    Hello all,
    Here is my take on Roadbuster. I stated with the ironman crossover truck, and a shapeways head and gun kit. I sanded and repainted (brushes) it with Tamiya NATO brown, NATO Green and a mixed flat orange I made buy using orange and flat base. I am for the most part fairly happy with how he came out (not my best work but not the worst) but I plan on adding a brush bar to the bumper I made, making a back pack, BFG, swapping out the head I used to a better one once I can source one or commission one. Please CC are welcome. Thanks for looking and I will update or start a new thread once done.
    (sorry for the crappy I phone pictures, my camera is MIA at the moment)

    Super clean and nice. I'm not a fan of the bumper though. Too long and square.

    How do you handle the rub issues on this mold?

    Thank you, The bumper is still a issue, I am going to work on it. I may replace it or take your advice and make it smaller/shorter.

    As for the rubbing, I sanded/cut down the rub spots but still have some rubbing, I am waiting for the paint to fully cure before I transform it again. This mold is tuff for them.

    I like it! The paint looks awesome, and it's a great alt mode choice. Well done!

    Hey, I like this approach a lot. Do you plan to post any more pics? I would love to see the hummer mode to see how these colors work out when transformed.

    Thank you, I will post some more pics soon. I honestly placed him on my shelf to cure and just plain forgot I never took pictures in alt mode. I still want to 100% finish him up some time as well. I am still looking to change out or mod the bumper further.
    Thanks :)

    I like your style!...
    Been wanting to do this myself for a while!
    Great work, and if you don't mind me asking, where on shapeways can I find this Head and Gun kit???

    Thank you for the kind words. I went to shapeways and just seached under roadbuster and found them that way, I don't remember the name of the seller/artist.
