    this is my first custom scratch build.

    It does have a transforming gunarm, battle blade, battle mask and shoulder cannons. It also has a steath mode in car mode.

    let me know what you think.

    the next month i will be covering the entire model with greenstuff, hope it turns out well

    Here's the last update, I have rebuild the front of the car with styrene, more pictures are on page 4.

    Since when has Bee been white? But other than that, nice job. I can tell you really put some effort into it.

    Its cleary a WIP, a very cool one at that too. Good effort, but why make a figure if it already exists? Seems to me a Leader class Barricade would be fun to have with leader Bumblebee.

    I should have said Wip in the title, but I forgot and I don't know how to edit that.:dunce 

    And the reason that I decided to make this is because I wanted a bumblebee that was more movie accurate then the leader class toy, since all the toys have the windscreen somewhere on the back, and this wip doesn't. because the windscreen folds into the body.

    also thanks for the replies

    I don't know if I'd call this Ultimate but it is very creative. Nice effort.

    i've added some details to the feet, but they still need a little sanding and a lot of paint.

    If anyone has any comments, I'd be happy to hear them

    here are some pictures of the hands, he now had complete fingers, which are fully articulated. of course these hands also need a little sanding and a lot of paint.
    the last picture shows both hands in weaponmode

    i have a problem

    these are a few pictures of the chassis of bumblebee, I wil have to cut and sand any excess bodywork. after that I thought about covering the entire body with greenstuff and then sanding it down, to create a smooth chassis.
    but I am wondering if there isn't a better way to create a smooth chassis

    So, if anyone has any ideas, of suggestions, they would be highly appreciated

    Good effort so far!

    Have you used Greenstuff like this before? It's not easy to sand on its own, although if you mix it with milliput it's better. One of the recent tutorials a few months back used some auto body filler to nice effect.

    I've almost covered the entire thing with a small fortune worth of greenstuff. I still need to do the back section. and then I'll have to sand the whole body to make it more smooth. And then I have to cut out all the moving parts.
    I hope that I don't run into any "surprises" :)

    Also want to add to this suggestion which is a great on at that. Body filler comes in different gradients, Rought/coarse to fine/smooth. The smooth/fine stuff is good to sand down to a really smoth finish.
