After looking at all those cool suits with this contest going on, I wanted to show what I have accomplished (in like half a year?
) This hasn't got anyting to do with the contest, just to make sure you know.
Well, here it is (front part still needs finishing touch):
That white thing is supposed to turn into a backpack. Won't be touching that for a while since it won't be for this suit. Thus far this suit has had 4 or 5 versions
Luckily I made sure to not cut/glue anything before I was absolutely sure. Maybe I should have taken a picture of the lower part too, since it shows an attempt af making it poseable with joints (same as the right shoulder.) However, I'll be scratchbuilding another lower part, the old one makes his waist too big, in my opinion, and I don't like chopping things up unnecessary. The shoulder joints will be cut off and placed more to the back, like here http://www.advancedtautactica.com/viewtopic.php?t=8097
As you can see the neck part is also inspired by that concept art. By the way, I really can't wait till jik continues building it
I've decided on the color already, it's screaming to be white! My army is traditional vomit brown, but it still needs to be white. (I might be changing this opinion in the months to go
Oh, this is my first suit.
Edit: just noticed XV82 might look strange. I'll look into the naming later.
