    Latest progress. My blues aren't very different :/ lol





    I just have to paint the head parts and some of the metal frame/weapon parts as well as some touchups like on the thruster bells on the back. I think i'm gonna change the outside of the thruster again as it's too similar to the rest of the backpack :/

    Test fitting some pieces


    Some parts primed but there are some places that need to be fixed some more, like a rough edge or an edge that needs puttying so that its all even

    I'm focusing more on my RG MK II but after i finish painting tomorrow, im stuck waiting on decals, so hopefully i'll start on this guy again.

    This is just really an update on what i plan to do. lotting: I can't paint my RG right now as its late at night and don't want to bother anyone with noise. So i started lightly working on this again.

    While fixing parts, puttying, sanding, the usual, i notice alot of the little rivet details are kind of bland and need to be rescribed. So i figure why bother, so i'm gonna drill them out and replace the more noticable ones with new ball bearings.

    Plans





    On the part for the back of the neck, the wires are kind of bland so i might replace them with some copper snake wire and other types of wire to add some extra sharpness to them.

    Neck Cables

    Then on the chest, there are these two cable like things that go under the wider parts. One of them is much shorter than required, so while going through my metal parts collection i figured i'd use some ammo feed belt i got from mechaskunk before he closed his store.

    Torso

    Original parts



    Feed belt



    Replaced parts




    Oh yea and im debating using these magnets for most of the armor pieces so they can come off, but they are pretty weak. :/ Plus if i do my dio plans, the kit will not be able to be removed again. LOL

    Magnets



    Thats all for now i guess. LOL /end essay.

    Looking very sharp so far. You planning to put the decals on?

    Man, an FSS kit.

    Love the details on it, and how you are making your subtle mods. Normally from what I usually see in the stores, they don't need much modding, but this is very nice.

    Yea i'm just replacing things i think can be improved. I'm not doing anything drastic to change it's appearance. All of the metal bb's are replacing detail that looks just like it, except the recast lost some of the sharpness.

    I finished adding most of the bb's to replace the detail and I figured I would try a test piece for what I'd paint the armor in. This is over white primer-it will get a base coat of gloss black before I spray the real paintwork-and with a bright light on it so you can see the blue/purple hint to the Alclad Gunmetal. It's a nice change over just gloss black. I'll end up sanding this part again anyway (still needs work) but you can see the difference. I hope lol



    The middle picture is the side i didn't spray as much.

    Was talking w/ another modeler and realized maybe i should upgrade the cmil of the rods i'm using for pinning. So i went from 3/16" to 2mm rods. Much more supportive.



    Much more sturdy. And another random shot of sharper detail.
