    its been a while since ive posted anything so i figured i would show off my longhaul.

    i articulated his neck, added hinges to the roof rack above his head so it folds back. i also added ball joint wrists, and articulated fingers.

    i also tried drybrushing the green, its added a nice shading effect.
    i also added some rockets from tf/marvel crossovers ironman

    He looks great, but I would encourage you to build a light box. Your obviously VERY talented, but its hard to pick up a consistent green and other colors due to the pics.

    With better pics, I'm sure we can see how truly awesome this is.

    i used the same hinges for his fingers and his 'roofrack'
    they come from spiderman origins doc ock, all his tentacles are hinged.
    ive used those joints in so many customs, they're great for fingers

    Love how you have him posable hands and fingers and the missile launchers like in the film. While I do want this toy badly, it is unfortunate he isnt big and bulky like in the film and had given him missile launchers like in the film.

    its pretty simple, just cut the claw fingers up to get a lot of hinges

    4 claws x 3 fingers x 2 hinges = 24 little hinges, i'll try to take some better pics asap

    Fantastic work, love the articulated fingers, that part must've been hard work?
    Even though it looks superb, I suspect the pics doesn't do your work proper justice :wink:

    This looks really cool. I agree with what AX23 said....get a nice lightbox, or make one. You do some really nice work. I loved your Starscream from last years TFcon, so I know what your work looks like in person, and the pics aren't doing it justice...IMO.

    I do however love this pic:
