    I'm sort of new here, and so I thought I'd start of by posting this :] This is my first serious kitbash. Used my spare Energon Rodimus as the base, my broken Deluxe Armada Prime for the head, and movie Brawl for the spare parts and weapons.

    I ran into some problems with paint chipping on the ball joints, not sure of the plastic is unpaintable (as ball joints occasionally are) and the laquer or whatever its called getting an even coating. The grill looked really nice, but it interfered with the transformation so I had to remove it. I'm trying to find a good substitute for it.

    I hope you guys like this, and I'd really appreciate any input for the future :]

    [edit: I managed to solve the problem of uploading some images... they were too large... >_>;; ]

    Thanks for the compliments everybody. I really appreciate it! I've got about 7 pics uploaded, but for some reason they're not showing up (there's some AWESOME truck pics in there too!)

    Thanks. Yeah the paint isn't that great. I blame it partially on me being out of practice (I used to paint alot) and that the laquer or whatever its called didn't set as well as I hoped :\

    Wow! For your first kitbash you did an impressive job, some problems with the paint of course, but all and all you did a hell of good job.

    That's very nice, especially for a first shot. The painting will generally improve with time and experience. My one complaint? You should call him Sureshot, not Combat Hero Prime. :D  (in the Euro markets, CH Prime was released as a separate dude named Sureshot. Megatron was called... Archforce, I believe.)
