    So, it was over 4 years ago that I started this one. I guess better late than never.

    http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/208483-afterburner-wip-mock-up-crit-needed.html

    Afterburner started out as a Cybertron Ransack. I ended up using 2 of them for both front and rear wheels. This thighs are extended and this heals are locked with a filler to give him height to accommodate the "backpack". The "backpack"/cockpit is built from Ransacks weapon/top but with added parts and scratch built styrene.

    I did something different with this one, taking more time with painting each part using Kyrlon sprays as opposed to hand painting.

    Overall, I'm just happy he is finally done, and since he will be spending most of his life as an arm I'm quite pleased with the fact that he also has a suitable Bot and ALT mode.

    Thanks for looking. Now, 4 years from now I should have another done ;) 

    (sorry for the crappy pics, missing good camera cord)
