    Hybrid Autotrooper

    Got myself a DOTM Rescue Ratchet for cheap. And told myslef why not. Instead of a car alt mode, he is now a hummer.

    Mods done:-
    - Cut up plastics on the knee and thighs, making him less bow legged.
    - Replaced hands with junker gundam hands
    - Head is from GM Cannon modified to have a neck swivel. I chose a GM because of its generic look, fitting Autotrooper.

    I just finished priming him and will be painting him up tomorrow.

    Note: The face is masked as I am covering the clear plastic.

    EDIT: 4/11/2012

    He is done.

    Awesome start, man! The hand swap alone makes a world of difference.

    This is really cool. Great idea this is the repaints and redecos that we should be getting with these molds.

    Yeah, and there's nothing like a clean primer look to help bring out a mold's brilliance, eh?


    ... and of course, I too will be awaiting the progress. :)

    Thanks all for the comments! :thumb 

    He is done. I coated it with a few layers of pearl gloss. Probably the pics are not capturing it right.

    dude that's nice! I love the pearl coat, I can imagine just what it's like because I used it on my prime thunderwing - I love the minimal paint apps, which I know some people will say you should break up some of the grey, but it looks really really clean!

    Haha! This is just for personal collection, not going anywhere. :D 

    Thanks. :) 

    I am aiming for a utilitarian look so the muted colors works well here.

    Thanks, glad you liked it. :D 

    Unfortunately not at the moment, that would mean I have to get a few more GM heads :lol 

    As for the paint, it is holding up nicely.

    I need more money :lol  :lol

    I'd like to see some slightly brighter photos. This REALLY looks nice. You're really on a nice roll with your work, bud.

    Autorooper is a fav of mine :)
