Dusting off my Cybertron Hotrod

Been a long time since I started this guy. I have been touching him up a bit though, so I thought I'd share


With Kaiyodo Matrix


With Sterling Matrix WIP


List of things I've done to him:
Reworked head (trimmed and added styrene)
Sanded chest smooth
added styrene to lenghten chest
Hands from Cliffjumper
Sculpted wrists
Cut windows off doors and glued to roof
Trimmed hinge so roof could open
Swapped out lots of parts from blue version of the mold
Drilled and added pipes from clocker to legs
Added third triangle to each shin guard
Cut out spike area of fin (behind his head)
Cut out Matrix cavity (Still need to work out chest hinge)

yup. I'm still working on the car mode hood (filling/smoothing the air vents) but I can snap a pic anyways.

Cool. The new chest and the paint apps definitely scream Rodimus now. Hadn't noticed how effective a repaint to said character would be.

Good stuff.
