    A commission in which I am creating as a tribute to the late and great TFmaster's original idea (seen here : http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/radicons-customs/210862-universe-timelines-classics-thunderwing.html)

    At this time, I've got the arms complete (forearms from a Megamorph Ghost Rider) modded to fit onto E. Megatron's elbows (tough fuse)

    Currently, working on sculpting/building the chest. I will go for a look similar to this awesome concept art by Don Figueroa

    [​IMG]

    We'll get back to that later.

    Also, I've done a little work on the head. It was a Transmetal (?) Megatron head, modded leaving the face, sides of face from Vector Prime, back of head from RID Prime, Styrene "wings" above brow, some fixit sculpt, etc, etc, etc.

    Head has a working self-contained LED, battery and switch.

    Still got some more work to do on the head, sand it, refine it, etc.

    Early stages of the chest (sculpting and styrene combo)

    Damn sir, damn. Seeing this makes the wait for me to jump back into customizing even more unbearable.

    I am liking what I see thus far and I always thought TigerHawk's head would have been a killer head for Thunderwing but this one is hell of a lot better.

    I also want to point at my Generations Thunderwing and frown.

    I'm still pretty bummed out about TFMaster dying...he pretty much revolutionized transformers customizing and made it a much more accessible hobby with his tutorials and community set up. If it weren't for him, we wouldn't likely have nearly as many of the great customs we've gotten since he died, he opened up the floodgates of awesome. Sure, his customs may not hold up to some of the work we see today (they're still great though), but I imagine his work would have progressed amazingly if he hadn't died. It's such a shame he isn't around any more, but cool to see so many picking up where he left off. It's amazing that so many of his ideas are still giving inspiration to people. Keep up the good work, Frenzy_Rumble!

    This project really makes me miss seeing TFMaster's work, and I was just looking at his Thunderwing pictures last week.

    This is looking really great thus far Frenzy_Rumble, and I will be looking forward to seeing how this turns out.

    sorry to say this, but you use the "D"-words excessive, it almost scared me :( 

    anyway... the message is clear... and to the OP, this will turn out great :)
