for me first thing I do is grab a pin vice and drill/widen the holes on virtually every parts - before start to test fitting.
after test fitting I either cut or trim the pegs depends on the need - usually I leave the peg as the guiding pin rather than anything else since with widen holes the peg no longer can hold the parts together anyway

for c-joint mod I actually study the assembly instruction and work out the way to achieve - holding the actual pieces on hand of course makes lot easier though

for bonding the parts I use the polymer cement you can get from Hobby Co - the blue plastic bottle with a long yellow cap though I noticed it's now grey(?) - as well as the CA from super market.

Engineering Corps / Re: What kind of Glue/Cement and Putty Do you use?

for carving block I use modeling clay that comes in a plastic tub and white in colour.
It's air dry and have enough time to model/shape/carve...
otherwise I use Tamiya epoxy putty as well as SubeSube I bought in Japan last year.

with glue I mainly use Reveal poly cement that comes in the plastic bottle with needle as the tip.
I bought two at a time and they usually last for a year before I need to purchase another set

Very nice colour scheme - I like it!
For the posing, with 1/144 kits unless you are working with the latest high articulated models it's best to rip them apart and fixed the joints - you could use the existing joint or use epoxy putty to make the block to hold arms/legs in that dramatic pose... ^ ^

Loved LED effect!
Not a big fan of FF style coloring but LED effect does make this one to stand out!

By the way I always thought GunCannon has two eyes behind the goggle and so does all other GM variants???

Very nice build although Titanz color isn't my fav. ^ ^
[A hint! If you paint the joint in white it will look super fav - dark blue and white goes really well]

Officer's Bulletin / 1/100 Type 74 Hover Truck Resin Kit
« on: March 30, 2011, 09:00:41 AM »
Firstly I do not believe this is the copy of B-Club's same scale resin kit although I will need to dig up the B-Club kit to compare side by side.
According to my fading memory I got this off from a member in other forum when he had this kit on limited production run.
At that time I was looking for 1/100 kit and with the price it seemed to be good alternative to much more expensive B-Club kit.

Anyhow, somehow along the line I never had chance to do anything with this one but who knows one day it might come in handy for any of future diorama/vignette projects... ^ ^

As you can see the casting isn't best but as a background accessory in the diorama it should do fine - especially as the damaged piece~ ^ ^

for the head mod.
the easier way would be this...


after fixing the seam line and painting you can simply click into each other.
also I found lengthening 2mm does make the difference - I had tinkered with this exact kit when I was building Ako Hobby Spartan conversion although ended up using just skirt and bits and pieces off major parts and grafted onto type-c parts.

these old kits are great way to enhance/polish the c-joint mod. as well as other usual mods to make it easier for me to paint and snap afterward Lego style~ ^ ^

$800 ?! @__@
Wow! Wish I had that kind of money when I was building my gig.
From memory I've spent total of $400 by buying 2nd hand pieces...
Was under strict condition set out by missus so couldn't really afford shiny new gears~ -__-;

for a piece like that Japanese modelers have been doing vacuum forming for years.
use balsa wood to carve out the shape and use the kit to soften the plastic sheet and with help of vacuum cleaner stuck the plastic over the shape.
Do the same for the other half.
Cut& trim and glue two pieces together
Fix any seam issue...

I'd love to get a kit myself but never been able to.
I know what's involved but too lazy/chicken to tackle DIY style ^ ^
