    Started with Cannon Bumblebee. Modified the arms to give him Hot Rod's arm guns. The color is a mixture of Tamiya red, a few small drops of Tamiya black, and a little Tamiya chrome silver. Very beautiful color in person. He still needs a few coats of paint, a lot of detail work, and some custom flame decals. Also, I've decided on using Chromia's head. She even has that wing-like thing on her head. Watcha think so far?

    Looking slick! Chromia's head could be interesting for him.

    Looks good. I think the head and the flames will really pull it together. Id make the pipes a shinier silver, though. Any hope for exhaust pipes in Alt Mode?

    Very nice concept. Great call on the Chromia head and the arm guns look great! The blocky Cannon BB chest looks awful in the original figure and doesn't flatter the Chromia head, though. Maybe it would work better with the Preview BB mold?

    Thought about that, but wanted something different from Bumblebee.

    Thanks for the feedback.
