View Full Version : MG Dual Saber Qan{t} Custom

May 17, 2015, 2:39 PM
Hi guys, just wanted to share my last completed project. I wrapped it up about January, after a little 6 month break. I'm please with the paint scheme and my first run at custom pla-plating (shoulders) and use of actual resin conversion kit. Pics are from camera phone, so excuse the lack of hi-res. Thanks.

Very good work on this man. I love the coloring, and the added weapons make the Quanta look super menacing.

1: Holy crap that looks mean...and I mean that lovingly :D

2: how did you do the double mounting rig on the back?

Thanks everyone!

Kenico: It took some work. Since the kit is intended to only mount over the right shoulder. I had to cut and rotate the second bracket to mirror over the left side. I basically cut at each angle of the arm and did a 180; some did require filling in with putty to close the gaps. I cut into the backpack to create another notch for the arm to hook into. I have a little Dremmel drill with sanding discs which made the process easier. One issue with the resin was the peg that connected the sword to the arm; but I found some polycap pegs that fit perfectly. This gives a little more durability and movement. Overall, it was tedious but came together nicely.

The symmetry and paint job is well done.
