    UPDATE 4/30/2011

    I've been sick for the last month so, I haven't worked on him that much. :) I have done a little painting and detailing. Tell me what you think:



    UPDATE 5/14/2011
    Hello everyone,
    Ive just finished assembling demolishor. I've learned some awsome weathering techniques and have been using them extensivly on this project. I'm loveing how he's turning out; tell me what you think.

    latest updates:
    • All hail megatron in cybertronian
    • Rust, mudbath, and drybrushing weathering
    • cab nearly completed

    thats awesome, that tire looks like it took forever, and i love all the layers in the face
    what are you using to stabalize him? wire? or will it all be cardboard?
    i love the use of a different medium,
    keep it up,
    take a scale comparison pic!!!!

    Sweet! Do you have threads with the other constructicons? Will he be able to transform?

    I'd love to try out something like this. I made cardboard armor for my MP Ultra Magnus a while back...
