Truly deserving of the title "Masterpiece"
Ive done some weapons for him now. Heres a piccy update!
Digging the weapons.I love your Swoops.The only problem i see,isn't with Swoop.Grimlock looks plain now.Are you going to repaint him to match your style?Do you have any other dinobots planed?
I sold this Swoop sadley, Im going to miss it. I was making 2, so I will finish the other one now and give it a good old paint up. That one might be sold too, Im in talks with someone over it.
If thats the case, then Im going to build one just for me, and paint it. Then Im playing with the idea of making MP Slag. I have got some thoughts on parts I would like to use. Only a dream in progress at the mo though.
I have other customs lined up. Im doing a cheeky little Swoop. A bit like the G1 original but a nicer look and more articulation. Also would like to make an MP trailer for my MP Prime followed with a leg mod to MP Skywarp and repaint for a G1 accurate starscream. The an MP Shock wave is planned because I have a MP seeker and a G1 Shockwave to blend together to make a masterpiece. I got a larg ish army chopper dying to be reshelled/customed into a masterpiece figure a bit like Blackout style. These ideas might come before the Slag, but I havent really planned what to do next.
Damn,its like you went back for seconds and never finished your first plate.I think Slag and Snarl would be hard to do.I've got an idea for a Sludge base..like you said,pipe dream at this point.I look forward to any and all updates for any of your customs.
I wonna use some zoids parts for my ideas. I like zoids stuff so much, some part are really perfect for MP kitbashes.
I havent thought on Sludge, but I did see one done recently which looked quite good I though.
I want to try and keep the standard high on my next bash too, so its gonna be a long tough road to completing thiese projects I think. Sweat, tears and pain!
Here a picture of an P line up for scale. i didnt include my MP Prime because he isnt in a particulart good scale, so I will have to display him seperate. My plane is Shockware will fit in with this size of MP's Transformers
Dude, excellent update. Dino mode pics look badass.
Just for you I present dino mode scale pics along side Grinlock
Last night Ive been doing some more work on the other Swoop. Not long before a full repaint. i will post some update piccys later today.
Its been ages since Ive added to this thread, I could find it for ages........
The second nearly complete Swoop on the left side of photo...
There are some differences/variations as you can see to the other Swoop, but both work well I think. Still needs a paint job and some weapons making for him.
damn that's awesome.
I used Neo Shifters for the joints above the top of the legs (hip area) because they were asthetically pleasing, but coming to realise that they arent as good as "lego Knight Kingdon" joints. So Im hatching a plan which Im going to try and put into practise tonight and get the best out of both worlds. Seriously good joing and looks great too.
Fingers crossed! If I pull it off I will post some pics for difinate
My idea worked, here some pics. I will try to put a couple more of the process of piecing this together securely.......... Should be more solid than plain Neo Shifter joints now
Cant believe i havent done much work recently. Its been a struggle to get motivated really. Saying that, I have almost finished the second Swoop now. I will post some pics soon to keep you all up to date of the progress.....
I know I'm late to this party but hot damn that is some nice work. Keep it up!
Hey thanks very much. Sadley I cant keep them. Both are sold, but will have some pics up next week of the second one before it gets shipped off.
Means Im going to have to make another for myself. Back to the drawing board, lol. Hope to do a MP Slag to go with it too...
How do you do that!?!
How do I do what?
Heres a sneak peaky of the 2nd Swoop. I did him in a line up of MP figures to show how good the scale is....
