    EDIT 7/14:
    Just finished the 3D model for the Non-Titanmaster version! I probably won't print these models out myself as a non-Titanmaster version isn't my goal for this custom, but once I upload it to Cults, I hope others will purchase the set and print it out and show it off here. Anyway, here's the pics!

    EDIT: 7/11:
    All righty. The files are up for purchase on Cults! Because it was so much work and there are so many parts I AM charging for this. Hopefully that doesn't deter too many of you, but I think it's only fair.

    In the zip file for the parts, I did include a folder that has pictures explaining what needs to be retained from the original Scourge toy and what needs to be trimmed and customized. If you have any questions, let me know!

    EDIT 7/7: Here's the final assembly and fitting before paint! I had to reprint the fans because the original ones I'd made were about 20% bigger than the ones on her now and looked pretty ridiculous. 20210707_101824.jpg

    So here's a WIP of my Titans Return Nautica. For those of you who visit the Creative General Discussion forum, you've probably seen my posts in the 3D Printed Transformers Thread. Anyway, I finally got some more FEP for my Elegoo Mars and started printing out parts for Nautica

    I designed all the parts from scratch, including copying TR Windblade's Titanmaster body to use for Nautica's as well as the face

    I've also modified Scourge's parts to accommodate the new parts that I designed. Scourge's wings have been trimmed down quite a bit and Scourge's original shins will be trimmed down to allow for more articulation as well. The chest will be brand new, she'll have new fan/wings with spinning turbines and her Sonic Wrench

    This looks fantastic! Great choice for a base figure! Can't wait to see the other new parts.

    This is exciting! You nailed the Titans Return style, as your parts dont look out of place on the Scourge body in any way. I can't wait to see the final product!

    Looks great!!

    Are you going to release the files once you're done? I happen to have a spare/junker TR Scourge and would totally buy them.

    I'm already sold. I'm not certain when/if we'll ever get a new Nautica toy. And given these shapeways parts will probably be cheaper than buying the TR toy off the aftermarket, no reason for me to NOT go with the custom option. Especially after my first customs ever came out so well.

    That looks really terrific, especially the latest update. Very high-res too! Doesn't looks very rough, quite smooth. Well done!

    She looks fantastic! Even better than her official TR toy!

    If you plan on printing & selling the parts or just the STLs, let us know. I'm ready to buy. I've already got a spare TR Scourge standing by for Fronkensteen-ing.
