I’ve finished most of the major modifications for the backpack and knees. I built a shield using WHIPS and the clear green beam extension effects. The shield mounts on the backpack (either mode) and either shoulders (MS mode). I’ve also slightly modified the groin joints to enable the legs to angle closer together on insect mode.
The modifications were done to makes the Scorchion transformable, from MS mode to Insect mode (and vice-versa), similar to that of the Wing.
Just the armor detailing is left and probably a few minor modifications, and this will be ready to paint.
