    See this thread for some previous pics. I will be posting updates on my autobot battle team which is also a combiner team in this thread when I have any to post.

    The autobot battle team will consist of:-

    Karuga :- shown below
    Ironhide:- being painted
    Sureshot:- based off an alternator smokescreen which I have coming
    Kup:- based off an alternator jazz I have coming
    Scavenger:- will be based off a TFU 2.0 inferno, once I find one for a decent price.

    Karuga shown after basic modifications have been performed. He had undergone a head swap, had a tail added and I have also made the jets nosecone piece removable so it can be used as a handheld weapon and will play a part in the combined mode.

    Done some painting on the members of the team. {Ironhide has just been sprayed white while Karuga is being painted a darker grey}

    ironhide {colour test} [more red has since been added to the robot mode parts. Which will not be visible when he is in vehicle mode.]

    Had very little time to work on these guys but I do have some small updates.

    Scavenger:- Crane arm still being worked on. I would have liked to remove both of the front lights but one is part of the head release mechanism and thus is essential to the figure. I have swapped out the original head for a new one, which needed to have a faceplate and a balljoint mount added to it.

    That is sick. In a fantastic "I used hard acrylic plastic in a way that's going to rip a hole in the universe" kind of sick.

    I'd love to see more close up shots of the head, and also a guide on how you did that nosecone mod. Total Cybertron Sideways vibe.

    Wow, I really like the way that the extra tailfin assembly changes the proportions of the jet, and makes his under-kibble less noticeable.

    I love how you were able to mod this and keep the transformation intact. Excellent work.

    Updated the first post with a new pic. {I've had a lot of work to do and as such all my customs have suffered delays due to the lack of time I have had to work on them.
