    If You Guys Remember My Ratchet Wheel Mod That Was My First Custom.....

    Well......Now since Prowl is Crowned my New "Favorite" Transformer he deserves that mod :p 

    Using The Pin Removal Tutorial it was much easier than Ratchet but it had problems, like the back wheels being a sticking out a little:rolleyes2 

    Please Tell Me What You Think.

    QFT! This is one lament I've had with TFs aside from CR/RiD and Alts/BTs. I was so glad to at least see movie Prime with rubber tires, but we need more rubber tires on our TFs! I love what you've done with Prowl here! He looks GREAT!

    Now, add some wheels to Octankor. He is in desperate need of them, especially the faux wheels on his shoulder. Those feel like such knock-off treatments.

    In regards to the wheels being tubbed (no bueno as of mid 90s) you could always add a widebody kit. A lil bit of Sculpy to lengthen the fenders and sideskirts should do it. Also the chrome rims look nice, but police cars tend to have black rims. Have you thought about spraying the hubs with translucent black? If done light enough it will give that black-chrome look that the Interceptor Chargers have. Also if you want a little more "oomph," you can make a custom pushbar out of the spure-trees that model parts come attached to.

    These are the only photos I could find online of Bodyshop with his pushbar. I'd take smaller, more descript pics but my PC is back at HP getting a new motherboard. Viruses suck.
