    Thanks for the great compliments :D

    Got a little more to show. I eliminated the back treads that I designed in Shiryu due to inaccuracy. I completly re-designed them by hand and they are shown in the pics below.

    I've started on the head unit (Volt Cruiser) but haven't taken any shots as my camrea's batteries are dead and charging :p Also the hands will most likely be replaced. I can make new ones like the ones I've seen on free sites but they tend to be boxy. Voltes' hands like many Super Robots are rounded.

    Enjoy the pics, more to come :D

    Thanks Gents. :D

    The robot mode is nearing completion. I'm now down to the funky bits (hands and head). When I complete those it's laying out the parts sheets and getting them textured. I may try to get it set up for color paper printing. I've become quite the fan of that method ;)

    I really love what you did with the Volt Panzer's Tracks!!!

    The assembly looks so simple yet it pops just the right detail!!!

    Well Here's a pathetic update.

    I've got the hands done. I cheated on this part as they came from another model :p

    I also re-designed the lower legs but I won't need to replace them on the prototype.

    And finally I have the Volt Cruiser started. So it's only the main body section that mounts on the back. Alos note it's not complete yet as I still need to add intakes, fins, and the thruster assembly. Then it's the head and weapons.

    I took a shot of it next to my build of Rlc321's Alex Gundam built a 1/2 it's intended size :p

    It's getting there :D

    Hey V5,

    Thanks for the kind words :D though there is a price to pay for being such an hyper perfectionist :p If things start to go wrong they tend to get shelved and if you've seen my backlog of kits you'ld know what I mean.

    My biggest worry is I have more kits than I can possibly build in 2 lifetimes :( Oh and that was before I discovered paper models :p

    Well back on topic, not much more to go on Voltes' bot mode. I just waiting for that burst of inspiration to get hte head done :p

    Yeah Rob, where did the pic come from? They've re-done several series now like Jeeg, Gaiking, Gunbuster, and Getter Robo, so who knows? Maybe they are re-doing Voltes???

    Either way, fan art or revision it's a sweet pic :D

    Sorry Hans, haven't worked too much on it latley.

    I've been wraping up a little project I started before this one and also I've been working on the Voltron model by Voltron 5 in my spare time (which has been very little of late :( ).

    I have worked on a few parts though. The sword is nearly done. I also aquired permission from the designer of the hands to use them on my model :D

    I hope to get back at it soon.
