Hi guys, sorry i've been a bit busy with work so haven't had a chance to get much done but I should have the last of the changes on the arms finished this weekend.

I'm making a slight size decrease on the shoulders and adding in some detail to the inner piece as right now it's just an flat corner. Should help to reduce the print cost on shapeways.

Here's a another variant I was working on with a kotobukiya missile unit 36, i'm temped to borrow some parts from a riptide...

This is so cool! I can't decide if I like the cannon underslung or on the shoulder. Exceptional work! And thank you for posting the shapeways link.

Question: How are the 3d printed parts different in terms of painting? Do they hold paint well/look cohesive? That has been my biggest concern about 3D printed parts.
Question 2: Have you updated your shapeways profile with the changes you were talking about in this last post?

Thank you so much for keeping us posted!

I like the work you've been doing with these arms.

I am also in San Diego and I talked to someone who does work for me when I need something that is beyond my capabilities (mostly cleaning stuff and assembly from Forgeworld orders), he said that someone else was looking into the Disney Infinity Hulkbuster figure for its arms. It's a cheaper alternative, but I like that you retained the aesthetic from the Tau range, it's cool to see the shoulders from the KX-139, on the KV-128.

I've put the latest version on the shop. The parts from shapeways are printed using resin so if you do a coat of primer it will hold paint just the same as plastic.

I painted mine with acrylic paints & citadel washes.

that looks incredible! I think that the arms make it a whole lot more menacing and gives it a imposing presence! excellent job on the paint as well :D :D

So glad to see these for purchase now

For the following model design do I only need:

The Storm Mech Shoulers and Storm mech lower arms?

amazing !
Now I really wanna get a SS, even if its just for it to sit on the shelf and wait for better rules in the future.
Could you please post here a link where I can get a pair of the missile arms for myself ?
