    Thanks Zathros,

    I had a really, really busy weekend, only got one "rocket pack" done.

    Well, both rocket packs done and attached!


    This completes the torso, (ok, "six pack", still not attached), now do I move onto the legs & get the six pack attached then, or do the arms....?

    Go for the arms!!!

    Ok, RB, I did go for the arms... ;)

    Started with the left one, but one question, why is Striker Eureka stuck in the 1980's?

    IMGP0707.JPG IMGP0708.JPG IMGP0709.JPG

    Just look at those shoulder pads!!!! :Nonoooo:

    Moving on...

    The biceps and upper arm;


    And then the forearm;

    IMGP0777.JPG IMGP0778.JPG IMGP0779.JPG

    So, just the hands and blades to go to finish the left arm.

    Got an idea to add some effects to the blades, so, stay tuned....

    Useless trivia for the day (also on topic ;)) today was the first screening of Godzilla, back in 1954!

    Ok, so having to stay at home on Friday to look after my son was pretty productive :)

    Got the hand completed;

    IMGP0784.JPG IMGP0785.JPG

    And then attached to the arm;


    Blades & elbow guard complete;


    And then attached


    And finally, onto the body


    The right arm is progessing nicely, should have it finished next weekend, or sooner, you never know.... :)

    Well, I completed the 94.7 cycle challenge yesterday (approx 59 miles) and the legs are finished! Happy with my time though! 3:39, average speed of 26km/h :cigar:

    Luckily I don't need my legs to build! Right arm finished & attached;

    Come 'ere & give us a hug


    As you can see, the "six pack" is now attached as I started on the pelvis which allowed me to see exactly how the parts connect.


    No cod-piece jokes now...

    I added a bit of support for the rear so it doesn't fall backwards, Think I'll do the same for the sides

    It looks good!
    I like how everything is coming together.

    he, he, looked at the instructions last night, Julius has provided support pieces in the design.... Doh!
  14. Cybergrinder

    Cybergrinder Member Extraordinaire

    Got the hips & pelvis completed last night;


    And the internal supports provided in the design...


    And then for the legs, these look like fun! Going to start with the feet, then I can see how to position the stand.

    So, I started with the feet, they are big!

    IMGP0798.JPG IMGP0799.JPG

    Then the detail;
    IMGP0803.JPG IMGP0804.JPG IMGP0805.JPG

    Then I moved onto the claves, good fun, a bit technical but not too tricky. This part would be nice for a beginner who wants to develop their skills ;)

    IMGP0806.JPG IMGP0807.JPG IMGP0808.JPG

    And then attached to the foot

    IMGP0809.JPG IMGP0810.JPG

    So now working on the knee...

    IMGP0812.JPG IMGP0813.JPG

    And then attached :)

    IMGP0814.JPG IMGP0815.JPG

    What happens when you work on models & watch classic 90's movies? (Wayne's World.... Excellent!)

    You don't have the camera nearby... So, right leg complete & attached to hips.

    Er, My leg please?

    Quick update, left leg proceeding nicely, calf & foot done. Didn't take any pics (it is the same as the right, after all) but will post some pics when I do the thigh (& complete Striker!)
  19. Cybergrinder

    Cybergrinder Member Extraordinaire

    Well, the thigh went along nicely, here's the two "chassis" pieces

    IMGP0854.JPG IMGP0855.JPG IMGP0856.JPG

    And then attached


    So then all the addons;

    IMGP0859.JPG IMGP0860.JPG

    And final Assembly!


    For scale purposes my daughter is holding a 30cm ruler. Only one thing needs be said now.

    "G'Day,Mate, got any kaiju to kill?" :)
