    another completed product on my sick day. This little guy's made from G1 laserbeak. The head is from a Real Gear laserbeak. I was able to find a spot to hinge his wings. The weapons are glued together and the pegs shaved to fit. I cut some thin styrene sheets to fill in the sticker gap on the wings. I scribed those and painted them to match the toon a little better. I scanned the him in cassette mode prior to surgery to make the cassette mode decal. The base is from a titanium scourge package modified for a clear rod. the rod just fits in the cassette hole in laserbeak's chest. I used testors model master enamel paints. I plan on working up a little tut on this guy as well.
    thanks for looking fellas. :)

    I'm a wee bit partial to the original Laserbeak head, but that doesn't detract from any of the pure awesomeness on display here. Great work, as usual.

    (now, hurry up with that tutorial. :D  )
