I finished Dead End a while back, but woo doggies, its been a rough couple of weeks. Anywho, on to Dead End:
Dead End is a fatalist. He doesn’t really care about anything given that he knows everything has to end eventually. Of course, this makes him a bit of an asset on the battlefield seems he’ll take on missions most Decepticons wouldn’t think twice about.
I used the Reveal the Shield Jazz mold for the custom. I replaced the head, and removed the spoiler. I have to admit, I had some trouble with the paint and I’m not too thrilled with the final result, but I’ve learned some valuable lessons for the next project.
While Dead End looks a bit ‘beat up’, I suppose it kind of works for a guy who spends his time crash racing around.
I used liquid masking tape for the head lights, and that was a mistake, seems it gooped up and became unworkable post-painting.
There seems to be a connection issue that I can’t quite pinpoint in the back. So yeah…meh…not my best work, but a decent enough start.
Much, MUCH more to come! Stay tuned!
