    I have to give credit where it is due. I like the work that chansformer does here in the Radicons, and this was inspired by his awesome custom of the same figure. Pretty simple formula, take RTS Windcharger, do your best to paint it white, take the head off of a G1 Tailgate and mod it to fit on Windcharger's, and viola, classics Tailgate.

    I did use the reprolabels meant for the 2pack Windcharger/Wipeout on Tailgate here to give him his radio console chest because i'm a little slavish to G1 like that, and I feel it works alright lol. Comments and Crits are welcome, thanks for looking!

    I'll leave that for Hasbro lol

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the advice, I did actually want to do that, but I mistakenly figured my white primer would be strong enough to overcome that red....well, you live and learn.
