Rather than posting for every slight change I saved some photos for a bigger post.
After the hands I went on with highening the backpack. Because of the shoulder plates it still doesn't really stand out, but on normal suits it will give it a more aggressive look.
Next is lengthening the legs. Comparing the new suit with the old one I'm surprised of the similarities. Aside from the obvious changes like the details, waist and upper legs the measurements are exactly the same. Even though that is really awesome, the jetpack is still too low for my liking and the legs too short. So just as the previous suit in this thread I lengthened this one's legs as well. To make sure it's still strong enough to use in a game I used metal rods as the core of the legs and used plastic sheets to create the shape. That was a lot more work than I thought, so for the next suit I might come up with a different way.
Gaps were filled. Also I decided on using two shoulder guards. Using one kind of looks strange, I'm used to the old suits. For normal suits I will use no guards, so the old and new don't look too different. For the iridium armor suit however I think they are fitting.
Some time later somehow a finger broke off. Seriously, the trouble the finecast commander has given me up till now, as well as its state, really makes me think I bought a fake one. That suit will have (need) a major overhaul, so look forward to it
I made him a hill to stand on as well. I'm trying to make every suit from now on look like a proper piece on its own, so I try to spend some more time on bases as well!
There are still some gaps to fill and magnets to add, the finger needs a replacement and the base needs sand added. Really awesome to have a cool looking model so quick!
