    It's been a long time since I've shared anything. Apologies to all! I had been spending the last 4 months adjusting to life in USA and my new job. It's been a swell time!

    I finally settled and got my workspace prepared so I can continue doing customs again. :thumb 
    What I'm sharing today is my version of legends Ravage.

    Mods include:
    - Elbow joints
    - LED eye
    - Posable jaws
    - Neck joint
    - Sharpened spinal spikes
    - Sharpened tail weapon
    - Sharpened ears and cheek spikes
    - Cannon barrel holes
    - Battle scars
    - Dirty paint job​

    I'll let the pictures do the talking...

    From the side, you can see clearly the elbow joints, various spikes and the mouth closed.

    Hope you guys like it.

    Nice. An already cool figure made even better with some simple adjustments.
    It's such a small figure, but the paint looks so sharp. Awesome job.

    Thanks dude. I was never really away, just MIA because I had nothing much to show! I hope to give more frequent updates from now on...

    Thank you! I would say the paint is half the story. It's also much to do with the quality of the camera used. I was just lucky that my pictures turned out alright. There are a lot of great painters here on the forums, and I must say it's often the camera work that lets them down. :eek: 

    Thank you! I would have further mod him to be able to launch out of Soundwave, but I lost steam and wanted to move on. But thanks for the compliment!

    Do you mean the silvery edges or the dark patches? The former is just drybrushing, and the later is careful airbrushing of flat black to simulate soot/smoke/burns.

    your works are great man.
    didn't know you have relocated to US.
    you have done a tremendous great job on such a tiny figure.

    i loved your scratch built mini ravage in your siggy.
    and all the others too.

    Yeah it's great he's able to do crouching and dynamic poses now. The only part that's annoying is the tail cuz it's still one piece and unposable. I may use a ball joint on the next one's tail who knows?

    I'd believe there are a few customizers who did the LED job for Ravage before, you can reference them. But for myself, the wires come out the back of the head and into the 'spinal cord' area. The button cell is located in a slot in the chest

    That's like one of the greatest compliments I could have received. Thank you meisterworks!
    Yeah I love my mini-Ravage too. Too bad he's so lonely back in Singapore :(  Check out his gallery!
