    Wow...I don't know where the time goes. I started really picking up alot of overtime at work, my daughter is out of school for the summer, and next thing ya know I haven't posted a custom in forever.

    My digital camera just died as well, but right before it parted ways with this earth I took a round of pics of a project I wrapped up, and I have about 7 more to post once I get a new camera so you'll be seeing some more of me soon.

    Annnyway....here's my take on a Tank Megatron, using a rail gun from Cybertron Thundercracker, and arms from Armada Smokescreen of all figures. I also modded the arms to add much more elbow movement.

    Very clever idea, I really dig it. But also, I would love to see this with the lower arms and fists rotated 90 or 180 degrees so the canopy is hidden more. Great paint work and kick ass gun too!

    Nicely done! the painting is pretty sweet, but I also think the Armada Smokescreen arms are a really nice solution to the problem of Deluxe Megatron's arms.

    I always knew that version of Megatron had great potential.

    Nice set of fixes for that G2 Megatron. Personally, I like the idea of Megatron as a tank... unfortunately there's been virtually no incarnation of that alt mode that seems to work well. Until you added them fixes. XD

    Something is really cool about this, aside from the excellent craftsmanship.

    Both modes have much more personality now, if that even makes sense.

    Great concept-a forward-thinking tank design that humans could have built.

    Nice choices all-round, excellent use of C. Thundercracker's cannon.
