    Custom Slingshot

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Started out working on a Silverbolt just to play with it. But now apparently I'm doing the whole team. Trying to go for an IDW meets WFC feel. Ya know kinda bulky, looking like they been around the block a time or two. Different look but still the same. Still more or less a Sea Harrier.
    Tried to come reasonably close to the G1 alt-modes while keeping it in the Energon combiner scale.

    In my head it sorta went down like this:

    While tied up in the Universe Conflict, Optimus Primal became aware that one of the Special Teams would really benefit him in his battles against the spawn of Unicron.
    After searching long and careful deliberation (being Optimus Primal) it was decided that the Airialbots should be brought into the conflict. But not until they received certain upgrades.

    Ok like an Idiot, I didn't realize that I made a typo and put Air Raid when I meant Slingshot. Sorry folks, I tried to edit but it stayed the same

    Neat... are the extended wings a problem for the Gestalt mode?

    Umm, well...The first time I built these two they were. I just jumped right in and did the build then said to myself, "ok, so how do they look in place on Superion".
    OOPS!
    So, I had to take 'em apart and redo it.
    It works good now, But I have to turn them sideways so superion looses some articulation, but I can have them the normal way with the ball jointed ankles I made he just has to spread his legs so far it makes him a little short.
    I used the same trick on my Bruticus so I'm not too worried about it.
    Thanks for asking, More picks will come once Silverbolt and Air Raid get painted.
