    Here is my first... And it is Blackout...

    I used flix's back fix and added some additional stuff...

    -Gun extension on front gun...
    -chest cannon


    He is made up of Blackout and Whirl combo as I ran into some issues with the first try including an almost amputated finger with the xacto......

    -working on adding skorponok inside the tail and almost have it done... will post it when done...

    -added magnet to arm so I could add tail rotor to it...

    -added additional hoses and such to add detail and a head to toe paint finish...

    Will add photos of alt mode in a bit...

    update... alt mode pics added as well as some better resolution pics... Also made some changes to Skorponok and need to do some further work with him to get him to fit in the tail...

    Pics added

    Pretty nice detailing with the added hoses. You might wanna paint in the windows in a solid color (like black). They don't look so hot with the edges just outlined like that.

    I like the windows. They seem to make it look more stealth-like. Some weathering in alt mode might look nice. Even so it looks really cool like it is.

    Looks good so far, my only recommendation would be to add some panel lining on the helicopter.

    He looks good! That's a really good mold to play with. It's got tons of details that a good paint job can bring out and lots of places to personalize it, which you have. What's the back fix?

    welcome to the club dude ;) 
    but remember: chicks love scars! but say you've got them when you were a mercenary for the south African government instead of being a customizer.

    love the extra tubes and cannons, does that still work for the transformation?

    some mild weathering would be nice, I used A lighter color dry brush layer on this one to accentuate the details instead of a dark wash.


    as I'm here I could just answer that one. here is the back fix and the tutorial.
