    This Devastator - High Tower mold was grossly out of proportion with relatively little detail, wish Hasbro could have done a better job with this mold.

    In the actual tower crane, the boom would be much longer, but taking in to consideration of transformation to the Devastator, I decided to only double the length of the boom.

    Added some cable attachments for the counter weights add the back of the vehicle.

    Added chains for the hook.

    High Tower has the least weathering amongst all the constructicons. Hence the clean look.
    Hope you like it.

    Yah, that will be great. No official images or concept arts for high tower bot mode yet. Why high tower is left out?:mad 

    You can try key in crawler crane in ebay for diecast models. For what i know only metal diecast are available....

    Thanks guys. I had faced much problems balancing the tension of the six wires for the counterweight parts.
    As for pictures as arm, will be ready during weekends. Now busy doing weathering for the remaining 2 and also desert diorama.
