    Check it out. I've made a little bit of progress lately - his chest is now glued in place, as is his helmet (although it's slightly crooked, going to have to resculpt). The "boot" assemblies are getting close to being finished.

    Here's a pic of the current robot and vehicle modes. Yes, those are original Twin Twist drills, and yes, they still turn. :D

    The vehicle mode needs a bit of touching up to fill the little gaps, but the robot mode is bang on! At first I was uncertain about using the Wedge head, but this works really well overall!

    I know the vehicle mode is still a bit wonky looking - don't worry. I've got a lot more stuff to graft onto him before he's ready for painting. The arms will get at least some kind of tread casings, and the front of the vehicle mode will be built up into something a bit more complete-looking. Right now he's about... I'd say half built.

    Not a bad idea putting the drills in front of his legs. It actually does help identify him.
