    Could you explain the plastic board you are using again. I'm really digging how you are doing this, but the descriptions given for the material for the wings and such isn't clear if it's a product I can buy at Best Buy or I have to ask a sales rep to let me have. You also mention some ice cream place on the coast, but again it's not clear if it's something you buy, are given or steal lol! I live in Arizona, and don't know where to start looking for this stuff here, so your advice is appreciated. Also, your encouragement is working as well! Inspiring to see you make something so great from such rough and raw materials!

    wow so much interest in what i build from. I phone a company that i tracked down that print for Walls IceCream and after some blaggin was told it is called Foamalux. I tend to get mine free by asking sales reps or if you can catch the contractor before he throws it in a land fill. You can buy on line and here is a uk link.

    I try to use anything that is going to be thrown this way i do my bit for the environment and save money at the same time.

    Hi all as you well know i have been busy with my mp range but i have not forgot swoop. after making the moulds for bombshell's legs i cast an extra set so that i could hack them up for swoop. i need to make the hip part wider but this is how it looks to date.

    Thanks allot dude.

    Nothing really to update apart from the fact that the new legs i made caused a major transformation problem so i had to hack Swoop in half and make a whole new waist and hips. scary times!

    I have made the arms and just finishing the hips and will upload some photos in the next day or 2. also will have the feet done by then as well.

    you will all love the next update.

    Thanks for looking DS

    You Got To See This

    Hi Rad's Here is what I have done to Swoop.
    As promised new arms and legs.
    I think I have nailed him I still have the small detail parts to finish but overall i happy with him.

    The biggest thing that I had a Bug with most Swoops is the Dino head got in the way of he's view in bot mode but you can see from the photos the beak sits nice and low down.

    Please have your input and let me know what you think.

    All the best DS

    It always amazes me when you do these. I only have one problem..and that the torso to leg proportions. The upper legs look a bit...stumpy to me..so it looks as if hes wearing a diaper sort of...maybe its just me..

    Other than that though..your entire MP line is fantastic

    I was kinda thinking something like this ^

    Torso is a little too long,thighs to short and lower legs look way too long BUT that's IMO....no one listens to me anyways

    thanks guys for your input


    to tweek them a little but when he is stood in front of you they look fine

    Hi the upper legs need to be shorter so that when he transformers the legs fit tight to the body. i may be able to tweek them a little but when he is stood in front of you they look fine

    LOL it looks funny at the mo but it is not pinned in place as high as it should be and is sagging forward. when it is done it will be glued higher up.
