A finished project now. But I want to share the WIP, just like jacques suggested, compiling all the WIP pics into a single post 😀
And maybe some of you already saw these WIP in DC long ago, mafty maybe? ^^
I got this 1/100 Exia at a toyfair in Indonesia. It was my first time I seriously build a gunpla, meaning I removed seams, mod, and painted. The mods I did, ALL were inspired by gmrevo’s/izzaku/benjaminwong’s Exia.
Made the neck longer. The white part you see is plaplate.
Sharpened V-fin a little bit. Just a little bit ^^
A comparison with a default head (taken from dalong). You can see the head can now tilt down more, and the mickey mouse ears are more visible, hahah. Also sanded the faceplate, above the red gundam beard.
Some plaplate work.
Here, I sliced the torso part horizontally. The part above is the upper part, but it’s inverted in the picture (sorry this is the only pic I have >.<). Then I inserted a joint from SD aegis.
This is the lower part. Also inserted a PC part, and some plaplates around it to make it stay still while waiting for the glue to cure.
It’s quite succesfull, but then the joint became loose now T__T
Again, I added a ball joint here.
What is this part called? Pelvis? I dunno 😀
I cut a hole in this part and inserted another PC part for the ball joint.
Cut the joint for the thighs. Planned to shift it a bit lower.
A revo style standing pose? 😀
Moving on the the legs…
I cut the knee joint area, you can see a non flat surface there ^^…….
And inserted a plaplate inside. Had too much free time back then, hahahah 😀
Cut the knee armor.
I think these photos are better than my photos now 😦
Natural lighting is the best 😀
Btw, this is the answer to marzz’s question. I used this to cut all the parts when building this exia.
A mini saw I got from a hardware store 😀
That’s all! Hope my WIP can be useful!
