    I was talking with Mark (wikkid) about a year ago, asking him questions about reshelling a smokescreen and 280zx.

    I'm not sure if this custom will be Prowl, Smokescreen, or Silverstreak. Most likely Prowl or Smokescreen

    I bought the supplies last year and cut up the smokescreen a tad bit. And my skills really sucked at the time, so i put him back into the box and sat him on the shelf.

    I'm really comfortable at cutting up stuff and glueing things together now, so I'm going to attempt to finish him.

    He is by far the most challenging kitbash I have done. I dont know if he will be successful or not.

    I started working on him last night (cutting up the car model, trimming smokescreen down). And today, I started glueing some of it together.

    The first thing I did was the windshield and hood, which came out pretty nice.

    Here's some WIP pics.

    Thanks Mark for the inspiration and reference pics.

    Looks great so far. I don't think I'd be able to do a reshell.

    Please do a step by step if you can. I would love to try this myself sometime, as I'm sure others would too, and I think that this would help. Thanks. =)

    thanks guys. i just hope i can get him to turn out decent.

    i'll try to. this prob. isnt the best one to do a WIP on, b/c I'm not experienced in reshelling, lol. but i'll try, and hopefully he turns out ok

    thanks man, i'm gonna need it

    lol, indeed. i couldnt find any smaller hinges at lowes. i may end up changing them.

    I'd make it Bluestreak as he's my favorite of the trio but it looks like it'll be awesome whichever character you choose.

    If you're going with that head, it pretty much has to be Smokescreen, but he's actually a bit overdone and there's been a "Masterpiece" made of him already. I don't recall seeing one of Prowl.

    I vote for Prowl as well, but that will require a light bar and police badging...

    He's looking great so far, and I can't wait to see what he looks like when he's all together! I'd love to see WIP pics along the way too!:thumbs2:

    Really? Who mad ehtis, I'd love to see it.

    ThyVipera, this is looking excellent so far. Go for prowl :rock 

    That 280z is a bit small for the Subaru mold. Did you have to modify the shell size at all so far? It looks so good that I'd guess no.

    Hopefully you and Wikkid can feed off each other's projects and get these done! Good luck man, keep us posted.
