    First of all let me give credit to Payton for doing this first and inspiring me. Also wan de real for doing the best version of it with the lights and pizzaz. Sadly mine is not anywhere near as good but i am really happy with how the shoulder and leg articulation came out as it was my first proper mod since getting my dremel for xmas.

    I went for the more cartoon colour scheme, although after seeing wan de reals i think i may buy another and go for the figure scheme, great inspiration for it.

    Id recommend anyone give this a try as its an easy mod and an easy figure to then make a masterpiece sized bot

    Any ideas you have to help my mods long trerm please let me know

    Thanks

    Just realised the pic of inside his tape deck is not great

    Oh and also waiting for pens to do panel lining then will panel line the details on the fore arms

    I would also say i think there is a way to make articulation of legs easier and better from looking at how i htink da real has done his but will wait to see his tutorial

    I want to do ravage, frenzy and rumble but not sure what figures to use as base figures yet so they will go on the list of ideas to look for :)

    hey not bad at all Deadfett....its awesome for the first try...you can try it to improve the paint by do the airbrust to be more thin...yes Gundam Pen will help a lot with the touch-up inside the deck...yes the articulations is still can be improve..actually it just simple..

    just post hand tutorials if you like to watch..about the articulations tutorial will do that in the near future after i clear some commsions works...:wink:
