    So, the short version is this: thanks to some friends, a little bit of paid work, some computer modeling, and modern-day 3D printing, I've obtained a female head designed to fit onto the Arcee/Decepticharge/Windcharger mold.

    It's a little small, but I find it works - it's like a woman wearing big bulky armour. And as the one pic shows, if it was any bigger she couldn't transform.

    I'm looking for suggestions, too, on what to name the former Decepticharge. Part of me wants to do like a lot of people do, call that car Dragstrip, and just say that Dragstrip's a girl. Mostly because I've got ideas for the rest of the Stunticons using KOs.

    Anyway, here's the pics! Please forgive my painting and photography skills...

    Personally, I think the head is too small. Also, I think the jawline and chin are too square. I like the design overall, though. The helmet design is really keen. :thumb

    Pretty neat head work you've done here.

    I think (if possible?) I would have like to have seen the head a little lower maybe?....with not so much neck showing.

    Still, with that, it's a cool piece :)

    It is small, but I want to keep the ability to transform - and as you can see, if it was any bigger it wouldn't fit in Altmode. The maximum height-width-depth of the head is actually slightly larger than the original's, but the curvature makes it look smaller.

    But if it didn't curve, it wouldn't look feminine, so whacado?
