    Hi everyone, Just wanted to post some progress pictures of my latest idea.

    I had been wanting to do a cool Brawn update for awhile but I didnt really find anything I liked as a base until I saw the RID Ratchet photos. I wanted to make it a really cool alt mode.

    I started with the alt mode first and took off all the ambulance lights and front hood vent. Then started a bunch of details like widening the fenders and adding running boards. Next was trying to figure out a way to fill that gap in the back of the alt mode. It took alot of trial an error but I think i came up with a solution.

    Im going to add a false roof rack kind of like the Legends version of Brawn and then its on to the bot mode. I plan on using the usual Cyclonus head for it. I dont have any bot mode pics because I havent even touched it yet. I want the Alt mode to really be different than the base and really define Brawn.

    tell me what you think, or have suggestions
    thanks!

    Cool idea, best part is that since it is a different character you can completely change the torso

    Ah, so that's what you're using the Perceptor wheels for.

    Thanks for the comments everyone, Yes the idea is to totally redo the torso thighs and the upper shin area and square them off and take out the rounded parts. its going to be a challenge.

    I am always on the lookout for some new base to use as Brawn, and have even looked here- but wrote it off.

    You definitely have me giving it second thoughts tho.

    Heh. You're definitely doing more work on this than I would bother to do... but it's true, those rounded limbs just don't quite feel right.
