Continued from the earlier thread, but I figured I should make a proper title for it. I'm making a roughly 1/10-1/12 scale version of Smokescreen using a Tamiya Datsun body and an Energon Unicron. As I said in the other thread, I started by taking Unicron apart and making sure everything would fit inside the car body, and figuring out the most important piece of engineering: getting the front of the car from horizontal to vertical while getting the head out of the way. I've been busy with other stuff for months so it was only a few days ago that I started on the head, thinking that if I get this part done I'll be more motivated to keep on working. The head is 90% done, all that's left is filling in gaps (from within) with green stuff to prevent some of the light leakage, adding detailing and putting in the eyes. All I can say is that my admiration of people like Anemis and Lobo has grown exponentially. Building stuff from scratch is ridiculously time consuming and there's always some part that refuses to cooperate. With this nearly done, I'll be working on the torso design. I have most of the Lego parts I need but I'm thinking of ordering every part in black so I don't need to paint them and get lots of paint rubbing in there. I don't want to mess with the tight fits of the Lego part. Any suggestions for panel lining? I'm thinking that I'll just use an angled scalpel blade to make thin grooves.
