    Thanks for the patience everyone. Here is the updated pics of the MP Galvatron. Still havent been able to track down some knees for replacements but I didnt want to keep you guys waiting.

    Here are the new pics for your entertainment.

    Thanks for everyone's support.

    Hope you like this. A new way in taking photos for me. Hopefully its come out better than before.

    no. its not. the torso and body are scratchbuilt to fit MP-01 scale. The earlier attempt, I made him too fat, so fixed this up by building a new body.

    Thanks for the comment.

    Always a fan of your work, Kelvin! I really liked your previous MP Galvatron and this already kills the other. The body looks great (nice scratchbuilding!) and the overall proportions are much better. I can't really find fault in this, my friend! Excellent work--looking forward to seeing more!

    Thank you for all the encouragement. Really appreciate it and feedback.

    I will post some more pics soon, just need to set up a bit.

    Still a way to go, with mod to the legs but am glad you guys enjoy this.

    Now onto respond to some of the queries.

    Thanks Alchemist. I am glad you can see the improvements. I think you can only get better with more practice. And also tools to help with the creation. Compliment interpreted. No worries.

    Hi Dan, thanks for checking this out. Great to hear you have one in the works. Cant wait to check it out. You did yours for a commission or to add to your collection?

    Regarding the head, a year ago, I worked on prototyping with a customizer K66. He came up with the design and did a fantastic job. The head fits an MP-01 scale.

    Thanks hXcpunk, glad you enjoy this. Wait till you see the final product. hehehe

    Love your work too. Will have more to show soon. Thank you.

    Yes, those are gundam's legs modified to fit into the body of MP-01. The base is actually a Prime but heavily modified. Due to the weight of the canon (about the same size as MP-Megatron), MP Prime's tight joints on the arms are the only way this way possible to handle the weight. So, you can now probably see the mods done on the shoulders although looks gundam on the lower part. The upper part is all MP-01.

    More to come.
