    Hey, I finished this back in August but I'm finally getting around to posting something here.

    I used TR Scourge as a base, swapped the arms for Highbrow's, talked theGlaug [theGreat] into upsizing his great Nautica head, and printed Trent Troop's wrench in metal. Plus I did quite a bit of shaving, reshaping, and adding bits to the TR parts. I also scratchbuilt the fans from some Mega Blok parts and styrene sheets.

    I'm still working on lighting and my camera so some of the colors are off. She's not quite so blueish.

    Check out the next post for alt mode pics and more.

    Thanks for looking!
    [And thanks to Glaug and Trent for the shapeways bits!]

    The pic below is probably closest to her actual color:

    Nice work man! Would've loved it if Hasbro did this, but either way, great work man!

    Love this! THIS is what Hasbro should have used as the basis for the figure.

    Hasbro, look at this. You see this? This is how to make Nautica. The Blurr mold was good, but this is perfection in its finest.

    One of these looks like Nautica. (Hint: it's not Hasbro's.)

    That is tight! Love it, and having her de-headmastered is icing on the cake!

    Whelp...we now see Hasbro picked the wrong mold for their release. Man that ALT mode is spot on. Great work here.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone! It was a labor of love

    So the vents are the non-cannon end of the leader Thundercracker or Skywarp leg guns. I cut off the part of Scourge’s wings that covers the hands and shaped and glued them together

    Can you (or @glaug and Trent) link to the appropriate Shapeways parts please? This is so spot-on that I need to make my own.

    edit:
    This appears to be the wrench, and while I've found Glaug's storefront I'm not sure which of the many options appears here.

    I've hated the Hasbro version as soon as they showed it off. That is not Nautica.

    THIS IS NAUTICA! Damn, I so wish I could buy this! Amazing job OP, this is amazing!
