    Those legs are hawt! Which kit are they (and the hands) from?

    The re-engineering you've done on the feet is really impressive.

    Jarrod, I'm having a tremendously good time watching this progress. Keep it up, it's looking so good already.

    Thanks, its Alt Jazz/Meister actually. The arms transform quite differently, and it was the seperate support hinges for the arms that led me to choose this body over the Subaru.

    It's the MG RX-78-2 Gundam Ver 2.0 (or the G3 Gundam, same kit, different colors)

    I really wanted to document to the progress of the particular build, it was goint to be alot of work, and I figured people would like to see it evolve, so thanks!

    Small update today.

    [​IMG]

    I decided when I started this project that the rear windows weren't just going to flip open and lay on the backs of his legs. First off, they look kinda dorky, and second, they're huge. They'd stick up to his mid-thigh, and totally restrict his knee articulation. So, I figured they'd slide or rotate into the feet somehow.

    So, today I cut a groove into wall I'd built, added a peg to the window....

    [​IMG]


    ...and now the rear window panel slides down into the foot for robot mode!

    And both rear panels attached. Onto the feet/shins next...then i think thats it for the integral engineering. Mostly cosmetic additions after that

    Oh man, I'm so in LOVE with this!! Jarrod, that's some clever work! Are those the stock rims that came with the kit? I agree with a previous post, someone suggested Fujimi BBS, those are pretty bang on.

    Thanks. And nope, those are still Alt Jazz's rims. These are rims I'll be using, the ones that belong to the 935:
