    OK. This fella here is being made so that people can simply make their own versions of Don Figureoa's Stormbringer Thunderwing.

    This is not meant for the 3rd Super Mode but more as a way to be able to have your own Thunderwing without having to wait for Hasbro to get off their Bums and make a official one.

    Still a WIP, I know what still needs to be sculpted, and I have a bit to go on it but I have some sample pics of of how it's turnning out. It should be finnished by tonight and I should start making the mold for the peices tomarrow.

    Kit will contain 3 head peices(Back,front,and face) a neck peice, and the Chest peice.

    I'm making this for me in the end but I am considering selling a few at the rpice range of $25-35 depending on how much a b*tch it is to hand cast.

    It is actually made for the smaller version of Megatron (SL Galvatron) that came in the two pack durring Energon's release.(The one with the PL Deluxe Prime)

    For my copy i'm ganna try to cast the face and Back of the head peices in clear orange Resin so I can do the face's light effects. Anyone that ends up Wanting a Copy will prob have it all casted white and needs to be painted.

    Anyhoo, Just wanting to show it around on how far along it is already.

    Enjoy!

    And here is a Digibash version By Gryph of the Progress so far so you get an idea of how it might lok in the end. Some details in the finnished peices will be smoothed out and will not show up in the mold.(Such as the Head vents)

    And yes...I know I still have 4 more ribs to go.

    Enjoy.

    Allright. Quick update.

    The main chest peice and head parts have had molds made and test parts casted.

    If anyone wants one for themselves it's $25 for the set and $5 extra for the clear head instead of a regular one you have to paint. Just pm me for details.

    And check it out!!! You won't even have to paint the rest of the figure (Outside of the it) for it to look like thunderwing. (I'm ganna paint mine though...)

    As you can tell the wings and cockpit have ben altered but is not part of the set. just th chest and head and neck peices.

    Enjoy.

    Really like it. I have this mold but I was going to use it to make galvatron. Now I have to reconsider.

    yep thats the perfect mold for that guy. hasbro looks good but it should have been bigger than a deluxe scale.
