Neo Zeong details

I forgot exactly when I started building NZ, but from my posting history it’s a bit over 2 months ago. I have been working on this pretty constantly so it felt like a long process. The weapon container is one of the more detailed parts on NZ so I gave it a bit more spice.… Continue reading Neo Zeong details

Neo Zeong arms II

While moveability of NZ isn’t one of its forte, I was quite taken to its pose in the mechanic file, where it has its arms outstretched.

Neo Zeong Fingers II

I don’t know why I still have the will to carry this through, but I do! Spent the weekend creating panel line and recessed details in the fingers… all 30 of them! I’ll have 4 of the funnel bits floating. When they are detached, they open up and extend into 3 shards. Now I’m going… Continue reading Neo Zeong Fingers II

Neo Zeong fingers

Its painful to do this 30 times! But the fingers is one mod I didn’t see a lot of, and the illustrations of NZ always comes in a certain way. Also planning to install ball joints at the bases of the fingers rather than the fingers themselves… I think that’s the way NZ was always… Continue reading Neo Zeong fingers
