    Kay, not a bot, but there really wasn’t anywhere else to post this. My Dad and I built a '53 Chevy lil rat rod, and i wanted to make him something for Christmas and while in Walmart i came across a '50 Chevy model kit. So i bought it, customized the hell out of it (the suspension as a pain in the ass), sanded the hell out of it (really appreciate just how great Bandai does with quaility compared to sets like these), and painted it.

    ...somehow I read your handle with the description and thought the truck was supposed to BE Grimlock...and, y'know, it actually kinda fits better than his Alternators Mustang alt-mode when you think about it...

    Looking really good. Funnily enough I was thinking it'd be perfect for an older Kup alt mode XD

    Wonderful job, and definitely something special.

    Now you should make a base for it to resemble the field the real one is parked in.

    Who gives a crap it ain't a bot. That's fricken fantastic

    Now, all you have to do is buy another model kit, buy a cheap transformers figure, combine them, the superglue the new figure into a statue with a base!

    Seriously though, this is great

    That's awesome!

    My dad and I tried to get his 54 Chevy truck going again, but we weren't successful. Glad you and your dad was successful and I'm sure he'll love the model!
