    well got me some junker bot from ebay from a german seller
    and among the junk was this guy
    i have a soft spot for yellow ( and orange )
    i looked at him and thought such a pretty face attached to such a blocky body -LOL

    with the new botcon theme "g2" i decide to make some g2 bots .

    among the junk was a cybertron thundercracker (broken ofcourse )and my mind started racing .....

    so i need some advice from u people
    1.i want to add him his side fins and i cant decice which ones ?
    animated sc fins -2 options
    my repro needle nose rear fin
    jetstorm fins(the ugliest bot ever made )

    2. i cut of his leg guards(shins?) and i'm contemplating should i incorporate them into thundercracker's legs or should i just paint them to look like fearswoop color scheme ?

    I can't see all your pictures at work, so I can't help you decide, but I'm SUPER excited to see you working on this guy, I LOVE Euro G1.5/2!

    update

    its coming along quite as i wanted it :) 

    manged the new arms
    had to mold and cast thundercracker's arm joint ( that mold has only one arm and the other one its his stupid arm cannon) so fearswoop arms will have the same look.

    thundercracker's arms will fit in to the same place that fearswoop's arms fitted before . had lots of trouble with how to connect them there , but it was solved .


    managed to cut his head and put it on a ball joint ( has some clearence issues to arrange )

    in order to place thundercracker's legs with the original ball joint on fearswoop's main body - had to hand carve the angle to fit the ball joint .

    place cap for articulated fists/hands

    stil to do :
    find a solution for the back part how to conseal the gap that his original weapon covered .
    maybe a led in the cockpit , and plenty or air carried weapons on the wings .

    And as the 12 people voted on which fins to use - animated starscream!!!

    tnx for those who votted :) 

    cut the connector piece that connects the fin to ss legs ,and i need to cast another fin ( i have only one of those )


    as always C&C r wellcome

    keep it up, loved these figures when they came out (mostly due to the fact they were all that was to be got), the added articulation is very welcome.

    I'm watching this.
