My very first purchase of the month from HAG ^^. Want to take a break from the astray for a while, need some time to figure out the later mods :D. Also I realised i run out of flat black so that I can finish handpainting my gouf…. well anyway I’ll just start on this guy first in the meantime. Gundam Sd Sangokuden Taishici start!
Straight assembled from the box. That crab like thingy is actually his armor ^^. Its has quite a cool transformation gimmick but I won’t be showing that till I finish his main body. I love his weapon. Very different from the tons of swords out there!
Now I am gonna try something out that I always wanted to do that I always see other modelers do…hee….wish me luck! Now for some additional articulation mods hee…
Sawed the arm into 2 with my tri tool
Add some pla plates to cover the holes. Also provide a better grip for my parts later
X marks the spot!
Drilled with 1.5mm drill and then glued the koto add on connectors to it ^^
Compared with the original arm. Now I have another point of articulation for the arm ^^
Next i’ll add a ball joint to the mid section. Need to hollow this part out
After hollowing the interior. Now for that ball joint
Looks familiar to you? Yep its from kuan yu’s right arm ^^. A poor man’s way of getting a ball joint haha 😀 Cut and glued together with pla plates. Temporary I’ll attach it with blue tak.
A closer look at the joint
Now lets test the mid joint. Now it can turn left
And front! Unfortunately, its unable to bend back wards…probably needs some reworking.
A little preview ^^
Well thats all for the night…man I am tired…but statisfied gunpla nite ^^ Got to work on the hands and mid section the next round!
Till the next post!
