HGUC RX78 Kiva WIP06 -Chest and Shoulder Armor-
One of the slowest Henshin in the world!!! This time i focused on the shoulder armor and a bit on the chest.
Thats all i did to the chest, now the shoulder pieces;
This was the sample that i glued flat then attempted to bent… very bad idea, as it cracked all over T_T but thats okay ill leave it as battle damage 😀
I cut one of the extra rubber parts in half and glued onto the shoulder.
Put some gold on there and quickly placed the armor in place, now i have a mark on where to glue the nub aka a piece of runner ^^
Now the shape matches the style of the SIC figure as you can kinda see HERE its more of a 90 degree angle.
There are better ways to do this, but im just learning and experimenting as i go 😛
Made the pieces that go on the back of the shoulder… i didnt follow the original design and make it sharp as seen HERE and now they look like some kinda pizza roll Lol
Stitched the inside with extra pla plate and added a peg that will fit into a slot on the back piece. Added a few layers of glue on the outside.
The back pops out now and a again since the design isnt very solid.
Will continue to work out the details on the chest and shoulder a bit more. Almost two months in and still soooo much more to do @_@ Lol but im enjoying this very much ^_^
