    Hello,

    So, I have an Airfix 1/32 Mini Cooper:

    MINI Cooper S (A03412) Model Kit and Accessories by Airfix

    And I would absolutely love to have a crack at using this to create a deluxe-size All Hail Megatron Cliffjumper:

    (I'm thinking of using Alternity Cliffjumper's head, taking a cast of it.)

    I'm not so sure I could manage a scratch-build, though (although I might give it a go if there's no other way). I'm therefore wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a base Transformer that could be used for a reshell? Other than the Binaltech Hot Rod (which is too big, being 1/24), I can't think, off-hand, of any other Transformer toys that have the front fenders as the shoulders and the hood on the chest and so on, but anything that might provide a starting point would be useful.

    Many thanks for any suggestions!

    I think PRID Deluxe Knockout would work great with a few custom hinges added to the reshell.

    Thanks! That looks like a great fit. A shame Knock Out doesn't seem to have made it over here yet (I'm in the UK), but I'll keep an eye out and see if I can get him at a reasonable price on eBay, as his transformation scheme seems perfect. Thanks again for the suggestion!
