    I wanted to make a stand in masterpiece scale Cosmos until I eventually get one for my collection. So I did some digging through my spare parts looking for similar shapes to the rather round character.
    Then sketched out how I thought I could make the articulation work with what I had available (unfortunately what you imagine it's going to come out like doesn't always pan out)
    Here is what an afternoon got me after wasting about 2 hours of it trying to achieve outward arm movement and realising it was never going to work I settled for what I knew I could pull off. The pic in the middle is the aftermath of the carnage I still have to clear up in my shed.....
    First pics next to Sideswipe he was ok for a short squatty Cosmos with bugger all leg movement so added an extra length also given more movement options which are the lower pics next to Huffer an Warpath. 20200507_141950.jpg 20200507_140859.jpg 20200507_140908.jpg 20200507_172835.jpg 20200507_172843.jpg 20200507_172933.jpg 20200507_173351.jpg 20200507_200351.jpg 20200507_200516.jpg 20200507_201537.jpg

    Tonight's progress still not sure how to tackle filling out the legs without losing the articulation I've created, probably go about it similar to what I did with Broadside.
    So he now has heel spurs as kept rocking backwards, added extra strength on the upper legs and slipped in a rubber washer between the nuts and bolts for tension then glued the thread to keep them from undoing.
    Trimmed the claw hands down a bit and worked on the shapes that make the character what he is. 20200508_232936.jpg 20200508_232950.jpg 20200508_233002.jpg 20200509_005333.jpg 20200509_005358.jpg 20200509_005415.jpg 20200509_005704.jpg

    A bit more progress filling out the legs but trying to maintain the articulation, been a bit distracted recently with another project trying something out but not sure if it's going to work what I'm trying to pull off but that is for another thread another time 20200514_014832.jpg 20200514_014820.jpg 20200514_014813.jpg 20200514_014913.jpg 20200514_014803.jpg

    Didn't get much done tonight as I've been concentrating on Beachcomber, but did manage to build up the shape of the back of his upper and lower arms with hot glue 20200520_013606.jpg 20200520_013616.jpg 20200520_013628.jpg

    Thanks I think I better melt the face area a bit with the soldering iron to get the putty to stick to it for the face sculpt that that will probably be last. I dont know what to concentrate on next trying to finish the legs or start on some of his details.

    Got the legs finished off last night and managed to keep the articulation I wanted then worked on his details. Hopefully tonight I will work on his face sculpt and round off his shoulders and arms with the putty 20200526_010559.jpg 20200526_010540.jpg 20200526_010513.jpg 20200526_010439.jpg 20200526_010630.jpg

    Hes getting there mate, hoping to get him finished this week. If i can get the face sculpt and arms/shoulders done tonight, then sand down the putty tommorow, then spread the painting over a couple of evenings trying to concentrate on him instead of beachcomber otherwise get very little done to each.

    Don't if I should give him wrist blasters? Originally I was going to just add them as his hands/guns them I realised I had spare Megatron arms from Rack and Ruin to give him all the articulation with a bit of trimming to the fingers.

    A few different methods used below could make it work underneath the hands like toyworld/zeta but would look better on the sides of the hands big barrel starting by the forefinger descending down to smaller Screenshot_20200526-203026_Samsung Internet.jpg Screenshot_20200526-202227_eBay.jpg Screenshot_20200526-202958_Samsung Internet.jpg Screenshot_20200526-202943_Samsung Internet.jpg Screenshot_20200526-202928_Samsung Internet.jpg Screenshot_20200526-202816_Gallery.jpg
