    ROTF Forest Battle Buster Prime - BOT PICS ON POST #4!!!!!

    Hello all,

    Long time no post. This guy has been in the making for about 2.5 years...

    As soon as Buster came out I have one expressed shipped. Was in the process of chroming and the clearcoat I was using ate the plastic where the wheel connected to the front fenders and broke off. :( 

    In the process the fender paint was partially stripped as well. The wheel I could fix - matching the factory pinstripping? No.

    So I nearly creid and just left it in the garage for a while. Then I thought what the heck - I'll Battle Damage the guy and replace the front fenders with reg prime parts...

    So - here we are. In the course of all of that my wife got pregnant and we had our son who is now 19months so yeah - a bit buy all the while.

    This is hands down the BEST chroming I have ever done. The rear of the cab, the grill and bumper (Not from the buster as I wanted to keep the factory chromed for myself after it went downhill) and the wheels were stunning before being dirtied up.

    The tanks had to be replaced to as the clearcoat damaged the already fragile blaster. I may attempt to make it permanently transformed but not sure yet.

    He will be hitting ebay SOON and in doing so I will be saying goodbye to Transformer customs as I focus on 1/6 scale figures now.

    Thank you all for checking out my last TF hoorah!

    Bot pics coming in a day or so.

    Awesome job! I love the shattered glass in the windows, so realistic. I have a quick question though, are the smokestacks new parts or did you modify the original ones?
