    Update

    Sorry I've not updated this sooner but I was away all last week and my girlfriend has not been well this week so I've been looking after her.

    I love Don Figueroa menasor in the transformer ongoing series, especially the design of the thighs so I've used this for reference for my own design. I've also added swivel joints just above the knees and I'm bulking the thighs out so that they fit in better with the size of his chest.

    I've added some pics of my side project which I do when I'm waiting for modelling putty to dry. He's my first reshell project and is turning out quite well. I've still got quite a lot of work to do on him like filling in all the gaps, sculpt his head lights and finish off the rest of his body work.

    I've got a 3rd project thats on the drawing board i'll show some pics soon. All I'm going to say is that I've been reading a lot about the wreckers....

    update

    I've put up a sketch of my up and coming 3rd project. Hes going to be a mp version of topspin and it will be my first scratch build. I should have the materials to start him at the end of the week.

    Here's the pics of his back. I wanted to try something different rather than going down the same route as frenzy rumble.

    i really love this build, but it's not "less parts-forming"

    this is 8 extra parts, compared to 6 extra in past builds (which i'm assuming you're referring to)

    still, this Menasor looks awesome. I'm a big fan already

    this is looking really promising. I actually like it when the shoulders to the elbows are more car-like rather than obvious attachments to an already existing arm. good work my man!
    thanks for sharing!

    I love and totally respect the fact that you're making the entire arms out of the characters. Definitely sells it more for me.

    This guy is looking great so far. I anticipate the awesomeness of the finished product. :)

    Yeah there are a lot more extra parts on him which I'm hopefully going to be hiding in a trailer, not too sure yet.

    thanks for your comments they are appreciated

    This is a tasty take on Menasor, and some wonderful work on the styrene area!

    Chest shield is a neat idea, though I'm not a fan of the rabbit ears as they are.
