    Hi guys, the story continues with the 3rd and final member of the squad...
    And since I'm so friggin' proud of this one, I'm gonna re-modify the other 2!

    Here's the first: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/361680-classics-insecticon-shrapnel.html
    Here's the second: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/362454-classics-insecticon-bombshell.html

    STORY CONTINUES (final part):
    Together with my new friend Shrapnel & Bombshell... we searched the house for the last remaining member of the team. Shower and Toilet where obviously the first place I looked :D ... No sight of Kickback there, but suddenly I heard a scream coming from the sleeping area!!! We rushed over there and found my girlfriend shocked that there was a grasshopper on her favorite pillow. She almost wanted to smash the creature to pieces, when in the nick of time we convinced her it meant no harm (well I guess!). So finally the family was reunited and I notice they didn't look-a-like. The the leader of the team answered, that they had to scalp/scavenge for parts, that's how their paintscheme wasn't like back in 1980's. So I volunteered to lend a helping hand to get these guys the paintjob they deserve ;) 

    I still need the G1'ify the robot-mode head, so pics will follow and when all members reach final WIP phase I'll make a new thread and story as soon as the complete team reaches 100%

    credit goes out for Nemesispringer he gave me the idea to use my spare Energon Ravage as base! THNX
    Further legs are from E.Cruellock / Arms from TM.Cheetor+TM.Rattrap and some G1/G2 sort of insecticon / Wings are from BW2 TonBot ... and some more!

    UPDATE2:
    Digibashed a few slightly different paintapps, I need your votes!
    A. chrome/silver
    B. chrome/silver + transparency (default orange)
    C. chrome/silver + gold
    D. chrome/silver + darker shade silver (me + my GF's favorite!)

    Does anyone know how to remove the orange dye to get them completely clear?
    (if it's possible then these following option would be even better :D )
    E. clear
    F. chrome/silver + clear

    UPDATE2B: (added botmode sneakpreview)

    UPDATE3:
    added a more evil looking head (probably temporarily) until I get a G1 head
    (need at least 1 maybe 2 G1 Kickback heads... anyone who knows where to get them cheap?)

    UPDATE4:
    Well since I got not a single answer or vote :( 
    I don't know how the extract the orange dye/paint leaving it clear...
    I guess if I don't have an answer by the next 24hrs I'll just do 2 shades silver
    Added Aerial Assault mode... DONE! now in cleaning phase, painting tomorrow!

    UPDATE4B:
    Final teaser pic added + I decided to go for silver first and maybe add the 2nd shade later if Necessary :p 

    UPDATE5:
    It's done I'm so friggin' proud of myself (just need some touch-ups!)

    Thats pretty cool man! Too bad you had to butcher a Takara Jetstorm. I'm cutting the wings off of one today myself.

    I know, little to much, but I like it... it better matches the other insecticon members :) 

    It's currently in it's paint curing phase...
    so I can't wait for the break of dawn and assemble so that I can show off the complete team!

    I'll be making more insecticons, but they will be my own new fan-characters and hopefully combined with the current 3, make a MASSIVE monster!!!

    I'm yet to decide if the combined-mode will be robotic or a giant creature :crazy: 

    (I can tell you this current individual creation is my personal fav :p )

    I think having them combine into a giant grotesque-looking insect beast would be awesome to see
