[WIP] HG Blu Duel Gundam Part 1

I was digging through some stuff recently when I stumbled upon this kit which I snap fitted some years ago.
HG 1/144 Blu Duel Gundam from the Gundam Seed Stargazer OVA. Actually it's basically a Duel Gundam slapped on with a different set of armor, becomes the Blu Duel Gundam... lol

Back then, my skills were less than basic, seamlines, thick panel lining, stickers and frosting of topcoat.
I will be working on this kit to improve it's overall proportion.

- Head too low
- Whole kit looks short and stubby

Snap fitted kit (pic taken from internet)

What I've done so far is to increase the neck height by 1.2mm

Separated torso into 2 parts, will be increasing height with ball joint

Increased length of thighs by 2.4mm

Dry fitted modded areas to check proportions.

On second thought, I think I will replace the extended thighs and feet with those from the HG Strike Noir Gundam kit.

Thanks for looking!
