    !!!!!OPEN FOR COMMISSIONS!!!!!

    Here's something I've been working on lately. It's my take on an updated version of Tracks using the C6-R Vette'. (not the roadbots version) though I guess I had a good idea to do so seeing as how they also have made 2 versions with this model. I started at the beginning of last year and took a some time off because of a death in the family but I'm back at it now and making some good progress. I am currently working on simultaneous projects for a couple of members here, a Masterpiece Wheeljack for Keith, a Masterpiece Sunstreaker for Payton34 and a Masterpiece Jazz and Tracks for sale on ebay.

    As an added note: This won't be the "stock/factory/production" version of the C6-R that Revell produced. I am doing my own take on it with modified fender flares,spoiler,air induction hood (as seen in the pics) as well as other amenities I have yet to add like l.e.d. eyes, massive weaponry with launching missiles on his shoulder cannons and a custom paint job done in deep metallic/translucent Indigo with dark Charcoal Grey accenting and a Phantom Flame Eagle on the hood. I just wanted Tracks to be the baddest new "Vette I could find out there in 1/25 scale but it's going to be a fusion of this Le Mans racing model with a street ready feel. Let me know what you think.

    Nice! :thumb :thumb  That MP Screamer torso seems to fit perfectly. Can't wait to see Tracks come to fruition. :)

    Yeah, for me it's the 350 engine of Transformers because it is the most interchangeable, modifiable and has the perfect transformation mode for re-shells along with being a Masterpiece transformer with all the upgrades on articulation like in the hands and leg movement. Each time I just try to disguise it enough that even though you might know it's Starscreams body, you still get the feel when done that it is the figure you are remaking. Like with the Sideswipe I did originally.

    I love the versatility of that mould. Being able to fold into a pretty even and flat rectangle lends itself to countless projects. This is looking amazing so far!

    Yeah, that's one thing I always try to keep in my customs is the original style of transformation but it also can be a hindrance because it isn't always the easiest way to build these figures. It tends to prolong the build but hey if somethings worth doing it's worth doing right. Right? lol
