    Thought I'd try something different this time so I attempted drybrushing. Not sure if I like it but here we are. All built from a Masterpiece Starscream and Energon Shockblasts feet, the rest is styrene and platic filler. The sparing droid and sheild are still a WIP as well as the Rodimus armor. As before, he's got lightup headlights and matrix bay. Full interior is from the 77 Trans Am kit that the headlights came from. Canopy opens, wheels turn, sawblade rotates, some parts are removeable for toon accuracy but otherwise remain on.
    I'm gonna put this one away for awhile and revisit it later. Hope you d00ds find it entertaining.

    EXCELLENT WORK, Mark! I've been waiting for this one for a while now and you definitely brought your A-game on this one. This is literally perfect. Seeing it with your Scourge and with that MP Starscream (and knowing it came from one of those) is just the icing on the cake.

    Now I'm wondering what else you've got planned. This is some of your top work, bro.

    Absolutely glorious Mark. Wow, you've really made an MP Hot Rod. It's such a great likeness and the finish is amazing. All of the work you've put into this really shows. the led's, wear & tear, metal flake, re-engineering, etc. all blow me away.

    Thank you for rocking this with style and class!

    I will always fail to understand how you guys pull off such amazing stuff.
    I am truly in awe of this piece.

    Watch out for Protoman, he's going to love this if he sees it.

    Flames are painted but the black outline is a stripe. The colors used are Dodges "Sunburst Orange" (Typically used on their newer Daytona trucks) and Toyotas Rosebud pearl (It was the most pinky/maroony colour I could find) The yellow is just some crap that was on the shelf at work.



    Thanks for the high fives d00ds, this one was alot of work to pull off and I hope it doesn't disappoint.
    I created a "building with plastic fillers" tutorial while I made this project and should have it up within the week.

    :O

    Whoa! Beautiful! Simply Beautiful! *picks jaw up from the floor*

    & once again your MP proves how versatile the MP Seeker mold is. But then again, I wonder how p#ssed Screamer is in that his body's been rebuilt into Hot Rod... :D
