    But do you have a list of things you plan on fixing? Door wings, chest, etc

    Well the chest is a big issue for me (obviously), but im relocating the wings and thinning out his back, also moving the wheels to better sit behind his shoulders as they should. Working on transformable cannons in his arms too. Aside from all of that a new paint job, and moving his back window wings to be more accurate and not confined to the movement of his main wings.

    I can see that you've cut the chest pieces to make them smaller like they are on screen. Do you plan on doing anything with the center piece, to make it crumple in like it does on the cgi? And I can see that you cut those fenders off with a piece of the hood, so his hood doesn't stick so far up behind his shoulders right? Those are what I see so far. Do you have any more planned mods or just those two? I like what you've done so far and I'm excited to see it progress.

    Edit:
    Sounds ambitious, but you seem to be confident and it looks like it's working so far lol

    Thanks for the support! For the chest i plan to rebiuld the cut away pieces to pinch around the chevy symbol. And yes the hood is connected to clear up the shoulder area (the hood was too far back in bot mode for me). Arm cannons r still in my plans for sure

    20180822_153931.jpg 20180822_153841.jpg This is my plan for his wings, adding more articulation and pulling his backpack in a bit. Still waiting on styrene, more to come soon.

    So as it turns out much of bees transformation is based around pieces that, when connected create a lot of pressure, pulling the rest of the frame into shape. Im currently in the process of working around this.
