    well seeing as i have not really shared a full blown wip project i thought i would document this and present it to you. one catch i am not reveling the identity until i can no longer hide who it is. code name groundpounder is exactly that it may refer to the identity it may not.

    as of now i have the ground fx's fleshed out and i have turned the roof pieces into a shield. the white is merely to give me an idea of what it will look like in a solid color as well as show me my high and low spots i need to sand and fill.

    no worries guys this will be completed as it is a commission project i am working on. also if you are in the KNOW of who this is keep it to yourself thanks :) 

    9/15/08 UPDATE well i think it is looking rather obvious who this is especially in a day or two when i add pics with the wheel color and window tint

    No, he said if you know who it is, keep it to yourself - as in if he's actually told you (as I assume he has with some). He never said anything about speculating.

    I'm inclined to go with Wheeljack, based on the bumper add-on and the spoiler. That being the case, I'm particularly interested to see how the robot mode works.
    Of course, based on the same alt-mode, it could always be Slicer... ;)

    Alternity Rumble! XP

    Whaddya expect me to say with a title like "ground pounder"?

    Personally, I'm hoping for a spiffy Sideswipe. Maybe Windcharger.

    (I'm ignoring the white color as it may or may not be the final color of the figure, apparently.)

    Wow Anovasinn, the way you made that body kit makes me wanna go out and get one of these guys and do the same for myself!...

    I never did really "care" for the mold, but seeing it with your kit makes it look really nice :thumb 

    Nice work man....looking forward to the outcome!

    Looks pretty good so far. I have a couple of ideas of who it may be. When I saw the thumnail image in the Radicons, it actually looked like an Alternator custom. Keep up the good work.

    thanks man for the nice complement. i am surprised you do'ny like this mold its one of my fav

    as far as the identity guys it has been done before with this mold however i have not seen it taken all the way like what i plan on doing with this one. the shield idea came from another member on this board. the ground fx's came from a cliffjumper custom i seen except mine are shaped different. i think i am going to try a smaller wing but that depends on if the commissioner accepts that.

    i am glad y'all are enjoying the mystery. i cant figure out how to keep it under wraps though with the next phase of work.

    speculation is fine its just i think two ppl know who it is so thats who i was talking to

    At first glance, I would've guessed Cliffjumper

    That's looking VERY nice so far! I can't wait to see the end results, just like the rest of us :] Quick question though: Did you make the spoiler and front modfications from scratch?
