Resurrection Process 2

Rise from your graves!!!

I allowed myself only one shot to get it right. No retakes. This is the result.  Everybody gets their own picture!  They're all special to me.

Lotta guys are coming up out of the boxes.  More than half are out... Gonna have to start prepping a bigger space.

MG Exia - WIP 2 - Scoring and Cutting

Because it's gotta be done.

Hack and slash. Gotta fit these onto the shoulder frame and check the lines again. Re-assess.

MG Shenlong - WIP 2

Technically this would be WIP 1.  WIP 2 is just me spraying the whole frame again with the same acrylic chrome silver.

Made sure to hit the joints properly... of course almost all of it gets covered up but I do this on principle not for practically.  If there's one thing I've noticed about my building process it's that I consistently build the entire frame first and then attach the armour to it.  I look at them as separate entities so I almost never follow the build process in the manual. I love seeing the frame before I launch into the armour section.  Long time readers will have noticed that with me.  I don't know why I do it that way.  All I know is that I have to do it that way.

What came before.
What comes now.
Recap:  First I sprayed on runner.  Cut, nub work, assemble.  Paint does come onto my fingers as I do this.  Spray again, same colour hitting trouble spots and joints.  Tissue in the cockpit so Wu-Fei doesn't get hit.

Next:  Armour time starting at the bottom and working up.  Also something I always do.  I don't know why.  I'm going to stop questioning it.  It is what it is.

The end?!

This is why everyone should have a Valkyrie.  Raptures comes and then everyone can just hop in the cockpit and head out into space.

I don't know what we'd do once we got there but one step at a time.

Celebrate your life - Exodus

Day's finally winding down.  I did everything totally randomly.  Spur of the moment with no plans.  The overcast skies finally opened for me.  Literally.  More randomness and then back to normal.  Maybe.

And now the time of Taurus comes to an end bringing in the twins, the dichotomy, the duality, the balance. Gemini's your time is now.
