    Well heres my take on a combining Menasor.

    I have some parts on the way to bulk out the upper arms.

    What i also need is a new camera, as mine seems to be on its way out!

    Thanks dude. I used the SE Dragstrip, with the extra wheels coming from another Mirage toy, who is now being used for a 'twin' comic character who i part of the Wreckers!

    I like it, I should though, right? ;) 

    It's as if I am having deja vu, even down to the OS feet detail. Ironically there was 5 pages of comments how his feet didn't look good, yet you still use them. why?

    I loved the OS feet! That and the fact that i picked up an original MIB Supreme for £20 kinda sealed the deal!

    I was originally going to modify RID Omega Primes feet, but i deided to stick with OS.

    I have a 'scout' car in progress to go on his waist, almost like the original toy, and im finishing off some sculpting on a 'belt', not sure if i will use it or not yet.

    I havent looked into LED lights as yet, so i drilled a couple of holes behind his eyes for the light piping to work.

    Menasor is my first combiner kitbash, and only after starting kitbashing around 4 months ago, im happy with the result.

    I just noticed that you used the same transformation on dead end and wildrider (the grey and white ones, sorry if I messed up the names) but I was wondering why you didn't use the alternate transformation scheme for one of them? Flipping the chest the other way? It's relatively easy and makes them look less identical.

    I didnt mind the identical look, as the robot heads and car modes are slightly different, so im happy with them as they are.

    Very well done, nice paint, great combined mode.

    Is that a Ironhide to Trailbreaker repaint I see???? Must of missed that one, I actually picked up an extra Ironhide for just that purpose!

    Again, wonderful job all around.

    I'll be the first to post a negative comment: Your pictures suck.

    Your kitbash, on the other hand, is AMAZING.

    It isnt too hard. Play with the camera a little and try out different settings.

    First think you can try to do is set the camera down and use the self timer. that way the picture wont be so blurry. But if you need to hold it. try resting you elbows on the table. Also when you press the button, press halfway down and let the camera focus. then press all the way down, again hold still and let the camera take its time. You can move when the preview picture on the screen shows up.

    You can get a little better lighting by switching the white balance setting on yoru camera usually identified as "WB" there are usually icons of a light bulb or fluorescent tube choose and and try it out. if it doenst look better try the other one.

    Here is a picture i took back in 2003 with a cheap POS point n shoot camera when i was in japan.

    [​IMG]


    here is the camera I used. nothing fancy. The picture you see above has only been slightly adjusted in photoshop. just a little lowering of levels. The original pic was a smidgen brighter and I wanted just a bit more contrast. Regardless, the camera doesnt matter. it is how you use it that can get good pics.
