    Don't get me wrong love Phoenix but I hate the head. To me it doesn't look like Skyfire and since it looks like FT isn't going to release additional heads with TG I decided to make my own.

    Few hours in modeling a few days 3D printing out prototypes and I'm just about done. A little sanding and painting to this version and it should be good to go.

    Painted the prototype and it eh looks alright. Kinda sloppy with paint. At least the eyes were 3D printed so they were clear.

    Cause the eyes turned out pretty nicely I pretty much went all in and decided to print the face and the crests in the correct colours to see how it'd look. A little gappy as I need to fine tune the tolerances but I like.
