    Having a hard time retiring. Can't stop the plastic crack. But yeah, Here's an old project that I never got around to finishing. Might get back on it cause I love Lambos. Alot of the work on this one can be found in the tut section under "Basics of styrene part 2"

    I'd prefer to stick to selling on Ebay but I have been known to sell to those who make nice offers.

    I've always wanted to see Sunstreaker done up right in MP style and scale.

    Another promising figure!

    The thighs and pelvis look so familiar (that is the dirtiest think I think I've written about a transformer)....WHOM do they belong to? Are those G1 Prime Lower legs?!

    Anyhow, this is gonna be fun seeing you figure out the normal problems with this transformation.
    I'm certain you can do it, but I'll be damned if I know how.

    Made some progress and alterations to this piece.
    [​IMG]
    ^^Lowered the whole body. Got the basic arm structures together. The upper arm will have more meat on em when done.

    [​IMG]
    ^^ The arms do hang out quite a bit in robot mode. I can either leave them and just say it's G1 accurate or cover them in a bumper assembly. What say you?
    Also, anybody have a matching 1/24 scale supercharger?

    i think if you cover them up with the rear bumper it will look great

    you could add some diffusers to the bottom to help hide them more if the bumper doest cover it

    like this

    I'd go with covering them up. Looks great.

    I was thinkin......

    [​IMG]

    Which would make Sunstreaker a 25 anniversary Countach in a way. I just don't want to change all the other parts to make it accurate to that particular model.

    The diffusers are a great idea but they don't fit the period of the Countach. Heck, the ribbed styling would actually enhance the arms.
