Alternators Gone Wild

Well, Robotcon 2007 is finally over. The 3rd TransMy gathering was a bash and I manage to win myself an Optimash and a T-shirt. heh. Anyhoo, its been a while since I've updated RK Designs with some of my latest works.

Let's start with the ones done before the hectic life of Robotcon. As the title says, it's all about the Transformers toyline called the Alternators (US) or Binaltechs (Japan). I was given the monumental task of repainting one alternator and do a kitbash on a binaltech.

Who were those unlucky bots to go to my repaint workshop? An alternator Swindle and a binaltech Grimlock with Silverstreak head.

First up would be Swindle. His original color was yellowish brown. His color was based on his original G1 color. So what was my task? My customer wanted it to be made gold. Swindle was suppose to be a testbed for my next project which is going to be with the same customer who is now a good friend of mine. He wanted everything on Swindle pimped to bling bling status.

The verdict?

I present to you all, Bling Bling Swindle.

Now, the next project was a kitbash. I was given a Binaltech Grimlock body and a Silverstreak head. The color scheme would be something like G1 HotRod or G1 Rodimus. First thing that I had to do was, fix the head. Silverstreak's head didn't properly fit and easily came off. So, opened the head and fit in a small part for ball joints. Then I increased the size of the ball joint to make the fitting nice and tight. Once that was done, paint stripping was done and repainted it nicely.

And I present to you Solarstreak.
