Take you'r hands OFF the child...you have twenty seconds to comply!
Shoulder flaps completed and installed, starting on the pelvis section.
Wow, I didn't think it that far out, but, Yeah!!:thumb:
Just a wonderful work,
I am looking forward to seeing the finished model
Pelvis section complete...piece of cake. The only problem I ran into was the outer circles for the hip joints, they'er a little larger than the circle strips they attach to. It's really not a big deal as they are glued to the main hip part and to the leg.
I doubled up on the bellows ribs which I highly recommend doing.
I originally thought there would be some pivoting movement between the upper body and the hip section, but as you can see the movment is minute, so I will be gluing this when complete.
OK I've been slackin. I'm from the generation of the walkman and last week I steped into the world of iPod, I needed something for work, any way I spent every evening last week figuring out all the apps and functions, loading music, syncing etc. No I'm not one of those who are symbiotically connected to their fancy shmancy cell phones. I guess I'm old school, I don't tweet, facebook or text, I call someone I want to here their voice and I want them to here mine.
I must admit the iPod nano IS pretty cool, technology is quite amazing nowdays, but I digress, I got back on track today and finished one of the thigh segments, everything went really smooth.
This totally rocks Dude, you're doing an awesome job. I'm definately building this!:thumb: Jules does such a great job on these models.
Moving right along...really, I'm not trying to make a religous statement here, it's just the way the parts come out. Any way Alfadoc mentioned he had some structural integrity problems in this area, with that in mind I glued in a piece of card board, we'll see what happens, otherwise everything is going very well.
Moving swiftly ahead, finnished the main part of the leg, this thing is really big, I thought there may be some strength issuse in the large main part of the leg but after gluing on all the details it becomes quite strong. It all came together very well, no problems. Getting real close to rapping this thing up.
One leg done one to go. This model seem to get easier as you go down, this main leg segment was extreemly easy.
Amazing! I like the way all those little parts come together to make it look really substantial, it looks very solid. Do you think you'll need to weight the feet for it to stand or will it balance ok with the body attached?
Amazing work, cannot wait to see this done and posed. I'm really going to build this, I am, you'll see.:thumb:
I believe it's going to stand well, it was designed to stand as-is, actually the leg leans to the rear standing alone, when everything is together the upper body actually is forward of the lower parts. The foot pads are so large, there's really alot of serface area to stand on.
Done deal..the toughest part of this mod to build was the gun barrels. Very engoyable build, Julius has done an outstanding job, I would recommend this to everyone.
A few more pics and a size comparison
That is a freakin awesome buildI I really must build this. Nice to see how bis it is. You did a fantastic job on it. Kudos on the build.:thumb:
That's brilliant! I want to make one for sure now.
