    Just a few things I have been working on lately. I have soooooo many ideas going through my head that I can't concentrate on one bash at a time.

    I have still been working on the Zartan swamp skier transformer. It is coming along nicely accepet for the face. I used the lugnutz transformer for this and want to sculpt a more movie like face for him.

    The Arcee/R.A.M. is in the final touch up stages

    Next we come to the WIP pics I just posted.

    Sideswipes head. It is the first time I have ever sculpted so this is not a finished product. But it does at least fit into the sunstreaker mold. I used sculpy to make a mold of the origional head. then I made a copy. then I added more sculpy and refined the shape.

    My first scratch build. I am useing a Neo shifter for the main part of the bot and some panels are being used from an old "Corps" humvee. It is going to be my version of a movie hound. It is to scale for the 25th aniversery Joes and yes. the alt mode is the VAMP. Now I just need a clutch figure to go with him.

    BTW/ anyone have any idea how to aleaviate the pain of carpel tunnel while doing modding besides my beer idea?

    Later Radacons!!!!!

    That head sculpt looks great for being your first one. I might even want a copy for my Sideswipe if it looks good painted and if you are selling them :)

    that scratchbuild has potential. I recommend you cut up the grill and hood area to split up more so that they will fit aesthetically with the limbs.

    Parts of the hood will actually be attached to the arms. I am having a bit of a problem though. I went to my local hobby store to find some styrene but the only thing I found was foam board. would an R/C car chop be more likely to have it?

    Try an arts and craft store as well. Or if you have a model train/railroad type hobby shop(maybe the r/c car shop like you said). The guys who build railroad dioramas use lots of styrene stuff. Worst case scenario, try online. I use Plastruct brand, mainly because of availability. I think another brand is called Evergreen.:thumb
