Sorry for posting again so soon, but this things been exciting to work on
Been working on this the last few days, tis been funny because the initial blues had some missing elements (and of course, elements I had to fudge), and as I'm finding better refs and figuring out how to make the stuff work, (pretty much had a general "um what IS that??. I'll figure it out later" policy) the blueprnts and refs and just about everything related have been scribbled all over with revisions and such XD
I figured today out how to get everything all bolted together to be sturdy, but hide everything so it'll look like in game instead of having the body be built from one big ol' block. Don't ask me where they fit the gun barrel in there, the more I get done on this keeps showng me more -n- more ways that Square CHEATED that transformation XD
Top photos are how it'll look assembled, save for painting. Stripped the paint off the blade, will redo. Bottom two are semi exploded views of the parts. The bolted on segment that connects to the blade (bottom pics) is my favorite part, but it won't be seen
kinda aiming to have most of the parts that were present in the screencaps, though it still won't actually be transformable because I lack MAGICCCCCCCk. theres also next to no room to put the internal gun part lol.
