    Hi All finished this tonight after staring it 31 months ago!
    just a repaint of Scatter shot back into Silverbolt and some shapeways parts to make it all fit.
    Superion is painted with Tamiya acrylics.
    X-10 Gun Metal
    XF-6 Copper
    X-12 Gold Leaf
    X-13 Metallic Blue
    XF-16 Flat aluminium
    Paint with Pearl Red-Orange -Gold Chameleon in X-24 Clear yellow and floor polish

    Shapeways parts

    Unfortunately the combiner ports are stuck in Silverbolt due to too tight a tolerance with the paint. otherwise he'd be perfect!

    This is a really clever idea, and I think the execution for it is about 75% of the way there. The torso doesn't quite match aesthetically. That being said, the paint jobs are very well done and I love the way you made the FOC Fireflight mold combine with a CW torso!

    Thank you, I couldn't agree more! Originally i was using foc starscream with bellpepper's jetfire kit and a crazy devy waist but i just couldnt keep everything aligned and stable without building a superion and just clipping the limb bots in. Then scattershot was released and i saw an easy way out :)  I might go back to the original idea but im really happy with the paint job and happy enough with him for now.

    Nice! Great job! Any chance we can see how you attached the combiner ports to the bots?

    Thanks! to be honest all the hard work was done by the shapeways parts from Chanponman, the link is above but the thread is here.

    Airraid himself has a 5mm port built into him, almost like it was made for this.

    All i then had to do for the hands was make a hole. I used a soldering iron to pierce it then drilled it out to the right size. I used a 3.5mm then a 4mm then a 4.5mm and finally a 4.8mm. IMG_4719.jpg
