    Hey all,

    After seeing some epic posts on here, adding parts to Legacy Pointblank I wanted to have a go myself.

    Created my version of the shield weapon G1 Pointblank has.

    The idea was to complement Legacy aesthetic and to maintain compatibility with Legacy Peacemaker in robot and vehicle mode.

    Couple of booboos in the measuring department but version 2 is now on the printer....

    Painted up the clear roof panel and may revisit at a later date. Pretty happy with how he is looking currently.

    Very surprised at how close a match for the blue. Used Citadel Temple Guard Blue.

    Very nice!
    Might be the best looking version of this to date.

    Thanks for the kind words. Mk2 is printed.
    Work just gets in the way.

    I think I got the profile a little more streamlined for the shield and will post a few photos once I have cleaned it.

    I am working on a way to "reduce" the width of the cockpit more as a what if.... something still bugs me about the profile in robot mode...

    I was thinking Thingiverse. Need to sort an account out.

    I have a Shapeways account and nearly cried at how much this would cost on there..

    Yeah, I find the prices on Shapeways to be prohibitive.
    I get stuff from Cults and Thingyverse far more often.

    Bit of an update. Mk2 version printed and test fitted.
    Few extra tweeks to the handles (printed separately to reduce the sanding effort and improve fit in Pointblank's grip)
    This time Peacemaker fits in both intended positions and I think looks really smart in vehicle mode. Clearance is a little tight but overall very happy with it.

    Am working on setting up a Cults account.
    And need to up my game with my painting. The camera picks out just ALL the flaws haha.

    Well apparently I'm blind as a bat, because I don't see any flaws, looks better than most of my painting.

    Looking fantastic!
    Something like this really should have been included with the retail release to begin with.

    Hi all,

    It's been a few weeks. Funny how other things take priority in life. (does painting the house exterior count as a major custom :)  )

    The shield is now posted on Cults HERE: Shield for Transformers Legacy PointBlank

    Have a few other projects on the go so will see how we get on over the next few weeks.
