    built from a old project.
    this is essentially a classics sunstreaker,turned into classics redalert,then again into overdrive.
    ever since the hasbro version came out,this project was removed from the display shelf and returned to the bash bin.

    back to the bot, mods are
    headlights removed and cavities filled and sanded.
    spoiler chunks remove and holes and indents filled and sanded.
    almost 3/16 of an inch were ground of,filled then sanded in order to allow him to stand upright with his legs mistransformed to make him look different tha streaker and swipe.
    the original sunstreaker head was again modified from red alert's head into overdrives.alot of grinding down and sandin and filling was used to get his head into this angular shape.
    a sliver cut and formed from a cd case forms his head visor.
    rocket pods were salvaged from a cybertron armorhide(small blue coe semi),cut down,flattened out underneath and fused into his rear bumper halves to give him some hidden weaponry ala g1.
    his crotch has been switched around,along with some mixing and matching going on with his arm.(left with right,right with left,etc).
    alot of his details on his legs were simplified back to good old fashion blockyness with some more skim coat and sanding.
    to give him a somewhat different front end in alt mode,vinyl was first hand cut and laid onto the primer before the top coat,giving his headlights and marker lights on his hood some added depth.
    his double blaster is a combination of cybertron landmine's gun and some lego bits.the single cannon is a mix of cybertron defense force redalerts claw weapon mount and the cannon from classics onslaught's arm.
    nuff blah blah,pics...

    with the lower leg mod,this is what the roof ends up looking like.

    Nice work, this is really clean. The air mode also reminds me of when the Autobots would have to go on water. They would all have some sort of hydrofoil pop out of the bottom.

    I always wanted the omnibots as a kid. I can remember staring at the mail away flyer thinking about having them to play with. I never did get any, but this makes me want to try and make some for myself... Again, good job!!
