    well today i got started on a prowl i planned to do.
    used rubbing alcohol on cyberfire bee to remove the bolts.. but that decimated the clear red plastic back window.

    so tomorrow i will pickup a regular bee and pillage his blue windows since it fits better for prowl.
    ignore the one piece i forgot to primer white and note the paint isn't final or anything.
    the line between white and black will be fixed up. of course.. but its a wip.. comments?

    oh i also ordered a set of reprolabels for g1 prowl to use on this guy.. cant wait till they arrive!!

    Shouldn't be TOO long,
    I'm waiting for my reprolabels to show up before I go back over the white to see where specifically I want to position things..

    So as soon as they come it should be relatively quick since I love how this guy is turning gout. :)

    Got some repro labels in so I quick touched up the paint, still not done need to remove some errors I caused (slight things of black on the hood from having a bit on my fingers, smooth out the line, etc). But I didn't want to waste too much time since some parts would end up getting covered by the stickers.

    So it's not done, the head's not finished, the limbs and such of botmode still are a work in progress, but man I love how this is turning out!

    this is fantastic. BB's new body shape lends itself SO MUCH to making him Prowl.
