    Masterpiece Swoop: Work in Progress UPDATES [NEW PICS ADDED 2/26]

    ADDED SOME DETAILED PICS OF THE STYRENE WORK ON THE TORSO. Hey fellas! Here are some updated pics on my MP Swoop. A commission for The Veteran. Another patient human being who deserves a hug for that. As some of you may remember I started him in August or September then got real busy. Here's the original link:http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/275470-masterpiece-swoop.html
    He started off modeled after MP Screamer with junker parts but started looking too clunky and would've ended up bigger than MP Grimlock. This was all befor MP Skywarp showed up and started warming the shelves at our local Wal-Marts. So I scrapped what I had done and coughed up sixty beans and revamped his ass.
    The wings and head crest are just thin styrene templates in place temporarily. I'm modeling him after Sunbow Swoop and IDW's More Than Meets The Eye version. Got a really creative way to deal with the legs/talons transformation too! I'll post that soon enough!

    Wow, the MP seeker head makes a great Swoop head with a little modifying. Can't wait to see how this turns out.

    Wow, can't believe you scrapped the other guy, I know you put in mad work on that joint. Either way, I'm impressed with both.
