WiSSP: 1/144 Kshatriya 2

Did a little more work on this, actually near done testfitting now but I’ll just make this post about the arms head and torso for now. You might notice that some parts have not been cut off the trees but this is because there are a lot of things planned for this kit and honestly, I don’t feel like doing the extra work for something that probably won’t be on the kit anyway (unless it’s for the purpose of getting the basics of the kit done).

There is really nothing interesting to say about the head. The monoeye moves, but I’m going to be replacing it anyway.

The torso is pretty wide and fairly chunky with a more MG-like construction. I’m looking forward to the trim and how well I’ll be able to handle it. I have some new ideas in mind that might yield some interesting results so we’ll see how that goes.

The arms aren’t too complex, though the way they handled the wrist cuffs is…eh to me. Having that split down the middle probably won’t look too great but then again I have been known to be wrong. The arm has a 90 degree range of movement. The biggest turnoff on this area for me is the hands, you don’t get any open are splayed hands with it. Not a huge deal since Kshatriya only has beam sabers for weapons to hold, but still.

The binders are a cakewalk, just repeat the same thing four times. On a final note…

Meet the CRABSHATRIYA.

    CRABSHATRIYA looks tasty XD

    Can’t you use some MG hands on it instead of the regular hands?
    Waiting for more.

    jeppa: nah, but I already know how I’m getting around that little issue.

    WiSSP? Work in Super Slow Progress? Trying to beat me in becoming the slowest modeler on the blogosphere eh? kidding xD

    You know what’s scary about the [K] is that even without half of its body, it is still bigger or about the same size as a full MS so yea… that Final Form Ride mode can be really intimidating!

    Awww, it looks like an adult version of my crabdam (http://gunpla.eu/2010/05/the-return-of-the-crabdam.html). Check out their younger brother (?) too: http://gunpla.eu/2010/04/what-is-this-abomination.html 😉
