    Figured I'd post some works here. My photo skills kinda suck, you've been warned.
    First up, my version of the Cyb. Downshift/General Lee mod.

    My first Clay did all the Dremeling, and gap filling for me, since I have no skills in those fields, and he does. Stickers were taken from two seperate sets from Hobby Lobby. Cut out the middle of one set, and placed it ontop of the other so they'd be the right color.
    He's not perfect, but I like'im :D 

    And, for those wondering, Clay is also helping me with the Alternator Elita-1 kitbash. So far.. we have a head!

    Working on carving out part of Grimlock's helmet so that it looks more like Elita's headdress. Clay's also testing out making faces for some of his kitbashes, and if they go well, might do a new face for this one.

    And because I can, thought off topic....

    Looks pretty good !

    Just make sure you fill in the holes where Grim's visor would go for the Elita head
    (if your not using the visor anyway)

    Nice work o nthe Lee. I'm curious on your rear end of it though. I had a hell of a time on mine.

    Also, I liked how you kept the windows yellow. I went black on mine for contrast but the yellow/orange actually looks good also.

    It represents hate and oppression, but where's the General's Confederate flag roof?

    Didn't have Clay do any mods to the back actually. It was just repainted.
    Pondered having him cut out the door windows, but it'd look kinda silly...

    Not putting one on there. If anything, I'll throw a big Autobot logo or something. :D 

    Well, I can see where you'd get that idea, but what I was going for was... SILENCE!

    I actually just now noticed that, and I am ashamed now. -_-
    However, I can say that they didn't have any stickers with white outer edges at Hobby Lobby though!
    We'll just say it's the repaint. :)

    Great idea and work on the General mate, you thought about doing something to the colour of the windows so it's not orange on orange?

    Go to target and buy sticker paper. Use photoshop to make your ouw numbers. It works very well. Here's mine for some tips.

    Uhhh... aren't we all forgetting one important detail?

    The General doesn't have side windows!

    So just cut that plastic right out of there! :)

    Cool. I might do something similar to that if I can get ahold of a Cybertron Downshift.

    Ah I can just hear Waylon Jennings now.

    Well it looks like them Duke boys are at it again. Course ol' Boss Hogg is gonna be in for surprise when he finds out the General now turns into a 25 foot tall robot. But will four tons of Mech be enough to save Uncle Jesse's farm? Let's find out...
