    A while back I stumbled across a 1/32 model kit of a Hummvw M998 Avenger and thought it would make a great Alt mode for Roadbuster.
    I really wanted to make Roadbuster different to the Soundwave i did with this mold so i made the front wheels detachable,gave him Alt Wheeljacks hands,
    altered the tops of the shoulders,added tail lights,new hubcaps & a load of extra armour details.

    Most of the robot modes extra details & guns came from a Serpent Custom Gundam kit,The head also came from the Gundam kit wich i resculpted & added a few 40k bits.

    Just to give Roadbuster a "little" extra firepower i gave him the experimental Pathblaster cannon from the Time Wars comic (Marvel U.K.).

    Roadbuster was painted with Games workshop Acrylics (mainly Dark Flesh,Vermin Brown & Dark Angels Green)

    Finaly Can anyone figure out what the I.D. markings on his side in alt mode mean?

    Way better than movie ratchet. Was never a fan of the original bot, but this is definately a great use of the mold.

    Awesome upgrade! He really looks great. THough I can't picture him in a movie setting. More a comic look and colors.

    Very cool stuff you added. And very nice paintjob!

    Oh wow, I just get my internet back last night and the first thing I see is this?

    Probably your best work to date, which is saying quite a lot given the amount of amazing stuff you've done so far. LOVE that tan color, just amazing, and the new head as I told you over on S70 is factory too man.

    A+++ sir, now go to the head of the class for the day ;)

    SWEEEEET!!

    I've been considering a Roadbuster from this mold for while now (I have a green Ratchet that I just can't stand to keep that way any longer), and this turned out better than I'd hoped. The little details really put it over the top. Nice recycling of that 1/100 Serpent kit. :)

    Stellar as always Spurt.
    That head is perfect & I really like that fact that
    everything you have done here, has taken away most of the movie look.
    Paint looks flawless, but I would expect no less from you.

    I love that you went with a SAM modified Hummer, that's just ace. Stellar painting, as usual too. My only complaint is that the wheels have to be removed, instead of them being rigged to move to a new location.
