    Well here is the third of my animated seekers. Ramjet, the liar.
    Thanks to the influence of Spurt, I had to make more seekers myself.
    Ramjet now has some ball joints on the wings and biceps, so that his guns can be removeable, or placed either/or when he is in bot or alt. mode. The forearms were filled in with tamiya putty and sculpted. He was painted with tamiya paints airbrushed and given a clear matte finish. The head had to be sculpted so that he had the helmet(the one swindle gave him) like in the show.
    This guy will be listed on ebay tonight.


    Hope you guys like him.

    Added a pic from the show,the episode when swindle gives him the helmet.

    Do you mean like poses, or just general angles?


    And thanks for all the kind words, guys.

    either, or. angles are always good to let people see all sides of a 3D object, but poses also make things more interesting.

    Great work. If/when you do end up taking more pictures, could you take some that show his robot mode with the wings transformed normally?

    Was the head a total scratchbuild, or modification of the existing head? Good job either way!!!

    Oh alright. I don't own the toy so I couldn't really tell if the wings were modded. If they are modded, they are flawless.

    looks like he cut 'em off, flipped 'em over, and glued them back together. plowking did the same thing for his seeker custom.

    Not a total scratch build. I had to cut the face off of sunstorm, and from there alot of tamiya putty, and sanding.



    Redline is right. I cut the wings off, and reversed them on either side. They face the "typical" way now when in harrier jet mode now. They are epoxy glued on, and tamiya putty in the corners and edges sanded down for the smooth plane body.
