    edit: NOW AVAILIBLE CLICK HERE http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/commissioner-listing-feedback/390263-megatrons31s-arms-depo.html FOR DETAILS



    Normally i would just post up in my devy thread, but since this is something that i am going to cast and make availible i wanted to start a thread to see how many others might be interested. it started as something i wasnt going to make for mine, but after holding it up in front of mine I HAVE TO HAVE ONE FOR ME!!!

    this was being built for a member here and i thought i would show him some progress. keep in mind this is a WIP and the center section is actually just laying in place which is why its a little crooked

    [​IMG]

    this is a built from scratch oversized replica of the g1 part (shown in the pics) and has been a true test of my skill as a scratchbuilder, doing the wings was murder!

    now there is still a lot of detail thats needed before i can call this thing fin, but i wanted people to see it. (to help motivate me to get it done so i can cast it)

    i am also considering doing a set of forarms in this same style but im stuck on following thet animation design or doing like i have with this and just copying the toy in a larger scale.

    C&C welcome

    Aside from telling you to get casting on the gun, and also complaining about huge photos...

    ...that looks really good! If it weren't for me deciding to scrap my Devastator project, i'd want one of these. Just out of interest, what connector (if any) does it use?

    This has what has been keeping me from casting, (that and my hotrod weapon which i may scrap now that venksta has come out with his) i just wasnt ready to reveal it yet, at this stage there is no connector, and i dont really now how to go about either, as the way it would connect to mine probably wouldnt work for the usual build team. so it may just be blank on the back side or alteast have a spot for a 5mm peg on it. not sure

    but thanks for the kudo's once this is finished it will allow me to multitask more with other projects (as yours and the hot rod gun are the only other things on my plate after this)

    that is the picture that sold me on (course devy was all put together then but hey beggers cant be choosers)

    little more progress, the center section will be cast by itself and the wings will be split into with some grooves added so it can all be aligned correctly (this way i avoid such a huge mold)

    but mostly done i am just having a hard time figureing out the thruster thing that is at the very top of the center chunk

    still working out the details here but i got all but 3 parts finished

    still needs that jet engine thing at the top of the center section and the missles at thet end of the wings

    [​IMG]

    hopefully i can get all of that nailed out before christmas and start the molds

    for those who are interested it will be cast in 4 molds

    one for each wing, one for the center chunk and each gear on the side of the chest will be cast individually (its the easiest way since there is so much detail) and the less prep work i have to do after casting the less it cost for the you guys)
