    Once Getter and I have ironed out the bugs (who am I kidding ;p, when Getter tells me what needs to be redone :)) and she has a few textures, and if you dont want instructions :p the plan is to put it up for down load.

    It will probably take a while, this really is the alpha build still. Designing is alot easier than building and I am still trying to get my head round how to design for card/paper.
    I can't say enough how good getter is at putting the mess of parts I sent to him into reality, he is doing a great job. I don't envy him the job of doing the hands :D.

    Hello All,

    It's been crazy these past few weeks but I have been working on this when I have time :(

    There have been a few parts revisions and I'm afraid there will be a few more before it's all done :p I have built most of the ship now so I taped the components together to take a few shots. Oh and yes, I know the pods are crooked but the mounts were buried too deep to care ATM :p Besides it's just taped together anyway.

    Battroid

    Hello All,

    It's been a bit again but I have been working on the VF2SS.

    Since the last post the arms have undergone a complete re-working as a few other sections. I have reported all problem areas to Janx and the final revisions are underway.

    Since I plan on doing the final assembly as Fighter mode I once agian have just taped everything together to show off the Battroid mode. Note there are some old parts on this pose as I've yet to recieve the final parts for a few areas but this gives you a good idea what is coming :D

    I have yet to build the hands and the legs are a tad high due to the leg posts being a bit short but that's a quick fix for Janx ;)

    I will try to get a Gerwalk shot but I can't promise how well it will go without gluing everything together. it's weight distribution may prove too much for the tape method :(

    Alas there's a light at the end o the tunnel..................... wait a minute.............. oh no, it's a train!!!

    Hope all enjoy the pics and cross the fingers for a Gerwalk shot.

    Thanks Sebret :D Devote some time and patience to this one ;)

    Well everyone I present Gerwalk mode. It was a pain to move it from my Model Desk to the Computer Desk. It fell apart twice and a few more times moving it back to the Model Desk :p Glued together it will be nice and solid but just taped together it's not :p

    I need to get off the lazy kick and do those hands now.

    Mr. Janx has produced a true masterpiece here :D

    Enjoy,

    What was the idea for hands? Solid boxes or actual articulation?

    Thanks Soaring :D Hope you get better soon :(

    Sebret the hands are individual boxes. I have the main part of one drying right now :p The fingers could be articulated if you wanted to split them and run a wire down them. I thought of doing that on this one but not sure since it will be in fighter mode when done and the hands are retracted in fighter configuration.

    So what's the point? Well as a test all things should be built no matter if they will be used or not. If this was a released build I would not bother with the hands for Fighter mode.

    I should have one of the hands done tonight at least :D May or may not articulate the fingers.

    Sebret,

    Abaslootly :p betas are invaluable. Sometimes I have to build even final products a couple times before getting it right :p

    I build the new parts as I get em. In the mean time I've been working on a new project myself (with Janx's help from time to time) while I wait for new stuff :p

    I'm going to be working on the new head later on this evening.
