    I decided it was time to tackle one of my favourite characters and certainly my favourite gestalt. I attempted it a few years back but was never happy with the outcome so ended up breaking him up and using all the bits for other projects. I tried incorporating too many other designs and lost sight of what I really wanted. This time it's different.

    Ladies and gents. Join me on a ride to create what I've always wanted. A proportionally perfect, fully articulated, 100% accurate 80's Menasor at MP scale. I don't care about individual bots, they will never look right with what I can do but I can make the big guy look the part I hope. Big shout out to Alpha Matrix who I've bounced off a few times and has helped me with the perfect feet. Buckle up and start the engines......

    lol cheers man, and with that I'm 90% there. Just waiting for some Tamiya masking tape to come to finish off Dead End with his racing stripes and I need to fit Wildrier (who is painted now).
