    Hi decided to pimp one of my old customs up! Im turning this battle ops bee into a non transformable bee with dotm mods.
    Ive started by relocating his wings to a more central postion as well as adding the two window sections that hang down below the wings.
    I've also relocated the two tail light sections that were on his legs to the correct position under the wings. These mods are no where near complete and have been roughly fixed into place.
    I've also added a ball joint in the head and plan to paint the eyes as I had to disable the electronics.
    I plan to sort out the chest and leg sections by modifying them using scratch built part and a body repaint is in order any advice on getting a good bumblebee yellow/gold match would be greatly appreciated !

    Ebay:
    looks promising so far, love what you did with the door wings. I have been working on a similar theme with the human alliance mold for far too long, but I'm glad I've been putzing because the dotm leader bee is a goldmine for parts for a custom bee project. I can't tell from the pics, did you attach the qtr panel window wings to the hinges, or just right below them.
