Custom G1 Red Wing
 
Well no more teasers, just straight into the pics. Finally managed to almost finish this little project. Just the stickers to come which I am still debating. There is also a tease for my next custom in the final pic.

Let me know your thoughts. I really enjoy taking all these ones apart. After the next one I may switch to using an airbrush and see how that works out.

I've been debating whether to use a G1 seeker missile launcher as his guns or to use something else. The something else I am trialing in the pic is a modified gun from G1 Metroplex.

Nice teaser, better than a shillouette :D

In regards to your debate about what to use for the missles.
Why don't you just use both ??
Then that gives you both that modern look or that vintage updated look.

Yeah I couldn't help myself with that pun :p

Re: the missiles, biggest issue is lack of junker pieces. I want to do a few more custom seekers and don't want to waste both on 1 piece when I can only display it with one or the other. The gun in the picture is just a test using a junker metroplex gun. If I do go ahead with those (which I'm leaning towards) then I will make them so they fire with missiles.

Fair enough, just don't oversize the missiles too much or it'll make the figure look squat in robot mode, since the emphasis will become the large missile launchers. But, this is just opinion ok, nothing else :)

Coming along nicely but the paint is being a little temperamental...

It looks great, especially when teamed up with the other two, I'm not sure how much I like the weapons. but that's just me.

I know what you mean about the weapons. I was taking my inspiration from this picture.

I wanted a similar weapon and colour scheme but also needed it to be able to use missiles like the original seekers to give it that G1 feel. Unfortunately they are a little bigger than I would have liked.
