    Hi, this is my first attempt at kitbashing. I saw a Masterpiece Swoop which was an amazing creation by a a genius know as 'Heirofhtedog. I found it on Ebay as I was searching for the latest TF masterpiece. I couldnt afford what it went for, an amazing £1,500. Never the less, I wanted one myself because it was so awsomw. So I studied the pictues and did loads of hours resaerch. Eventually I pluck up enough courage to have ago mayself. 3 months later I have only a decent paint job to do and some minor filling to be done.

    Hope you enjoy what you see.

    Please let me know what you think, and any ideas would be greatly recieved.

    thanks everyone,

    I would like to touch him up and finish it properly. I need an airbrush with compressor to give Swoop the finish he needs. Im going to raise the money by selling a Perfect Grade Gundam Model kit (brand new RX-178), still in box to hopefully get what I need.

    This project was much more complex than I had originally anticipated. So many things that needed doing to make it work and i have learned a heck of alot in such a sort space of time too. I know I have only scratched the surface of kitbashing, but eager to grow to be able to do more.

    Great paint, great looking robot and "beast" modes, all around great.

    But the best part? He can walk on all fours like a really Pteradon can. And that's real damn sweet.
