    so! i got the head i wanted and thought would be perfect for my impactor. BUT way to small.
    so i saw a few people on here use Generations Darkmount or Skullgrin as a body for Impactor. and the head size was a lot better so i scrapped the old one.

    and now for my new Impactor!

    one person i saw on here just did a straight repaint. buut Skullgrins body has too many curves and not enough boxy parts like Impactor does. so i pulled out the styrene and go to work on reforming his parts.

    what im doing is:
    - remade his forarms with styrene
    - remade his thighs with styrene
    - adding detail to the legs with styrene
    - reworking the chest with styrene to make it look more accurate to the
    - made him his harpoon hand.
    - the head (rts perceptor) adding details using styrene
    - use styrene to build his shoulder gun with a base of cyb hotshots gun
    - and i hope to try box up his shoulders but im not sure how that will work with transformation

    UPDATE 7/22/11
    I did not like the chest at all.. the old one that is. so i rebuilt another. a lot more slim. and i think it looks a lot better.
    i finally bough some apoxie sculpt, so that helped with filling in space. and soon ill sculpt the head. im just waiting on my sculpting tools to be delivered. here the new chest

    UPDATE #2 7/16/11 OLD CHEST
    made the knees
    almost done with the chest. im really dissapointed at how wide his chest appears to be. i think its just because of the way the mold is. maybe i can remake the chest to work out a better more thinned up way.

    that is some wonderfully clean styrene work, especially on the chest. This is looking pretty good so far.

    If I had any suggestions I would, but I don't. Still this wip looks like Impactor.
