    Thanks to everyone for you support. Good news my nano-bots must have been working overtime through the night and today some feeling has returned to the tip. The kind Doctors offered to operate on it so to possible encourage the nail to grow back straight but at a risk of making it worse, i thought about it and i think i can live with a slightly wonky nail.the bone may join back up but wont cause any harm left where it is so looks like it will be ok.will know 100% next week after the doctors look at it again. so when i got in i picked up the knife and cut a few bits of styrene to get over the hate that i now held for it and will be back to work at this as soon as it heals. in the mean time i will be sitting back planning the detail.

    Back soon Arun

    Update 4

    Hi all. Good news on my finger it is going to be 99% fine.
    So i was sick of sitting watching TV and thought what the hell pick up the knife and carry on with Slag.
    I have got loads done and have changed a few bits. i stillllllllll have loads to carry on with but can't push it to much to soon. I am so happy with how this is going and at this stage of the build Sludge it was no where near as good so this should end up even better than my last MP. I have bulked him up and in his robot feet can now tilt for when he stands at ease. I hope to do a bit more tomorrow and like always please let me know what you think. hope you like Arun

    LOL and I am glad you like the update. done loads more today and will try and add some photos later if i get a chance.



    Hi.
    The mid size Slag was my 2nd custom I tried some 10 years ago before i ever knew that other people did this kind of thing, It was a blue KO slag that i picked up cheep , added some ball joints and hand painted it to look G1 cartoon. I then gave up customs because i decided that I was not that great at painting so went a bought a Nissan 200sx s13 my other love and still have. (Highly customized as one would expect) any way 8 years later i found this website and was blown away by Masterpiece Devastator and just could not afford to ever buy one for my self and thought "um i wonder if i could? no i.... what the hell ill build one" and that is how i got into building and this time i was hooked!

    I love eveything, but the horns. a little less of a curve and it would be spot on. you can see it in the side comparison pics. Other than that great Craftsmanship!!

    Hi. I really like the horns but had already thought that some of you would want curved some would want rounded and ...... so what i have done is made these with a threaded joint so that i can cast many different types of horns. in fact the whole thing this time round i have made so that i can cast it to make many more unlike sludge that i had to rip apart to beable to make molds.
    thanks for looking and letting me know what you think.

    all the best Arun

    p.s big update to come tomorrow night!!!!!

    Hi back as promised.

    I have done some more details to dino mode and have added some very special L.E.Ds. no switch here to turn em on. when you look at the photo you will see my latest desinge in lighting. i use what im sure i will see more of a reed switch.you can place this any where upto a 2cm thick and use a standard magnex magnet to turn it on. the stronger the magnet the thicker the wall.i will be selling these swithes on ebay soon and will be priced at £12 for 50 and will post for free of charge to any radicon in the world.
    please let me know what you think if you have had time to look please make a post.
