Last year some time I had the idea that I was going to turn Cybertron Hot Shot into Hot Rod. I started a WIP thread, but as I got into the disassembly I realized that what I thought would be a simple little repaint was turning into a bigger project. I was also getting pretty frustrated with how my red paint was turning out over the blue plastic. I eventually shelved the project until I saw Cybertron Excellion and some of the other repainted versions of him on various kitbashing forums. It sparked my interest again and when I went back to work on him, the whole process went much smoother and I learned a lot as well. I know it's a repaint that's been done to death, and I'm a year late getting on the boat, but here is my vison of Cybertron Hot Rod: For his gun I simpley glued the rocket into place, drilled a hole in the barrel, and cut the spare back wings and glued them into place so his gun would resemble his G1 rifle. A couple of the small details I had fun creating were a custom Illinois license plate and givinig him actual rear tail lights. Leg stickers that I created and printed using a variation of the G1 design. It's kind of hard to tell, but the seat detail is painted silver. I also put a Autobot emblem on the steering wheel and custom printed gauges on his dashboard. If you look, the space is actually molded above the steering wheel for something like this.
