Bad@ss brotherman! I may have to give up my non-TFing version for one of yours! So nice!
Slow down, only joking. That was quick.
Looks great, fit in with the rest of the team for sure. Id say do a shorter tail Sludge though, you probably are. Im guessing thats why you didnt put it on already...
Hi and yes the tail will be much shorter and i aim to make the all the limbs look much different from sludge. i would like to stay away from a Hasbro twin re-paint.
thanks for you input. i looked into the stuff i use and i think it is HIPS Sheets, some kind of recycled plastic sheet. i will look into it a bit harder and update you when i know more
Well here is another update and I now have the transformation sorted the next steps will be the clean up and then the detail. I have added as well a tilting mechanism for the Dino head as can be seen in some of the photos. this has been a lot harder than my sludge and at one stage nearly got binned.I know it rough at this stage and is still WIP.
Thanks for you time in looking and please take the time to post a comment.
Many thanks Dawgstar
All the best and thanks again
WOW I know in the future I'l build all MP Dino's myself and will take notes sir thnx
I knew silverbolt would work well for the head. Do the hands go on after transfomation, I thought they were going to tuck away,
Looks really cool, I love how youve managed to cross MP & G1 together. Definately G1 style down to a tee..
Looking promising. A little blocky in robot mode.
looking good. I can't wait to see this refined!!
You've got alotta work into this and it's all coming together nicely. The head is balls-on perfect.
Dammit Dawg, YOU are a master of this craft. Beautiful.
Dude,you are one serious builder! Huge respect!
Outstanding, the head with it's lip looks mightily peeved, great job, can't wait to see this and Sludge painted.
Hi, Sadly the lower arms are to narrow to fit the hands inside but i may look into changing this but i dont think it is a huge biggie.
Im glade you like the build I tried to keep this as close to G1 but bringing it up to MP scale and up to date.
as for the head i sat looking at it and thinking does it does it not and then thought what the hell added some putty and the shaded eyes and then i thought yep thats Slag! lol.
I look at the hands and I reckon if you hollow out the blue toe, and up to below the hand. then put a pin through making it hinge up into the foot. I think that would tuck the hand away nicely. However its you build and Im just inputting to it.
Keep the fab updates coming.
Impressive and inspirational. You’re giving me ideas for future projects Sir.
very interesting, just curious, with his hands are they parts that you have to plug into the dino feet and also what size is he? the legs seem a little to thin to balance all the weight properly but besides that brilliant absolutely brilliant, different approach to what I am using I must say but still brilliant.
Hi Jordy, he is making Slag to go with his awsome Masterpiece Sludge. So its MP Size.
The answer to the hands question is on page 3 of this thread...
Thank you so much I am a big fan of your work.
OMG I hope the top of little fingers grows back. Im sat in a and e and have been waiting for 45 mins for someone to fix it I Will up date soon! Never push hard on a knife if you need to you are using the wrong tool. Do as I say and not what I did. :-(
