    Default Siege Thunderclash

    I don't have a Thunderclash so I decided to make one, originally imagined to have a cab that collapsed into his chest, I decided to leave it fixed in the end not because I couldn't do it but I wanted the build to progress. The figure gained more height using this mod from the radicons board.

    Just got to figure what I want to do about his head.

    It's mostly styrene card, gunpla parts and brass wire which is really flexible but can be a hassle to work with. I'm taking some inspiration from Japanese art trucks or dekotora. The Autobrand is from a construct-bot set.

    I finished the build today, going to leave it for a bit before giving it a wash ready for priming. I opted for modding the stock Ironhide head, still looks like Ironhide hopefully priming him will fix that.

    BTW I discovered that the head isn't seated properly in the ball socket, I carved some plastic away from the hole at the base of the head and pushed the head back until I heard a loud click, the head can now look down and you can transform him without turning the head to the side.

    Added some greebling to the cab roof and tried to make it look a bit like a spoiler, an attempt at a homage to the old Botcon figure.
