    Hey

    Just though Id share the progress on my latest turbomaster-to-alternator conversion.He is awaiting some recoloured Divebomb reprolabels, and some paint touchups.
    Here I present the turbomaster Flash

    [​IMG]

    And with his other WIP turbomaster buddies

    Boss still needs painting and some additions, but Scorch and Hurricane are in the same basket as Flash, just touch ups and labels

    Comments/Critisisms/Ideas???

    Lookin' cool. Pity I have NO IDEA what the hell a Turbomaster is. Eh, there's just some parts of G1 I could not care to explore - and all those whatevers ending in '-master' turn me off.

    Turbomasters! I'd have to praise you just for picking these guys for some love. Great choices of bodies and heads too - Scorch looks a bit too like Sunstreaker, but that can't really be helped considering his colours, and that Sunstreaker is the best match for the head.

    Boss and Flash look awesome - very faithful to the look of the originals.

    For those not familiar with the guys these are based on, check out our gallery.

    Keep up the good work, I love it when the obscure 'bots get some love.

    Very nice and very apt for the Alternators line where the guns turn into engines already.

    I did consider doing my own with recoloured reprolabels but I havet got the spare cash currently.


    Will we be seeing Prime as Thunderclash ? the transformation would fit really well.

    Heres hoping Argos stocks Alt Mirage as its been rumoured so I can do a Hurricane .

    Keep up the Excellent Work ,go to love seeing some of the more obscure characters

    Thanks for the props guys. Boss will be a lighter blue later on (not sure when, gotta prepare for engagement party). He will also have a spoiler and a carbon hood. The others have reprolabels to spiff them up a bit. Prime as Thunderclash? not doin a MP but I wonder how a movie leader class might go? Never even considered that. And then I'd have to consider Rotorstorm!

    Regards

    Turbomasters are the best ever. Your boss and Scorch look great, not to sure about the choice of molds for Hurricane and Flash though.

    Just wait to see them with the decals. The way I imagine them turning out should change your mind. They mold choices were based on getting the robot molds as close as possable
    Thanks for the feedback though

    The only criticism i can see is all the over spray. Apart from that it looks pretty good, but a better gloss finish would have really set it off.

    I was thinking Alt Prime but it would be nice to see a Movie Prime as something different.

    Maybe with a Meister head
