ah, I get it, the generations seeker mould.

ironically I have a design for replacement guns for those that I never got around to producing, past a prototype that didn't quite work. something more akin to the size of the G1 weapons relative to the new vehicle size. also converted between missile and arm weapon. I really should get on to that at some point.

Two years in the making...

I have a soft spot for the G1 Seeker mold.

Because it's utter class. The visual appeal of both modes is so well designed.

I had started this just before my second son was born. Customizing took a back seat for a while but didn't realise it had been that long haha.

Awesome work! I love this kind of stuff. No doubt the rest of the seekers will have weapon envy.

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.

Thanks mate. Clearly a case of "mine's bigger than yours" will be going around haha. Now to decide which seeker to do next (well after the current one I'm working on).

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?

When I did Acidstorm I was really surprised at just how well the detail on the panels, especially the wings, still shows even after so many coats.

Purple seeker... what makes you say that?

Edit: You saw my FB post about what I am working on didn't you... haha sneaky.
