    Wrecker Guzzle WIP

    alright! so this is my new Wrecker Guzzle.

    hes A LOT smaller, and more to scale with the wreckers.

    i wanted to make this guy as perfect as can be and it has been SO frustrating trying to get the transformation worked out right.

    i am stuck at the moment trying to get his tread on the hands to slide down but not fall off and thats why i havnt posted this yet. i havnt worked on this for about a month and a half

    but hes made from dotm thunderhead and a bunch of random bits for joints and all that. plus styrene of course.

    the head is a placeholder.
    i plan on getting one from shapeways, then making the backback/turret and chest worked out from scratch

    that is looking really sharp. I've never been able to get styrene to bend like how you have it on the treads. Did you just heat it up?
