    Thats amazing! Hasbro and Takara should partner with you for making an official Masterpiece shockwave!

    very cool custom, dude!!!
    But I think there is too much paint, it has to be thinner...
    And I think there could be some more details...

    cheers!

    too much paint?!its airbrushed its really thin,if anything it will be the mold if it looks thick in places but looks fine to me i cant really see what you are refering to?

    ,as for details i was trying to recreate the cartoon shockwave-he has very little details in fact none haha if you dont count the eye

    i was tempted to go for lots of details and i usually do but it would no have been cartoon acurate.cheers

    Ive made 3 altogether, although my first one got me into kitbashing. The other 2 were to improve upon my first attempt. I can send you links to the vids ive done if you like. Also, as I have sold the last 2 I made I will be remaking it for myself. If you want detail pics of any process, I can only try and get them for you through the next rebuild if you like.
