    Hey fellas! Since this is my first large scaled Project, i thought it might be interesting to Show you the daily Progress and discuss some ideas and such.


    That being said, this guy started as MMC Backdraft. Was going to sell this guy, but hey, might as well make a custom out of it, right? The Shell is mostly going to be one of those upscaled Sky Garry KO's, hinges and such will either be made from scratch or salvaged from other junkers.

    Update for 17.09. (again, check my post for more pictures) :

    Almost there. Theres gonna be some details and makeovers, also i gotta find a pair of guns for him. After that i'll clean this guy up and give him a Paintjob. Last post for now since there obviously isn't alot of interest for it...

    May I suggest incorporating TR Alpha Trion. I don't have the MP Grapple, or Inferno, so I'm not totally positive that they will scale together but the leg, and arm transformation (sans lion kibble) should lend themselves to your build nicely.

    That's actually a good idea for the legs. I figured out how to use backdrafts arms already and will hopefully post that later, but the thighs might become useful, thanks for that one.

    Update for Today! Very productive day. The shoulders are mounted on hinges so they move away , quite welcome when operating such large shoulders!

    The filler Panel for the hole in altmode folds away into the Torso nicely

    UPDATE 23.06.
    Worked on the arms, they still are not finished , Keep in mind.

    19458379_376367172760475_561738125_n.jpg

    The back is still pretty much nothing, i'm planning on building thrusters which will transform into the back section (thats what the hole beyond the neck in altmode is for)

    Altmode is ... yeah, a weeb Robot doing yoga, but hey , thats kinda accurate , right?

    UPDATE 06.08.
    Added another leg and some vent details on the forearms. Just wanted to upload some pics so you can see where this is going, the feet are obviously going to be articulated too and the legs arent finished at all yet.
    Also, the midsection needs some serious folding - magic to hide the upper legs.

    HELLL yes! Those Sky Garry KOs only needed a little "well articulated skeleton" action to be definitive versions of the character...and now here we are.

    Looks like you might even be able to sneak some "Micromaster trailer carrying" action features in there...that would make him perfect!

    I've been thinking about the micromaster situation and the only mold i might be able to use would be Minimus Ambus from CW Ultra Magnus, so if anyone has a spare one and wants to part with that one hit me up.
    Also, just a small uppate.
    I broke both his thumbs because some glue got into the ball joints. Boy , be careful with KFC hands! To make up for that, i gave him some better wrist articulation by implating ball joints onto his wrists. This vastly improves his proportions too IMO:

    Almost there, hopefully the paintjob won't become a total desaster.
    Of course, adding some ankles will improve his poseability ^^

    Update for 17.09.:
    Building is almost done. Need some refining and cleaning up before i can get to the paintjob. Last update for now because I'm almost done and the general lack of interest in the progress... Enjoy anyways

    Nice work, too bad his name is one of the worst ever for a transformer. The feet seem a bit hollow but otherwise this is coming along nicely

    Wow! This looks great. I don't know much about the character, but I always liked his design. This is outstanding!

    He keeps telling Dave to call him "Sky Gareth" but he just won't listen.
