    This is the base-coated fem bot decepticon called Eleanor. I am completely obsessed with Mustangs and had to do this conversion. Arcee's head was used along with some bitz from a couple Mustang model kits for the scoops and lights. I am going to detail the exterior with black full body racing stripes and of course finish the windows, lights etc. What colors should I finish the bot with though? some purple, light silver? Suggestions welcome.
    PS I realize this is a little hulky for a female robot but since she's a Decepticon I figured she is entitled to be ugly ;)

    This is great! I started one of these a couple of months ago but abandoned it for my Animated Hotrod project. I had actually bought a model of the actual car and was gonna re-shell. If you dont fold the hips up completely and cut off the tabs under the torso so the front of the car lays flat you can pull off a more "curvy and feminine figure" Definately keep us posted with progress, This certainly should be one bad-ass bot!

    lol other than SQ7's advice, I'd suggest NOT going with silver and purple as your highlight colors as that'll make it that much harder to distinguish from Barricade.

    :rock  Love it! Don't use silver or purple like Redline said. I would go with some other colors for accents.

    Yes actually it has everything to do with her, i was actually quit torn between making her an Autobot or not lol.
    Thanks for the paint tips definetly want to separate her from Barricade's ugly mug, I swear he has to be the worst deluxe figure in the line.
