Hah, well said!
It seems so close to completion that I'll have to impose upon your generosity and ask for an occasional manic laugh.
The maniacal laugh is subliminal but implied.
Amazing work. Your attention to detail and craftsman ship is amazing. Do you mind telling me what you do for a living, architect or engineer maybe?
Anyways keep up the great work. Oh and reppy to you, lots of reppy.
Frustrated artist definitely but my real job is technical troubleshooting.
This is looking great! You've got a masterfull hand of the large model. I'd be baffled as to even how to start a project like this. Rep to you for taking on the challange and suceeding phenominaly! :-P
My technique is to break the model down into a lot of small models and not to be in a rush because when it's finished I'll just be starting another but different model.
Lucie has been free standing for a few days now. the rubber bands are to keep the right spur in place during re-gluing. I accidentally broke the spur off. It just happened that my ham fisted hands managed to break off one of the spurs when press fitting the greaves for the first time. The rear appendage is firmly glued and pinned this time so a repeat mishap is not likely.
The greaves are removable for ease of painting and maintenance and are just pinned in place with 0.060" plastic rods and sockets.
Lucie appears to have a hulking appearance of late. After all the concern that the legs looked too flimsy it turns out that they appear more massive than that of the original.
That's alright I like my females with a healthy set of gams.
