In a previous post I had shown off some of my Siege mods. Minor/Repaint: - Siege mods Included were some modifications to Astrotrain. Since then I worked on him enough to justify his own thread. Bot Mode -The thing I think that really helped nail his animation look was painting his face white. He always had that creepy ghost face. Just with White Testors model paint with a tiny hint of grey. -I opened up his head and gave his eyes red shiny stickers from leftover Reprolabels. Closing the head sandwiched the sticker in. -His blaster is a kitbash based on the laser pistol he had in the cartoon. Used a G1 Snarl gun NonNef weapons and other bits pinning pieces together. -I shaved the top of his shoulders a little bit so they weren't so pointy. Shuttle Mode -Gave him 1/250 scale thrusters with 5mm pegs -VERY carefully with alcohol removed the Decepticon tampo from his wings (wings are painted grey)and gave him new faction symbols closer to middle of wings. I wanted them visible in bot mode which they were not before. -I filled the 5mm ports all around because a shuttle that scale would have craters otherwise -Gave him a purple tailfin stripe using model paint -The gap filler is from a second Astrotrain tailfin section modified with a titanmaster swivel peg to be able to attach it to Astro's back in bot mode. -Gave his Shuttle mode lasers like in the cartoon using Tamiya model sprues. -his Shuttle vents are WST Megatron sticker spares from Toyhax Train Mode -Yellow metallic stickers for cab and Chigurh stickers for lights -Painted the crankshaft/connectors and front light chrome I removed the garbagy battle damage with Alcohol.
