    Hey Gang!

    Say hello to my little friend! Universe Legends Cyclonus! :ev: 

    This little bugger was a blast to make, and now that the paint is about 75% I can't stop playin' with 'im. I still need to add some 'Con logos and touch up the paint, but he's pretty much finished.

    This was a melding of Legends Jetfire and Legends Starscream kitbashed together. Couple ball joints, some styrene fabrication and sculpted cockpit and BAM! Cyclonus is born! This was an unexpected 'bash, basically made from leftovers of my Bruticus Minimus project (glad I didn't throw this stuff out:cool: )!

    Of course he benefits from my added articulation, let's see what he can do!

    1. ball jointed neck
    2. waist rotates 360 degrees
    3. ball jointed knees
    4. feet pivot (for transformation, but I added a little extra "toe-up" ability)
    5. ball jointed shoulders
    6. double ball jointed elbows (painted the balls red to look like the thrusters in flight)

    So there he is, great poseability and really fun to TF. The TF sequence is a little more involved than you might think. I think I'm gonna do a video review so folks can see the TF sequence, plus I wanted to contribute to the Radicon's "unofficial" youtube channel NP started! Enjoy!!---BH

    I would destroy my fingers before I accomplished something like this. How you make these small wonders (Ive read your tutorial but still I dont think I could do it) amazes me. Keep them coming, they look fantastic!

    Some cut/sanded areas could have used a little cleaning before painting. But DANG that thing is awesome.

    I realy like what you've done with the legends, would it be out of place to ask you to turn your attention to some cassettes?

    I would have terrible eyes and major arthritis if I attempted to work on the legends line. Great job Hank! Also, with a repaint, Cyclonus reminds me of the Klingon Bird of Prey.

    Great work now he's finally got some paint on him. I can't imagine how hard it would be to paint at that size scale. I mean I went from Alts to Deluxes, so Legends are a bit daunting at the moment for me.

    Hey gang! Thanks for the C&C guys! I still need to do some detailing and touching up, this first coat of paint was so I could see all the rub areas! I don't really like brush painting the base coats, but my 'ol airbrush compressor is apparently not the oil-less piston type! It was seized up when I tried to crank it up! Looks like I need to go shopping! Besides, I completely forgot I wanted to make the folding part of the wings silver! :dunce 


    All Testors Modelmaster Acryls. I primed with Napoleonic Violet, Then used Pearl Grape for the main color. The rest is Steel and Steel with Clear Red over it.

    Yeah, also an X-wing with only two wings! But I can definitely see the Bird of Prey in it! Star Trek Crossovers, Nooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!:lol 

    I actually had some sketches I did with Buzzsaw and Laserbeak where they could be cassettes, bird-bots, and also combine to form a spider-bot! Hmm...may have to dig out those plans! With Ravage getting new life, maybe I will tackle some cassettes!

    True! I just wanted a quick bash for my desktop, but it could have been a bit cleaner. If I did another, there are lots of things I would change/improve! I am saving for some calipers and a styrene cutterboard so I can do more precise fabrication.

    :eek: :D :thumb :lol :p :poke :lolol
