    So I've been working on this project for about a week. I wanted to finish it up today but it was just way too humid for spray painting. Pretty close to finishing it though so I figured I'd post a couple pictures. 20210607_014110.jpg 20210607_014049.jpg

    Looks good! Not that I would know anything about how good a Shattered Glass Thundercracker would look or anything.

    (I was being sarcastic! Don’t let this custom consume your collection!)

    (or do! I’m not your parental unit, lol)

    Nice and smooth. I never realized how popular Skittle-cracker was.

    This looks rad, you've done a really nice job with him. I've always loved SG Thundercracker's garish colour scheme.

    Looks awesome, I like the way some color patches have been modified for the new mold details.

    I honestly had to do a double take at the username of the original post

    Thanks to a cameo in IDW, he and G2 Ramjet are separate characters to the originals, though they remain unnamed.

    Man I really want to get this done but it has rained the last two weekends and is way too humid for spraying. I got other stuff in the pipe planned for the future. My next projects are a shattered glass Nightbeat and shattered glass Inferno.

    Oh, wow, he looks awful and wonderful. I might want to do one of my own if I find another cheap Seeker. You did a great job with all those colors. It's really hard to keep clear separations in some of those spots on this mold.

    It took forever but I went ahead and finished this guy up... Although honestly now that I say it's finished, I'm seeing that he could probably use just a smidge more green in the vehicle mode. Don't know if I'll get around to doing that.

    Onward to eventually SG Nightbeat and Hound 20210706_140133.jpg 20210706_140123.jpg 20210706_140114.jpg 20210706_135819.jpg 20210706_135813.jpg 20210706_135040.jpg 20210706_134713.jpg

    I went ahead and hit it with the green real quick on the vehicle mode. 20210706_154937.jpg
