    Well, its pretty much done, and the title pretty much explains it all. I used the minicon from PCC Huffer. I added bullet holes and rust to Kup to make him look more old and Kuplike. Im still waiting on some parts for a handle for the TM, but hes pretty much done for now, plus I have people wanting to see him. Ill try to get better pics tomorrow when my friend with the camera phone isnt drunk. He turned out way better than I expected though. It looks alot better than person, the pics make the brown look more like camo, but it looks more blended into the blue in person.

    Just finished the second Kup. I should have more pics of them both tomorrow. I put less rust on this one, and added gashes in addition to the bullet holes. I also the the part for the TM in the mail so it doesnt look so awkward in gun mode. LMK what you guys think.

    Love the repaint and weathering, but man, there has just gotta be a way to make that minicon gunmode less.. awkward..

    Makes me wonder.. how if it's at all possible it would look to put the original Kups head on that mold.

    Yeah, there is. I have a lego part coming in the mail that will plug into the minicon port and provide a handle for him, but for now, this is what I have. :)

    Thanks for the input. I will be making another of these, as I have another Kup on the way that I bought for a friend. He wants me to do this to that Kup as well, Ill make that one with less bullet holes and see how it looks. But the reason for so many bullet holes, is I loved the movie Death Race, and thought it was awesome just how shot up the cars got, so I did that to Kup in truck mode.

    I think it's more the distribution that looks off; it looks almost too even. On the whole, you probably wouldn't get as much gunfire on the roof and hood as you would along the sides. You could try staggered lines of holes along the sides, since a lot of gunfire would be either from strafing runs, or directed against his moving vehicle mode.

    Also, since TFs use a lot of weapons other than bullets, it might be a good idea to use bullet holes more sparingly, but with a lot more laser burns, and maybe acid holes, that sort of thing. You could also maybe carve slashes into his armour from melée blades.

    But of course, you also don't want to overdo it. :p 

    It's a cool idea, though, and a pretty decent job. Good luck on Mark II!

    i love the weathering, but i'll never understand why people torture their toys with forks and nails for "battleworn" it seems unrealistic everytime for me!


    i love what you did with the paint-apps and the figures looks quite good, but i really don't like the bunch of holes there...

    The bulletholes may not have came from Cybertronian weapons . . . .

    :wink: 

    I'd like to see some more photos :)

    Um. Yeah a lil overkill on the battle damage. Sometimes less is more.

    I've already told you that I liked the custom, but after the comments above, I think I might concur regarding the *placement* of the damage/gunshots.

    Still, great work! :)

    For version 2.0, you might want a better, more appropriate Targetmaster for Kup, like Ramrider's "Backlash" - inspired by Kup's original Targetmaster, Recoil.

    (No, Ramrider is not paying me for this plug...but if he wants to, I'm just a PM away. Heh.)

    Bwa-ha-ha! My evil plan comes to fruition.

    ...actually, I'm just going to enjoy them vicariously through you, since I'm even more poor than Rattrap.
