    Ok, so I am continuing my work on an all HFTD/PCC Technobot group. Here is HFTD G1 Strafe. He's not perfect, and I need to touch up parts where paint comes off here and there during transoformation, but I think that he looks pretty good otherwise. It is also my 1st time using a little puddy to help fill the gaps on the added wings. I may try to go back and scrape off a little and re-paint the areas white afterwards. We'll see. Next will be Lightspeed. Still trying to figure what to use for Scattershot.....

    I'm a big Computron fan and I'm totally digging this. A simple mod but it works wonders. I especially like the guns incorporated in vehicle mode.

    Thanks, guys! I AM going to try to use the PCC connectors to try to combine them all at some point. I have a decent idea on how to do that on Lightspeed. I will look at the rest once I have figured out who to use for Scattershot. I am thinking of just using PCC Darkstream, since he already has connectors....however...I think I want the male ends of the connectors on the limbs, not the main body bot. Hmmm....

    So, for those that don't know...all I really did for this guy was add the horizontal fins from Universe Acid Storm to the thrusters on Sunspot, painted him red/white, and then grabbed the remaining small guns from the Generations Drift I had used for my G1 Getaway, filed off the handle and a notch, then painted them that sort of dull orange.....The last remaining little notch on the guns just fit snugly into the existing little slit on the ball joint for his shoulders, and the happen to line up perfectly in jet mode....
