    Cool mod, but I'm way more interested in that Springer. Do you already have a thread on it? Looks like new legs and a car mode were added!

    Sweet. He definitely look a lot less stubby and chunky.

    mouseak made a thread for the mods he did to Springer: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radic...ot-my-asia-exclusize-generation-springer.html

    I would also like to see a tutorial. Mainly, i want to know why you had to cut the windshield and whether that's avoidable.

    This way I would have bought him actually. The missing waist was even more of a let down than his car mode and his crippled wings. Ah, you painted the inside of the doors as well.

    This is how Tracks should have been in first place. That way his car mode would have been accusable.

    I agree. It kills me to see my Wheeljack and Tracks looking deformed. Bring on a tutorial please!

    As everyone else has said, tutorial please!


    Between this and the leg sliders I've had done, Wheeljack can finally look like he should! :D

    yes,I'm considering to do the same thing on wheeljack,it needs more modification,especially his legs!


    thx all!You can check the springer as soymonk mention,thx soynonk!

    The windshield is no need to cut down,when I start to do this I'm thinking about making the chest look smaller,then I cut the windshield down and fold it under the roof but the chest looks not so well as I expect before,so I reattach it


    thx your replies,I hope I have took some wip photos considering I'm lazy.Firstly I gule the shoulder(no more connection with the head) and then hollow the body,so I got more space to put in the waist,the waist is made by some styrene with the original one,maybe take some pic to explain later

    Thanks mouseak! Excellent work, he looks great. Amazingly I actually have some plasticard knocking about for a change, muhahaha.


    Wheeljack's legs should be no problem for you, especially if you're handy with plasticard. Either just pinch a set of sliders off of a Tracks figure, or extend the current ones a little. Or...you could test these ;) 

    If you can take pictures of the interior of the chest, with or without wip pictures, I think I can still figure it out too :)
