    Hey peeps. Just wanna share my latest custom project. The idea has been around and done by a lot of people so I decided to jump in the bandwagon and make one of my own. So without further adieu... Presenting...

    Project TLS-02 Biker Lady [Not Arcee]

    Made using TFP/RID Arcee's body, Energon Arcee's head and painted it using Gundam Markers (so please excuse my lackluster paint job :eek:  ). Gave her TFP/RID Hot Shot's weapons as I think they are quite fitting which also gave her vehicle mode a somewhat "Mospeada-ish" look.

    With 1st Edition Movieverse Arcee

    Hope you guys like it :)

    Pretty badass! I was thinking of doing that color scheme on an RID one, but the head switch was just genius. It looks really good (maybe a WEEEEEE bit too small, but still awesome!)! I really like this, nice work!

    Wow! That really works. I love the mix of G1 and Prime in that last picture. I never thought a G1-style Bumblebee head would look good on a Prime Bumblebee body. He, Cliff, and Arcee look really good together. Almost makes me want to go out and buy a GDO Cliffjumper. Almost.

    looks great my onle gripe with it is the pink used. its too loud. arcees pink i think is more bubblegum. i know minor detail blah blah doesnt mean it doesnt look great.

    Thanks a lot guys. Glad you all like it and really appreciate the comments.

    Yeah... the head is a bit small but seems to look more proportionate/in scale with the body. It even fits in to her chest cavity nicely during the transformation in to bike mode.

    Looking forward to seeing your ideas becoming reality. :) 

    Thanks. That's the only pink available from the markers colour selection. Sorry to say I'm no professional customizer so I can only utilize what is available to me with my limited skills but I deeply appreciate your comments. :)

    try testors. they sell a variety of enamel paints that look great. really all with marker? then i have to say its even better becuase you can see any overlaping lines and its really smooth. i thought just the head was marker done. bravo!

    Haha... the paint are not exactly smooth if you look at it close in hand. It's just the illusion of a low resolution/distant angle camera shots... lol :p  .

    I have heard about Testors paints being very suitable for painting model kits and figures. l'll have a look in to it. Thanks for the suggestions :)  .
