GWMP-3 Masterpiece Sockwave from scratch

Postby Gladky » Wed Nov 19, 2014 2:54 am

Ladies and Gentleman. After many hours of work, cutting tons of styrene and a lot of painting I proudly present to You my latest creation:

GWMP-3 Masterpiece Shockwave

Image

Model was designed and built completely from scratch. My main raw material were styrene sheets (0,2 and 1 mm thick). Front of the chestpiece was additionaly covered by two plexiglas panels.

Image

My Shockwave is inspiered by his appearance in Generation 1 with some slight detail changes.

Image

It has many points of articulation including articulated fingers and wristjoint. Compilation of all the joints makes some really nice poses possible.

Image

Model has six LEDs that were built in Shockwave's eye, gunarm and backpack. Battery is easily accessible by magnetic hatch on the backpack.

Image

Backpack has four LEDs installed within it, which simulate level of energon. I installed four additional hinges in the waist that allow for more leg movement without huge holes near the hipjoint.

Image

Shockwave has a few small nice details like hand cut miniature Decepticon insignia on forearms and shoulder panels, both of which are inspired by original design.

Image

When electronics are turned on Shockwave's eye shines with bright yellow light.

Image

Whole model was carefully painted and covered with clearcoat to match original Shockwave's style and to look good next to other MPs.

Image

Speaking about other Mps. Shockwave is about the same height as Masterpiece Soundwave. I think those two look really good together.

Image

Decepticon is also not afraid to fight Angry Grimlock.

Image

Image

Image

Shockwave's forearms are built in a way that allows to put halves of the gun mode cover on them. I also installed metal pieces within covers and magnets inside forearms to make sure those will stay together.

Image

Custom is fully transformable. The result is huge cannon inspired by G1 alt mode.

Image

Thanks to special flaps on the back of the robot mode legs cannon can stand by its own.

Image

I leave You with one more Shockwave's photo before he can join other Decepticons on my Masterpiece shelf.

Image

There's one more thing I want to show You - Shockwave in the darkness - LEDs to the max:)

That's all I wanted to show You today. I hope You like it. Please feel free to comment.

At first I thought it was non-transformable. Glad to see I was wrong. Very well thought out. :APPLAUSE:

That's an amazing piece of Transformers art you made there.
Do you accept commissions? If not, are you going too?
If you do so, how much for an custom MP Shockwave as you made already?
