    Okay so here is my work in progress for Nosecone. As I stated in my Guess Who thread, I am using parts from Astrotrain, RID Grimlock, and a cast of PR: Operation Overdrive drilldriver.

    I removed the tailfin. I moved the thruster attachment from the back and moved to the front which changes his chest look in robot mode. I am reworking the back so it is thinner so I can use the existing shoulder pegs to attached RID Grimlocks legs to make Nosecone's new arms. The thinner back will still allow for the head to swing back in vehicle mode. This is it for now. I will be working on the drill part next week. Hope you like and look forward to your comments.

    Great start, Any way to so some dremeling to the interior of thet part of Grimmy's treads that open to form hands? I'm pretty sure you could get some Gundam or other smaller hands mounted to the center, and when you closed the treads, they would close over the hands.

    I'm digging your great start. :thumb

    Thanks for the great idea! I hadn't even thought about hands yet, I will get this on the to do list.

    That's a cool use of Astrotrain! Those grimlock arms are perfect (you planning on adding hands?)

    What's the plan with the shuttle nose in drill mode? Awesome work so far.
