Before I start i’ll like to thank for the really encouraging comments and feedbacks on my gundam astray red frame build. I never really expect to mod so much…I guess this is what you call AMS (advance modelling syndrome…) lol. I initially planned only on doing the knees but seeing awesome scratched build weapons by heathorn it kinda inspired me to do more. His scratch build weapons are amazing! Well heres my 2nd humble attempt at doing something like that. Well lets get scratching!!
I did my sketch of how I want the arm unit to look like. It will help me plan out the cutting.
My noob sketching lol…epic fail at art classes…
I first cut out a small piece of pla plate. Drawing the desired shape I test fitted it to the main arm part. I used a black marker to make out the shape of the blade.
I trimed out the excess and got my first template for the blade.
Using that template, I drew on the 0.5 mm pla plate by tracing on the edges of the template.
In fact 0.5 mm pla plate is quite thin, so you can use a scissors to cut out the shapes ^^. Much faster than using art knifes
Also I had to cover up the holes behing the arm unit.
Using the same method as above, I made the pla plates for covering up gaps.
Now the main skeleton of the weapons is done ^^. Will work on the detailing in my next wip for this kit.
Test fit on my kit ^^. Now it looks a bit better with the bigger blades.
I’ll take you all on!
Lastly an environmental message from my GF, save all the excess plastic ^^. You’ll never know when you need that odd piece!
Till the next post!
