    Ok, Working on a Computron and this is early pics of Strafe
    I'm pretty excited and one this guy is sanded and painted I think he will look great.

    Update, cut down the Missle Launchers added some magnets. They can be removed and uses as Guns. The Guns will combine to one gun.

    In Vehical mode added the Head Gaurd.

    Still lots of work, also have the other 4 Waiting in the wings.



    Thanks

    Now thats Strafe. I think the shoulder blaster or whatever are a little to big for it, but hey thats the only flaw I seen..maybe shorter them a bit. But all and all its pretty nice looking.

    Much better than the lazy re-paint we got. I do fear that the cannons are a bit big. Other than that, he's shaping up well!

    I started working on a Computron as well. The battlefield is a little heavy on the decepticon side and they needed more help on the autobots'. I love your interpretation so far and wished I saw this thread before I started mine. Regardless, looking forward to updated pictures of him. Keep up the good fight.

    I knew this mold would work for Strafe.

    A good way of reducing the length of those cannons is to make them removable through the use of the always useful Earth Magnets. Then the cannons can become his blasters in Bot mode. I did this for my scout class Strafe using very small magnets, but at this larger scale I believe you can find something at a hardware store that would suit you just fine.

    Otherwise, this is an interesting start to Technobot collection...poor Cyclonus got some serious Rhinoplasty...

    i like it, much better than the Henkei Strafe, are you going to add his forward wings? i think they might help making the launchers look a little smaller as well

    That's spify! I like it a lot. The only thing I'd change other that the guns, which you're changing, is I'd of kept part of the nose in plane mode, maybe? Just shortened it up instead of getting rid of it all together.

    That looks good, much better than just the straight repaint into Cyclonus that was a Japanese exclusive.
