    Minor modification. I really liked the head I used because it has that mouth peice which looks pretty close to the OG snare. It was from movie blazemaster.

    Update. How I moded the figure to allow this transformation to lock snugly on page 2

    Oh my god. I have that exact figure to be Snare waiting for inspiration to strike and an appropriate head.
    Might give up now. Can't top that it's great!

    I thought Blazemaster was a helicopter. This was the terrordive mold. Looks good either way.

    The head was frome Blazemaster, the figure is Terradive.


    This looks excellent. The only thing stopping me from stealing this recipe myself is that I can't think of any suitable molds for the rest of the Predators.

    By request. This is how I modded the teradive figure to allow this transformation to lock. After the modification these two modifications all you have to do is skip the flipping of the canopy

    First remove this thingy over here. You can remove it by removing the pin or just cut it out

    [​IMG]

    Next remove and sand out a portion of the front mini wing which will allow the wing to allow clearance so it does not have to fold. You just need to remove a few millimeters

    [​IMG]

    On there you go

    For the wing all I did was cut out the connector on the leg and glued it to the back pack where it locks in vehicle mode.

    [​IMG]

    Again the head is from Movie blazemaster. I had to use apoxy to attach a gundum model kit ball socket joint that fit the terradive ball
    The paint is ford engin red testors enamel.
    Druid blue testors acrylic
    Custom mix of green and yellow tamyia acrylic

    Hope to see more of these customs
