    Guzzle here took alot of reworking to change from a mobile missile battery to a tank. The arms were modified to slide higher to prevent the ape look. The head and chest were courtesy of Shapeways. The chest piece did not align correctly and had to be modified to sit properly . The missile turret was removed and replaced with a diecast tank turret. The turret is electronic and when the top button is pressed it makes tank sounds and the gun barrels light up.

    As a final mod the claw hands where removed and replaced by HG Gundam hands (RIP HG MS1).

    After giving him an all new paint job Guzzle is ready to join the rest of the Wreckers.

    Guzzle looks great, I love the addition of the Gundamn arms, makes him look a little less beast-like.

    I used the same kit myself with this mold and found the same problems. But it does look damn good.

    I usually don't really like the "slap a turret on Hailstorm and call it a tank" look that a lot of these customs end up having, but the handful of mods you did here make it work. Good job.

    Looks nice, but I'd say he looks more like Hardspark than Guzzle :p .

    I just came across your custom Guzzle, and great job! I was just curious though, how did you modify his shoulders? I'd love to know so I could do something similar to my own.

    This is an astonishingly nice rework of an already spiffy mold, bravo!
