    I think I finally got this guy nailed down, for a deluxe that is. Let me know what you think.

    Looks pretty cool. It'd be nice if you could add some kind of armaments to the front end but I'm not sure how. I think some painted rims would look really cool too.

    Cool, what parts did you use? I want to do the same thing to my Roadbuster and even made a thread about it in the discussion forum, but I don't have any parts that work except maybe 3/4" movie War machine's gatling gun to put on the front of the car.

    I started exactly the same project. You just inspired me to re-pick up my one and finish him off :)

    I used PCC leadfoots parts, Spoiler, exhaust, and I had a old metal engine block that I found from a old model car. I wanted to add more guns to the front hood of the car, but the way he transformed, I couldn't.

    How were you able to keep the doors shut flushed without the guns popping out? The only way the Mechtech ports work on the doors are in robot mode, otherwise when in vehicle mode the hands behind the doors get in the way of plugging any mechtech weapons due to lack of clearance.... I'm curious to know..

    If you plug in a weapon on RB's arm in bot mode, you will notice that there is a green peg that shifts outward when a gun is in place. Simply cut that green peg flush with the arm and presto!

    Really nice upgrade !

    The only nitpick would be the green paint at the crotch area doesn't quite match the dark green paint plastic.
