    Just doing design tweaking currently, as I've got other people's stuff to attend to, but here's a digibash I did up just to get a good look at how everything goes together, make sure it works, etc. This will be my first Alternators Repaint.

    **The face will definitely not be that color, but much lighter in shade I just didnt' want to wash out the facial details in this picture!

    looks nice and it works, but kinda boring in alt mode since at this point pretty sick of black dodge ram repaints, what with the trailbreaker customs and 2 black primes to choose from.

    somebody should do a blue repaint of this mold, as huffer or something.

    looks pretty good. so many possibilities with this mold for characters. I am in the process of making a blue one into Soundwave with his own Laserbeak

    I've had the plans for some time now to make a silver repaint of this mold, most likely into MM as well. However a part of me wanted to make a *gasp* Alt Mirage into MM as well (if for nothing else, just to have the "Geewun" shock factor).

    I wish you well on your Alt endeavor, RL! I think you'll find yourself in my boat soon with Alt customs . . . :lol

    Smear some purple over the green and I think this scheme would work well for Motormaster.

    Looks good! Though personally, I'd go with the truck being silver as only Motormaster's cab was black, his overall body was silver. Plus that way, he'd stand apart from the other black Ram molds.

    True. The black could be only showing in robot mode.

    Silver with black accents gets my vote. Even better if you can figure out how to make it into part of a combiner. :)

    Not a bad idea Lance, and with some black highlights like Spekko said it'd probably work well.

    not a bad idea... black racing stripes, stylized only slightly on the hood could not only simulate his grey and black chest more properly, but I think that could look sharp in truck mode as well...


    This is why I like to do digibashes and share them before a big project, its a lot easier to make changes before you actually start than after :lol

    Thats true, i always recommend that to new bashers. I just have a question though, i know the colors wont be like that but is the actual head mold gonna be like that from youre digibash? i just dont think its close to the original motormaster, it needs to be more pointy and what not

    Hmmm... what about black at the front, blending into silver at the back?

    What? Creating a digibash color scheme illustration before jumping in on a project? I recommend that to any basher, no matter what his/her skill level may be.

    Granted, sometimes you can pick up a piece in your hands and have it on your work space generating ideas, but it's never a foolish thing to plan out your work before you start in on it, kitbash or anything else. ;)

    that's not a bad thought... right now I have it done up as a silver truck that has black racing stripes, but at the front they're not done up in the standard way. They are wide and a little unique, and then separate and get thinner as you move back so that in robot mode it looks similar to the original, but overall its just a racing stripe scheme that's fairly realistic. I'd go ahead and post it up, but I really did a number on the stripes and so they need fixed before I show it again :redface2: 


    EDIT: forgot to address the head. the head is gonna be a Sculptbot original. I don't have a finished picture, but here's one he took of one when it was a WIP:

    that head is basically a smaller version of the same head that TFMaster used in both of his MP Menasor kitbashes


    Here's an improved version I think: first I impersonated the leg mod, then changed the actual truck mode to silver with black modified racing stripes so that he's not another black prime, yet still has basically the original g1's chest design; then I changed the shin to include a bit more black to better represent how he had the black cab with purple windows and silver grill as feet.
