And now have really put my foot in it.

The stick is to support the leg, since the last edition was bowing forward in respect (since the ankles were weak and didn't provide enough support)

This was the actual design plan. I only started with the head so I could get the puns in :)

The template is very "boxy" so you can't just cut into a foot for supports so I'm cutting holes as I go.

Obviously the plan worked out flawlessly. To be honest, I thougt that was the case. I mean, nobody starts a build with the head, yaknow..! :Grin: :smoker::toast:

Great idea with the stick. thumbsup

OK, so my apologies for not updating this thread, I just got carried away with the build,

And Striker is complete! For comparison's sake I thought it would be fun to dig up the photo from the previous build, December 2014 to be exact...

And now the new, half scale version of Striker (with daughter 7 years older and son (who was only 2 in 2014) added :))

She's holding the same ruler (30cm) in both pictures! I'll add some "beauty shots" of Striker soon

Wow, that's a great model (and two lovely kids! ;) ) ! :) What do they say when they see their dad cutting out small paper bits an turning them into a mecha robot? Are they trying to mae models themselves, too?

I'm looking forward to seeing the beauty pics. :)

You have a beautiful family. I had no idea you were so rich!! I like the "Pacific RIm" movies. I like the modern take on the old monster movies. Great to see this model, I had no idea they existed. Could you post some links? :)
