The Spike and Sparkplug are like $10 now.
it says Spike and Sparkplug are under an inch, but i'm guessing that means 7/8"...next to the cab on Exgraver, that just looks like it'd be a tad too big...
and if i find some terrified people, i'm thinking N scale or HO scale, i'll for sure pass that info along here...
I have those Spike and Sparkplug figures standing next to my G1 Prime and Bumblebee. They are perfectly to scale with the G1 minicars, but are a little too small for the bigger guys like Prime and Jazz, etc. They are a great deal at $10.
Bottom left-hand corner. Sorry I can't do better at the moment.
i hope mine will be good to go after im done still need 2 007
Great work guys !!!
Can I ask what type of paint is the best to use on these bases? Not so much the make but the type of paint?
Skywarp and Payton!
good question...acrylic?...laquer?...oil based?
also, rattle can?...airbrush?...regular brush?
they are model plastic so any technique/ paint combo works. I'm going with games workshop and vallejo paints with mostly dry brushing.
Any paints would work on this, but I'll prefer Spray can paints like Tamiya, Testors etc,
get a Steel color paint, then dry brush some parts you want, then details and stuff.
Spray cans are more easier to apply, but I'll use my airbrush. lol
Thanks Guys! Payton yours is coming out awsome!!!
Alucard77, i used 1x04, 1x09, 2x10. Wanted to use more but it would not fit in the detolf if i used more.
Bob, i used testor flat black spray then drybrused with silver and copper.
Okay so im on the wall with the energon cubes,
should i go with the light up ones or the clear ones?
Im thinking to go with the clear ones and add more leds, that way all i have
todo is flip the swith and all the lights will turn on...
OMG, I'm loving these Dioramas! Where can I still find these mechanical chain bases?
U can find them cheap on ebay now. I paid 80+ for 4 of them from hlk
Ebay is the way to go
I actually bought both sets since I wasn't sure if they were the same size...I think I'll end up using the smaller ones...
Did your 004 come with a little cart? I think 006 does...
not got enough to put mine together yet need to buy a few more sets! but reckon they need to be 3 high and not 2 loving the way you done yours payton! @ skywarp where did you get and what are those led's?
yeah. i believe it needs to be 3 high atleast for hercules. 2 high is just to low
How did you make it?
3 high would definiely would be prefered to cover Herc if you planned on putting a roof on the display...but for just a "WIP" Herc, 2 high looks great IMO
Just get the clear ones, and the spotlight-type LEDs you already have should illuminate them anyway once everything is turned on. Shouldn't be a need to install them inside the cubes as well.
