    Here's something I've been working on forever. Started it last year sometime. I don't really remember when, exactly. But I just started working on it again this week. It's my own design of my friend's character. His name is Furystrike. I can't really think of anything else to say, so if you have any questions about it, feel free to ask.

    Pics of the Headmaster component (I've added swivel guns to his shoulders since I took these pics, which you'll see in the later pics of the big bot mode. I've also made it so its fists flip into the forearms)

    And the body. I haven't connected the chest to the mid-section or the mid-section to the hips yet. I won't until it's almost done, that way I can paint it easier. Unlike other Headmasters, this one DOES have neck articulation, so he can turn his head 360 degrees.

    First 2 pics demonstrate the cover for the power guage (never mind my pudgy fingers!)

    It'll turn into a half-track tank. Here's an early design pic I did to give you an idea.

    That looks amazing. The one thing that I still can't understand (because everyone I ask never fully answers my questions), how did you do the chest? The only styrene I can find are flat sheets. That looks like a block you shaved down. And, how did you engrave the deep (perfectly symmetrical) trenches in the chest, and the lighter lining in the shoulder pads? Do you have a laser- engraver? There's no way a surgeon could do something that perfect with a dremel... I'm trying to do my first KB/semi-scratchbuild, but everyone I ask for advice just gives me short, half-@$$ed answers, that tell me nothing on how to do what I want to be able to do. I don't want my first attempt to turn out like sh** - I want it to look like yours!!!
