Nice work on TC there, I think Skywarp's now the one that looks least good... I hate that bright pinkish colour they used for his secondary colour.
Question: How are you (if at all) getting round getting round the scraping issue from the little nubs on the wings and tail? Personally I'm filing off mine, but I'm curious as to how others are doing it.

Hot Spot? He would've made a good G1 Onslaught also but I trust you're gonna make something very nice out of mudflap

Onslaught's a good thought as well. Either way works.

The nubs on the inside of the wings I've left alone. They don't seem to bother the paint all that much. The ones on the tail/rudder/fins tend to do some damage, so I just sanded those all the way down. I have to align them by hand, but since I tend to lean them back to make better 'heels' in bot mode, that's not such a big deal.

Anyways, Mudflap has the right color for Hotspot already. Need a mouthplate and a way to make him combine with his fellow teamates and that's it.

I'm currently working on making Classics Rodimus more G1-y. I'll post pics soon. Lots of minor stuff like paint apps but they help all that they can... You know?

These mods are just simply beautiful, right now im trying to figure out HOW to manipulate the seekers so i can make them into the aerial bots, its a challenge but yeah. Sorry for bringing back to life a dead thread but i couldnt let this thread die. I was wondering why people are deleting their pictures of photo bucket and not letting others see them.

I think I mentioned this in the Toy forum but I figured I'd drop it here too...

Recently got U2 Springer, and hated him... decided to stick with E Bulkhead as my Springer stand-in with a small modification. I switched the rotors assemblies on the two figures (they just pop out) Bulkhead's fits into Springers with no problem but Springers needed a little sanding to fit into Bulkheads (weird).
After doing that I also cut away a small section of the base on two of the Springer blades (as they just pop out of the assembly) so that they fit into Bulkhead hand holes... making twin swords

Pics:
Both copters with their new baldes
Close up of Bulkhead in Alt
May be hard to see, but the blades are a bit long and sometimes hit the rear prop
Bulkhead with his new swords
Altered blade next to unaltered
(yes I'm going to sand away the burrs)
I probably took off a little more than I needed to, so if you're think about doing something similar I'd recommend not being drunk and actually know what you're doing.

Almost forgot about this one.. I had posted a thread about it but it was lost in the board crash last year..

Classics Jetfire is an awesome figure in my book.. but having him on the shelf in his regular robot mode without the backpack, guns, launchers and helmet left alot of spare parts..

so.. with that in mind.. may I present... again..

Jetfires Gun Drone!

I know alot of people werent too happy about Universe Ironhides blue face and windows,.. I was one of those people..

So, I gave them a lick of paint using Games Workshops Citadel Colours Polished Blue.

Also painted the face and thighs with Chainmail Silver and the shoulders in Chaos Black.

The windows could use a second coat just to neaten them up abit, but for now Im happy with it :)

I always thought the guy that turned into a firetruck should have a fireman's axe, long before they actually did it for Animated. But there was never one small enough to fit the original Inferno's hand or wrist socket.

With the new Classics version, I was finally able to make this work.
The axe was an extra weapon for the Xevoz Frankenpunker (dammit hasbro, why'd you have to cancel THAT good thing you had going) figure. I just trimmed and sanded down the end of the handle to fit Inferno's hand.

Picture didn't want to post right, so I just included the URL. Hoi.

Hmm, guess I never got around to posting this here...

copypasta:

Make U2.0 Treadbolt worth keeping

I removed a few pieces from the backpack assembly so that the two boosters can slip out Pic
And now He has two BFG's Pic
(figured it made as much sense as City Commander having that ridiculous gun)
Also his two little guns can now become shoulder cannons Pic
And now he has the ability to shot around corners and over walls Pic
:lol:
Problem is that even though the boosters slip back into the backpack, they're incredibly loose. I plan on fixing that by putting magnets in each booster and in the backpack... just need to find some that are a)small enough b)strong enough c) easy to obtain d)bloody cheap


Since I wrote that, uhm elswhere, I've found some cheap rare earth magnets.
Basicly all you have to di is leave the screws in the peices that slip into the backpack and glue some small rare earth magnets to the little pillars inside the backpack (the ones where the screws that hold the backpack together come thru)
The result is that the boosters/guns are pretty solidly attached to the backpack when you want them to be but can easily be pulled out when you want to use them as handheld guns.

Hi, I got classics Ironhide, but unfortunately he's got a skyblue face! I'd like to repaint it to grey/silver/something more in line with the G1 Ironhide. I've never done anything to alter my Transformers before (excepting accidental damage), and am just wondering what type of paint would be recommendable? I'm looking for brands more than colouring I suppose. Hope I'm not bringing up an old topic, searched the thread for ironhide and it turned up nothing
