    Hi there,

    Welcome to my very first custom!
    I preformed the following mods to try to improve the look of my beater Bee:
    *Glued the fore-armpanels to the doors
    *Swaped the head with rotf BB
    *modified the feet and added rotf BB´s toes (inspired by an arcee custom from a few weeks back)
    *Glued part if rotf BB´s pelvic section on the, well....pelvic :p 
    *Cut away the skinny looking abdomen and glued on, gues what! Rotf BB´s abdomen :p 

    Altough I painted some details a couple of years back I haven´t painted anything since the mods. I plan on painting, but I wan`t it too look stock, so paint aps will be kept to a minimum.

    I hope you all like it!

    That's some brilliant modding right there. :thumb  Can't believe I never thought of the door panel one before, it's genius! Not to keen on the bulkier torso though, pushes his chest out a bit too far for my liking.

    Actualy the chest sits in its original spot, but I can see what you mean. I think the partial cause of this is the head sitting closer to the body then the original. It is why I am thinking of adding a longer neck in the future.
    Glad you like the doors, tough they are not my own idea.

    is this non-transformable with its current mods?

    It stil transforms. I have too tweak the upperarms and abdomen a little bit to make it fit better.
    The toes have to come of for the rearwheels too touch the ground I am afraid. Still working on that.

    I like this custom alot. Mainly because I never liked giant feet or the arm kibble. Very cool indeed. :thumbs2: 

    One small suggestion. I think the best way to figure out your feet problem is to put BB in car mode and find the best place to attach the feet. Then transform him and see if the same connection point works for his robot mode. I know I'll be working on this one for sure.

    All it needs is some drybrushed silver! BTW... any chance on a quick tutorial on how to do this? After all the BB's Hasbro has given us, I'm still waiting for a good '74 Camaro. Great job!

    Totally, a tutorial would be really sweet!
    I keep holding out hope that we'll get a HA 74BB.
    I know it'll probably never happen - but I keep hoping...

    Looks great!

    The old one is actually a '76 model. Sorry, it's a Camaro-fan thing. :D

    Thank you all for your kind words!
    Everything fots prefect now in altmode, except for the feet.
    I will try to make a tutorial, but no promises!
