    Ball joint wrists

    The ball joints were a lot like the ones I've done in this thread. However, since this ball was so small, with Leadfoot I glued the piece I cut from the arm into his hand with Plastic Fusion. Then I used my dremel and slowly ground out a hole. I made the hole angled so the hands snapped onto the balls.

    I might have to do this with some of my previous wrist work if those hands fall out: Attach some plastic in the hand opening and make angled cuts....

    Reprolabels

    I just applied the Reprolabels and painted over the tan spots that were showing in alt mode. Next I'll have to do some painting to his robot mode...

    Arm Rifle

    I had a Gundam weapon that, after I clipped a tab, fit perfectly in one of the slots on Leadfoot's arm. It kind of resembles the CGI:

    Thanks Tim!

    I did a little bit of painting last night, but not as much as I would have liked to have gotten done. I painted his seat belts and the bars in the windshields. It's kind of hard to tell because the windows are so dark...
    I also did a little dry brushing on the inside of his hood and rear to bring out a little detail in robot mode. Next time I work on him I plan to do the same with as much of his robot mode as I can...

    Thanks! I looked a little bit for some pics of the actual car's interior, but decided instead to just go ahead and paint them. It may not be accurate, but I like how it brings out the detail...
