Man, this is one tough and superbly clean build!! :)
Thank you sir! The camouflage is even more complicated and detailed. There is going to be even more work involved in making that one, once I start on it.

Here is section 11 (WAIST). As you can see by both the diagram, there are quite a few components this this section.
Section ELEVEN (WAIST).jpg

Here are the parts for the waist. With these components, not only will I be greebling them, I will also be reinforcing them to add strength and rigidity.

You really took the time on each part and it shows!! :)
Thank you sir. The more that I get into this hobby as a whole, the more I want to put as much detail and greebling into the model as I possibly can. So, with every part, I will look it over and (attempt to) determine how the detail and greebling should be. This model has really made me focus on the smallest of details and look at how detailing is done and how things work to achieve the level of "realism" in my models.

Here is section 12 (HEAD).
As you can see by the diagram, there are several components to it.
Section TWELVE (HEAD).jpg

Here are all of the parts for the head as a whole.
20201020_212251.jpg

Starting with the components for the neck.
20201021_090735.jpg

20201021_121216.jpg

I laminated the center piece to the needed thickness of the component.
20201021_121726.jpg

I raised the darker part to make the tubes to look more like a pneumatic actuator.
20201021_131937.jpg

The neck it assembled.

20201021_143838.jpg

20201021_143845.jpg

This is the maim component of the head.
20201029_201219.jpg

I laminated the sides to the needed thickness of the component.
20201029_201931.jpg

20201029_201951.jpg

This is the part for the jaw/mandible.
20201029_202015.jpg

The jaw/mandible is assembled.

Continuing on with the head.

These are the parts for the tubes that go on the back of the head.
20201101_135102.jpg

The tubes are assembled.
20201101_135105.jpg

This part also goes on the back of the head (between the two tubes).
20201101_135529.jpg

This component is assembled.
20201101_135534.jpg

20201101_135552.jpg

Now moving to the front of the head.
These parts go on either side of the lens.
20201101_141332.jpg

These side pieces are assembled.
20201101_141609.jpg

I decided to line the insides to make it look like the whole thing is metallic.
20201101_141621.jpg

20201101_145405.jpg

20201101_145433.jpg

These are the parts for the lens.
20201103_130024.jpg

The lens is assembled. I raised the "wires" and "domed" the actual lens itself.
20201103_162748.jpg

20201103_162800.jpg

I laminated a disc to about 2mm to seal the back end and give the component more stability and rigidity.
20201103_162813.jpg

Here are the parts for the shroud for the head.
20201103_184901.jpg

The shroud is assembled.
20201103_211837.jpg

20201103_211854.jpg

20201103_211918.jpg

On to assembling all of the components together.

I wish I knew the diameter of that lens, I might have one around. Another option would be getting U.V. hardened clear epoxy. It could be dropped on, and when hit with U.V. light would look like class. It dries perfectly clear. Home Depot has it, it's not very expensive, and fixes many things. It's holding my glasses together. Titanium frames, and rimless. I wound the wire of wire, and used the U.V> activated glue, instant fix. They were very expensive glasses. Kind of disappointed with the quality, but I did step on them by accident. It came out excellent!! :)

The lens is approximately 12mm. As for the U.V. hardened clear epoxy, I will have to look into that. Thank you for the tip!
