    Just started working on my first minor mods.

    For Roadbuster, I took a head from an Armored Core "Head Unit" accessory pack and have begun a very rough paint on the head to match Roadbuster's colors. Still quite a bit of detailing and touchups on the head to go. The goal is to take at least one more Roadbuster (I have a total of three) and re-head in the same way, and treat them as drones under the command of Botcon Springer and CD Hot Shot. Add some more Armored Core or Gundam weapons modded to fit in standard TF pegs, and we've got a well-armed squadron of Wreckers.

    The other head in the Armored Core pack makes a pretty good Whirl, so I put it on Universe Springer, and replaced the tow-hook with a gatling gun from an old Gundam Model (F90) These pics are just a rough put-back-together of Whirl, as many of the internal gears are still on the table. Notice the half-put-back pegs for the tail wings. Eventually, Whirl will get a complete repaint in a more blue theme.

    Still rough, but thought I'd post the in-progress images, since these are my first bashes other than adding some silver to the face of a Cyclonus.

    These are both looking really good. That head fits roadbuster well. I always thought he should have a bulky "tough" look to him.

    Can't wait to see whirl repainted!
