Nice legs you have mica :cool:


. still funny to see the red shoe
True, these are the best legs I've done in a while...
Now on with the left leg.

Can you spot the missing piece?

I guess it wasn't that critical after all... I may add a little "Battle damage" to the area with the missing piece to "hide" it.

Build update time, image heavy. Finishing the outer plates on the Right leg, all details added so far are done with my Micron 01, .25mm art pen.

Next I am going to apply the decal markings to this leg assembly, it will be easier than waiting till it's all assembled.
Nice leg!

My older brother suffered an episode in Mississippi and it was either let him move in with me, or have him institutionalized. So I had to give up my hobby room and move him in. Because of that I have had to move my hobby work space.

not as much area as I had before, but I'll make it work...

I got the wing unit, and weapons assembled, but forgot to take pictures until it was done.

So here is the finished wing unit.
From the front. 20210415_130844.jpg Back, 20210415_130901.jpg and side. 20210415_130913.jpg

And on the body, 20210415_131050.jpg

from above 20210415_131103.jpg and all splayed out... 20210415_131122.jpg

And the beauty shot with one Buster rifle, and a beam saber.

And all accessories laid out, and the Gundam looking at the pilot in his hand.

Now I get to hide it till May 14th and the grandsons 8th birthday. I think he'll like it.

It's amazing the way these models articulate. Having your nuts by your wings is as good as a place as any other, I guess. :)
