    hey all my first post here, i been kitbashing for a while, useless info is i have a background in crafts etc, im a professional graffiti artist from the uk which i do for a living but kitbashing is a hobby

    this is a first for sharing my mod work on any boards


    its a pretty heavy mod

    - repainted using dry brush also fine brush details

    - fixed cannon arm i added an elbow joint also an LED on the cannon tip and added a firing cannon

    - remodelled the head and also raised it above the shoulders slightly as it was sat too low and he looked like he had a hunchback

    - i also added small parts to the figure here and there to change the shapes etc to make it more like the movie


    thanks for reading ill try to answer any questions thrown at me

    hey thanks all

    yea he still transforms, the only problem i had was the shielding i added above his gimp arm, it was an oversight so what i done was removed it and then fit it on a hinge allowing it to make way for transforming,


    i did also put an extra piece of shielding on the gimp arm to bulk it as bit

    im doing a few diorama'a next probably the fallen and optimus, and also bumblebee vs ravage


    in everyones opinion what is the biggest best sized bumblebee i can find? the biggest i have found is the human alliance one but its pants

    Even I would be hard pressed to pass that up, if I saw this in a store.
