    Not sure I'm totally digging the much wider body, then again, a lot of folks thought my Powerglide was too thin.

    This is such an early stage, it's hard to tell. Maybe adding a little girth to the thighs would help.

    Do you plan on making his waist jointed? That might help break up the large torso too.

    I'm sure you'll pull off a fine looking PG.

    so its going to have to have arms sticking out under the wings? Would be cool if you'd use the engine pods as the arms instead of using them as simple leg kibble like the original had. but that's only if you want a realistic altmode...

    that,s a good idea for the engine/arms but i would need them detacheable.... i,m not sure yet !

    there where some critisims about the upper leg parts being too skinny... so i fix the damn thing... took me quite a while because i had to redesign the all $?"%&% thing and it,s very complex... but it works !!! i,ve manage to make the upper leg 33 % more wide ... more to come !!
