I hadn't thought of that. That would have saved on a lot of green stuff!
I've made a start on the lower half of the Riptide, copying Tearphoenix's conversion
, giving extra thrusters to the suits calves.
As promised I have been experimenting with posing, and have come up with this as a preliminary positionNothing too showy, but hopefully with more of a sense of speed.
Looking at it now, the larger-than-stock base does look a bit excessive, but I'm hoping that with the rest of the battlesuit, the base won't look too empty.
More next weekend...
