    Looks way better. You can always get good smokestacks from old radio antannas. Or just buy one.

    Worked perfectly for Studio Series Prime.

    I like the profile much better that way. I think it's the overhang in the front I don't like. Looking forward to see what you do with the paint.

    Smokestacks are still way too high. They shouldn't be taller than his head.

    Nice job, I wonder how hard it would be to attach the photo grill and Smoke stacks from an MP10V to this figure?

    I know how to gauge angles, thanks. They're still way too tall.

    Cheaper way to go would be to buy one of those non-transformable G1 Optimuses from Walmart. The size should be about right since I used the grill from that for my CW Optimus.

    Could you post a pic of the roof alone so we can see what sections you cut?
