I’ve been busy over the last few days and made some great progress – although I don’t think that the pictures really do it justice! The exterior of the torso is 99% complete. I’m just waiting for an order of Tamiya supplies to arrive so I can prime it all grey with the airbrush (rather than the difficult to control excessive spraying of the Tamiya Surface Primer cans I usually use).
Most notable recent additions are the spotlight just forward of the main hatch and the lifting points on top of the torso. I admit I’ve gone a bit overboard with the lifting/tie down points, but I like them as a detail
As you can see I’ve also filled in the shoulder cylinders with a ball socket. I’ve machined up the matching ball which the weapons/arms will mount to. I still need to do some detailing around the sockets. Hopefully I’ll be able to get stuck into the interior very shortly!
