it is garage kit - i.e. resin parts for assembly. as it's production run is far limited compared to the mass production injection plastic kit the cost per kit naturally would be higher.

for dio it's always good idea to lock the joint and with bigger 1/100 it's more important.
if the resin add-on are too heavy use epoxy putty to reshape the joint - take out the no good poly cap - and lock 'em in. You might want to arms and legs as separate components and lock them up at the final stage...

do a very light spray pass and check between each pass...

Wow! Great build! @__@
I like the attention to details, especially the damages...

For the posing wise though I do know this is one of hardest one to pull off...
FWIW here's one I did in similar posing... Hope you find it useful...

Here's the kind of thing I mean...  http://www.hlj.com/product/BAN908849. It looks like they only work when on the pedistle things, but with a little wiring you can extend it out further into the body...

actually it works on the magnet switch which is on the base.
it's nothing more than head kit with fixed LED inside - no movement.
if you mount that magnet into the kit you can simply pop in the head onto the MG kits - I have couple of those from years ago and built few and mounted on the based inside a small long rectangular case for the display. Wow! Come to think of that was already several years ago when our first child was still in diaper - and she's now in Year 2. @__@

regardless whether succeed or failed this one will give much food for thought...
even got me interested with the SD mechanic and wire - or an optic cable for the lighting delivery...

with the space inside 1/100? Forget it.
Even at 1/60 you are still struggle to find the space to put the necessary gears and servo...
Maybe 1/35 Zaku head....

spelling... -__-;
I meant to say trim. ^ ^

it's not in good quality but have a look at the parts breakdown I took with my GM Kai.

http://pds22.egloos.com/pds/201101/12/68/e0037268_4d2da934b4255.jpg

you can see that I cut off those pins from the joint parts. Just leave tiny bit so the joint parts can click into the lower leg parts glued/sanded.

http://pds12.egloos.com/pds/200808/28/68/e0037268_48b60df697603.jpg

And about the head see the above... ^ ^

69
get the gel medium from the arts supply shop and apply to those river and water area...
also think of the way to tie GM, vehicles to the ground...
(hope this would suggest few thing for you to try... http://pds4.egloos.com/pds/200706/06/68/e0037268_1106242.jpg)
and fix those figures to the ground - nothing worse than small base fixed to the foot of figure to break the illusion of the diorama... ^ ^
finally there are simply way too many on the scene to distract the viewer - narrow down and force the viewer to see what you want to say...


saying that it's quite well done! Technique wise it's great!

for the knee joint all you need to do is trip those two pins on either side so the whole joint module can be clicked into the lower leg parts assembled/seam fixed. No need to do C-joint mod really... ^ ^

well... when everything else failed you can always have the bl@@dy thing plated for good - maybe 19ct gold perhaps~?

I tested with the NEX-5 I bought for missus and it's very sweet.
Go out and buy table tennis ball and make a cut and pop it onto the flash unit and you get the very soft lighting, not the harsh you get usually from the flash unit attached to the camera...
My next project would be the mini photo studio that can be dismantled when needed.

73
if it's my dio I'd ditch all other MS but two - DOM and Gundam.
Also I will reduce the size of base and put the strip of side walk along parallel to the building - i.e. the whole thing will be at around 45 angle and nothing on either side to force the viewers to follow the road and focus on two MS and figures....

the trick is just put enough materials and viewers will fill in gaps by themselves...
Also this will emphasize and clearly define the main story telling

Again that's just me. ^ ^

Engineering Corps / Re: Panel lining
« on: May 09, 2011, 10:02:43 AM »
what I normally do is get a bottle of artist's ink from arts supply shop like Riot and use that.
It's already thinned so all you have to do is run a brush soaked with ink along the panel line and wipe the excess with wet tissue.

personally I thought the aquamarine would better suited ^ ^ but the purple isn't too bad.
for the firing effect I used the cotton wool myself when I was building this vignette several years back.
at that time I didn't plan right and it was too late by the time I thought of coloring the wool...
(well the idea of firing a missle out of Z'Gok-E was wrong in the first place anyway~)
