    Hello all,:thumb:
    This is another great model from XenonRay.
    Garrus. After Tali he´s my favourite character.
    I have started with head and legs.

    You are the "seam master". I can never see the seams on you models. Looks great so far, and I imagine it will to the end! :)

    Thanks so much for building my templates!

    I often wonder how many people actually build them (and how many of those have pics online) so it was great to see your threads on here!

    This is turning out to be a very nice and clean build.

    I learned not to expect nothing less from dadavejdr.
    Great work on the previous figures and of course this one too :)

    I agree with Lehcyfer, it seems to be that way now for a few members. It makes reading these posts much fun! :)

    I hate to sound like an addition to your fan club- but they are right. This is looking like a very clean and crisp build. Almost- inhuman. :p

    Another progress. The body is almost finished. Garrus is bigger than I expected.

    He certainly is more top heavy than everyone else! I was surprised too since its harder to see just how big his collar armour is in game unless he stands fully upright (like the model rip).

    Well, after a loooong time (lot of things to do because of school) I have finished (almost) the body. The lower part was extremely tricky :curse: but it looks fine :cool:
    The main print wasn't the best one, so I must get the lacquer on it, but it was stupid idea get the lacquer before gluing together - it gave me a lot of troubles wall1 because the lacquer is scrubing away wall1
    Now let's start with hands....

    Your work is so awesome! I know I',m repeating myself, but these figures really take a lot of skill and a good eye to come out, especially this good. When they're bad, they are really bad, then there's O.K.. This is incredible though! :)

    Thanks:oops:
    Little more progress on arms.
    I have a question for the XenonRay. Can you please send me some pictures of the visor attachment? I really don't know where to put it :confused:
    Thanks
