Maybe a stupid question, but what is the V19 torrent? I don't think I've seen this, if I have I can't place the name.

Only the coolest star fighter in the Clone Wars, or ever...



Here's a link to the Star Wars Databank entry.

If I remember right, in the FFUG board, some one made one of the Torrents.  It was pretty sweet.  I'm still looking for a good Ref Pic of the V wing pilot...the one that was made over at FFUG wasn't quite what I was looking for...didn't have the same feel to the one in the cross section book.

Thanks

That would be me I started a torrent but never finished I did a cardboard mock up but I just don't work well with styrene. Then someone else took up the mantle with getting a Sharc from gi joe and he started making it but never finished, i may go back and revisit it.

That was one hot looking vehicle Smarty...you really should go back to that.  That's one thing the Hasbro needs to make...though we know they won't.

Sorry to highjack you thread Dre, but which version of the Torrent do you think looks better, the one for CW cartoon or the one from the behind the scene drawing? I might give this starfighter a shot, but want to know what others thing is better looking.

Man, how did I miss this Kal Skirata custom?!  It looks great - you've matched the reference pic very well. 

Atin is looking good so far, what knee joints did you use?  Are they the 500th Vader knees?  The combination of parts looks very clean, nice job there.
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

Yep -- I'm the other one working on the project -- still sitting in this unfinished state -- I need to buy PVC tubing for the wing pivots and I've been too lazy to go shopping for it... so here it sits...




I was just looking at this a few days ago saying I needed to get back to it.

I even told you how to assemble the engines so the wings rotated, how could you still be not done we started this last summer. :( I gave up, but you had a solid start get back to work. >:(

Anyway I never commented on Atin

He looks great, Are his shins gonna get painted? and DD nice job on articulating him for Dre.

Roron-I'm a fan of the Clone Wars version actually...I love those 'toons ;D

Glassman-Thanks for the compliment...I couldn't have done it without you though!!

Gregorbian-Thanks for the compliment on Kal.  He was simple, yet a very effective figure.  The knee joints are from the 500th Vader.  I didn't do the articulation, Darth Delicous did it for me, he's a braver man than I.

tykrazen-That's an awesome start on the Torrent...you should finish that puppy.

Smartypants-His shins aren't painted yet...I like to procrastinate...I've been side tracked by a coupla figures I'm doing for a Fan Fic story about my Arc squad I made.

Thanks for all the comments guys...there will be more to come!!

Here are a couple of filler customs that have taken my time away from Atin.

First up is the start of Lt Colm.  He's an Arc in my Theta squad.  He's one of the main characters in a fan fic I'm writing.  He's still in rough shape so be kind.





Here is a Luke that is a kit-bash from a couple of the power of the jedi line Lukes






So those are the reasons Atin isn't finished yet.

Questions, gripes, comments...let me have them...

Lookin' good!  I like the ARC a lot, but I would suggest to clean up that chest logo, maybe paint it again to get a better color coat, and to take off the pre-applied weathering, that will make it even better.

The Clone is looking pretty good... I'd work on the chest logo some too (or even remove it, as white still looks good?).

I love that Luke by the way, I made the exact same custom a while back.  Good work!
