    hi folks...here are some new details of the belly section..

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    some makro detail of the texture:eek:

    [​IMG]

    in this point..the positive news ends.:confused:.....after glueing the belly parts to the torso ..the whole thing began to screw...it take 2 nights to become fully visible...wall1.....maybe THIS is a negative aspect of the cube system.there must be some weight on the parts when you glueing big area. after pasting the big pars together there must be some torsion forces appear....damnwall1wall1wall1

    [​IMG]

    what I ve gonna do with it?...any idea?....Ive released some force by cutting some cubes across....maybe it will e better after pasting the rounded parts above the hangars....maybe not....who knows....:confused:

    As a suggestion, try using foamcore board inside the larger parts. Fantastic build btw!

    today is one night from cutting the cubes in the torsion point..an it looks 20% better:oops:....i hope that th process will be continue..
