    Ok guy this is my first time posting here this is also my first real custom that isn't just a repaint. This is going to be Roft Vortex when it's done.

    [​IMG]

    This is the first mod that I did.

    [​IMG]

    I cut off the tail of the copter mode as you can see to free up some movement. I then cut off the tail blade and mounted a magnet to it.

    [​IMG]

    I also mounted magnet on the tail as well as the left arm.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This is so I can mount the tail blade on the arm as a weapon and on the tail for alt mode.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I am also working on a custom gun that will mount onto the underside of the tail in alt mode and the right arm in robot mode. I will have pics of this later.
    I still have alot of work to do to him before he is done but it's coming along nicely. Let me know what you guys think so far.
    Well I got some more work done with him. I started his gun today I thinnk I will mount this to the other are in bot with another magnet and to the tail of his alt mode as well. Let me know what you guys think.

    lol Mighty Putty? Isn't that the stuff Billy Mayes did an infomercial on? :lol  I never would've thought to use that for customs, or rather, kitbashing. Thanks for the tip! Also, your Vortex is looking great. I love how he looks without the giant helicopter kibble hanging off of him. :thumb
