    Some of you have seen my 3D Soundwave that I'm making. Well, I thought that he needed his lil' condor buddy to go with him, so I decided to build my namesake.

    This is a very early WIP shot (started only a few minutes before posting this), but I'm still curious as to what you all think of it so far. In case anybody's wondering, no he can't transform. I designed him just to look cool in bird mode posed next to my 3D Soundwave. :D

    Small update: Added vents to his "engine".

    I'll be doing the guns next, then adding some detail to the wing. The head will come last.

    EDIT: Guns are done.

    Yeah, I'm a big fan of useless detail. :D

    'Nother update: I started adding some details to the wing joints. Hydraulic pistons are some of my favourite parts to model. :D 

    I also started filleting some of the edges so they don't look so sharp. Unfortunately, filleting the whole thing is gonna be a real pain. What did I get myself into? :banghead: 

    Anyhoo, that's the last of the updates for now. Keep checking back to see how the model progresses. :D

    Update alert!

    After much frustration, modifying, rebuilding, and tedious filleting, I finished the wings and main body. The body frustrated me to no end, as the damned thing just wouldn't fillet right. So I had to go in and modify the whole thing. No biggie though, at least that part's done. The gun/engine is 95% done. Just need to solve a wee problem with the fin and thruster.

    Anydangway, here's my progress so far. C&C welcome and appreciated.

    I think the barrels are too skinny, but that's a matter of personal opinion. Otherwise, wow. No, really, wow.

    The model is FINALLY done! Woohoo! :D 

    This is my first 100% finished TF model (Soundwave still has a ways to go), and one of my best works. His head's all done, and there's a few extra details put in.

    Final renders coming soon!

    Pretty good Laserbeak model, looking forward to seeing your Soundwave model ejecting him from his chest. :thumb
