    As the title says this Is Vector's Last custom. BinalTech Ultra Magnus was completed up to the reassembly stage and I have been putting it back together little by little.....kind of a last gift to him. And I know that he would have wanted it shared with his family here at TFW2005. He did it from Kiss Convoy plus a conglomeration of other things he gatherd up to add to it. Things like new break calipers and rotors, a new spoiler, guages for the instument cluster. And he made numerious mods so as to fix some of the moulds short-comings. Well here you all go.....hope you like.

    I never though it was possible to improve on Vector's Magnus, but that right there has done it.
    A thing of beauty !
    My hats off to you for being able to finish it for him.
    Thank you for sharing his final custom.

    Hmm...there are several areas where you can still see the original red. He did great lines, though, some of the best this board has seen! The grill detail is superb too. Where did he get the Ram decals from?

    Thanks for sharing this with us, lita 1.

    That is a true work of art. Even though I didn't know him or you, my deepest condolences. You both did an amazing job with this one.

    The areas that were left red were done so intentionaly, for fit issues ! The decals were sized down from pics. of the real thing and printed out on the comp.

    Awesome, I love that the white is a good balance between Flat and a True gloss. A fitting final bash.

    You will be missed Vector. Thanks for the inspiration.

    That looks great! And you did a very good job of putting back together. I sometimes have trouble remembering how parts come together (and I took it apart). I'm sure it's loads more difficult to put something together without the help of taking it apart before hand.

    You guys both made a fantastic custom. He spoke of how he wanted to complete this often; I'm glad it got finished!

    You did a great job putting everything back together! He'd be thrilled to see this. THRILLED.

    lita_1, perhaps you should make more TF customs :D :D :D

    Lita 1, that is an amazing piece of art there. Vector's work was (and will always be) amazing! You did an excellent job putting him together.

    Anyone else think this needs to be galleried, like; now?

    What more can I say that hasn't already been said? The man did great work (as witnessed by his "last project" here) and I have to applaud lita for taking the time to finish off something that was probably very hard to do under the circumstances. lita, you did a great job in putting it back together AND for having the heart to do what most of us couldn't if we were in your shoes (Vector would be proud).

    It was very hard to bring myself to finish it. But I knew that it was the one he wanted so much. I did a repaint of red alert out of prime a long time ago. I had to take it apart so i could put it back togethre so I could put this together. It took HOURS. But I did it. I plan on keeping the tradition going and doing more repaints myself. Kevin had a file in out computer of some of the things he wanted. He never had time because of his commisions. I am and will always be proud of his work. I complained alot about the time it took him. I just wish he were still here to hear me. The nagging wife the roll i took so seriously. I wish I still had him next to me. It had been hard but in time it will hurt less I hope. Thank you to all so much for your support. I do have a ton more pics of this Magnus.
