    Hi, everyone! this guy has been in the works for awhile and I have decided to show him. Its a Alt Grimlock made in the style of the "Death Race" movie. It's not quite done yet, I have to put on the wheels and paint it in flat finish.

    I do have one question, should I do him in battle damage, or keep it clean as is. Let me know what you think, I'm a little torn.

    comments and thoughts please

    So what Are you waiting for, send it to me? Fricking Amazing. Personally, I would have throw some more Huns on their, in 1:24 Scale, those styrene ones seem to take away from it. Maybe it is just me......

    Scootie Bee,

    Really nice work there! The guns you made look really good too. I used some guns of of Dune Runner. I felt they were closer to scale. Did you swap wheel off of something or is that a BT Knock off which has Chrome wheels like those? Far as Clean Or Damaged goes. The car in the Movie Has damage on it more then not having it. I intend to battle damage mine to a degree. I don't want to over do it. I se that you used A ALt and not a HA Barricade. I will say that yours is more movie Accerate then Mine. Again Nice work.

    I like the clean look, but battle damage could be cool.

    Thats awesome and an awesome concept, so many more to make now! My only small knit-picky (sp) is make the panels on the lower leg fold in or tri fold...something like that. but battle damage that mug!

    F-ing awesome. nuff said.

    Although I've never seen the movie, I'd like to just see it weathered alot, like it's dirty as hell. But that may be just because I think of mad max.:thumb

    f you do battle damage do it lightly so it wont take away from the look of the toy.

    It looks good, but you have the Tombstone WAY too big, it doesn't go up that high on the rear end, if you can scale that down some, then it would go from good to great.

    The wheels are from a 1:24 scale mustang kit. Thanks for the comments, I am finishing it up and adding battle damage this weekend. I'll post some better pics when finished
