    Hello All,

    I finished building this a while ago but never got around to shooting good pics in daylight.

    I've done several tweaks and enhancements on the kit.

    A big thanks to Rob for deisgning such a fantastic model.

    Hope everyone enjoys the pics as much as I enjoyed building it :D

    Here's the other pics. The last one is the Alex next to my Prototype Voltes V.

    I built the Alex a 1/2 it's intended size.

    Well lets see,

    I replaced all the thrusters

    Enhanced the chest vents by making individual loovers

    Sharpened the antenna and crotch chevron

    Assembled the Beam Saber hilts inside out to hide the lines (they were rolled round instead of doing the fold lines)

    Assembled the upper body's front vent thrusters concave and installed them recesed into the body instead of protruding outward like the stock kit does.

    Re-worked the cockpit hatch

    Re-worked the lower leg thruster pods

    Re-worked the ankle armor minus molds

    I think that's all.

    Overall it's a great kit, I'm just a hopeless perfectionist that can't seem to build anything anymore without modifications :p
