    This is my second attempt at Motormaster using the Cybertron Leader OP. Credit to Frenzy Rumble for the idea (that "I" got it from, there may have been others but I only saw Frenzy's).

    I am making this one for myself in between other projects so it will be slow but I am doing everything the right way - no short cuts and no rushing. I also have BIG plans for this guy and lots of cool details but nothing too crazy. I'll be adding some things as well that didn't come with the figure. I also am using a more worn look instead of the cleaner look.

    I put some chrome accents on the legs (just a little bit (I completely stole Frenzy's knee pipe idea - sorry man (but again, this one is for me)). I am adding the hint of chrome here and there because this one as well as other customs I am doing are being made to fit into my 'Classics HENKEI Class' figures, which most of them have chrome.

    Updated (Nearly finished one of the legs). I am thinking I am going to keep the rims all black - I will highlight there edge work though probably with a really dark shade of grey or even gun metal, not sure yet).

    UPDATE: Welp, decided not to mess with the factory rims. I left them alone after all.

    Update: Finished Head (but will be using a Frenzy Rumble head down the road). Also, finished inside chest cavity. No matrix this time. I did highlight some edging (first time doing this), I find that it really brings out the depth and subtle details rather nicely.

    Lookin good. I got one of these waiting to become Motormaster as well, gonna build myself a Menasor eventually. I'll be doing that one a whole lot different than the rest of em though, it'll be a big project I think, maybe even bigger than Devastator.

    Thanks! I will be doing all of the Stunitcons eventually. I have a customer who I'm currently making Breakdown for and I already made him Wildrider. I'll be doing exact copies of them for myself when I have some more free time. I already have a spare Mirage for Dragstrip and I'll be giving him the 3rd axle as well. There's a lot of love going into this one, he is my newest favorite custom to do!

    UPDATED FIRST POST - All I have to do now is the shoulders and that's about it for this one for now. I am working on sculpting a helmet box/cowl out of styrene and also some 'behind-the-shoulder' smoke stacks that will be additional to this figure, then that will really be it.

    Very cool man! The face looks very organic and the outline technique your using works great with this piece. Can't wait to see the final product. I might have to take a couple of your ideas. With your permission of course.

    Thanks guys, Iron just trying to get some sort of reflective look man that's unique but appreciate the honesty. Thanks Will of Unicron; go ahead and take my ideas, I do it to others.
