    Well, here is #1 from a series of 6. The project's taken a few hours longer than expected. In the day you'll get to meet all 5 Stunticons, whom I despise of right now. A big thanks to Redline for inspiring this project

    Breakdown is basically a repaint with minor mod Classic's Sunstreaker. I reshaped the head and gave him some sexy water-slide decal. He's painted with 100% enamels, air brushed lots of krylon fusion.

    There's plenty of options, but basically it's a case of removing the bits you don't want (cutting or filing them off), and building up the new detailing, either by sculpting (epoxy putty of some sort is usual), or building the shape with pieces of plastic (like styrene sheeting and strip).

    Fantastic work. This might be my favorite from the group so far. Love the color combos.

    Really great stuff.

    man that look great, but then I didn't expect anything less. After seeing those alt mode pics I'm starting to feel that that mold suits Breakdown better than SS lol

    Well, for this piece, I shaved off the chin guard thing, and shaved off the top ½ of his head (everything above the face) I also cut off the things on the left/right of his face, and replaced them with styrene. I then added some random kibble parts as a new top half of his head.

    hehe. thanks. I'm sorry I can't fathom how people associate the name "optimus" with anything other than a red and blue semi... :)
