    I've been using Autocad for awhile to do my customs. It only lets me do 2D. It's just kind of hard to get things perfect in a 2D representation of something that's gonna be 3D sometimes . . .

    [That being said] this thread [depicts] an official scratch built [War Within Shockwave]. Here is a shot of my old War Within Shockwave that I made using Autocad a few years back.

    Sorry guys, I wasn't aware how heavily this thread got edited. I wasn't meaning to bring back an old custom or anything. I originally asked a question about drawing programs to aid in the design process, but I guess that broke some rules or something? Anyway, thanks for the kind comments!

    We took care of it :)  If you could attach your images to the first post of this thread, that would rock just about as much as this custom :) 

    Your discussion thread is in Radicons General Discussion now :)

    I believe instead of posting pics that are already on TFW2005, I'll instead post some images of my version 2 tomorrow....the one that I'm sending to CyberFembot to see if the owner there wants to cast and sell it!!!

    Sorry for the wait. I got some not so fun news about a medical test I had done. But I finally got the pictures taken. Hope you guys enjoy them. I personally love the shot of the purple tank mode version 1 getting ready to blast the robot mode white version 2. Please see my notes about them below if you notice some things that are messed up:

    1.) The white one is the one I'm sending CyberFembot
    2.) Both have flaws, but the white one is version 2
    3.) They both have flaws b/c I tried new things with version 2, some worked out, some didn't
    4.) The legs on Version 2 should be attached lower on the hips like the version one, I just made a mistake with the drill
    5.) I left spikes off the top of one of the front tread housings just to see how it looked. I like the spiked version better personally.
    4.) I left a few decals off the Version 2, again to see the difference that decals make.
    5.) The version 2 has better joints (tighter) in general
    6.) Version 2's arm cannon ends are attached with different (better) joints that do not require a true locking mechanism, but I forgot to account for the increase in height off the arms, thus the cannon ends don't meet in tank mode like on Version 1, it would be corrected in a final product for sure
    7.) I changed the left arm blaster slightly. I think I like version 1 better even though the version 2 is closer to the prototype image in the comic.
    8.) Anyone else think the robot mode kinda resembles the SDF 1 in an odd way b/c of the way the front treads stick up in the back??? :D 
    9.) The reason the orange tool is under the Version 1 is that I didn't re-enforce the front tread connections (version 2 I did), so they grew loose over time and no longer hold up the tank. The version 2 is great in that respect though. Not loose at all and it's been put through numerous transformations, so I'm pretty sure that's fixed.
