    Sure here’s a bit more but i want to change the attachment points a little bit so it’s not final

    Edit: I did not change this so it is final

    This thing is taking so long to paint, ugh

    Anyway I have these from the inner workings, the triangle rotates and I used longer screws for the roof so it can be higher for car mode

    If there’s something else that needs explaining ask me because I can’t think of anything right now.

    Also more progress on modern.
    I’m still trying to figure out the lower bumper but if I do it will be a very minor improvement unfortunately, I did do something with the wheel though

    And does anyone know what scale mpm 3’s car mode is, I sadly damaged and painted over the “camard” writing so I’m hoping I can find a sticker or something to replace it

    Can't say the scale for certain but could you maybe measure the existing text on your other copies and find a scan online of the clean text and size accordingly from there?

    So did you miss me?:lol 
    Yeah I know it took ridiculously long and honestly I don’t know why.(well aside from making the entire thing a lighter shade of yellow)
    But anyway I finished painting:D , can’t transform him currently because the chrome will fade if I touch it too much, I’m also painting my barricade so I’ll show them together when he’s done.
    I believe that’s the tlk gun so I’m going to look at changing it into the 07 gun at some point but not right now.

    (It’s a little difficult to get clear pics in the dark:( , also my phone kinda freaks out when it sees yellow but the shade shown in the unmasked head pic represents it best)

    The doors? The hinge/slider thing rotates under the doors instead of around the side

    Nooooo! Maybe I’d give it a go if it came from a better movie:confused2

    Well I think you should start by getting some car parts ready by either finding a tlk bee figure that’s the roughly the same size or just printing some.
    He’s going to need a below the elbow swivel to get the forearm armour in the right place, maybe you could replace the elbow itself with a ball joint.
    IMG_5914.jpeg
    This black part should be attached to a hinge and yellow on one side so it can rotate downwards and make the hip armour look longer.

    If you can reengineer the doors you need to put the door hinges higher so you can separate the bottom half from the top, maybe that bottom half could become his lower door wings but they might not be accurate.
    And if don’t mind waiting you could take some engineering from my dotm bee, I should be starting soon.

    Also is he osko? Looks like it to me but if not I recommend the shockwave lab sl-155, it’s the gun I got and is more accurate to tlk

    Finished alt mode.
    No car weathering yet and I still don’t know if I’ll add it, curious what you all think about that.
    Didn’t do the rims because It would be small, precise and annoying.
    I did however chrome the mirror.

    That one is the same size as the original so the gun will fit

    You f***ing legend.

    You just turned my favorite bumblebee design into a masterpiece. That is awesome.

    Good work!

    I cant get iver how good he looks. How did you get the collar to look more broken up than the original. The whole hood collar thing was one of my least fav parts

    I can’t really help with that design tbh

    I’m not sure actually, maybe it’s the chest being a little higher at the sides and reaching further over the top combined with the wings also being higher

    Excuse my messy desk but work on the dimly lit side of the moon has begun

    Took the collar from the 07 to see if it would fit the different proportions, looks good to me :D
