    I haven't posted here in a bit as I didn't really have anything new to post. It was mostly just making a ton of the stuff you've already seen.
    Well here is my attempt to make this girl work.

    More pics to come as I get her all spiffed up but for now... enjoy!

    Infinitely better than it was. Curious to see how those arms fit into alt mode. Looks great.

    The hands are removed during transformation but the double jointed arms allow the arm panels to line up properly.

    Added a picture of the current vehicle mode. Hands removed, arms folded inside.

    Looking great so far - is there no way to move the nosecone to her back & mount the cockpit halves onto her shoulder armor?

    That would put a LOT on her shoulders, almost blocking out the spider legs.

    I like the way you incorporate the panels into her arms. Genius!

    Added new pics of further mods. Ditched the helicopter and went straight up spider on it.

    You need a gold medal. You took one of the worst transformer figures in fifteen years and found some way to make it look good.

    You should like, plug the robot hands into the side of the alt mode. I think it'd be hilarious :lol

    Thanks guys :) 

    The alt mode is dead now. All that's left is the robot and the half spider mode.

    How are the spider legs done? Can you show a pic of the back of the figure? I'm curious as to how you got this to work. If more work is applied could the helicopter mode be retained and have it be a triple changer?

    The helicopter mode creates a giant backpack and I wanted to eliminate that altogether so no third mode. I'll have back pics later as I'm in bed now but I pretty much added three post holes to her back. One from the top of the copter and two from... well, I'll let you figure it out when I post it :) 

    So not the spider legs support the half mode and then you pop those off and plug one set into the center hole for the proper robot mode which is now steady and balanced without all that back pack.

    Looks great! Good thing a lot of people don't want Airachnid - I want two to do this myself.

    That is fantastic work! I wish you would have posted this before I modified mine. I used PRiD Arcee's arms and ditched the alt mode all together to remove her backpack.

    Here is a shot on mine, still in need of paint on the rotors.

    You have done an amazing job! Who's arms did you use? I have another MoSC Airachnid I might hack up!
