I've been lurking a long time and absorbing the wealth of information in this forum as well as admiring all the builds that people have been doing here. I've actually never done a figure before, but I've seen some great figurine builds posted, in particular the Mizuirogakuen ones. I figured I might as well throw myself on the mercy of the court, and ask for crits. In particular if there are any general rules for proceeding with an instruction-less model, or if that just comes with experience? Nemuke, a girl with pointy sticks for legs. (noticed an old thread where someone's sister was building this one, was wondering if they took any pics?) Ugh, you can really see the glue joints in the hair. A new face has been glued over twice already and it still looks funky. And the erm nipples and slip-on panties felt really, really creepy. But it was a fun model and the first I've built that actually has a complete scene. Hatsune Miku, off the pepakura gallery. Apparently a robot pop-star. I'm actually wondering if ANYBODY has built and photographed this one. I've been looking but have only found the short stubby model and some kind of gothic recolor. (perhaps I fail at google...) I'd love to see how this model is SUPPOSED to look! (particularly looking for un-fugly shoulders, and suspended-in-air pigtails) Started out fun, but eventually got tedious. More advanced than what I'm comfortable with. First time I tried backing tabs (for the face), paint, and extensive edge coloring. Some broken parts in the pdo (some normals are backwards, some parts are floating in space). Just barely stands up on its own...and those "pigtails" are not going to last the week. Perhaps they should have been fastened with a length of coat hanger?
