Well, for as harsh on myself as I was for what I considered a terrible mod, I think the arms have turned out quite alright:
The RX-79 elbow joints really fit quite nicely.
Its time for some advice. Guys, really, if you every think its a good idea to save a few bucks on a knock-off Chinese version of a BanDai kit, don’t. This model has so many unforgivable flaws its ridiculous. I’m spending nearly half my time correcting obvious flaws in the mold. For instance, take a look at how “well” the head fits together:
This will be a matter of simply cutting out the pegs and gluing the thing together. But still, the guy with the mold press went a bit too fast.
For that matter, the parts that are supposed to be clear green, like say, oh, the CHEST PANELS were molded in white. *Sigh*….
Well, I’ll keep you all posted, I’m going to do my damnedest to get this thing looking as sharp as the reference kit.
