I've mentioned this crew once or twice now, and thought I might as well show some of what I've done to them ---- Whenever I go to make some serious modifications to a toy, I tend to make a 'copy' of it out of foam board and poster board so I can chop it up and see different configurations as I work, see where I need hinges, pegs, check clearance and rub issues and so on. To make this set I've bought three armada thundercrackers and one armada starscream, all four of whom were in HORRIBLE condition when I bought them (I tend to buy damaged toys to kitbash as a general rule). I've got the harrier, eagle, phantom and falcon models en-route to my house for re-shelling, I will be getting a new batch of FixIt sometime soon and so on I do have a question: Does anyone know where I can buy some good, tight plastic hinges? I've always made due with my parts bin, but I don't have enough matching toys to do a set of eight for the hinges I need. (Hinge needs to be about 0.75" long) (Thanks to those who gave me advice on hinges, I'm hunting around for the ones mentioned to see if they'll work for this project!) their upper arms are in the process of getting swivel joints, and I'm slowly removing the scramjets from their backs (Two of them were missing them to start with ANYWAY) and debating new hands to give them, or at least wrist swivels. Update: 4/06 The damaged jet model kits finally arrived (My cousin had the correct models and sent them to me for free since they were all opened and damaged) I decided that poor ignored Slingshot would be the first one I worked on. His hips are on ball-joints that can swivel up and down to make his body longer and less boxy. The only salvagable parts from the Harrier kit have been added to him, his nose cone can swing down and I'm now waiting for my latest order of styrene to arrive so I can make the rest of the jet mode (general plan is to have that huge segment of jet that sticks out from his shoulders fold down to form the traditional aerialbot 'backpack'. Ball joints for the wings (so they can swing back and around) will be added soon, as will the hinges for the hollow-cover and the head. Update: 4/07 Alright this time I remembered to type up what I'd DONE (sorry, have the flu and dislocated my hip again so not thinking clearly) I also sorted out the four 'modes' for bot, jet, arm, leg. And now I've a new odd question. Anyone out there know of a junk lot with ROTF 'the Fallen' feet? If I switch out the Aerialbots' current feet with those they'll double as hands in 'arm-mode' and create a wider and more stable foot in 'leg-mode'... If anyone knows of anything of a simular size that can open and close like the Fallen's feet, I'd be much obliged.
