    Here are some more updated pics for you guys. I know I said there wouldn't be anymore until I finished but I figured why not give a early look on the progression thus far.

    Well all the modding and what not has been finished for days. And the basic painting and detailing is almost finished. All I am waiting for now is a nice sunny day where I can seal it and let it set for 3-4 hours.

    The part I am loving the most is the cannon I in my own opinion I feel I really pulled of the look of it. Especially with the fin the disappears at random during the 80's animated movie. The orange isn't the final color of the cannon I still have sum highlighting to add to it to get it that golden yellow orange color.

    So this will be the last pic. Expect more next week once I get my camera and buy the materials for a light box/Photo booth.

    P.S. The hard part thus far was painting the red squares on the abdomen area.

    Looks great so far, man. Can't wait to see what you do with this one (I did one earlier this year and I'm still working on some mods to it before posting any galleries for it anywhere).

    Galvatron has always been one of my favorite characters, so I always enjoy seeing the different versions that all of us do. Keep it up, bro.

    Yep I had the same issue with my Leader version and it didn't look right at all. Also are you adding a rear support or is his but just gonna drag on the ground in alt-mode?

    It was hard as all hell trying to cut the cockpit out to fit the turret with this being the Voyager sized one. And yeah he will have a rear support. I was thinking of modding the front landing gear post and using that.

    Yeah I think I will. It just sits a shade or two, too high for my tastes.

    Rodimus Dawg, I just want to say I think your sig RAWKS and it makes me laugh every time I see a post of yours. XD

    Sweet custom, by the way! Any major alterations to the robot mode? I'm anxious to see a cannon arm. :)

    I may or may not have pics up of the arm cannon up as early as tonight or tomorrow morning. My son is having a pretty bad bout of asthma and if he is anything like me it will knock him on his arse for a day or two. So I have halted work on it for the time being.

    And as far as major robot alteration just a neck mod far. I have some Gundam hands that I might mod to fit his fore arms so he can have the Matrix grasping action. Just gotta find the mitts.

    And thanks for the sig compliment I revel in my addiction lol.

    Neat looking cannon. There aren't many Pens that are the right size for the Leader so I just used a Blowpen spraypainted orange but I love what you did here. Also I figured out on mine that I can give him back his original alt-mode plus a gun mode with the way I did the supports. Man I need to post some pics.

    Sorry I was rambling, Sweet job so far but I have to ask, what color are you going for, Purple or Blue?

    Yeah I had to. I tested it out with the rear support before cutting them down and he looked more like a Observatory than a cybertronian tank.:lol 


    The quest for the perfect cannon took about two and a half weeks of hunting I went as far as 30 miles to find one and I found it at staples.

    And by Original Alt mode you mean the Plane/Jet? If so that would be sweet to see. Please post pics of that if you ever get the chance. And as for color I'm going to try and get to as close to this as possibly can.

    Two weeks to find a cannon :O Wow. It's hard to find a match sometimes.

    Yep I meant the plane/jet. It looks pretty sweet in blue. Just need to get my camera working.

    Also nice job on the color choice, I prefer the blue interpretation myself but hey it's all up to you.

    Oh yeah I just posted mine, go check it out.
