    Repainting Onslaught as a Cobra BAT. This is a compainion piece to the Toss'n'Cross I'm working on.

    I plan on making him really worn down from battle, rusty, etc...

    Not much to see yet, but you get the idea. I plan on putting different colored pipes in the cab as a throwback to the 80's BAT.



    10/6/09 - Added pipes to the inside of the cab, pleased with the result so far. Still lots of detail work and whatnot to do.

    great idea. Any idea on what head you're gonna use? Or are you just going with the same head?

    I'm probably just going to retool the head a little to make it look more BATish.

    you gonna give it treads? I remember a discussion thread on this topic, and I can not believe that this is the first time someone has actually sat down to make one. It's such an obvious idea!

    I don't think so. If I could figure out a way to put them on and look cool, I would, but for now I'm just going to leave the wheels.

    I'd think the treads wouldn't really be all that hard to do... Of course, you'd have to "break" the treads so that they can fold away just the same as the wheels do; The treads would simply stick out the back of the legs a bit.
