Chibi MKII- Engine (Posted 2nd March 2009)
Well the engine is finally done! wooooooooo
this was alot of stress as everything was sooo small and i was having problems curving certain shapes as they aren't meant to be bent, that was pain! TT_TT and then having the shapes not sticking togather DX ahhhhh... don't really know why put maybe of the paper as the tape took off most of the colour and then once you stick another piece on it sticks!
oh well least i finished it in the end woooo and hopefully shall be sticking it to the rest of the body soooooon XD
Chibi MKII- Hip (Posted 1st March 2009)
OK just finished the hip for the small thing lol
this took 5 hours to make! plus the whole of Death Note the movie O_O
^^;; well the main reason for that was the shapes of the objects, they wear really hard to find the correct one as all the shaped seemed the same, i was at a point of just sticking anything together lol but luckily i didn't and at the same time found a missing piece which i forgot to cut and that was a piece which goes on the hip! so that was lucky!
Anyhoo heres a 5 hour work... now the body is done 8) wooooo!
Chibi MKII- Chest (Posted 1st March 2009)
wooooo on to the chest already YAY!!!! almost there me thinks... I WISH!!!
this-was the most hardest part i have had up to now, due to different colours, some have like almost the same shapes, and then folding objects that is as small as one half of the nail on your little finger and sticking it down! dear lord this was a challenge for sure!
Though its finished i not too happy with the out come of the body but i don't think i will be remaking it lol, there is a few mistakes on the body, like the two shades of blue don't join too well, i have had to alter certain slots to allow other sections to be able to slot in, so aint too bad i guess...
well here we have it... 4 hours of my time on a chest LOL... this is time consuming here XD
Chibi MKII- Head (Posted 1st March 2009)
OK next day I have decided to be like a normal person and work from the top! as this may help me more as into how to join everything together later on!!!
so... what was it like?... make the head wasn't too bad as the shapes and patterens where easy to find and work ot as there isn't a repeat of the same shape XD though the main problem was bending the paper and card as this is like a hand size model, the paper was too hard to bend to a point as you don't want to crease it too much or the colour will goo DX what a pain!
But hell got there in the end 83 ... once everything was stick and shaped the next thing was just slotting everything together 8D its good how everything slots together perfectly i still choose to stick them down using double sided tape... just in case it falls apart during minamicon XD i don't fancy sitting down for ever refixing a lil thing lol even if i love it so much haha!
So here you go! a head which took approx 3-4 hours to make...
Chibi MKII- Feet (Posted 1st March 2009)
OK thought I'll make a journal of this damn gundam which is slowly taking over my life lol before i lose all these progress pics and then take me lke 2 years to find them again like an actual costume of mine! argh!
Anyways!!! I first started making the feet as i believed it was the easiest of all to make, though to begin with i decided to cut up everything and just make it, but i realised that didn't really help! so i had to read ... well more like look as the tutorial/instructions are in japanese i spent hours siting down looking at pictures and trying to work out with object looked lke the one in the photo to glue together.
And 3 hours later... i give you the unfinished feet XD i gave up after 3 hours but im half way through it! wooo... just the feet lol
