yes those circle parts look like they would ping off onto the floor and have you on your hand and knees looking for them.

That has happened a few times, plus they are just a pain to mount.

Ok up next the shoulder joints mounted to the arms.

Next up is the lower shoulder armor. These are different on left and right arms. Will do right arms first.

Not much of an update. I primed the parts for both arms and the head. Since then it's all rain and humidity.

So for now I have been removing and bagging up the parts for the weapons. Deciding the color scheme of the weapons, which mostly consists of white, black, and gun metal.

Made a lot of progress but still so much to do.

I hear you man.Nothing but rain and humidity up here too.My airbrush got completely gunked up when I tried to paint and I had to totally disassemble it.I love Vallejo acrylic paints, but they can form a total rubbery mess in your airbrush

Man this sucks. Getting down to the final last two months and problem after problem. Paint bubbling, parts falling in the dirt while wet, and breaking parts.

Hope to have a better update soon.

Yup me too.Spraying with acrylics no problems.Try enamel paint or lacquer and trouble.IT will be in the high 70s up here this weekend.I have 2 dehumidifiers going in my basement and it is still not enough. I have also had several very small photoetched parts launch themselves across my modelling room never to be seen again.

Well made some ya of the nice weather this weekend. Wasted Saturday and half of today but got some good painting done. Not sure I would have gotten more done since I am running out of primer and paint. The store I get it from is over by Work so kinda gotta wait until tomorrow to get more anyway. Will update with some photos soon.

Hey guys still alive and kicking on this build. Got some nice weather today. So working hard core on this. Mostly masking that’s got me in the slow lane. If all goes well I should be done completely with the blue one as far as building and painting.
Still working on the fin funnels for the red one. Also started on the HWS parts for the red one.

Will have some photos for sure tonight.

Up next the right arm. Unfortunately I got in a bit of a hurry and forgot to photograph the parts after painting.
