    Hi All,

    This here is my IDW based Runamuck reshell. It was a Meister when I started. I'm short on time right now for more details. Please enjoy and say what you think about him.

    Thanks! Plowking.

    Thats why Superquad7 baited me to post Him. I think this one may be his favorite of my work......?


    I haven't made a Runabout yet. I do have the needed bot and car kit for it though. Should be my next custom after the one I'm working on now.

    You did a great job on this reshell man.
    Very clean.
    It's sad that Hasbro & Takara had to have a license from the car manufacturers to
    use their models. We may have seen a larger variety of cars and figures.
    It's nice to see that customizers like you are continuing the line.

    That is some nice work. Everything lines up just perfectly. I've never tried a reshell but I imagine that would be the hardest bit
    Good Stuff

    It can be tough. I first had to find the alternator I was goning to cut up for the bot mode. the Meister mold won out due to the length, width, & Height being simular to the camaros dimension. Plus only really two doors. Once you cut the rear ones off they don't count. I did have to move the back wheels a 1/4' backwards and lower the front spindels to keep the car low.

    I will also say I had around 10 hours of work into this, But sometimes figuring things out like how to mount the roof and that killed a day or two drawing it out. It is a very thought out process. Very rewarding if it works out though. thanks for you kind words!

    You thought right. I've enjoyed your work over the years, but this has always been my absolute favorite. Your updated photo gallery really does it justice as well. Thanks so much for sharing, bud :thumb
