    Here's a little somethin' I've been workin on lately to break up the routine a bit, the Rockin-Ravage! Totally scratch-built & based on G1-Ravage, this was an idea pitched to me by a FB-friend a couple years ago that never materialized. The initial-idea was to build a life-sized version of this for his friend's kid that was on the way, but time was short & it never materialized..... Well, I revisited the build on a miniature-scale for all practicality & was very pleased with his outcome.....And best of all, he really rocks! (Demo-video below pics) :D  Dimensions are 10" long at base, around 6" tall and totally scratch-built from wood, styrene & plastic-tubing & caps. Logos & paint to be added later-on, but this lil kitty is pretty much almost done.

    That's a delightful idea! Very outside-the-box too.

    Update on Rockin' Ravage, now in the painting-stage & comin' along nicely! :p  You will be able to actually put figures on his back, so I made the missiles magnetically-attachable & can either pivot out of the way or removable altogether. :cool:

    Thanks for the feedback guys! I went through quite a few color-schemes in Paintshop before I was happy with the rocker-arches & saddle, but this is roughly what he's lookin like. The saddle will be a darker-grey, with a thin-chrome border around the edge to match his missiles. :D
