    Here are new pics of Rikku ^^
    I must admit that i had some trouble with the Mini skirt, but in final it turned out not too bad (in my opinion ^^)

    had some difficulties linking the abdomen with the skirt but manage to make it look rather good ^^

    Here's the right hand and arm :

    and now attached to the body :

    Left hand and arm ready to assemble :

    And ready to be joined with the body :

    [​IMG]

    you can see that i had misglued the right hand at the wrong angle so i had to dettach it and reglue it in the right position ^^

    Now here where I am now, next part building the head and details for the hair (arrrgghhhhh :eek: ), the weapons and little details ^^

    [​IMG]

    So stay tuned for the finishing line !! ^^

    That model would raise my wife's eyebrows, but she would understand why I would want to build i! :)

    Would you mind telling me where you got the Cylon model on your Blog? It came out wonderful!

    It came from Ninjatoes, I don't have the exact link but if you can't find it there I can send the PDF files for the parts and the instructions (I also got the Viper MKII from there too). Just PM me if needed ^^

    O.K., I can find it. I think that is the nicest build I have seen of that model. Thanks! :)

    and it was made by a total beginner (with some of my help and correction ^^) but she mostly did the largest part, except the little details like the cannons ^^.

    Hmmmmm... today I discovered that while I was at work last evenning/night, an accident occurred implying my little Rikku and my magnifying glass I use sometimes for my modelings and the sun.
    What happens is that I left my unfinished Rikku standing on my table with the magnifying glass not too far from it. And, with a conjonctions of good conditions, the sunrays came through the glass and formed (i supposed) a good enough beam to heat and burn Rikku's left thumb....

    Here are the (horrible) pics :

    Well hat I can say is that I was somewhat lucky that it didn't spread anyfurther, not only on Rikku but also on the rest of my room....

    Let's reprint that left hand parts and meditate on those events........

    Hi there ! It's been a while since i've udated my building of Rikku, didn't time with work and private life (even though i did continue the building), so here it comes. It's almost finished, just have to make the weapons and redo the burned left hand.

    Let's start with the head joined on the body with just the main braid as added detail. I must admit it was quite a pain in the &@!#é to make, but in the end it didn't turned out so bad I guess....

    When looked at a certain angle, they kind of look like red chili peppers with a round handle lol....

    And now the last pics of this thread, the finished model with her wepons equipped. I didn't took too many pictures coz the previous ones gave an already goo looked of how it would look like.

    Excellent!! I don't know how I almost missed this. Excellent!! I like paper models of women. My wife looked at me a little funny when I started one. I asked her if she would be more comfortable with me making a guy? She still hasn't answered. I think she's jealous!! :)

    GREAT job on the model. She looks really good.

    I really do not know who the charector is, but she do look like she could pass as Laura Craft's little sister.

    Once again, GREAT job on the model.

    Thanks everybody ^^
    I've just started building Lightning and even if Rikku does look good for a first paperdoll like this, now that i've gained some experience i'll do this one with less apparent folds.
    I'll make a new thread with pics soon ^^
