    I’m almost done with most of the Mods to the GM/GM. I still have a few to do and one that is up for question and debate.

    First the head. I shaved off a good bit of the back of both the head and the parts I took from the other head get. Now it looks like this is how it was built. Once the putty/glue mixture fully cure I can finish sanding it all smooth.
    I even found an old V-Fin to give him, I like it. When I sand the head I will sharpen the V-Fin to make it correct.
    I still have a couple pieces of armor to add to the head, but one piece at a time right.

    I think I finally found the way I will be keeping the legs. I added “Knee pads” armor. I wanted something different but still in the builders line so I took the knee tops from a Gouf build fighters and opened them up a bit . Cut notches to fit the lines of the lower legs. They are held on with blue tack at the moment for final adjustments, then I will glue them down and fill them in with resin and do a little reshaping. I like the way they look. I had to get a nod to my GLORIOUS ZEON into this kit some how.



    This is the head with the back cut down ready for the armor to be fitted in place.



    This about how it will look. This side I did first so I was able to start sanding it. That way I was able to get the left side lined up and set in place even.



    These are the new knee covers. Once I fill in that big gap they should look much better.



    I know right now he look really bottom heavy, but I don’t have the arms and chest Mods on him in the picture. The heavy duty arms even him out.




    This is the Mod I’m not sure about. Let me know what you all think of this idea.

    As you can see for some reason the center of the waist sticks out really far from the front. This just looks weird like his a$$ is sticking out or something. So when he is standing the weight is always heavy towards the back. So he has to really lean forward and it makes him look awkward.
    I’m thinking of cutting the center section down and bringing everything in tighter and get rid of that gap.
    In the picture he is standing straight, as you can see that center section just juts out there.

    The other alternative is to move the legs back a bit. I would have to change the attachment point for the legs themselves. But if I did that it would move the legs themselves in the center of the waist itself. This might be more symmetrical, but so would cutting the center down. I'm on the fence with this one.

    What do you all think. Move the legs back, or cut the center down?

    I like the head mod, but I am not too keen on that ass mod myself.

    Ya that is just on with blue tack to see what it would look like with different back armor. I have tried a few different ones to see if something grabs me. That is part of the reason nothing was said about it in the description. I have yet to have made a choice on that.

    If I did Mod the back armor I would take the old one off. The red is just for looks right now it would not be pout on over the original armor. Ya, that would just look bad.

    Thank you. This has definitely been a learning process.
