Rising Gundam In Progress

I spent the last hour and a half using a needle to cut this in half because the saws I have are way too big. Yes a needle.

Here I separated the torso to insert a ball joint, and also added pegs so the thighs can rotate.

Here I inserted some ball joints for the arms and also inserted a plsticard with a hole in order to put the torso ball joint. The space for the upper torso to move was too large so I filled some of it with epoxy putty.

I swapped out the arm for one from an WZC model and also modified its bicep to be able to rotate.

Extended the length of the naginata by cutting out a sprue from the parts tree and attaching using a pin and super glue.

Made the eyes appear more menacing by adding epoxy putty to the top of its brow.

There are panel lines missing on these pieces for some reason, I had to painstakingly scribe them in.

And finally, I added detail parts in various areas.

Starting Virsago

Let's see, this is a test fit of the Virsago I've been making. Some of the pieces are being soaked in 409 solution to strip off the stupid chrome. I remember when I first saw this, the first thing that came to my mind was "oh lol wut Epyon and Altron had a bastard love child." Now I keep thinking of Kamina and Gurren Lagann because of the orange sun glasses.
