    Looks great so far :thumb :thumb :thumb 
    Can't wait to see the finished version. I guess he will partsform as I see Sky Shadow's arms attached to the tank turret.
    And could you do me one favor, please? How wide are the wholes inside those 5 mm pegs? For example on Spinisters' guns' handles. That would help me a lot with a new custom I just planned.

    they are the same peg size – 5mm.
    but for the spinister gun – underneath/within the peg, there's a 1mm Ø hole.
    this allows it to peg/plug onto a protrusion on skyshadow tank turret

    the shoulder pads from 2D to 3D — 1st set. for final pads, holes were laser cut out instead of etched.

    I'm even more impressed by the offical product render like photos.

    Thanks for the call-out, and how on Earth did I miss this the first time? You took a concept and made it crazy better, I like what I see :D 

    I'm also glad you chose a darker blue tint for the dominant colour. I always wondered how it will look like since I picked instead a baby blue shade.
