Side pipes designed..
I am very excited about this custom, you've got some sweet ideas!
Thanks very much. If all goes well I think this will be my art contest entry at TFCon in the fall.
Today's update is completed headlights, roof spikes and wheel studs.
Headlights were not fun. Bumblebee's existing ones have a bunch of different angles that were not easy to measure, but I think I got close enough. I'm not sure how I feel about the wheel stud, though. The more I think about it, the more I want to just make whole new wheels that are derived from Lockdown's in order to get further from the Bumblebee mould.
Well. This is providing to be nice.
Life's been busy, so I haven't had much time to work on this. I finished the design for the front replacement wheels tonight. I'll be working on reproducing the design for the larger rear wheels in the coming days.
Damn! I might want those for my TFP hot shot!
I cannot wait to see this finished. It's gonna look so badass.
This is looking great so far!
I wasn't feeling the big domed spike on the wheel so I reworked the hubcap and spike design to more closely mirror the original figure's. I like it a lot more. I also completed the modifications for upsizing it to fit the rear wheel, so next up are the spoilers.
I wrapped up the design for the front spoiler today, and put a little mock-up together of the parts so far.
All that is left for vehicle mode is the rear spoiler.
HOLY SHIT!! This car works as Lockdown...though we need to see his new robot mode...
God, that mockup though
I mocked it up since I've been working on this for a while and finally had enough done to get a good idea of what it'll look like.
When I finish the head design then I'll do a robot mode. I think all I need to do for robot mode yet is head, neck, chainsaw and feet, so it shouldn't take too long. I'm anxious to get this guy done.
My god that mock up!
This all looks AMAZING!!!!
Were anxious to see him done.
I've just wrapped up the designs for the rear spoiler and feet:
All that's left is the chainsaw weapon for the left hand, and his head & neck.
Chainsaw is done!
All that's left now is the head, and then it'll be time to print all of the parts.
