    ****UPDATED 04/08****

    The following was intended to become Divebomb via the reprolabels set. However, after (botching) an attempt at removing the flames, the following was created. I give you Cybertronian Bodyshop.

    He started life as Autobot Ricochet

    He was destined to become Decepticon Divebomb

    Buffoonery has made him this....

    That is funny, the only thing that would make it better is to put a ridiculously large tailpip on him, give him a bigger spoiler, and frog out the wheels.

    I take it that whatever method you used to remove the flames dulled the plastic that that. I used isopropyl alchohol and a Q-Tip, they came right off without any bad effects.

    Hell I'll do you one better than that... use a popsicle stick for the spoiler. And get rid of the "chet" half of the plate

    That's right... "RICO"

    He'd look good with a head light duct taped in too.

    Unless you're dead set on this guy being "Bodyshop", I totally see this guy being able to be used for a custom that doesn't look like a mismatched Alt.

    Don't worry, he'll get better. I'm going to school for Autobody & Paint, and I'm already skilled at wiring lights/stereos and such. I'm going to be adding some things to this guy in the future (weekend) to make him a bit cooler. And his name is temp; might change. The one thing that won't is his color. I'm going to add more damage, if anything.

    Also, I'm pondering scrapping the muffler in the rear and adding pipes straight through the hood. All I'd have to do afterwards is make a fully-body exterior cage ala demo-derby and I'll be set. If I can figure out a way to keep the c-pillars without the rear windows, expect him to be glass-less. Netting is way cooler.

    PS: Didn't the primer tell you he's a work-in-progress?! ^_^
