OK....update - remember that on the last post, i was making a canopy to go with the body... and i used the lower torso of the HG Sentinel gundams to built the .... main support (if you put it that way) of the body...
As you can see, i put a plate directly underneath the canopy... and the plate is supported by one diagonal and one horizontal support.... I like to use support.. it adds to the stability of the kit...
afterward, i use two layer of 1.50 mm plates to make the front body .. like so -
as you know, I'm putting on plates on the sides so basically, those plates are gonna buckle inward.. i don't want that .. so I supported them by inserting a piece of the barrel of the 1/400 dendrobium like so -
And I close that hole with a plate (I'm guessing i don't need to take a photo of this )
that finished the front part of the body and i loved on to the rear and if you guys can refer back to the blue print, you can see that my back body is kinda angled.. so if i just stick on plates to form a box, its gonna buckle.. so i wanted to build them with support and i did it like so -
and then i closed that part with plates and as you can see from the photo, I'm still leaving the top open cos i want to put in some details in it -
and i built the , eh,, you could say left shoulder (due to its location )... out of plates .. and i put some round rods to those red spots... kinda like the missile bay of the Heavy arm custom ..
so basically.. it's gonna look like this on the kit...
and that beak like thingy you see there... I'm trying to figure out how to put on the nose... so that's basically it for this update.. Stay Tuned
