Neo Zeong arms

Getting closer! Detailing the arms is a real chore since you have to do it six times. That’s the beauty of this beast. Following the mechanic file image, added these details… Realized that I can use the kotobukiya pistons for the funnels, I think I’ll go with this

Neo Zeong hands

Was bothered by the empty space inside the hands now that I converted all of them to movable fingers, so I savaged the landing gears from my millennium falcon kit to fill the void.

Shipping glass is expensive! Anyway I’ve gotten 2 new pieces back, one “aqua iridescent” and … Continue reading
