    Tracks started out as a TRU G1 reissue, I scratch built hinges for his knees, and shoulders, made his elbows rotate, and put his head, and hips on balljoints.

    Great work once again turboedguy! These always look so clean. It's awesome how you can get away with not painting and still being able to TF these guys

    I can't get enough of these G1 upgrades you're making. I'm always eager to see which ones you've got planned in the future. Tracks is as good as any you've done so far. Really cool!

    Thanks, I have a few planned before Hotrod or Rodimus, but I do have a targetmaster Rodimus set aside thats doing nothing.:wink:  Im going to post another G1 probably tomorrow, then I have a scratchbuild im working on, and ill probably do a WIP thread on that next week, so it might be a while.

    You sure are making this look easy turbo! Tracks, just like the others, is flawless. If I had more time I'd copy your work.
