    Greetings people TFW2005. Long time listener, first time caller.
    I'm one of the admins over at Sector70.com and after an invite here from REDLINE a while back, I finally got a few minutes to sign up and post something. Still not sure how all this works over here but I'll get the hang of it soon enough.

    So here they are, my MP coneheads. The head fits in using the little technique I've attached. the wings are all custom cut from styrene and sanded. Ramjets wings also include thrusters from a model kit and the fins were cut off from his legs and reattached to the wings. Thrust's vertical take off equipment is cast from storm hawk's motorbike back wheel and an air freshener casing. You can follow Thrusts' beginning to end follow along at

    Thanks for looking guys.
    Cheers,
    wj

    Super Sweet Work! You've really done a great job on these. I doubt HasTak could do any better. Welcome to one of the best TF message boards on the web

    Maaaaaan! These are some of the most impressive customs I've ever seen! It makes me want to try... although I know I'd fail miserably to get even close to what you've done...
