    In an attempt to fill out the Autobot ranks some more (Like they don't already out number my Universe cons...)

    I have been working on Red Alert, Jazz, and Now Tracks (Who is somewhat nearly finished with paint and for the longest I couldn't figure out what head I would use untill I looked at an extra Streaker head and removed the head fins.

    I still wanna add some detail to the crest on Tracks head and some shaping do a few more paint apps and clearcote him but here's what's done so far since I started him.

    I'm also attempting to build and attach his wings so they work in both molds, as of right now they may be parts forming wings connecting to the doors in Alt mold (Via the rotating peg that holds the doors onto the arms) and can connect to the shoulders in bot mold.

    Are you going to make his alt form look more like a Corvette?

    looks good so far, are you changing it so it doesn't look exactly like a Lambo?

    Looks great so far. Any plans to get rid of the spoiler so it looks more corvette-ish?

    Nope hand painted :D 

    I don't know how much I could make it to look like a corvette I didn't really plan to do extensive mods to the vehichle mode, Plus I lack the skills like you, Jin and most of the other more experienced bashers to completely change things like reshelling and cutting the propper panel lines for transforming and still make it look good. I learned some things but originally I planed this just as a simple repaint and bash.


    I was thinking about giving him a Strange Flamboyant grin idk yet :wink: 

    As I mentioned in the reply to satomiblood I'm not too skilled in extensive reshells of deluxe sized figures, so I think there might be some minor mods to the vehicle mold but not many.

    Well looking back at G-1 tracks he did have a air drafting tip on the trunk, I might try to do something simular or not at all not sure but the stock wing will be removed.

    :ev:

    I respectfully disagree. You are a very talented artist and I believe you have the skills necessary to take on such a venture. I also think should you take it on, you'd surprise yourself.
