    Hi again all, since i last posted i have seriously looked into painting and modding my new Transformers collection (spent a wee bit more cash than i should have, started with 3 now 20 odd figures and a lot of paint within a month lol), and started with my Crankcase.
    I noticed there was no crowbar out yet and after seeing the third movie for about the 10th time I decided to look further into making my own.

    Now please forgive me for being a noob at this but I have no idea what the terms are for modding such as scrath build etc lol im just guessing.

    Here is my work so far..

    I have added a new chin to the head because im gonna swap them over once the new one arrives tomorrow hopefully and I have no patience what so ever. I bought a hasbro doc oc with big mechanic legs to add to the Crowbar as his dreads.

    Im not long finshed with the base coat for his weapon too so that will have a small amount of bronze added to the decal.

    He still transforms perfectly but with the other im going to have a bit of trouble hiding the big dreads if the arent too big.. might have to get the dremel out or use the old lego technique and lust add and remove when in car mode....hahahaha not that im sitting playing with them.

    Anyway, I wanted the blue because in the movie i recall both of them having blue on the metal so after the silver base coat i dry/semi dry to get the desired effect.

    what do yous guys think?

    I'm loving that shiny blue/teal and that bottom jaw.

    a wee update..

    im 99% happy with the results so far so thought i'd post a few pics..

    the 1% im not happy about is the size of the big dreads on Crowbar, but the only alternative is to slice each one and im not confident with the tools I have availabe so they will do for now.

    I'm in 2 minds on how to paint the decail on Crowbar aswell, Crankcase has a nice bronze colour but im thinking of more deep blue to keep them different looking. Any ideas?

    Excellent! Only thing I'd add is some black on their chest and legs and a few small bronze details on Crowbar.
