Continuing from where I left off for my SD Taischi Dom, more mods and the MTV vid that made it possible..
In my previous post I mentioned that i’ll be sacrificing some of its henshin abilities. After watching a certain MTV on my cable TV I got that mood to start cutting ^^. This is a view of the back pack where I plan to insert this new mod I am trying out.
Recognize this part anyone?
This will help me to swerve the back armor to the shoulders.
To find parts to connect, I look through my collection of unused rubber parts….
Okay it fits!
Did some test fitting on the back pack to decide where to place the mod
This is how it will look like when the back armor swerves forwards.
Now to scratch build the back connector.
I taped together 2 flat plastic bars. And marked out the points to drill. In this way, I can get four identical pla plates at one go.
After drilling ^^…but a certain mishap happened…
Looks like I got to carried away with the drilling…
To prevent that again I put a piece of icecream stick as a base for the drilling.
Now test fit with the rubber parts that I picked out. Fits snuggly ^^
Cut each side to get this.
Added a pla plate to the bottom. Will add one more to the top to secure the rubber joint.
For the other side, just glue to a pla plate. Once dry cut out the shape.
Test fit on the back pack. Fits just nice. Now to glue em up!
I added another additional pla plate to secure the joints together.
Now for the test fit!
The back shot
Well thats all for today. And before I go the Mtv video that got me modding for the day lol ^^
Till the next post!
