Found this very interesting project on going in Gamera’s forum sometime back during my lunch break ^^ I guess most of you guys might be accustomed to the resin version or the Damashi version but this guy is doing a full scratch build sevens swords part purely out of pla plates and he has a very ingenious method of attaching the swords…
My issues with the 1/100 NG Gundam 00 were the shoulders. To incorporate such a huge sword would have added a whole lot of weight and cause the shoulders to sag down. So what the author G.Works did was to build it entirely from pla plates. Not only is it much cheaper but it also makes the sword lighter. You won’t find an ounce of putty in this sword. And interestingly he uses a very innovative way to connect his swords.
Magnets! Never knew such stuff could be used for a kit. Really saves on the need for creating joints and clip on parts! Also I love how he creates an inner frame for the sword. Imagine if putty was used instead…. I remember HAG is selling these stuff. So now I know how to use them! For those who want to find out more can check out G.works entire thread here(Project7).
Will continue to deliver interesting builds to you guys ^^. Initially I wanted to write about 2 builds that I saw but I’ll leave that till next time :D.
Well till the next post!
