    Re: RPC's WIP ~ my first MG's

    Plenty of the AMT kits still about.

    This is mister bones, he is a custom B1 battle droid from the Star Wars Aftermath books. Disney version is a bit light on the wepons and bones but is a good ref for when i come to paint him.

    Re: RPC's WIP ~ my first MG's

    That is looking really good so far. But not to be nit picky, but the red stripe that goes down the leg is perfect, but the one on the foot is off. In the picture of Mr. Bones the stripe goes aross the foot as a solid stripe, you have two stripes going up the foot. And there is a red stripe that goes around the thigh right above the knee. Other than those very small changes I think it looks flippin' cool.

    Cheers and as for your nit picking, i call it artistic licence...��

    I have also put a strip down the back of the leg.....

    Made a start on the paint after a massive amount of masking so far.


    The keen eyed among you might notice a bit of artistic licence used here as well.......lol

    Re: RPC's WIP ~ my first MG's

    Sweet! He looks really cool...BTW the 3rd black rib on the left doen't match the 3rd on the right, it is off by .0005 degrees and one of the chip marks on the right corner of the heel on the left foot is to small for the rock that actually hit it, the chip would be 1.233333% bigger....Ya I'm being a smart a$$

    Really thou Great job on this guy.

    Re: RPC's WIP ~ my first MG's

    Just a thought, if I may. Add a few long thin antennae coming out of the probe. Like long range radio antenna or something. looking at the last picture I can see that you have a few nice little round holes that you can use already. One round hole is right above and in front of the square thingy on its side, the other ones you can see in the second picture. You have two little flat round things in between the thruster and the solar panel with what looks like conduit tubing running back to a junction box. Being a probe it would have all kinds of "sensors" poking out of it.

    Other than that I think it is cool as Hell!!

    Re: RPC's WIP ~ my first MG's

    You comment as much as you like, its all good stuff and i really like to hear what other think out stuff like this.when im building im never sure other see what see, if you know what i mean.

    This is how the probe started out as a bottle of Yakult drink, add a bit of milliput andvwe have something new.

    Re: RPC's WIP ~ my first MG's

    Well hell now that I something to compare it to for a size of the thing, it is pretty damn big!. Nice way to think outside the box. You do know that there is a box right?? Because you are way outside of it.
