Here's my take on Powerglide. It's a kitbash of a Revell 1:72 scale A-10 Warthog model kit. I also used bits from Bionicle and Stikfas (arms & feet), Games Workshop (details), Marvel Megamorphs (Wolverine hands), some laser etched metal detailing pieces, and a cheapo robot from Walmart (gun). The rest is plasticard (lower legs & faceplate). My main goal was to try and make a TF close to it's G1 self (toy and cartoon as inspiration) using a real vehicle and with as little cheating as possible. Not sure if I was entirely successful, but I had a lot of fun working on it.

It's funny to think of the original G1 Minibot as a real world TF. He would dwarf most of the other Autobots, including Prime.

He does not transform but is very articulated. Try to think of him as a Deluxe Action Master of sorts.

I have a lot more kitbashes in the works. I may get around to making one that actually transforms, but for now I'll probably stick to this maquette style approach.

Thanks for taking a look and for any comments you might have.
