    Hi all. This is my first thread. I recently got into kitbashing and custom painting. My first project involves a Diaclone repaint of the Magnus Titanium figure. The factory paint was boring and rather than the familiar G1 repaint, I opted to go with the Diaclone colors.

    The painting is going pretty well. I'll post pics soon, but I have issues with the head sculpt. I don't like the antenna. They're short and I want to give them the smoke stack feel from the cartoon and classic toy design. Any suggestions as to how to make them this way?

    Also, I don't like the missile launchers. I felt like adding a functional missile launcher and wanted to use Universe Swerve's. I'd essentially cut the tips off so they'd resemble Magnus missiles.

    Swerve's missiles I plan on using: http://www.transformerland.com/store/reference_images/23622-r.jpg

    Again, your thoughts are welcome.

    i think the swerve missile launchers in themselves would be too big. i look forward to seeing some pics as i was playing about with this idea

    I may consider that. Thanks.

    They're pretty big, but I think they could work with the figure in terms of scaling. We'll see.

    I like where this is headed. The only thing he would need to be "complete" is a little red super buggy. Maybe that Gobots beach buggy would work?
