    Hows the black lion going?

    Are you about done with the black lion? I'm getting giddy thinking about building the complete set. I can hardly wait to put it beside my original toy on display.

    Hey V5,

    I guess you still can't recieve files from me yet??? so I'll post the pics I tried to send you here.

    I have the right side feet completed and I sorted how I wanted to get the arms to attach. Just need to build the other feet and wings and the Black Lion notations will be complete.

    Sorry for the slow progress latlely it's been a rough couple of weeks :p

    G1, your build just keeps looking better and better every time I see it. The only thing I don't like when I look at it is the face, and that's just the design itself and nothing to do with your build. I am thinking I might go back and remodel the face to give it a more rounded shape. I can't wait to see this guy standing on his own:mrgreen: I still have to do the blazing sword yet, so Ill try to knock the new face and the sword out this weekend.

    Looks like we have a possible candidate for the Free Models 4 contest!!! :twisted:

    BTW... my request maybe kinda annoying, but can someone post again the links for all of the 5 lions? Thanks!!! :-D

    This looks like a good partner for sir Getter's Voltes V!!!

    Hey Hans, thanks for the kind words. I would love for someone to enter this into the free model contest, but that's just me dreamin, do you have to have instructions as a requirement to enter it? If so maybe I will make up some instructions.:mrgreen:

    No problem at all requesting the links, that's what were here for, to help each other out when we need it.:thumb: The links are all on the first page actually, but I have added them to the bottom of my post. I will be updating the thread with the link for the black lion a little later today, just finalizing the black lion before it gets pdf'd(is that a word?):confused: then I will compile them all into one pdf. I will upload the black lion seperate for those that already have the others and an all in one pdf for those that don't.

    Again thanks for the kind words:wave:

    sorry for the double post, I will be releasing the black lion today but the sword will be released at a later date(few days to a week,but it will get done) mainly because I haven't had the chance to model it yet and so I can be done with the bulk of this model, with just the sword left to go I can start to focus on the vehicle voltron model and finish up with optimus and megatron hopefully(not really liking the way megs built up, some parts might be confusing to others)

    Haven't said yet (didn't want to make this all about me) but the reason why the building slowed so much is I lost my job about 3 weeks to a month ago and have been with the kids during the day(stay at home dad for now) and I have 2 boys, age 2(terrible 2's:cry:) and another boy almost 4 months, so needless to say they take up alot of my time, modeling time got cut down to maybe 2 hours a night and weekends that the wife don't have plans for us. Oh well that's life, best thing to do is be positive about it and look at it as a change for the better cause it prompted me to buy my union card and now have a job prospect starting at $31.00 an hour (bricklayers union), but that's if they call.

    wow... that's not good news sir... We hope you'll find a new, and better job...

    About the Free Models 4 contest, I don't recall mentioning any need for an instruction manual, especially now that the contest allows modifications to the models being entered, provided that the model being built is free :-D

    Regards to your family sir, and again we all hope you'll settle your current situation on a better note :-D

    If nobody's gonna build it for the contest (currently), if my time permits, I'll give it a try!!! bounce7

    BTW, I just learned a few minutes ago from Wikipedia that only one person created both Voltron and Voltes V... I forgot his name though... :-D

    Well guys here it is, myself and Getter1 worked out as many of the errors as possible it's a bit of a tough build, but worth it.:thumb:

    Enjoy all and as always I would love to see some build threads. I also decided not to lock the completed pdf. because I would love to see how (if anybody wants to)people modify and improve upon the model.

    A big thank you goes out to Getter1 for all of his contributions to making this papermodel possible, Thank you bud:mrgreen: And a thank you to everybody else for your positive support:wave:.

    p.s. the sword will follow in a few days to a few weeks at the most.

    I'll put it up here, but like the others it's just for a build aid. I had to do alot of recoloring and part mirroring, as well as the custom parts made by Getter1.

    Hey V5,

    Sorry to hear bout he job situation :( Things will get better soon I'm sure of it :D

    You're very welcome for the assistance :D It was a pleasure building such an Icon. I'm really looking forward to seeing the vehicle Voltron now since this one has turned out so well.

    It's definently a tough build in spots but as you said well worth it :D

    Congrats on such a great model. Hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did.
