Gaijin Gunpla

I decided to start this kit with the head. I had some ideas I wanted to try right away. Usually I start with the feet, but what the hell, eh? I changed the shape of the chin, if you want to call it that. It was too long and rectangular before, now it is shorter and sharper.

I also wanted to do something different with the eyes but before I could do that I had to modify some pieces. Here is the main piece for inside the head.And here is my new model saw.

What have I done?!?!

Don’t worry, everyone. See it still fits in there nicely.

And the bottom half as well.

The top half is painted with clear orange. The bottom half will be painted black once I add some layers of plastic to make it thicker. I did sand down the tiny bumps that bandai had for eyes. ick.

I picked up some metal verniers to use on this kit.

For the back thrusters:

For the thrusters on the back of the legs:
For the bottom of the feet:
I realized I would have to modify the feet somewhat to make these fit but that is alright because I wanted to make this guy taller. I will be able to kill two birds with one stone.
