    Mirage Deluxe class WIP(my 2nd custom so far)

    Another project i want to get started on, since i cant seem to find any deluxe class mirage toys which hasbro released., im planning to make a custom myself.

    So, i plan to use a deluxe class sideswipe(i thought about using a deluxe class bumblebee, but i tgink that bb is kinda bulky to become mirage) and since i figured his alt mode was not as different from mirage's(with. some minor adjustments and a lot of luck, im hoping to make a corvette into a ferrari..lol).

    just one question though., i cant seem to find any plastic filler to use, will a slicone filler be ok to use? thanks

    although the veichles look similar, they are worlds apart...

    Mirages doors go on his back, while deluxe sideswipe had the hood of the car on his back. The hood of mirage is on his chest. On deluxe sideswipe; its his fender lights that are on his chest. I would recommend bumblebee instead, as his transformation is quite similar. You may need to do some shaving but it might be eaisier than doing it to sideswipe.

    Progress pics:

    I've coated sideswipe's hood with a filler to make it smooth and to add a bit of bulk to it

    added also a joint by his chest so that his fender lights would be able to compress and mimic mirage's chest somehow. =)

    Updates:

    Car mode: I re constructed his windshield to make it a bit elevated and more similar to mirage's ferrari mode.

    Bot mode: I compressed sideswipe's fender lights to make it as close as possible to mirage's transformation and used sideswipe's blades but curved them a bit.
