On with the update -
I extend the middle piece of the upper torso to cover the ugly front of the lower piece ...
the lower torso is, sadly, haven't been touched yet ...
Next thing I do was put on some detail platings on the shoulder ... BOTH FRONT AND BACK ... same shape on all four sides
I haven't actually cleaned the shoulders cos I am planning to do more ...
after that , I cut those those little things
And then these two slots
Combine them both and with a little bit more plate all around, I got these
You might be wondering why I did that and What they are ....
I will tell you why I made them later on in this post .. what they are ... well, they are part of the knee armour
Now that I got it, I have to now figure out how exactly should I place them ... after spending , I think 2 weeks, I got a idea and started cutting away immediately
By the power of Dymo tape ( labelling tape) let there be a accurate guide line on where to cut ..
A few more pain staking hours and got this ..
After that, I cut those two little strips
and now, after spending quite some time, I figured out what I have to do ... so I started the inner of the legs for the mechanism to work
You will see the red circles.. I cut away some portions of plastics
Why I cut it away ...?? Because I need to do this -
Same things on the other leg as well -
The breakdown of the mechanism is as fellow
When knee joint is bent, the curvy knee armour attached to the knee joint will bent along... and by doing so, the lower part of the knee armour will move up along the slot I drilled on it ... thus, achieving this mechanism.
Doing these mods, allow the knee to acheive this
It was a pretty stressful 2 weeks trying to think how to make it work, but Im gland I thought of this ... I know this is not perfect But i really love it ...
Hope you guys will love it too ...
Until next update
