    Decided to open a new thread for my Superion project,
    as I am adding more sculpt pieces to it. Since my
    last posting (coupled with Windcharger), I decided to
    change the head to look more G1 cartoonish.

    I used a grinding wheel to trim down his chest. A little
    screwdriver work allowed me to remove his white wing
    ears without destroying them. I added the antenna
    ears with pieces from a cybertron menasor. The visor
    and facemask are apoxie sculpt.

    I also added more Gundam parts to cover up the now
    open areas in his chest and also to give his forearms
    more armor. Also added some apoxie sculpt to cover up
    gaps in his wrists.

    Note he is NOT painted yet... I did a little test with white
    and yellow but it's nowhere near final.

    EDIT 10/11/10:
    Did mode work on the individual Aerialbots. They're coming along nicely.
    First up is Slingshot:

    I altered his transformation somewhat and gave him new wings from a KO Gundam.
    Decided to keep the nose gun since he's a sharpshooter.

    EDIT: more images, added Fireflight this time

    hmmm at first i though the arms were to skinny... now the legs...
    so either increase the leg bulk or decrease the arms :D  but the robot mode looks cool!

    i think it,s his choice you dont need to follow a specific guideline to make a great custom ... for example animated doesnt follow the traditional robot form so this might be the case ... as i recall allot of your customs has that same look that this does (being disproportionate) was it intentional or did you not see it ?

    anyways keep at it vidmouse and do it the way you want i like it ! the problem i see with it is the feet that might cause you stability issues, i would beef them up a bit to make sure he does,nt fall down

    keep us posted !

    Thanks for the vote of confidence and for the tip!
    You are one of my favorite customizers so it's great to get this feedback.

    The other Aerialbots have been similarly redone like Slingshot, just haven't
    taken the photos yet. Hope to get to more tonight.
