Ok, so why would this be in scratchbuilders forum when about 4/5 ths of this will be slight remolded repaints?
Because the majority of Motormaster will be scratchbuilt.
For those comming into this thread exspecting some kinda pics....
Ha! Ha! . (Opp's I meant, "Sorry, not Yet")
Anyhoo, back to the topic at hand.
If I have learned ANYTHING from making my Scratchbuilt MPPMOP-01 it's that this reall get's easier as we go...
Motormaster should be no promblem as well as making his alt modes.
Now, my plan is to Scratchbuild a entire Trailer that transforms into all 3 alt modes (I know there's 4 when you include ramp mode but I'm not doing that mode because I want the room for mobility of any extra joints it may need for maximum poseability) that consist of Bot, vehical and Body section. I also want to make the Cab seperate from the rest of him to act as a drone or to help with poseability for Menasor so those damn cabs won't get in the way when his knees bend.
Now there is not much to say with what I want to do to Motormaster other then that because I can't do it without showing you and I'm not even to him yet but I already know how all the functions will work and perfectly with stability.
I have begun production on the easiest part of redoing this Bad boy. (If anyone wants to show version one here then please do because I can't show crap untill I got my new computer.) I have figured out the exact Alt's I'm using and for what limbs.
Now if any of the remember my old one you already know what his hands look like. (Clear Unicron hands dyed purple) but instead of their original intent I need to redo one to match the other since I'm now going with the following bots for limbs.
2 Alt Prowls= Wildrider and Breakdown
1 Alt Decepticharge= (If you can't guess this one then that's just sad.)
1 Alt Windcharger=Deadend
Now, if I am able to I'm going to take 2 pics of a minor alteration I did involving the front wheels of Prowl's and the doors then you'll understand my choices for the 2 who become the legs above.
Prowl's mold is perfect for Wildrider as an updated version into an Alt. He's the only one I have compleately done so far. The mod mentioned above allows me to connect the doors to the shoulders and hang off each side of the arms like the original Stunticons. (I learned this mod doing my Updated Alt Sideswipe from that mold.) When I get the chance and the ability to I'll send pics but right now it might look like it'll have to wait untill I get my new comp. (My wife and I were talking about getting a new one for christmas)
Breakdown will again be Alt Prowl's mold in G1 colors.
Alt Deadend from Windcharger will be easy and to use my past Alt Menasor's Alt Dragstrip Arm formation the same way for that color version of that mold and everything will fall into place.
Now, if you want an Idea of how I'm doing th legs from Prowl then here's the transformation.
Pop off the arms at the wheel well.
Pull out the doors on the sides just a little.
Fold hood down into robot mode position.
Pull out back bumper and keep together in one peice.
Fold bumper up to the underside of the car.
Lightly push doors down as far as possible.
There. You got the lower leg. Now do that again with another alt Prowl and you'll have 2.
If you want to know how to make the arms then guess from my old MP Menasor pic.
Ok...I'm done for now.
