In Topic: 1/72 Nousjadeul Ger Moscato kit?

Ouch,  i have done that before too.

 

My buddy just had hand surgery this week from the repetitive stress of sanding during stratchbuilding and kit building,  they had to do something with the nerve sheath or something like that.  They may need to do his shoulder too,  same issue repetitive stress.

 

Guess it means that just because you can so something for hours on end,  does not mean you should.

 

Take care of those hands.

 

 

Not until late next week, the next few days will be keeping me otherwise occupied. I have taken most of the past week to further refine and wet-sand the existing parts which were rough. A little too much hand-sanding on my part, my thumb started to bleed from the constant pressure and abrasion from the sandpaper so it will be much-needed recuperation time.

For a long time i have thought that Mospeada has a pretty logical set up for a trilogy.

 

First movie starts with a bang,  character and story into thru the Mars assault force,  protagonist  winds up on a journey with more character intros,  ends with a bang acquiring protoculture fuel,  new alpha and a victory for the hero's.

 

2nd movie more journey,  more backstory and development of the Invid,  enter Marlene and love interest,  end in a logical place like Denver or New York.

 

3rd movie,  moving towards final objective,  resolve all the love interests,  ends in big victory for the hero's.

 

It's not to unlike,  structurally anyway,  Star Wars.

There is not a ton of decals,  but they really add that extra little bit.  Getting close to done.

Thru the building of this i have found that i will need to make and send out a few little bits,  I will send them along with the decals.  One of them is this bottom leg strut cover,  seen in grey  It's a simple little part but makes a better transition into the foot. Also need to send out those vents and 2 detail bits for the backplate.

Moved the pretty much done monster to the spraybooth/fan area for future clear coating on the parts that need to get the decals.  Hope to decal tomorrow,  few more tweaks,  flat coat and done (hopefully)

Thanks,  here is the reinforcement for the cannons,  a little tricky to mark the centers but not bad,  using 5/32 tube because it's strong but still has some give for positioning.
