    It's been a long while since I've done anything significant with this guy.

    First off, some of the work I have done have been repairs. I was tf'ing this guy for a friend when all of a sudden the head broke off! This was original neck- not cheap flimsy styrene. I was flabergasted and pissed. I spent a couple nights fixing it. I made the mistake of not scrapping the whole assembly I made because I thought I could use what was there. Later I discovered that the new neck (a nail) was crooked. But since this is a prototype, I decided to eat it and move on.

    When examining the addition to the rear of the jeep, you might notice that I've given this car a big ass! The end result- that which you see in the photos- is actually the re-build of something I've done before but was crap.

    Now, admittedly, I don't like it. I am very unhappy with it- to the point of being almost embarrassed enought to call it quits on this custom. So why don't I change it? Because it is a necessary evil to achieve what I want. What I want is to hide the flip up BRAWN chest assembly, and the big ass has to be big enough to contain the mechanics (chest, hinges).

    Now, I plan on dressing this up. Add what looks like compartment doors to each side to suggest storage. Tail ligts (no, not LED's) to the back. Guns on the top. On the bottom, "ehxaust pipes" that will swivel around to become stand-off's to hold this large assembly off the robot's back so that it doesn't just hang.

    I dunno- maybe I shouldn't have posted anything yet... but it's been so darn long that I had to show something. So, without further ado, some pics:

    Damn, that's great! Where'd you pick up the hinges? Can you get them at Hobby stores? I had never though about ever, and it would come in handy on some of my projects.

    I think it looks great! The only minor gripe I have is the jeep mode being too long due to hounds upper legs.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Yeah, he's getting kinda long... but since this is my first custom I choose to forgive myself of a lot of its shortcomings.

    The hinges are nylon hinges that I got at my local hobby shop. I think they are used in flying model airplanes.
