    A fun commission I just started....what you are looking at is the beginning stage of a very unique project that I hope to get done in the following month. Right now I'm finding the right sized wheels to fit the scale, the ones here will probably work for the rear. There will be a scratch-built detachable G1 Prime-cab in the front pulling the trailer. The trailer will be painted, have new squared end-caps, and will have the look of rear doors. It will be roughly 20-inches long, about 11" high, and 30" long combined with the cab. It will hold 8 bottles and will have working running lights. Lookout, Pepsi Prime! :drunk

    Thanks! I loved the idea of this when the client introduced me with it, what's funny is, I think this would've easily worked as an Ultra Magnus project as well... :cool: 

    There will be a scratch-built G1 cab as well in the front pulling the trailer, and will be detachable and have working running lights. :D

    Yes! This will look realy cool when it's done...

    This will indeed be a fun project, the hardest part will be finding matching wheels for the truck and trailer!

    Thanks for checking it out man, I hope to be done for the most part in about a month...

    It will be really cool to pull off, and it will have working running lights along the top front of the cab, and headlights too.

    Yes! To wash down those Energon-Os :D  :drunk

    Good LORD it's hard to find a bunch of matching wheels for this sucker! Now that I got all the wheels I need for the trailer and rig, I can move forward. Finally got the rear wheel axles and axle-bracket mounted and wheels on. Also replaced the endcaps, added some rear door panels, and will add some more detail later on, including a rear bumper. Almost finished with the trailer, so I will be moving on to the tractor/rig/cab next.
    :D
