    In case some of you were wondering what the Veteran was talking about in my Ecto1 post, here's a peek! Masterpiece Swoop. In perfect scale with MP Grimlock and once finished will sport a 22 inch wingspan! He is much much more along than shown in the pics and I will be posting more very soon.
    His upper body is modeled directly after MP Starscream and the legs after G1 Swoop and of course added articulation. I'm nearing completion on many of my commissions so these are exciting times for me and I can't wait to share 'em all with yuz!

    YES. Finally, some Swoop info. You've been mentioning this to me for the past two months or so! Looking good so far! But...........two inch wingspan?! what the deuce?! Surely that's a typo!!

    Oooh I see Classics Inferno's arm armour!!

    That is an awesome idea. Can you post a walkthrough on what and how you did this when you are done. I am trying to learn as much as possible. I have always loved model building and feel pretty confident about my skills, but never have I attempted kitbashing. I have alot of ideas though, but Im starting very small. I need practice with materials like milliput and resin (molds). My first practice will be turning Brawl ROTF into G2 Meg with a G1 color and look. I have read the helpful info here also, so any help/advice will be appreciated. I am requesting tutorial/walkthrough for your swoop because, I am curious to know what parts you used from which toys to accomplish this MP and any other skills you used. Cant wait to see it finished, I love Swoop.

    O man, what great usage of Inferno parts. He's got a great structure already so I'm positive this is going to turn out stellar.
