    Hey Radicons! I have FINALLY finished my very first Custom. The main reason I chose Ravage were the many different mods I came across while searching through the custom section. I decided it would be neat to take all of the different mods and add them to one figure, since it would give me some practice using different techniques, and I would end up with the Ravage i saw in the movie... or as close as i could get. He has the Neck mod (thank you maxwinamp), and the tail mod (thank you Matt Brooks). I’ve also slightly modded the back legs in order to bend them a bit more than the original mold would let you. I modded the head with styrene and added an LED.
    SO, as you can plainly see, this isn’t an original custom as much as it is a combination of other Radicons clever ideas rolled into one. Let me know what you think and what I can do to improve the techniques I’ve used.

    Thanks for all your help, and for Looking!

    My earlier post was not shown... darn loss of internet!!!

    I wanted to say this looks good and I can see how much time you spent on all the mods. That is by far my favorite head mod I have seen!!!!

    I would suggest to work on your drybrushing a little more and paint the teeth silver!!! That would really set this guy up on a higher league!!

    Thanks a lot Encline. there actually isn't any drybrushing involved in this project. i used "humbrol Metal coat" as the main color and then buffed it out with my dremel. then i used the cutter to chip and scuff it. there are some photos that i used a heavy sharpen effect in photoshop to remove the blur from not using a tripod. those seriously look heavily drybrushed but are not. then other pictures were taken with a tri-pod that turned out much better.

    I totally agree with the painting the teeth. i didn't realize how rusty i made them until i looked at the pictures (that was taken with a flash while others were not). looks like he just finished off an elephant.
