    I have been reading alot of the kitbashing threads and am really impressed with what everyone is doing. I have been strongly thinking about buying the G1 Stunticons for my collection but then I saw Redline's "Classic Menasor project, WIP". I have been really amazed at what he has done and the idea of doing a Classics Menasor. I really liked the idea because the cars would actually be the right size. So I have started collecting the cars to do mine (I'm sure it won't be as nice as Redline's but I can hope). I have the month of June off from work so I will be doing a lot of kitbashing that I have been planning. I am using Ultra Magnus for Motormaster, Rodimus for Dead End and Wildrider, Mirage for Drag Strip (obvious), and Cyb. Downshift for Breakdown (older style car, constantly breaking down. Here is a digibash of Dead End car mode. I hope to post the robot mode tomorrow night.

    I am thinking about changing the jolly roger to that of a skull w/crossed racing flags. The black hood I hope to get a decal to make it look like carbon fiber. I am going to trying and incorporate that on to them all somewhere as there subfaction symbol. What are y'alls thoughts?

    Cool. I like the idea, and can't wait to see more. Good luck with it.

    Edit: Oh, and welcome to the boards.

    Well guys here is the digibash of Dragstrip's robot mode. Also I was thinking about Wildrider. I was thinking instead of using Classic Rodimus again, I would use Cyb. Crosswise (or Smokescreen whichever I find).
