    finally found another wreck gar today!

    making him into a junkion! i would buy the maiden japan kits, but those are a little pricey.

    so i figured i could make my own head and maybe mod the chest.
    but for right now iv just done the face.

    I'm not too sure if should add some bulk to the sides of his face or just leave it. so let me know how you like it.

    and heres his new chest

    chest number 2. which i like A LOT better and looks more like Maiden Japans version

    I'm just waiting for the apoxi sculpt to dry on the inside. it allows it to stay on using the two peg gun things

    I'm working on a chest as we speak. but i have no clue how to keep it attached to the body without just gluing it straight

    Looks like the holes in the chest are what's keeping it on. Maybe somebody that owns the set can fill us in. :)

    My chest piece is holding by friction. I made to tight fit on side of collar.
    I had a hard time figuring out in the begining, but I think it's the best way to hold up the chest piece without glueing.
