    first and for most i want to apologies to my customers that are waiting for their repro parts to arrive , i have lost lots of packages in the post (the slovak post is amazing ,cant track lost packages that were sent with tracking ..)

    i have one more state exam before some of u guys can call me Doc , i have been studying vet medicine in the last 5 years and this last exam (poultry and wild game ) is the most boring subject ever , after 3 state exams (one which i have failed and had to redo ) my ass is flat and besides studying i cant realy do anything . so in order to change that i have decide to start this bash after darkcave customs AKA autobotx23 made his 2 versions , i had this kit laying in the " to be bashed box " for almost 1.5 yrs .


    Kidbash Roadbuster conversion kit ,one if not the most horrible bot ever - Captain America Marvel crossovers -this kit was released by Kidbash ,and most of the parts are molded from the original G1 Roadbuster, this mold is one of the most annoying bots i have ever worked on , lots of paint rubs etc...

    The cast parts were a pain in the ass to work with miniature air bubbles and lots of fitting , but it is still an amazing kit . i used mainly enamel paint( 3 shades of orange, 2 shades of brown, 3 greens,brass,silver,gold) acrylic p3 paints(brown,orange,green,black,white ) ,tamiya acrylic paints(orange) ,washes with acrylic and ink (p3 yellow ink).

    I had to sand down the chain mill that cap had on his hood ( that was a major set back , IF U ARE PLANING TO DO THAT PLEASE DON'T -ITS NOT FUN AT ALL )
    I have removed the star from the hood and the shield ,and replaced the wheels with some plastic wheels from some random cheap truck ( those wheel are so thin and fragile that i had to fit them on the original wheels) , i also used the truck's front grill as an alternate grill .all the extra bobs and bits are attached via rare earth magnets ,and are not glued .

    Decals are from various gundam/zoids decals .the autobot decal on the hood is a water slide decal , and the autobot emblem on the shield is from a ko decal sheet .

    I have decided not to use the added plate for the backpack and instead i just drilled holes in the roof of the alt mod .

    alt mod pic will be posted in a day or 2 , after the paint will cure sufficiently.

    c&c are more then wellcome

    Awesome work my friend! I had an original import kit of this guy when I was younger, If memory serves, he was part of another series altogether before he got "indoctrinated" into the Transformers

    Love the custom tires, and the decals, and the use of Cap's shield, just BEAUTIFUL work all around, I think this is my favorite execution of this build, I like it better than my own even!

    I mean Shapeways already do a Roadbuster head, and a rifle and hands.

    Calloway75 is the designer.

    I got a set.

    I've been trying to respond in our great forum on HydePark but of course that website is cra*, so at least I can respond here.

    I LOVE what you've done with this figure. I love the head and the articulated hands.
    One comment that you got , remaked about how the hood is clean while everything else is dirty. That's about all that I could think about as well, but you already settled that saying that it's for the alt-modes' benefit.

    Reminds me of your Galvatron figure, which tank mode you dirtied up while the robot remained clean.

    Simply awesome, keep it up man!

    the Casa's(Calloway75) head is nice but i find it too long in the mouth so to say, it throws the whole thing off in my mind.
