    First off, I am never doing a reshell again. Those of you who successfully do these things are the true masters. This thing was going to be a fully transformable reshell, but I f'ed it up at the last minute, so now it's an "action master". I display all of mine in bot mode anyway, so no big deal.

    Anywho, I took a United Bumblebee, did a reshell with a 1/32 Porsche '63 Turbo kit, used a WFC Cliffjumper head, and voila'. Now we have G1 Cliffjumper. Only thing left to do now is find a giant cannon for him to use. Also pictured is Classics Goldbug (United BB + Goldbug kit from Venksta, plus I did the door mod so they wrap around the feet now instead of being on the arms).

    Sorry for the bad pics, for some reason I had an especially shaky hand today.

    As always, comments & critiques are welcome. Enjoy!

    Looks good, but if I may ask...how exactly did you screw it up?

    I lined up the legs properly when I applied the adhesive to the right foot/leg and attached the outer shell. Yet, for some reason, after it dried it shifted everything and it was lower than the other leg. Not noticeable in robot mode, but the right side doesn't line up right in alt mode.

    I did each individual thing correctly, but you need to do them in the proper order. Otherwise, you get to a point of no return and there's no real way to fix it without scrapping the whole project. Basically I got ahead of myself at a certain point and couldn't correct it.

    BUT...I'm lying already. I think I will tackle a reshell again, but with a VW bug shell this time for a BB project.

    This is probably going to be considered an asinine request at this point, but could you post pictures of the alt mode...even if things don't quite line up?

    it look fantastic!<--- this and,

    personally, I haven't been able to find any 924 models in 1/32 but, I did find a guy in the u.k. who sells resin bodies . Wheel wells are a bit large because they are for slot cars but, they look good to me. Not to mention the bodies are a lot stiffer. when i get to them, I hope the glue holds. lol
