hi, I'm starting work on my Mk-II AEUG Vers. 2 and I was wondering if you can help me out, I saw that in fichtenfoo's tutorial, he cut several pegs in the gundam head in order to slide the  eyes and face mask in, I was lookig at inside the Mk-II head, and I don't know what to do.

Those pics are somewhat large to view it all at once and get a good idea of what I'm looking at. Can you shrink them a lot? maybe to 500pixels wide.

Yeah, those will definitely need cut. You may wanna dremmel out the pegs those would attatch to as well. I've also been cutting off the forehead "lens" from the eyes so that it slides in from the front. That makes sliding the mask in easier. You'll also have to cut away a good portion of the polycap holders. Basically pre-build it and try sliding it in. You'll see that gets stuck and will need trimmed. Don't be afraid to gouge out the whole head. You'll just need to "fill" it when painting's done and all is slid in with milliput, magic sculpt, or aves apoxy sculpt to make a place for the polycap. If done right that won't be necessary and I've never had to do it.

thank you fichtenfoo, I just sawed away the red pegs and also cut away some of the red plastic, the picture will tell you better than I can, but the face fits perfect now when the two head halves are closed.
