Huzzah!!!

Finally got off me bum to get another one cranked out. STL was here for the creation of this dude, but here he is in semi completed glory. Alt Mode pics when the paint dries 100% :)

Beachcomber

Anyone know where I can find a little cool surfboard to go with him? :)

Alt Mode

With those colours and alt mode, he should be called Beachcomber.

He is, just gotta wait for the paints to dry and to get some stickers. :)

We looked around. lcz128 doesn't like the skateboards much per se and I agree, wrong shape and not natural enough which is what the surfboard gives.

And I'm first in line, mind you. :p

Great minds think alike! That's exactly what i suggested to lcz128 when we were shopping last Friday but we didn't have time to get around to the surf shops.

I just realised that makes me the father, yeah? In that case, we're divorcing and I want custody!

hmmm you prolly need to keep a lookout for the optimus monkey( cybertron series) coz hes the monkey with the jet powered surfboard, it'd fit perfectly with the look plus its an official TF accessory/weapon so it'd match. NIce work lcz128!

Hahah I'm trying to perfect the sealing technique first - trying to reduce rubbing paint-scrapage. So, once that's figured out, we'll be able to move forward! Am very excited bout this one though :D

He looks nice but he might need something else to break up all the silver in botmode... :)
Thanks Pulse! I agree! There's more detail for the chest that will be going in now that the paint's dry :) (and STL's very right about it not being dry yet and hence I didn't chuck one of my cool reprolabel stickers on :D)


*cough* autobot insignia *cough*

:D As I mentioned, STL gets full marks there :D

Got them already from a while back - just need to dig em up again too :D
And yeah- Skateboards aren't the same. Shape's far too diff.

Thanks for the linkage. I need to see how much the surfboards in person and what size they are. a lot of the links you posted would work for a larger scale beachcomber- not the scout size that he is. :\ and I don't intend the surfboards to be so... loud :b Am probably going to go with a simple looking surfboard :D

Great minds think alike! That's exactly what i suggested to lcz128 when we were shopping last Friday but we didn't have time to get around to the surf shops.
Now we just have to find them, aye?
And yeah- if you're the one divorcing me, that'd make you the money-grabbing bee-y*tch. :b Besides. It was immaculate conception. Lol.

hmmm you prolly need to keep a lookout for the optimus monkey( cybertron series) coz hes the monkey with the jet powered surfboard, it'd fit perfectly with the look plus its an official TF accessory/weapon so it'd match. NIce work lcz128!
THat's a really good idea... but again the size of that board would be way larger than Beachcomber :\ Scout size is... too small for that- For a deluxe sized one though - ... which would work if I tried out that Landmine-->Beachcomber custom (I've been planning on that anyway :D)

Looking very good lcz128. Great job! :)
Thanks a lot Kyle :D




NEXT:
SEASPRAY!!! ...... which would already be started except that I brought no paint-thinning substances to work today which would allow me to strip the existing paint off this guy... D'OH!!!...
AND! I am probably going to be doing more spraying of paint onto seaspray... I think it'll work better considering the mould. :D Stay tuned!

Yep! Hardtop (http://tfu.info/2005/Decepticon/Hardtop/hardtop.htm), Swindle (http://tfu.info/2006/Decepticon/Swindle/swindle.htm) and Hardtop (http://tfu.info/2007/Decepticon/Hardtop/hardtop.htm) (he was made from the latter)

so any results yet for the surfboard Al?
No!!! I even went into a surfshop today and couldn't find ANY surfboard keyrings... Maybe they're not cool enough anymore. :(
May have to wait for the dremel kit to arrive and make my bloody own <_<

Thanks for checking in, though :D

Dammit- I meant to have text in here when I posted it but got slightly overzealous after pasting in the links :b

Here's how he looks today on my work table. Am going to be trying today to cover areas with superglue to protect bits that transform. :D

Just a thought... If we have this convention thing next year I think one of you customiser guys should run a workshop there. I would love to learn how to do these cool things.
