    Hi all,

    I will be taking pictures for a gallery to go on Transtopia of Ratchet on Thursday when I'm off, but I thought I would show a sneak of the almost finished custom. Also here you will see my WIP BT Thundercracker (previously shown) and BT Skywarp (new). Feel free to post any thoughts. =)

    Enjoy,

    -Gregg

    Nice job. Hopefully you took care of that decepticon symbol on the front plate.

    I am halfway done with the initial paint application for Starscream right now.

    By the way, these are all made from Binaltechs. =)

    To answer a few questions......Yes those are Autobot symbols on the seekers. Will they be there when I am finished.....NO WAY! =) The heads are from the prospective BT figures......The seekers are made from BT Bluestreaks......The heads are modified by the removal and sanding down of the horns and I also cut and shaved off the chins to completely change the look of the face.......ALL BINALTECH BABY!!!!! LOL

    Wait until you get a peek at my Starscream......It's coming along REALLY good......Still more painting to do......and not to mention the reassembly of all the parts......
