    Thanks!,
    Yeah the Cyclonus was a commission project that was a G1 and Movie hybrid, should be obvious what the base was.....

    Hopefully within a week I should be able to get that Prime/Mad Max Finished. Just trying to decide on the bot mode... should he echo Mad Max or another character? Ah... just thought it was a fun idea, and maybe in the end it will find a good home after all is said and done.

    Oh yeah I updated the pics as I found where I put the other ones, so there's one ALT pic and another full shot for you to see

    I'd like to see a Thunderdome variant of the truck. Toss it on an O-Scale railtrack and throw a cowpusher on the front. That'd pwn.

    Yeah, I was kinda trying to see where I could get a cowpusher to fit this sucker for cheap.... I hate to have to try and scratch-build one. Got any reference for the thunderdome version?

    Check Google to get screen caps on the vehicles used. In regards to the cowpusher your local dollar store might have some cheap locomotive you can part out. The dollar store is an awesome resource for props and parts. A lot of my diorama pieces came from the generic Army Men sets they carry.

    Wow...your paint apps are badass! What'd you do to accomplish the rust on the stacks and the mud on them tires? Are those watered-down colors with a wash effect? I am lovin those tires. Throw some small globs of rubber cement on them and the fenders and you could have caked-up mud!

    Mostly the rust is a mix of shaved chalk, thinned paint and glue. The mud stuff is similar but thicker and not so watery. I was going to do more mud when I realized.... hey how much mud did this truck go through? Not much I'm guessin'. Rubber cement..... hadn't thought of that one yet.... will try that next time I do need more mud, thanks.

    Alright where I need some good input would be ideas on the bot mode. I need some suggestions on how to make him fit into the theme. Already have some ideas... but I have a feeling someone here might have some great ones.

    Also I need to still put the barbed wire on the tanker and the cowpusher on the grill!

    Peter Cullen wears a Cowboy hat. Why not your Mad Maximus Prime? Personally I think it'd add to that desert wasteland feel. It wouldnt hurt to have a nice array of weaponry either.

    That is flipping Awesome. I actually watched that movie the other day and noticed how incredibly crappy it is by today's standards but nevertheless I'm still addicted.
