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.
Love this idea
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.
Clean and beautiful. Really love the vision. Great work man.
Thanks...one of these guys.
This is fantastic. Great work!
Fantastic looking in those G1 colors, I sure miss this series. Nice job on not prowl
In season 4 ratchet could have removed lockdown's spark and reformated it to a autobot and became a wrecker
Thanks all. I really appreciate the comments. This was a fun one.
Optical illusion? Or is this guy shorter than a standard LD?
I noticed that too. Still dig this custom though.
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.
