This is amazing.  The binder mod changes everything...I think this is the Qubeley in its purest form...I mean it really convey the essence of Q (to me at least).  All the details pushes it over the top.

Karma +1 from me.  ;)

Regarding soldering iron, there are more sophisticated models with temperature control for the finer work on PCB's.  I don't know what temperature you need for the wielding purpose and whether it's covered by those models, but it might be worth a look and save some time.  ;)

It's been a long time!  I can see this project taking a long time, look at all the modifications!  The parts that I really like are back of the head, the tail binder, and the lower leg.  Those modifications are great.  About those spikes, are they funnels?  I don't think the Q is going to ram anyone right?   :lol:

I really want to say something meaningful about you overcoming all the challenges and come out with such a nice model, but I haven't really tried one of these legendary (poor) kits so my comments will come out pretty hollow.  But either way, good work!  8)

Love the fat rods in the roll-cage, the bulkier the better.  I'm interested to see what you're going to do with the feet, are you going to put those HUGE wheels there?

Duel of the dogs??  :lol:

I'm not sure what the exact phrase is offhand, but the whole thing looks like more than the sum of its parts.
Synergy?  ;)

Looks great Mike.  I really like the lighthouse, the texture is great and knowing that you hand-crafted each of the panel makes it even better.  The diorama really conveys a story, one wonders what's hiding inside the lighthouse... :naughty: :lol:

That's an amazing piece of work.  Congrats to your trophies.

I have to say the diorama and the modified tank captured my attention more than the Dom, and that's not to say the Dom isn't impressively done too.  Well I guess you know what I mean...  ;)

You Italian modelers are a talented bunch!

Well I don't know too much about figures, but this looks really nice.  I'd say you captured the essence of the sculpt.  Have you tried cropping the picture and add some sort of background to it?  I'd say you can fool a number of people into thinking it's a real person.   :-)

Another great piece.  The layout reminds me of other pieces from you (a suit hiding behind some structure).  I think it's the big gun, the hand "shield", and the shape of the suit, somehow it really reminded me of Dorvak.  As for the build/finish/weathering, it's top-notch as usual.  That piece of rubble on the ground (looks like a donut!) is really interesting.

This is a very interesting piece.  It's sort of like those SD designs restored to full scale.  :lol:

Great base too!  And great pose to take advantage of it.

Hey Kevin, I'm one of those people that was out of commission until now. :lol: It's great to see your finished diorama with so much resin and sculpting. 

Hmm let me see where to start.  I think the most amazing thing about this piece is that you sculpted the beast from scratch.  I think it's really well done, capturing the organic and the "monster of the day" feel.  The overall diorama construction is probably the next best. The overall layout is interesting, and your hard work definitely shows.  I agree with FF's comment on the amount of rubble.  But hey, I never cared about realism when I watched those super robot shows.  The more over the top the better.  :lol: I really like Godannar too.  I think by itself it would be a very nice piece already to have it fighting the beast is like icing on a cake. 

The only aspect I don't dig too too much is the use of all those revoltech and other scale figures in the scene.  I think there are just too many of them and kind of distract from the central fight.  As much as I like these giant robots (I have a lot of the revoltechs too), I have to say this time less is probably more for me. 

However!  If you have the revoltech Patlabor units I think it would be a very nice scene.  ;)

That's great for 2 week's effort, you must work fast.   :-)

The paint job and assembly are all very well executed.  The "eyes" look pretty dark when the light is off, pretty hard to see.  And when the light is on I can see a bit of light leak coming from the side of the sensor.  Did you paint the interior black?

Hope it meets your approvals.

It totally does!!  :lol:

It looks really good, the metal tubing is very nice (where did you get that?).  I think it can benefit with some shoulder pad or some sort of body armour to make it even more post-apocalyptic.

Nice use of the surface mount LED.  These are extremely tricky to handle.  I tried it back in the days, very difficult to solder.

Very nice!  I say headless is a good choice.  Makes it stand out from the usual layout of robots of this type.  I think the torso is a bit too "round" as it is because the rest of the design is so angular, just my initial thought. 

That book looks awesome, must have more interesting designs than his website

Seems like you still have a bit to do, but definitely see the light at the end of the tunnel assembly-wise.  Maybe next time we should shift the deadline by a factor of scale3 just to be fair.   :geek: :lol:

Hey Chris, too bad you can't finish this in time for the deadline.  But it's totally understandable as it exists in a totally different plane in terms of complexity.  Seeing your consistent and good effort is very inspiring.  If there's a "most impressive WIP" category I think you'll win hands down.   :lol:

So based on your estimate, how much more in terms of scratch-building do you have left?

Time to get some bling to hang around my neck.  :razz:

3, 7, and 10 could be useful for a variety of projects.

A "simple" diversion eh?  I really like the overgoose, it's worked out surprisingly well.  Similar to what is said by clee-cm, I think a slightly darker red would be even more red baron.   :-)
