da_ashman Posted December 14, 2016 Share Posted December 14, 2016 (edited) Hey Guys Finally starting on this project. Building Bumblebee from Transformers 4 (well the beginning anyway, until he turned into the 2016 concept...) Its a pretty bad ass design, mostly stolen from the guy who built the Vengence Camaro. But thats a whole other story... Car was recently sold at Scotsdale Barret & Jackson auctions, seller was Micheal Bay who directed the Transformers movies I love the mix of Matte Black & Glossly Carbon Fibre. Almost 2 yrs ago I quickly snapped up one of C1 Models resin transkits. & finally managed to pick up the plastic kit that it goes with. Little dispointed with the fit, some of the parts seem a little small, but im sure i'll manage to make it work. Contents of the Transkit I love these wheels! There so awesome & massive!!! 3x larger than the stock wheels. Bumblebee is a restomod & had a modern engine & a more modern interior which I'll try to replicate. Ive got some spares from my Camaro SS-x Build (still slowly being worked on), mostly the engine & the seats. Ive got to scratchbuilt the centre consol & modify the dash. & build a Tigercage too. engine is from Revell 08 Camaro SS, not sure if this is 100% accurate but loos good enough to me. & this is where Im at, aside from widening the bonnet ive attached the lower valance. needed to be cut into 3 pieces to fit properly. Still plently of work to do. I do have a question for you guys tho, Im trying to replicate the side undercut (where the chrome trim goes) its been removed on the 1:1, but Revell has molded it inplace. ANy ideas whats best to do? I had thought of just sanding it off & not worrying about the undercut line, but thought I might give it a go. Hopeing to get this one all painted up over the christmas holidays, (great time to get some painting done down at the bottom of the world, sunny & hot) Ash Edited August 15, 2017 by da_ashman Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
