    So, I know that the Alternators are 1:24 scale. Would it be possible to take something like a model kit from Revell in the same scale to take it apart to to the pieces on the Alternator?

    What I mean is you would take the Alternator´s car parts apart so that just the "skeleton" is left and put the parts from the model kit back on.

    Anyone done this before??

    Yes a number of times. There are quite a few Porsche Jazz kitbashes done in this method, as well as some hummers, and I thought I saw the General Lee once.

    Cool, thanks!! I´m thinking about a Chevrolet Camaro G3, but I don´t know which Alternator would be the best for this.

    Was it easy to attach the kit parts to the Alternator?

    Cool! Make sure you post some pics if/when you do it! Not sure on scale, but would look cool with a Movie Prime done up like Rhino. I think I saw that digibashed somewhere on here...

    The M.A.S.K. vehicles are the same scale as the Alternators. :D 

    Yeah, I thought about that too. Either Rhino made like Movie Prime or the other way around.
    I think Movie Prime done like Rhino is easier cause you´d just need to repaint him.
