    Based on the Bumblebee 74 Camaro
    Just finished painting and coating, doing some final touchups and adding decals (oooh, flames…)
    Better pictures of the final version coming soon…

    Updated!

    decided to go with BruticusMaximus idea and give him a new head similar to the G1 look,
    also, influenced by the updated TFTM car graphics (black lines on Bumblebee, flames on Optimus…)
    Tracks received yellow "hotrod style" flames, but as you can see, the front hood is still empty,
    I got the reprolabels stickers but now they don't fit in with the general design
    guess I'll have to continue the yellow flames also on the hood

    Great Idea!
    Seems you are the first one with that idea.

    However, if I were you, I would consider giving him a new head instead of recolouring the old one.

    Somehow it reminds me of "Howard the Duck"... :wink:

    AWSOME IDEA! maybe do the windows a different color they kind of blend into the body color a bit.

    yeah, you could paint them with transparent black paint, the original had tinted windows anyway, at least on the rear *shrugs*

    easy.. I'm just another Radicon :)  I just happen to get to run the place with the help of PK and SQ7. I'm also hardly the guy with the craziest modding skillz.

    Looking good. Do you plan in doing anything with the wheel rims? I suggest painting them a brighter color to make them stand out more. I also agree on the comment regarding the windows. Have you done the leg mod as well?

    Thanks anovasinn, sadly I took the pictures with my lousy cell phone camera
    so you can't notice the difference between the windows and the body color

    Don't think so, I've already used too much paint on the poor guy
    up to the point the transformation is getting difficult, and I really want to get to the bot mode…

    leg mod???

    Thanks autobotx23, I'm using one of those cheap KO heads very similar to the G1 head
