    There are very very very skilled peoples work in here and this IMHO is not worthy to be in the same board as them. To me this is more of a how to spruce up your KO.

    I got the KO blue Prowl from ebay last week. It's pretty good for a KO. I friggin hate the mustang KO's and this is worlds better! The only thing wrong with it out the box is the roof holes for the sirens!

    Blah, blah, blah... So what did I actually do besides a leg mod?
    1) Swapped heads: the KO was OK but the original was better
    2) Swapped shoulders and arms: the KO uses an off white color while the original is a combination of grey, and off white. I had to remove the wheels from the KO and put them on the original shoulders.
    3) Swapped upper legs and hip pads: again the legs of the KO were off white, while the originals are grey. The original hip pads have slightly better detail.
    4) Swapped the bumper hinge and added the retaining spring: the rear bumper just flaps around without the retaining spring. Also one of the KO hinges were loose so I swapped them both.
    5) Swapped tires: the KO tires were to thin and crappy rubber.
    6) Swapped tailpipe: The KO tailpipe was to small to hold the originals billyclub.
    7) Swapped the ankles: again ko had the off white plastic, and the original had grey.
    8) Filed and shaped the roof plugs: they had allot of ruff edges and didnt sit right in the holes.
    9) replaced front grill and lights: The KO has a red Japanese Honda symbol, the original is gold. I decided to go with the US Acura emblem.

    TO DO
    1) Remove police deco from arms and add Autobot symbols: the original BT blue Prowl has Autobot symbols where the police deco is.
    2) Fill roof holes and repaint roof: God I had painting!

    Great work man! I hope we see more from you!

    As others have said, you ARE worthy to post here! ANYone who has created a custom is! There is no clout here where you have to be at a certain level to share your work.

    We Radicons love to encourage, teach, and share with each other. :) 

    Keep those customs coming, Radicon! :wink:  :thumb

    Wow thanks for all the replies, you guys know how to make a noob feel welcome. I've got about 6 other projects planned that I would like to get done by the end of summer. All but one of which are re-creations of other members work.

    1)MP Nemesis Prime Repaint
    2)Alternators Hummer Megatron (a remake of lobo's work)
    3)Alternators Chevy SSR Bombshell (a remake of lobo's work)
    4)Classics Thundercracker Repaint
    5)MP Megatron Flak Cannon (I forgot who's work this is originally)
    6)Secret Project: An all original re-shell, that if it works will secure my place in the basher community! At least I hope :)

    Nice work man!

    The roof holes could be improved, but overall you did an excelent job :) 

    Curiously, i posted something really similar a few minutes before your thread, but with the normal deco Prowl :)
