    Well after 130 days & around 400+ hrs. I'm done.
    Long story short, this was a crazy idea I had one night.
    I wanted to test myself & see just how far I could go with my modding.
    I'm not going to bore you with my rambling as I'll let the pics speak for themselves.

    I'm pretty damn proud of myself. 4 months ago, I would never have dreamed I could pull this off.

    If anyone wants to know how many bots went into this project.
    The shopping list goes like this.

    1 Unicron, 1 Primus, 1 Dreadwind, 1 Oversized KO Grimlock
    1 TFA Waspinator, 1 TFA Blurr, 1 TFA Samuri Prowl, 1 Treadbolt, 1 BW Depthcharge,
    2 Hailstorms, 2 Onslaughts, 1 set of Alt Prowl hands, Chainguns from a Gundam,
    some Neoshitfer parts, a shit ton of Styrene.

    If you would like to see the project as it happened.
    Head on over to my Youtube Channel. There is a timelapse photo slideshow,
    from day one to day 130.

    halfshell was always going to be a one off crazy idea. That being said,
    I've got a few ideas for other members of God Neptune, but still not sure if I'll move forward with them.
    If I do, they won't combine.

    this is an awesome piece man!
    This isa true masterpiece of yours, by far the most complicated project u did to date.

    I love the color scheme that green fit the bot mode soperfectly, but for methe bedt part is the shell those hexagons are styrene i asume?
    How the hell did u cut them like that?

    Without a doubt it is, but I really enjoyed myself on this project.

    Yep, the whole shell is covered in styrene.
    I printed out a pattern on the styrene, each hex was hand cut.
    Although you can't really see it, there are 2 layers of hex's.
    27 per layer, for a total of 108 hex's on Halfshell.

    I'm sure you will find a way, bro. You always do. :sly2:
