Ultimate Blackout

Postby frenzy_rumble » Fri Feb 01, 2013 4:42 pm

This colossal Leader Scale Blackout stands a whopping 12 inches tall. He's a commissioned piece, part of a set w/ Scorponok. I started with a nice 1:48th scale CH-53E Model kit, and a bunch of random parts and figures, and LOTS of styrene. Most of his armor panels were either built by scratch and/or custom cut from "left-over" parts from the model. I used movie stills, game art, CGIs, and concept art for my inspiration. Blackout has articulation at his head (ball joint) ratcheting and swiveling upper arms/shoulders, elbows (with working hydraulics) ball jointed wrists, 2-point articulated fingers, ratcheting hips, 2 more ratcheting knee style breaks in his legs, swivel at upper and lower leg, swivel at ankle, and each foot is composed of 3 independently posable toes, keeping a firm flat stance in any pose. Blackout's custom build head has 2 bright LED lights which route to an easily accessible battery and on/off switch behind his right arm. Also built a "blade" weapon attachment that pops in to replace either hand.

Painted his robot bits in various shades of metals, golds, coppers...and his copter parts in a nice dull military navy blue-gray. Added lots of weathering details and rust effects.

Full (and there's lots) set of photos can be seen ;
