    Hello Gang,

    mostly of us (maybe all) know that the Head of DOTM is sitting on a Balljoint. OK fine. And all of us who knows that, knows too, that his Head has a lack of articulation! 'Cause his Neck and his Chin hinder Shockwave to look up, Down or sloping his head like a cute dog ;) 

    This is before you did the Mod:

    Not really much you see!

    So i decided to give him his articulation back:

    Much better I think! What's your opinion?

    All you need is a Screwdriver and a File.

    File of the marked parts, but round down the edges for better and "fluent" articulation, and file not to much, 'cause you could damage the Balljoint-Mount inside the Head

    Final result:

    The same thing could be done with the Head of DOTM Skyhammer for better looking Up, but especially for Looking Down! But it's your choice!

    Have fun :)

    Limewire: Great work here and elsewhere! You do a great job of making things easy to understand, which gives nubes like me the courage to try stuff. Bravo! (btw shockwave looks amazing with the added "emotion")
