    wanted to try and make this guy a bit more G1 in appearance, mostly because of my lack of a good classics Meg's. it is an early work in progress but so far this is what i got planned..

    a new more G1 fusion cannon

    a new more G1 chest made from scratch

    some different feet to make him taller, he is almost as tall as Henkei Prime now

    [​IMG]

    here is a shot of him before the new chest with Henkei Prime

    like i said its a wip, hope you guys like it and if you have advice on ways to improve it let me know :thumb 

    UPDATE:
    completely different cannon that is even more g1. just need to do some sanding and refresh the paint a bit.

    You'll need to do a lot of sanding to get rid of the rough patches, but nice. I can't wait for the final results.

    Will it be able to transform?

    Cool! I think you're on to something. I don't like the shiny foil on the arms and the gun barrel. I think that's when you would need styrene if you can use it and then use silver paint.

    thanks for that guys, unfortunately he is non transform, the new chest prevents his head from folding down as the chest piece is attached in place.

    yeah the foil is just a placeholder until i can find some decent paint. does anyone know of some decent silver paint that would be useful for this?
