Default Menchoy's Scratchbuilt MP Swoop

I knew I had to share this

Here's his thread & here's his gallery

I'd have to say it looks pretty much perfect!

Compared to his other MP Dinobots (who seem to have skinny thighs), Swoop has excellent proportions all round & looks bad-a#se!

I'm guessing he builds 2 of each MP Dino so that one of them is for him & the other goes on Ebay to recoup construction costs.

It's an amazing piece of work. But something just wasn't sitting right with me.

First off was the stomach how it angles in ... a lot. Depending on the angle it almost looks like there's no stomach area at the time.

But I realised what was really making it look odd to me was the use of the Gundam limbs, they're nice and rounded, but his scratch built parts are straight and sharp, doesn't quite blend together.

As I said though, it's an amazing piece of work and far superior to anything I could even attempt to kitbash out.

Very nice, my guess would be he builds the first one and then irons out any problems and builds the second one.
