I decided to built the hulk suit first.
Straight forward build, though some skill is required.The fit is good but I would recommend pinning.
Pinning is always recommended as it aids in helping to glue the parts + being sturdier.( I use 1mm stainless steel rods to pin ). Just minor flash & some minute bubbles found & both are easily fixed.
I decided to convert the pose and do a mini diorama. Terrain is made of plastic sprue & usb cable wire. I imagined an mobile suit ) infantry support patrol in a urban setting ( ala Titanfall ) . Suit is manouvering down a slope of girders & concrete.
All the joints were cut & separated , then pinned to allow maximum flexibility ( I even drilled & pinned the elbow & wrist ) You need a lot of skill & patience to separate the knees as you can easily damage the parts. I like the resin they have used as it is easily shaped.
Flat cable was used for detail. Damaged milliput extra armour , GS baggage & paper straps.
Though more eye candy , I did not put hydraulic cables on the outside as I always felt that they would be too fragile in a firefight.
I added aerials & may add an anti personnel m/c gun. I will glue the hatch semi open to reveal the windscreen underneath.
The model reminds me of a Mechwarrior Bushwacker & I would use it as a Primaris Space Marine Dreadnaught also. Can't wait to see the heavier version.
I put size comparisons here now
See last pics .
