    I recently moved so my custom projects were put on hold but I did complete 90% of the Turbomasters so I’ll go ahead and post phase 1. I have some touch ups, weapons, and stickers to apply. I also have to finish the combiner details at some point for phase 2. And I do have original turbomaster weapons for each one of them(ebay!)..but I have to retrofit 5mm pegs to them.

    These were inspired by work previously done by a few others. Sorry about the lighting..my office is kinda dark atm!

    Always good to see the Turbomasters getting some love. They all look great so far. Seeing G1 Thunderclash's trailer with you custom is AWESOME! No Thunderclash is complete without his trailer! and I love the mod you did to Scorch's chest. Makes it that much better and accurate. Keep it up!

    Nice!
    I've had these guys on my radar for a while. I even started gathering reference pics.
    But never put any thought into what molds to use.

    One tip I’ll give where to apply the colors to give your paint job a cleaner look is I’d imagine the bots are just wearing a suit with vehicle parts. I stuck the closest I could to the character drawings/toys but thinking of it in that context helped me translate it easier to these molds. You can kind of see that same design in the artist renditions of the toys..robots in suits.

    is the plastic (teal) behind the headlights easy to remove ?

    You can get a clear color acrylic. You can also use the same to paint over solid colors to create candy effects.
