Default 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.

So did you just spray it straight on the toy, or did you have to lay down a primer first? From the photos, it looks like a nice smooth finish

Two coats of primer first after a thorough cleaning of each piece followed by two coats of the paint and a coat of clear lacquer.

I agree the finish is awesome! The red used and little bits white made me really wonder what a G1 Seeker in G1 (toy) Jetfire colours would look like..

As for your next project, is it the purple seeker?

Nice teaser, better than a shillouette

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

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...
