Hi guys, I just want to show off my custom work, which I've been planning for a week now. I am really proud of my custom, despite of all its flaws. I really didn't think I will be able to make it this far, as I have no experience in painting, kitbashing, customizing or what have you. By the way, this is still a WIP. I still need to "sandpaper" this baby, more so, this custom badly needs a paint job ASAP. I also intended to improve the articulation of his thighs. Now on to the materials used: - Incomplete Armada Starscream (without the 2 wings, minicon and missiles) - Complete KO Armada Starscream - Junker TFU 2.0 Dirge (without the crotch and thigh part, as it was used in my custom Armada Starscream's improved thigh articulation) - Super glue Hand tools used: - Hand saw - Philips screwdriver - used in removing some screws... duh - 1 precision screwdriver (minus head) - used in holding stuff which my fingers can't cause the gap is so small - Sandpaper (120) - used in smoothening rough parts... duh - A pair of scissors - cutting excess plastic from sawed off areas Procedure: For the procedure in making this custom, I will not use too many words, so it will not be demotivating to read. I'll use the "milestone" approach: - Cut the wings area from TFU 2.0 Dirge's arms using a hand saw, and "sandpapered" the rough parts produced by the sawing. - Removed the cannons of Armada Starscream by removing a screw using a Philips screwdriver. - Sawed the air intake/thrusters of the Armada Starscream, and "sandpapered" the rough parts produced by the sawing. - Sawed off some of the back parts of Armada Starscream (near the minicon port), to accomodate the wings part from TFU 2.0 Dirge. - Applied super glue to the sawed part at the back and the TFU 2.0 Dirge's - Connected the KO Armada Starscream's 2 wings - And lastly, enjoy playing with it after the super glue dried! hehehehe Now the pics: Here are some robot mode pics: As I mentioned earlier, I also want to improve the thigh articulation of this toy, so I will be scouting some ball joints or use another TFU 2.0 Dirge to do what my friend initially did to my first Armada Starscream's thigh. Any comments and criticisms are most welcomed! Same goes with tips/advice/secrets, especially regarding painting. I need them for my next custom work... RID Prowl reshell using Lamborghini Gallardo! Will update ASAP. Thanks for viewing! Until next time! Cheers!
