made progress on the (legs)

it was a pain to measure out the panel lines on these since they have to be identical :blink:

I don't think the word epic is anywhere near "epic" enough to describe this project. This is the sort of thing that, upon witnessing, either inspires one to improve one's abilities beyond his/her competence/comfort level, or prompts a hobbyist to swear off modeling/scratch building altogether, and gather all hobby tools into a trash bin for ignominious disposal...

Seconded!

And if Hasegawa or some other toy company does not take note of the awesome in this work, and produce, well something, I will be shocked.

it's quite hard adding details on this ship...

at first i was like... there so much room for details :lol:

but, i don't want to over-clog the surfaces, so figuring out which detail and how detailed those details

should be, isnt easy...

made some more details...

ill give it my personal touch so that it isnt completely identical :p

cut out large holes and backed them with a piece of styrene sheet..

and ofcause my good friend Milliput :wub:

This is amazing! I bought this thing, and was planning to just build it and paint some resin on or in the parts. But yeah... gonna do at least some of what you are doing. No stranger to modding a kit, kitbashed the old amt ENTERPRISE kit into my own design. But I would like to make this able to transform(well, partsform) via magnets, which would also give the shoulders movement. Any suggestions on making the elbows movable?
