    Afterburner (Computron test) WIP

    So...here is a look at Afterburner. Some serious mods to this little guy. Added additional wheels in the back and custom made the whole canopy section. Still working on some additions, but wanted some feed back as is.

    Is the Canopy section from a G1 Lightspeed?

    I think it might be from a marvel crossover.....

    looking cool, although I'd ditch the flip out cyber key weapon thing. I think you could make it more clean by doing that.

    Right on Satomi...you nailed it. I was going to use it on Lightspeed, but this worked out.

    Thank you all for the input. More hopefully soon.

    Thanks guys...still some work to do on the back kibble. I would like to get the lower windshield to rotate upward, or have it removable all together and have it be a shield in bot mode.

    But as someone said, if he is going to spend most of his life as an arm in a combiner, it's not too bad.

    Thank you very much! You original Energon combiners have been a big inspiration into these works.

    Yep...can't leave them all Christmas colored ;) 

    Good eye...I'm gonna have to start a thread on him as well.

    Thanks bro! There is still some melding to go though :) 

    Thank you sir!

    A little more work on this guy...got the guns to flip around in Bot mode, gave him some side arms in ALT mode and added some epoxy putty to prop his heals up to make him taller and more proportioned.

    Thoughts before I go to adding some Styrene to the sides of the canopy?

    Well...after a long break I finally have had some time to get back to this whole project. Some major updates to Afterburner and finally some prospects of Computron combined. Scratch built the cabin and some digi pics on final paint options.

    I have extended Afterburner's thighs to give him some height in Bot mode to make that backpack less bulky. I'm back and forth as to if this has made improvements or if it makes the Arm mode an issue.

    Speaking of which, that is what is making the shoulders on Computron a bit bulky. Because of the length increase I had to flip Afterburner so the forearms were a better length. Next to Bruticus I guess it is not too bad, but it could still use some work.

    So, any questions, comments, complaints are quite welcome as I can still make alterations at this point.
