    I need to take more pics.

    Made out of some small Armada figures (I guess) I found in the $3 bin from a local collectible shop.
    EDIT: body/arms from cybertron Brakedown, legs/head from Cybertron Hardtop. Thanx Bloodraged189!

    Acrylic for most of the body (as you can tell by the chipping in his hands) with a gloss coat, testors for the head.

    Touchups on the way. More photos too.

    Been busy scriptwritin' for a theater company. Yay!

    Oh, thanks buddy! The head and feet are from one robot, the body from another. I think. I couldn't tell you which is which.

    It looks good in robot mode. Alt mode, I'm not quite sure what it's supposed to be.

    Yeah, the car mode is...barely a car. I'm thinking of ditching the back wheels completely and just having him NOT transform. Oh wait, I never turned his torso around and then pushed his arms back. I'll give it another transformation when I get home. :eek: 

    Thanks for the love.

    like others have said,bot mode is almost bang on.for alt mode though,could you possibly build it up some how?maybe styrene or something?the general shape is there for a passable 4x4,you just need to tweek it ever so much more:thumbs2: .

    Thanks for the positive feedback (and suggestions).

    I'm gonna leave him in robot mode for a while as transforming him just sends paint chips flyin'. I'llcome back to car mode when i get a better idea of what to do.

    Thnx again!
