    Hey guys.
    I like the Generations Drift/Blurr mold a lot, but I would like it even better if I could put in a twisting waist so he could take more poses. However, I've never done anything like this before. The torso is a single molded piece, so I'm not entirely sure on where to start.

    Anyone have any tips for me?

    Thanks for reading

    cut the waist in half and add plastic stock to fill in the hollow then use plastic rod to creat a "spine" for lack of a better word.

    keep in mind the amount of plastic you cut away and the amount you add should equal each other.


    EXCEPT!!!!!!!!!!!

    Blur has a piece that holds the doors to his waist that is in the way, you will need to re design the door connection, its not impossible but it is more involved than one realizes at first.
