    ***UPDATE 5/28, almost done!.****
    ***Check entire thread for progress, and last pages for newest updates****


    So, I'm normally not into posting WIP's, but I figured this one deserved it. I'm using an Alt Jazz, a 1/24 Tamiya Porche kit, a MG Gundam Ver 2.0 kit, and a lot of styrene!

    Been working on this for about 10 hrs now, and just barely scratched the surface. The plan is to have as near perfect a replica of Jazz's G1 self as possible, updated to Alternator/MP level of course.

    The front end is fully attached, as is the roof/windshield. The doors are coming along, still need the excess styrene trimmed. The rear half of the car is just sitting there, thats going to be the biggest challenge.

    Dont' mind the gundam feet, they're there just so Jazz can stand for now...and the skinny legs will be built up later:)  I plan to build a articlated "skirt" like MP Primes as well.

    Well...guess that's all for now.

    Looks like you're off to a great start man! I love a good Alt re-shell. It's something that I've still never attempted myself. I can't wait to see how this works out.

    Jarrod, you've done it again! As soon I saw the 935 shell, I knew it was an instant win. Good luck man, you know it's tough but man, it's going to be so sick when you're done!
