumper?

    Oh yeah I also forgot to mention that I like the little silver toe on him too :thumb

    I like it! I'm scoping Jazz out because I'm working on one from the Prowl mold myself. The Movie color works well. Great job.
