    this is the last one I have worked on, sadly since is imposible to find action figures in my country (or at least very hard)I havent found a bumblebee figure to get the head for it, either way is still missing some pieces to finnish it (like the door windows glass and some parts for the legs), either way would like to know what do you think about it
    it started like this
    [​IMG]
    then cutted and painted (2 camaros used)
    [​IMG]
    and after 4 canyon carvers (hot wheels bikes) and some other cars parts here is the result so far

    Holy crap! As I started looking at these, I was impressed by how well it turned out as a total scratch build figure. Once I read what the scale was I became even more impressed. Very nice work for such a small scale!

    I honestly thought he was re-shelling a deluxe class figure with die-cast parts. When I realized it was a Hot Wheels car I was not disappointed. The details you've managed to incorporate look fantastic. Keep at it, dude.

    first of all thanks for all the help offering messages, you guys rock, however I wont be in my country for too long (moving to Argentina)so I wont get anything you send me at time (and mail get lost here so....)

    either way I decided to try carving the bumblebees head on acrilics (and will be the head it will have untill I find a better one)
    just wanted to share the pics with you all

    I'm guessing here...
    WST = World's Smallest Transformers.

    But I've got no idea on what BT is...

    :eek: 

    Dude! I am IMPRESSED! Work that detailed on such a small scale - and with metal! What do you use to cut the die cast metal so presisely? And that head turned out great.

    Great work all over man! Good luck with the move!
