I have now returned to this project once again.

Here is the next section of the arms.
Section SIX (ARM 2 components).jpg

As you can see, I have raised some of the panels to add an extra layer of depth.

Here is a link for a Lens Head model I found. It's the Lens Head Recon version. I also found a "Type B". Version. I may upload these here? Can't do that, it's against the designers wishes......Oh well.

I do have all four. It would be up to individuals to share these models, as they were once available with no strings attached, it can't be done on this forum though, to make it clear. ;)

Hey Chris, take a look

That looks FANTASTIC! Even though, there are some minor differences, he and I are building it pretty much in the same fashion.
I have to say. I really like the diorama.
Thank you very much for sharing this with us!

I learned from this guy (Micro) alot for my models! He took white wood glue and mixed with a bit water and then he "painted" the whole model with it. That makes the models harder and the surface become a better coat as with sprayed clear coat. you can see this also in other threads of this guy!

Thank you for the suggestion. I have thought about "playing" with different clear coats to see which one works the best for my needs.

I can't even print right now... no color ink :-(

www.inkproducts.com has the best bulk ink prices. They buy directly from the distributor, who gets the ink from Dupont. If they have ink for your printer, you will be shocked how much cheaper it is. ;)

Section EIGHT (ARMS ASSEMBLED).jpg

Here are the parts for the shoulder band.

The shoulder band is complete. I lined the inside so that no "white" would be showing. I wanted the part to look like it was made from one single piece of metal.

These are the parts for the chest plate.
20201012_081621.jpg

I laminated the top and bottom ends to 4mm thick. I also laminated a piece for the end. This will help give strength and rigidity to the part.
20201013_122106.jpg

I added an extra spiral of cardstock inside the former.
20201013_122139.jpg

20201013_122148.jpg

Both chest plates are assembled. I raised the square for the entrance for the arm socket.
20201013_150907.jpg

I raised the front panels and the pieces that connect them.
20201013_150931.jpg

These are added parts that go on the chest plate.
20201013_151010.jpg

I laminated the side pieces to 2.5 mm thick.
