    Thanks everyone, your comments are appreciated. This is one for my personal collection so I may make some improvements to labels when I can. I'd like a better lightbar, but I couldn't find anything right, so I made one out of an outlet cover. Lockdown's roof is deceptively small. Anyway, here are some WIP pics.

    Filling in the hood was a bear. Once the engine is gone, there is a big difference in the height of the detachable center part of the hood from the surrounding side parts. I used styrene and aves fixit. Filled it in, then sanded until smooth and level.

    Once smooth, I painted the whole car flat black to find minor imperfections and fill in the gaps. Then, taped off and painted the roof/hood/chest white with spraypaint.

    Finally, did some painting in bot mode, laid out stickers and finished him up.

    an outlet cover?!...man! Had you not said that I just would have went on thinking it was salvaged from some old cop car.

    again, great work here.

    Fantastic looking in those G1 colors, I sure miss this series. Nice job on not prowl :D 

    In season 4 ratchet could have removed lockdown's spark and reformated it to a autobot and became a wrecker

    So are the stickers from reprolabels? And if so, are they waterslide or regular stickers? I've only ordered from them once recently, and I thought they used to do waterslide, but got regular.
