Toymaker versus DC23 face-off WIP - smurfs head


MG The O WIPPhoto

The putty work on this build is kinda slowing me down a bit and I need more light source in my work station for better WIP photos. Other than that, the build is going smoothly. I will be needing around 4 packs of Tamiya Epoxy putty ( quick type ) as I will still have to scratch build the huge front skirts, a round backpack and maybe replace the shoulders.

I have extended the waist and added 4mm ( a couple of 2mm stacked together ) and did lots of putty work on the boob and the head. Thanks to my tools, internal exposure modifications are so fast and easy now! I removed sections on the armor parts and boob part and also permanently glued the wires.

Although the head looks like a smurfs hat, I feel it looks closer to how Kobayashi envisions these kinds of mecha designs. I think I would be doing less pla plating on the armor parts, but will over detail the exposed internals instead. Again thanks a ton to Kenny ( Toymaker ) for his Kobayashi book.

Not really sure if I will work on this kit, the MG Zeta or snapfit the RG Aile Strike today, but I will have project updates of any of those builds soon. Here are a few snaps of this build so far...
