    Yo dudes & girlies!

    I got a second Energon Arcee for free, after I butchered the first for my Movie Groove (only using the wind-defelector)
    Then I though damn those fixed exhaust (on the arms) look fugly, same goes for the Energon thingy's (not even sure why they where there in the first place :crazy: )

    So I got my dremel removed the chest thing (I will fill it up and make boobies later ;) ) and also got rid of those nasty exhaust pipes, took a leftover ion-blaster which kinda looked like an actual exhaust trimmed down the Arcee (leg-peg) melted a hole in the side of the gun and pressed it on (let it cool down for a minute) and PRESTO!

    I need to find a way to make those ugly wheel-halves on a balljoint....

    UPDATE2:
    Yes I've did it!! Now I need to see if I can swap the front wheel to!

    UPDATE3: (Damn I love working on those small cute little bots :p )
    Added new front wheel with extra swivel (can be detached for extra pose ability)
    Added new wind(deflector) front and attached to the hips
    Tomorrow I'll checkout the hands (elbow is ok for now)
    Finally I made her a triple changer, which is an extra trike/mobile artillery :drunk 

    UPDATE3B:
    Digibash colorscheme added...

    UPDATE4:
    Need help mixing the right color :(  I've decided I'm gonna match the Energon Arcee head pink, anyone who know or has tips to achieve that?
    Below are the REVELL colors I have left, I get good result from them I barely ever need a 2nd coat and almost no brushstrokes etc.

    UPDATE5:
    Since no one answered my question or even read them..
    I found a WIKI page, which explain how to get most colors...
    So I started with lots of white and added a bright red until I was satisfied!
    I'm afraid this mold has extreme rub issues that I couldn't solve :( 
    Alt-mode pics not sure... I'm afraid of transforming it *SIGH*
    maybe later and perhaps add some simplistic white/silver racing decals :p 


    UPDATE6:
    Well didn't think the alt-mode would look like this :p  So I'll leave it without decals for the moment, since I'm to scared of transforming anyways ;) 
    The tutorial isn't necessary I guess that's why I took lots of pics!!

    not bad man. gives this figure a world of difference and makes her feel less thown together. the one thing that i hated on the mold were the way the hands were. (small gundam kits have the right size hands)

    Basically, just chop off that hinge joint and add the ball joint and socket for each arm. :wink:

    Your custom sucks. And it will continue to suck until you put up a tutorial on how to replicate this. ;)

    That is cool the pink is cool. Future floor polish or whatever product to seal the paint up so transformation isn't a nightmare for you and you're right she does needs some silver decal or something to break up the pink a bit.

    can "future" be applied/done by brushing that on?? I do have an airbrushcompressor, but no airbrush and even if I had one still couldn't use it on the bed due to my health :( 

    thnx!

    Future can be applied by brush. Just be careful it can cause air bubble so take it slow and easy and you'll be fine.
