    I finally got my extra Live Convoy (Evac) from Walmart, and I decided to make good on the Air Wolf comment I made a while back, I still need to do the white paints, and figure out what to do with the body. Feel free to give pointers and/or comments.

    Just noticed that you are using an Actionmaster Prime's Head, how much modification did you have to do to make it work?

    Now, I had never heard of Air Wolf. Apparently it's just Knight Rider with more flying and less Hasselhoff.

    This works.

    Here is a picture that King Starscream drew way before Live Convoy was even announced. It might give you some ideas for the body.

    I had to cut off the plastic that holds the Action Master's head that allows it to turn, and just drive a screw straight into the head, the head is a pretty solid pastic, as pick a small and short screw for the job. Removing Evac's head was a pain, had to use dremel, it had one of those flat faced screw to hold the head. Evac's head is now sitting on the Action Master Prime's body :D

    Whoa, it's amazing that close Live Convoy is to that, I wonder if they had lifted the idea :huh

    I guess red is a way to go, I don't want to make him a Nemesis convoy per se, but a convoy whose alt mode is Air Wolf

    Like a lot of people, I also first thought airwolf when I first saw Live Convoy. Now after seeing this custome (which kicks ALL sorts of ass), I'm going to have to pick up a another Evac to make my own Airwolf :D

    thefrozenred is right about the gattling gun, and the head was from an Action Master Prime, thanks for all the comments!

    That's looking great!

    I'd go for some gunmetal/black/and a little red on the body.

    The Action Master head looks awesome on there!
