Astray Red Frame Wip Phase 3 – Major surgery..

Now for the past few days I have been thinking out how to give the legs a similiar look to the PG red frame. I initially thought of sanding down the whole knee cap armor to a more angular look. But after an initial attempt I realized that I had 2 problems….lots of time spend on sanding and getting the other leg to look the same… So I said screw that I decided on some major surgery…

Now for the tools

For major cutting I'll be using the tamiya saw ^^

For some of the smaller portions, I'll use my tri tool ^^

Astraywip302After the surgery. The most crucial part is the middle piece which I will attach the pla plates.At this point there is no turning back…hope my pla plating will work…

Astraywip304Cut to shape and sanding the edges a bit. Took about a good hour to get the shape right…

Astraywip305Yes it fits ^^. Need some trimming of the edges though.

Astraywip306Comparing with the original leg on the green astray. Will definitely add more details to the knee cap later.
