    So, I've decided to jump into this great world you guys call Kitbashing. I want to eventually create all 5 of my idea's to go with a custom I'm getting made. My problem is I can't decide which one to start with. So which one should i do first ???

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I used Boxart because it's easier to edit in Photoshop, to get the colors i wanted
    I also didn't want to really use any mold that have been done before with the Predacons. Wrangler for Tantrum & Corvette for Razorclaw were no brainers. the rest I wanted to got for a different look, And yes I'm crazy enough to"Bash" Mirage

    Hit me with so C & C guys, This "noob" looks froward to it.

    Well since you sig and avatar are Nemesis Predaking using the tracks, swerve, ravage alt, I think you should do that first.

    Is he going to transform? I ask because both the arms and legs are based off of alt's rear sections. Ops primes tailgate/bed and ravages rear quarter panels.

    :ev: .....youre hooked for life now....:ev: 

    If it were me doing my first I would go for the easiest one first....the Jeep mold....I've done enough Jeeps to know that its the easiest to disassemble out of all the Alts....

    Just get yourself some good tools and you'll be on your way :thumb 

    The resource thread is your friend for answers, and feel free to hit me up anytime too...:D 

    Love the new sig.....and I think I prefer the blue lens/eyes in your sig over the red in your digi.....and the blue tips on the rockets too....;)

    Man those are some sweet concepts ! ! !....:p 
    How yuh gonna do the heads though ?...they all look pretty trick !
    Easiest ?....NONE of them look easy...to me anyway.
    You might need Plowking on speed dial....:wink: 
    I hate dealing with pins, If I can't unscrew it I just mask the #*~% out of it !
    Good luck !
    Let us know if/when you need anymore help !

    Thanks Guys. I haven't quiet figured out how I'm going to do the heads for the bots yet. I know I can find a way to Intergreat the beast heads and wings into the designs. I'm thinking about using bondo to cast a molds of the heads and "adjust" accordingly. Seeing how I do all the autobody work for my company i have great access too alot of tools. I just picked up Skids today because he was there, and as I type I'm dismantling him. I'm not liking the pins at all. Defiantly thinking about "masking the #*~% out of it". I've been reading over all the guides i can find, hopefully I can pull it all together and come close to my concepts. I'll post a WIP thread once i have something worth showing. next step is to acquire the rest of the alts I need, But first my wife has to give the ok.
