    Hey guys ok this one has been a long time coming!

    inspired by all the great versions of this (buzby74 sculptbot thyvipera and heirofthedog to name a few) i decided to try my own hand at this

    id like to thank buzby74,his advice and help has been instrumental with this so cheers bro!

    im trying to keep it g1 so im using silverbolt as a base as i feel for a cartoon vibe this is better than a seeker at least for me

    im going an unusual route with the wings with movie megatron,i love these and there not to far away from swoop already and they have a flaping mechanism!cool or what?!

    also i discovered something cool born out of disaster....i cut out all silverbolts chest for some stupid reason then when looking for a replacement part i used the leg from rid wedge,after looking closely i accidentally solved the problem of having the ptera head and robot head connected as if by magic!since the wedge leg had a flap and a place for a ball joint

    as you can see ITS VERY ROUGH! so please bear with me until the final result!also he has no head and fin yet so everything will look in better scale at the end,and im going to paint this as g1 as possible,i like how frogdna painted sculpbots very g1 accurate

    comments greatly appreciated!cheers guys

    looking great. i really dig those wings. best of luck with the robot head. I found that to be the biggest challenge, getting the robot head to work with the dino mode.

    No way man, I had that idea on those wings a year ago. Great miinds think alike. Ive even have the Megatron in my shed for a build like this for ages. I thinkk the wings are awsome for MP Swoop.

    I think you might have hit the nail on the head with this one mate.
    I really like the uses of the parts.

    Dammit! You beat me to it... I had a set of those TFTM07 Megatron wings set aside for my Swoop project too! They are too perfect! :) 

    Nice call on the head too... but... which Zoid is that? I thought it was Raynos at first, but I realize now it's not.

    thats right and another lucky thing about these wings is that those missiles fit in the clips already there with no modding at all!cheers

    i would have never imagined that myself.

    My silverbolt came today, so Im gonna have a bash at this version too. Mine will differ of course. My view is that the silverbolt mor has limited articulation to the feet which hampers the posibility of the figure. I might throw in more of an MP seeker to the mix and do something a bit different with the wings. Cant wist to get started with this project.

    Cant wait for the to see another update. I totally dig the robot mode. very G1 indeed.

    Damn, I knew there was a reason I should have bought the Gravity Ptera when it was on liquidation years ago... ! I'm really impressed that the size matches this bash so well!
