    Here is my latest project, the Lens Head Robot Type-B (Camouflage) by SF PaperCraft Gallery http://www7a.biglobe.ne.jp/~sf-papercraft/index.html
    After building the Charcoal version, I decided to build the entire series (not all at once though).
    I am starting with the legs.

    Lens-heads are on my "future build list" since I've seen them some years ago.
    Makino made neat models, some of the best Sci-fi related ones.
    I'll watch out for your progress (and some motivation to start building)

    Thank you all for the kind words and encouragement.
    For the most part, this is a fairly easy and quite enjoyable build.
    This is also a good model for detailing. There is quite a bit of printed texture that can easily be detailed (if one desires to do so.)
    This reason that I have not yet, is because, the first time I build a model, I like to build it just as it is (to see just how everything goes together and make a map in my head). Depending on how the build goes, I will (more then likely) build another one with the detail that I want in put in.

    I fully encourage anyone that this viewing this thread to build their own Lens head Robots.

    As you can see here, there are (about) 17 very small blades that you have to cut out and glue to the center piece. It is a pain in the A$$.

    Honestly, it's like every model you make is the archetypical build for that model. You are the one to follow!! :)
