    Because there's just not enough Nauticas to party with :D 

    Still Wip, currently look something to cover that cockpit gap in alt mode(and still looks okay as a buttflap in bot mode), but overall the transformation is there, maybe some readjusting needed to lower that front tip of the alt mode, some putties to allow shinki/figma hands. And finally painting.

    As with my other shinki-related customs, the head has to be removed for transformation because they're just too big :p

    You know looking at the alt mode Titanium Scourge would be a good base and would be easy to fit a new robot inside. Only downside is the cape backpack thingy in bot mode. This is looking promising though, keep up the good work!

    Thanks for the comments! :) 

    As for the parts:
    Arms/feet from Drift, TFP Vehicon for the legs, movie Laserbeak for wings and TFP arcee for the chest bits, with a couple of gundam parts for backpack joints.
    Didn't use any Scourge because I don't own one ;)  I usually plan my customs using what I already have (and got bored of, obviously:D ).

    Lol, I noticed too, her head's gonna be a tad big :eek:  But just imagine this as Nautica, Sarah Stone style, i guess? :p

    This is probably the most comic acurate Nautica I've seen as far as transformation scheme. The chest/cockpit in particular is very clever. This already looks good, and its going to look great when it's finished and painted.

    Oh, man. First Windblade, now Nautica...??

    The overwhelming feeling of Me Not Owning These is becoming too much to bear...

    I love the use of Drift parts here, they work really well!
