Small progress which did cost quite a lot of time, I hate how you can be busy for an hour and not see real progress…

When I made the bionic foot, I made the whole leg a tad longer than the other. Which in turn made him walk with a limp. To compensate for this I gave his left foot an extra bottom layer and to make him look a tad more massive, I added a front plate to his foot.
I always think it looks a tad better this way. It’s something I saw in an old picture of a captain or something.

Before I get the “Is that a giant plate on your powerfist or is he just happy to see me?” jokes ;
Yes, it is a giant plate.
No he’s not happy to see you.
I added wires between fist and shoulder, same idea as with the leg, bionics incognito.
More wires and cables are still to be added.

Why it is there? Remember this:

This was kindly vetoed by most of you and, most importantly by X-slash-X (the client).
The plate was meant to fill op the part I filed away, after some shaping it should look better:

As you can see I cut out a small rectangle. I wanted to make part of the powerfist open to show some worky bits and have cables coming out of it. But when I tried to pry open the cut out rectangle, I got some sort of lid. I like the way it looks, especially if I run a few cables from it to under the shoulderpad.
But before I do this I should at least ask my kindly client
Maybe I should've taken a front view of the fist with the lid thingy... oh well, to late now.

Very cool. I love to see 'labour of love' detail-crazy conversions like this, and I'm looking forward to seeing the finished figure. Havest thou some rep.

This is a great piece. I really enjoyed seeing it develop. Have some rep for it all. The helmets particularly are great.

Thanks for the kind words all, it is a labour of love mini indeed.
The trouble is that after building it, I must part with it again...
Oh well, can be worse, at least he'll go to a new home where they will love him and treat him kindly ;)

@ Orkboss:
I mirror post these threads on several fora for maximum coverage. The forum where the commissioner originates from usually gets the premiere with the other fora following within a day usually.
