    When I started this project, I actually thought that a Kup from the MP-01 mold wouldn't be that complicated. Man was I wrong. The basic transformation is pretty simple, but getting it all smoothed out and lined up was tricky. It took lots of styrene, Bondo and other various fillers and putties.
    A big tool that I tried out for the first time on this project was a wood rasp. It's a heavy toothed file, intended for wood, but they can cut though plastic really fast. I mainly used one on the shoulders to round them out. Once I got them ground down I resurfaced them with Bondo auto body filler and Quikwood wood repair putty.
    Recoil, Kup's Targetmaster was made from a Classics Legends Starscream.

    Thanks everyone! I'm really glad that you like him. I didn't go into this one thinking that it would take so long or that it would be so close to my heart by the end.
    Here's a few more pics and some early WIPs.

    That alt mode is so very cool. The robot mode is great as well. This is some mighty fine work.
