What kind of paint?
This looks great! I was thinking about doing the same thing so I'm super curious how this turns out.
Rustoleum and Testors sprays, mostly.
Good to know that I'm not the only one who had this idea. I was going to do this but i hated that Starscream.
I know but I was referring to the animation model, it looks great, I like it a lot, I'm sorry if you were offended
I don't think anyone was offended, but thanks for the clarification anyway
UPDATE! Almost done!
This is awesome. Really wish takara would do a similar take, but alter the wings for his classic "v" shape on the chest. How does it look without the knee extensions?
Freaking amazing work!
Thanks! With the extensions off, and the tanks left at full-length, he looks like this:
I think it may be possible to have a CW Swindle combine to the lower front. So you could use that for your Jallguar.
What did you use for the hands and feet
.... WHERE DID YOU GET THAT TURRET FOR KILLBISON?!?! You're Leo Kaiser looks AMAZING, dude! I honestly don't think we could get a comparable one from Takara, just WOW.
I've seen others do similar things, but I'm not going that route. I have a Cybertron Hardtop that I'm going to re-work into Jaliguar, that will plug into Leozack's back in combined mode.
The feet are made primarily from the feet of an Energon Shockblast, and KO G1 Superion feet that have been sawed in two. Various parts from my parts-bins have been added. I'll take a couple of better photos of the feet for you and post them here.
The hands are simply from one of the black, first-version KO PE combiner hand & feet sets. The feet were repainted purple, and currently serve as feet from my UW Menasor.
Thank you very much! I mulled over my torso options, and originally considered going with a combo of CW Silverbolt and Cyclonus parts, as others had done. But, a few people had also floated the idea of using POTP Starscream, and I'm glad I opted to go in that direction.
The turret comes directly from a 1:72 scale die-cast and plastic model of a Flakpanzer Gepard anti-aircraft tank. You can get one on Amazon, but they are also available on eBay as well. The turret itself is all-plastic, and pops off the die-cast tank-base easily for modding.
looks amazing so far, got to do something about the combined for chicken thighs though. Fix that and you got a full fledged winner.
Photos of the feet. I had originally made them for my UW Menasor, but because of their narrow width, I thought they suited Liokaiser better, and repainted them.
Ah okay fair enough it just seems like the gap on his crotch area is wide enough for a Combiner port which could allow Swindle to wrap around the torso.
Interested to see that Hardtop as Jallguar.
Wow this is awesome looking, great work Corvus!
gotta ask though, what do the legs look like sideways like the original toy and animation model?
This is really awesome looking, and I'm going to give it a shot myself, buuuut before I do, which size head did you use? Was it the medium size, as shown in the link?
It is indeed the medium sized one.
