Ok, I guess I spoke too soon saying that I'd have to wait til tomorrow to finish installing the ball. The apoxie isn't fully cured but it was hard enough that I could carefully assemble her and position the balljoint to be attached to her lower torso. So here it is: It doesn't look like much right now but by the time I get off work tomorrow, it should be hard enough that I can dissasemble her and work on sculpting the midtorso onto the upper side's balljoint. What I haven't figured out yet is how I'm going to assemble her when this is done. I had to cut off the upper screw on her crotch piece leaving only the one in her lower butt. That's just not going to be strong enough. I'll need to figure out a place to put a new screw hole (I can't just glue it because it would trap moving parts and I need them separate for painting when all the building is done. The problem is there's not much of her crotch piece left so it's going to be challenging installing a new screw hole. I'm sure I'll figure something out though. Btw, you can see that I've filled the gun ports on her "wings." I have no interest in plugging weapons there and the holes are unsightly so they get filled in. I've sanded the one on the left down to where it's level and should be invisible when painted. Tomorrow I'll sand the other one. I'll also sand and smooth the inner chest where I've filled it with apoxie. Not strictly necessary since it'll be covered in robot mode but I'm'a try to keep this thing looking as professional as possible. I'm excited! Despite a few minor bumps in the road, this is going very well and I should be able to accomplish most of my goals for her. The ball joint was the second most difficult part and it's done. The most difficult part is going to be sculpting the new belly. I'm optimistic that it will go well too. Wish me luck. Also, does anybody have any idea on how to remove her rear wheels from the split mushroom pegs they're on? I've tried squeezing them with pliers so the wheels can slip over but there's not enough area to grip and the pliers end up slipping and scratching the surface. I'd like to paint her rims and that would work better if the wheels were off.
