    Note: Older WIP pics can be found in the 4th post

    Original: Waterwalk - Renegade - www.tfu.info

    Here's a breakdown of parts I'm using:

    * Classics 2-pack Prime legs
    * Energon Cyclonus helicopter (tail portion)
    * Classics Ramjet torso

    Update - 8/7/09
    I'd say I'm about 85% done with painting. Still need to cover whole sections and add details.

    I'm currently working on the wings as well, trying to perfect them.

    Note: I've scrapped the current wing idea. I'll be making new ones out of thick styrene.

    I'm thinking of using a crotch for the head. Yes, a crotch from one of those Megaman Battle Network figures. It has that helmet look I'm trying to duplicate and was originally something I was going to use for Cy-Kill months back.

    For some reason Heavyload RID Build team comes to mind, the goggles I guess. But Heavyload may be a bit too square.

    I do have that head, but I was using it to make Wideload a while back. It's painted and has a faceplate at this point (lol).

    But I need someone that'll function as both a head and cockpit. I don't own a complete Ramjet anymore. I sold a spare I had a little over a month ago and the other went to Cy-Kill.

    Perhaps I should call upon Ptitvite's services? I'm not sure if he's even casting anymore, or if he has any leftover Ramjet casts. Will have to check.

    Is this an easier custom job compared to your previous Gobots?

    I see you revered the legs could you take the legs apart and switch thighs? That way the details will be on the outer thighs.

    The funny thing is that I always say this. And yet, they always end up being more involved. But when you think about it, Cy-Kill was more difficult because it was the first heavy mod I completed. So there was a lot of trial and error there. Here, I have a better idea (still some trial and error), and can apply some of my past experiences to this project.

    And when you think about it, all he really needs is wings, tail, and head attached.

    Loco will probably be the most difficult of them all.
