    Hi Everyone (long time no post for me),

    Going to a costume party in a day or so, thought I'd share a picture of the work in progress of my costume that I'm building - i got ambitious and decided to go as Starscream.

    The photo is just a collection of the parts i've built and painted so far - it's not bolted together but you can sort of get the idea.

    Still to do:
    * Build the 2nd shoulder air intake, paint them both, and mount them to the chest piece
    * Paint the cockpit section and mount it to the chest piece
    * Build the arm guns and paint them, bolt them to the shoulders.
    * Bolt the wings to the chest piece
    * Paint the left shoulder, bolt both shoulders to the chest piece
    * Make some straps for the hips to make them sit at the right level
    * Modify the left forearm and paint it
    * Build the head/helmet and paint it
    cover the whole costume in some automotive clear to stop paint rubbing off.

    If I can get all of that done tonight (unlikely that i'll get the helmet done until tomorrow), I should hopefully have another pic up of it all assembled

    Cheers,
    Smoe

    updated pic.

    legs assembled, wings and chest bolted together. still need to touch up the wings with a slightly lighter shade of red like the body, and stencil the logos.

    can't be bothered with the helmet tonight - paint fumes have given me a doom headache!
