    Hey all,

    SO When I first saw RotF Scattorshot, i immediately thought of G1 Pipes. At first I was content to just set him on the shelf, call him Pipes and be done with it. But I got a wild hair and decided to finish the job right.

    Pipes was made using a RotF Scattorshot body with a RotF Dune Runner head. Paint was Testors flat white, chrome silver, rouge red, flat black, and Tamiya flat blue. He still needs some colored faction symbols, and I may still paint the armor panels in truck mode red, but otherwise he turned out pretty well.

    I love a minor tweak that leads to a new character. Very cool. My only suggestion is to add some, you know, pipes to vehicle mode. I think it would seal the deal.

    Very cool and clever, simple but effective. Well done, I colored the guns way back, but this has prompted me to copy your efforts (Hope you don't mind).

    Holy crap!! It never occurred to me that this mold is PERFECT for Pipes... that's brilliant!

    Nice job. I always loved Pipes, though I couldn't say why...
