[WIP] MG Epyon Part 1

The start of another kit!! I had already finished snap fitting it quite sometime ago and left it back in the box. Will be doing some minor mods to improve overall look, saw some mods online and will attempt to copy them.

Kit is China copy of MG Epyon, so surface is not as smooth as the original, see what I can do with this kit.
From this picture, you can see the head is sitting quite low. Image from

Here goes the neck extension. Neck joint sawed into 2, stacked pla-plates in between and re-attached the sawed off joint. Head now able to bend down more, appearance more menacing.

And a mod that I saw online that I really liked, hands into CLAWS!
I used epoxy putty to lengthen the fingers, shape them roughly into the shape that you want, leave it to harden then slowly reshape it as desire.
Took me a few rounds of slicing and sanding to get it to my wanted shape.

Chin extended as well, also using epoxy putty.

Some simple pla-plating on various parts of the kit. And clearing the ridiculous amount of seamlines on the whip.

Thanks for looking!!!
