Don't know if this helps, but here's a picture of how I've started mine.

The true- scaling doesn't look all that worth it. I think it might make more sense to use smaller discs as spacers. Right now it looks like side of the white plastic is sticking out past the edges of the legs and it should also be easier to fill in the gap with putty and get a smooth finish. Too little putty can make it harder. Also make sure your tools are wet otherwise it sticks to the tools.

Good luck!
The true scaling is certainly not worth it! Its a massive ballache!

On the chainfist, I assume you mean on the upper arm section. I thought that myself, although I'm unsure how to improve it other than just bulking it out with wider plasti tubes.

How much time does it take you for a truescale mini ti be rebuilt?
It takes me about half an hour (in total) to fully build a truescale marine.

This is obviously by working in bulk (10-20 at a time) and spread out over about 3 days, for various layers of GS to dry.

For me, it's become a necessity. I couldn't build a normal scale marine for myself now.

HA! and thanks!

And trust me, it took me AGES the first times I did it too. I've been doing it for about 3 years now, and refining it all the time.

Absolutely drop me a PM, or email.

I've been concentrating on another project which has sat in the background for over a year, but is now 90% done. See my other (new) log here.

I am also waiting for my xmas prezzies - another BoP box and Codex Traitor Legions! I'll probably end up redoing my lists after reading.

I'm using up the last of my leave days today - what better way to spend it than making toys!
Todays plan is to finish off my true scale chosen; especially Honsou, The Newborn and Grendel. I've changed up using the original tutorial for true scaling and have taken advice from thebuilder and hopefully finishing what i started will be less frustrating.
Will post pics of the WIP and finished product when the green stuff get is to drying phase

I have only seen the leak of the special relics and stuff (apparently Santa is bringing the prezzies and I will have to wait until then to find out more) - but I like the relics so far. Some great siege weapons, and the ability to actually make a Honsou with actual realistic rules is pretty fcking good IMO!!
