    Hey soaring! Don't worry, you're not the only one struggling to stay with just ONE model! :p
    My study is starting to look like an assembly line!

    Whew! Sorry it's been a few weeks! I was stuck on stuff...Hopefully, by the end of this week, I'll start on EX-S's waist, and get to Strike Noir's chest. As well, I hope to start the 2nd shield of Hazel

    Thanks Rob ^^

    Alright, so it's been awhile folks, but time to start up again! I have a scienc project to do though...Oh well ^^ I just have to test it ^^

    Anyways, after I finish my shower, Which will be like in 10 minutes, I'll start up on Hazel Gundam! Hopefully, I'll build this guy and finish in two weeks....Keep on the watch, because I'll include some Tips/ Tricks/ Everything in between for Hazel, since there are no instructions for him ^^

    Hazel~

    Alright, here's the progress so far. On the mirror leg, I'll show instructions ^_^ So keep on watch!

    Oh yeah, I used the pepakura model for this, instead of the JPEG.
    If you want the model to have decals, use the JPEG
    If you're a person like me and prefers Clear prints, use the pdo file.

    Percentage of builds:

    EX-S = 45 %
    TR-1 Hazel - 49 %
    Strike Noir = 11 %

    -----
    Scratch build projects:
    Zeta: Planning stage, Idle
    RX-79: Template phase, On hold

    Timelines to keep:

    Hopefully, by Maybe at the Earliest, Friday, I'll be at 50 % with Hazel. If not, then on Saturday. Over the weeks vacation, I'll continuse with Hazel and see how far I'll get. I wanna say...Feb. 25 finished model...

    As for EX-S *Low whistle*
    I'll continue that this March

    Strike Noir, I'm learning alot from this model, especially the joints, but I'm keeping it on hold for a few... ^_^

    *Keep your eyes peeled for Hazel Joints o_O*

    Hazel Proto Joint 1

    Hazel Test joints:

    Well, this is preeeeety Simple, easy to do. If you have time, you should try it with those static models o_O

    -Cut a sizable square from your A4 paper or Cardstock, preferably cardstock. Score lines, leaving an equal interval

    -Fold lines
    -Attempt to create a round cylinder
    -Glue the ends
    -Paste them onto the location where the joint bends.

    Eh, I don't think anyone got me there ^_^ But Oh well, this is only a prototype implanted joint.
    I'm going to test the joint added with the thing that seperates the leg and shin... Possibly, I want to have three points of articulation in this Section ^.^

    ------If you have no idea what I was talking about, just examine the pictures ^.^----

    Soaring, you're building these lightning-speed...... BTW do you plan to give it a paint job after finish? Or do you prefer to leave it as it is?

    Lightning speed? Either Lightning speed has gotten slower, or, I'm just a slow slug ^.^

    Lemme guess, do the lines bother anyone? The white ones?
    I want to paint over them, but I fear I will not be able to...

    Hey buddy. Am I right in saying there aren't any joints as part of this model, that you are in fact modifying the model to get movement??

    One word, OUTSTANDING!!!! Well done buddy for taking a kit a little bit further. ;)
