    Pouching? Means.....?

    Anyways, just a tiny update. I lengthened the cylinder, readjusted the tabs to be LARGER! Easy models call for all the help you can get.

    ...just a thought, many of us actually don't cut tabs to their given shape... So it doesn't really matter that much ^^

    :thumb:Soaring here with another teensy weensy update. I lengthened the cylinder, and built the first joint. Now I have to mirror it to the other side and WOOSH! Oh yeah, there are some pictures showing the side to side motion

    The next pice, to hold the joint by the front and back, may take a while...

    No, it went together quite easy I just haven't had much time today. I'm taking a break now, but I'm looking forward to seeing you finish this. When you get it finished I'll try to make time to do that styrene tut.:thumb:

    Just a tiny Context Update, I didn't get much done yesterday, since I was modeling the Cromwell Tank. For sure, I'll finish the foot today.

    Hehehe, I lied about the family bit, however my CST's are seriously coming up, and I only have 6 days to study for them. I'm trying to reach 530 :(

    Anyways, if anyone wanted to know what occupied my time....Take a look at the pictures! Only one word: ARMOR.
    Trust me, to make a transition from a regular cardmodelist who builds robots to an armor kit is difficult. The instructions are "Wierder" the parts are really, REALLY small, but the kits look so beautiful. I thinkm I fell in love after seeing Toddlea's cromwell :)

    As for updates, I seriously need my beta builders for this foot portion.
    Currently, I have no more ink :( My Birthday's coming up, so I can replace it then, but I gotta see where this stands! Literally! So Beta Builders, Please constantly check your PM's for any files being passed. Probably tonight I'll send 4 files...

    Anyways, the beta builders will have to test out the foot, which I kind of modeled quickly, the joints and...yeah! Yes, Everything has been modeled, I just need to texture the red bit of the foot.

    Before I end my little misorganized paragraph, I would like to thank
    CJTK1701 and Palmer for participating in the builds, sorry to ask again, but do you think you guys can do another 4 files? :D

    So, this is my testbuild of the first part of the leg...
    Pieces aren't glued togheter yet.

    Judging from theese pieces, the model seems well done,
    just I think the textures need more definition to made the lines sharper.
    (I printed it 2pages in a sheet and are still too 'smooth' for my taste)

    Nice work Soaring! I really hope you'll finish this model!
    As soon as I build the 2nd release, I'll post pics...
