    Ok, I have completed Voltron's toe, so I am moving on to the leg. But I have pictures of the stages every once in a while.

    [​IMG]
    As you said, that section needed to be thicker, and my A4 paper is an average thickness, and feels paltry after using 32lb paper. So what I did was use a glue stick and glue said sections to a piece of my thick paper. Once I glued the sections together, it became insanely thick, but it fufilled its purpose.

    After I glued the sections together.

    Side view, where you can guess at its thickness.

    The Bottom, everything didn't line up perfectly, but I made due.

    The front view of the completed toe.

    Side view of the toe.

    I also reinforced and weight-bearing areas on the model, mainly the bottom and back to prevent it from caving in at any point. This is very large, about 3 or 4 inches long, and aboutthe same tall. So, I'm already at work on the lower leg, so I hope to post my progress again soon.

    EDIT: Forgot to resize the pictures, but it's fixed now.

    hi Flame,
    good jobs. i think i was wrong on the nose, it should be black. and you need to glue some paper inside the face so it resemble the moustaches.
    also i finished making kit for the thigh, i ll send it to you.

    wait to see more.
    Kezn.

    @: for the hips i think if i wanna make it moveable, i need to divise the hips by 2 and add it directly to the thigh..

    I was wondering about the nose because it was a different color in the pdo than in the pdf, but I will work on the face some more, and in the meantime, I am done with the lower leg besides detailing, so pics will be here fairly quickly.

    EDIT: Lower leg is done minus detailing, and the toe is attached. I am working on the upper leg now, then detailing will follow. But here are pictures.

    [​IMG]
    Side view of the lower leg. It is very large, about half a foot by my guess.

    The foot of of this model is as big as my hand, and looks like the model will be enormous.

    And finally, a back view.

    Yes, I've got the right leg, and once I finish with the left, I'll start on the right, which should be soon.

    Sorry that it's been so long since an update, but I have had some problems. It started out with my printer causing problems, and then we had a lot going on, namely finals, cramming 3 weeks of school into 1 and a half weeks, etc... So I am still where I was at the last update, except teh seperate pieces are attached, so all that is remaining is the detailing. As for other bad news, I have a job this summer at a camp, and I will be gone for an entire month, so Voltron will be on hold until I return. I will, though, work on it as much as I can until I leave.
