    Just a proof of concept post. if i go through with this custom ill need a new Highbrow Windblade AND Scourge as on the road to this prototype i ruined a lot of parts I WOULD have used.

    Everything here is very rough and not held together

    cockpit position, forward or back?

    i can't decide which arms i want to use, Scourge or Highbrows?

    proof2.jpg
    So I thought, the legs were the same height and using Windblade's inner legs and Scourges outer ones gives them a bit more of a feminine feel while also achieving that armor layerd look Hautica's legs have. Granted they are full of gaps, but holes would get filled in. Pictures make it look worse than they are.

    Full Scourge legs or half Windblade half Scourge?

    what do you guys think?

    I'd say Highbrow. Not sure how it matches up with the comic design, but it definitely looks better.

    I like the scourge arms better because they look more feminine and but ya the highbrow arms may look more comic book accurate.

    does it have to be perfect? i have one headless and disassembled (i wanted the black parts for Sweep agent 747, but isn't going anywhere) and the ?necklace- (the part on the torso painted blue and red, casted in transparant yellow) -broke, but i was going to remedy it with lazerbond (works as an added transparant plastic, like adding visors to nonvisor heads)

    been waiting for weather, but if you want it, i won't say no.

    i mostly need all of her red parts, the the front of the torso i have in fine, my main concern it her cockpit and lower legs but anything in cast in red plastic is what i'm after. PM me some pics of what you have left of her? any stressing on places where you removed pins if you even bothered? cracks? stuff like that.

    im using the windblade (and scourge and highbrow) i have as trial and error because im not actually sure what im doing yet, so i want nice fresh parts to work with for the final custom. so long as everything is in good shape ill take em

    I'll take any of your Windblade heads if not in use.
    Additionally, I have an extra Scourge if you need another.
    PM me!

    thank but i've got a new scourge and Highbrow on the way already. and the windblade head i DO have, im trying to figure out how to get it onto the Legends windblade (original one) i already have, its SUCH a better sculpt than the one that came with. ideally ill commission a shapeways person to model one for me, kinda surprised its not been done yet actually.

    Highbrow arms and half/half legs will look best in robot mode i think. How do the half/half legs look in alt mode?

    It's a really good looking concept. Much better than the Blurr mold release, though I was happy to see an official Nautica either way.

    Half and half legs look fine in alt mode seeing as they end up underneath. You don't notice it unless ur looking

    Edit: i lied, hold on im gona take a picture of it cuz im not sure myself now.

    altmode with windblade half legs

    not really all that noticeable and once i get through with filling the gaps between the two parts it will be even less noticeable.

    also i moved the cockpit back a little. ill be able to attach it MUCH easier pushed back like this but i dunno if i like it so far back. what do you guys think?
