    Death Race Mustang custom Alt. Bot Mode Added.

    Hi Everyone!

    I was going to post these photo's 2 weeks ago or so but desided to wait till the site got the photo convertor up,and I found the time to do so.

    Well here is the Battle Damaged version and current condition of my custom. I tried my hand at dry brushing and rusting effects. I think I did okay, but would like to get better at it. I was worried I might have too much damage or too little? Same goes with the rusting.You can let me know if it seams like a proper amount.

    I have some comparision photos from my last posting. For the damaging I used my dremel and a automatic center punch tool. Both worked well. I also desided to black out the wheels and add some damage there too. Enjoy and let me know your thoughts.

    I have only taken Alt mode picks. I did this because I felt this was the most affected mode of this custom. If you want some bot mode photos let me know and I will add some in a update when I can. Thanks to everyone who has looked at and or commented on this work over the year it took to get here. really means alot to me! Marto6

    it's like a movie cliffjumper in a "stealth" repaint and then thrown at tfp starscream.

    Thanks, It's not spot on.... But get the feeling across really well. Its a mix of both of the movie cars used,and some of my own thinking toward armoring a car. Scottie Bee's was more movie accurate honestly.
    I agree! Just need to think of a name. Or find one to use.
    Yeah making all those bullet hits were fun to a degree. Just had to decide when enough was enough=). I will be adding his bot mode photos this weekend. Thanks for your veiwing.

    Hey PK,

    SuperQuad7 already warned me about your weakness for anything Death Race....=) So If I need it to go anywhere far as a trade or sale.....should my times get tough,or need some room. You are at the top of the list with this one.

    yes, this much is true!! Absolutely loved that movie!!...even DR2 was good IMO.

    And while Scottie Bee's version is more movie accurate, and awesome might I add, I am loving your take on it too....I could totally see this being an upgraded look for Frankenstein's Monster should Jason Statham ever come back for a follow up movie.

    And thanks for putting me at the top of the list for this one....to have your version, and Scottie Bee's version in my collection would be killer!!
