    Finally finished another one of my kitbashes. This goes with my E Bruticus. Swindle is the only one of these five that is complete since I painted Blast off the wrong color. Brawl just needs painted (no mods required) and I'm not finished with Vortex or Onslaught yet. But their close.
    So without any further delay, Here are some pics.

    [​IMG][​IMG]
    I origonally just wanted a matching tire for a spare instead of the red energon one. I Was going to have it removed for his various modes but then decided to have it flip up and expose the head. It can come off, but his forehead is short in order to have room for the mechanism.

    Here's his leg mode

    And here's his gun. Its a modified C Hardtop rifle.
    I wanted to have the origonal hand peg removed and placed on the new mounting post, in a T configuration but it would have been a little long in order to get his hand on it. The only reason for switching the handle was so the sites of the gun would be upright. At least they are correct for alt mode.
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    I didn't get very many suggestions on what color to make the gas tank and other unknown, right, detail so this is what I came up with. I left the unknown item yellow, since there was yellow on the origonal Swindle, and added a trimmed down yellow and black repro sticker on top. I placed a decepticon sticker on his hood where the rub sign was located on the origonal. I also added a decepticon spark crystal and highlighted some of the molded details.

    The split in the handle is to simulate his rear gun site.

    Swindle was my favorite! I never got him but I do have Rollbar from RID.

    So does this mean you're going to make the whole combiner?

    Blight looks nothing like swindle, not even the colours.

    He's talking about Vortex from Blight. (nevermind, I'm thinking of Blackout, who's Blight?)I'm using Stormcloud since he was released in larger numbers than Blight. I had Stormcloud painted but it was flaking off and then I decided to change his alt mode, slightly, to give it an even better homage to Vortex.

    I could post pics of the WIP but I think I'm going to wait, and keep the suspense up, a little.

    Did you see the Aerialbots one that Is finished?

    I found the origonal thread that I made for the Aerialbots. http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/showthread.php?t=108635&highlight=aerialbots

    In case anyone missed it. The brown Blastoff is also shown with them. I need to repaint him to olive drab.

    I wanted to add that Blackout was grey and purple, so I would still have to paint some of him. I did change the transforming mechanism on my Stormcloud before Blight was released and didn't feel like doing it again.

    I'm using Kickback as Brawl, not Blight. I used E Strongarm due to his alt mode and only need one tank to match the origonal Bruticus.

    Blight was a bright yellow tank.
