    So here's whats new. This is the fourth attempt at turning his under hood into his wings so as not to "parts-form". (Thanks to Methusalen for suggesting it) It has been a rough week. everything Ive tried, failed miserably and many a mini-con lost his balljoints but Eureka! I think Ive got it. If this passes the stability test, I will have him finished by the end of the week!

    Oh and I have a really cool idea for his actual spoiler! Stay tuned kiddies!!

    Ah, stability tests. I know how annoying it is to think you've got a system worked out, and then realsie it's not secure or strong enough to do everything it needs to.

    Looks like you've got a really cool setup worked out there, though.

    That's idea, guys! I was disappointed that I hat to have a bit of a parts former, but yours looks alike a brilliant solution. Looking forward to seeing it finished.
