    hey guys thought id just share my version of mixmaster with ya.ignore the tattyness of it,im doin operation clean up soon!

    i changed a few of the proportions as i felt he has been very long looking previously.i dunno personal preference i guess!this devy has been my first build and has been a fantastic learning experience because i really have made lots of mistakes on the way to learn from!

    painting soon!let me know your thoughts!

    I see in the devastator rise again that he uses them in his combined mode.
    I'm guessing maybe it's a partsforming thing?

    yeah it is a partsforming thing.the legs/missile launchers are not needed in vehicle mode and just stay attached to devy.to do this i removed the joint there and replaced it with magnets.

    there are ways to do this without partsforming but i find that the results are out of proportion and i fell it looks better this way.frenzy_rumble done something similar to this which i loved.thanks for the questions!

    Awesome.. Good to know!
    i'm not opposed to parts forming. So it doesn't bug me. It does make an impressive and convincing cement mixer! Good work!

    wow id like to see hook made out of that!the best advice i could give you regarding mixmaster is to just get a hold of it and find your own way of doin g it.i drove myself mad trying to copy peoples design and in the end it was much easyer just doing my own.

    i was looking at crefigs devastator. i'm using it as reference. i'm doing the same mod on mine. the way you and crefig did it was more size accurate for with the other constructicons in vehicle mode. plus i find it looks cleaner in vehicle, bot and combine mode. i love it.

    thanks again for the connector pics. :)

    Roughly how big is the cement mixer tank? I found a good piece I think at the local hobby store. Tank and holding parts are roughly 2.5-3" long. Maybe 1.5" wide. Seems kind of on the bigger sider for mixmaster, but its so close I may have to make it work. Couldn't believe I saw it just lying there looking like junk. Now to find the cab part.

    yeah it not far off.dont waste ya time measuring, if ya can just take mixmaster to the hobby store and you should just be able to sight it if ya can.if its a loose item than even better.yeah mine was a lucky fit too.

    i kept barricade's truck front. you can also use the front-to-body connector in case you want to use another truck. looks flush and g1 but needs a lot of mighty putty and styrene to cover the gap once you cut the front part of barricade's alt mode.
