    the rest of the pics are of the seaker nullrays for the orignal seekers slong witha comparison shot vs the missle launcher that originally came with the toy and lastly that the wing doesnt get in the way of point the nullray at their enemies, the strait tothe side pic is make the gun look warped and sagging but what you recieve will not be this way

    those are so well done. I'm really blown away by them. They do seem a little bit, like if the seeker mold was a bigger deluxe they'd fit perfectly. Mind if I ask how you made the nozzles? i recall you saying something about using pencil sharpers, which i tried, but it did not work out, to say the least.

    better pics as promised

    whisky its a funny story i actual used my drill as a lathe...... crazy stuff really

    i took an oversized peice of styrene tube and clamped the drill on it like it where the drill bit and set it on the table. got a file and my sanding sticks and pulled the trigger on the drill and kept going till i got the desired shape and length i wanted for the cone. and i have to say it works much better than the pencil sharpener method

    Cool bro. Those looks really good. I hope you can cast them, though i wonder about undercuts and how you're going to get around that. That said, i really like this, and i know there's going to be a mob knocking down your door for sets of these. Not to pester you, but if you do need it computer-ised, you know where to find me. :) 

    To be honest, though, there is one thing that bugs me: the shoulder bit, where the ribbing is. It's too thin, imo. I would've preferred a more blocky one, though this is just a personal nitpick. Though that's offset by the sheer awesomeness that is the missile. It's orange, it's sleek, and it's going to be lodged in some poor Autobot's skidplate! :lolol 

    Note to self: Drills =/= lathes :lol  j/k

    Oh, and are you selling painted versions, or at least casts in different colours? Because i think that'd be really cool, if you could by them painted up and ready out-of-the-box. :)  Hell, you're making me want a set... my money... :(

    the ribbing does look kinda skinny in these pics but it doesnt look like that in person, but i wanted it to be different than your design and anemis's. and your not pestering its great to have a 3d modeling guy in my corner.

    glad you enjoyed the lathe idea it works like a champ

    and i do will be offereing them up painted to match a variety of the colors availible from henkei and hasbro versions as i have a mix of both
