Looks great so far Marc. I can't wait to see it with the binders on.

Are you going to be keeping it on the provided stand?

Yes, for practical reasons first, since it won't be able to stand on its own with the extra stuff, and also because I love the majestic look of the Fiver in flight (like on the artwork).

Ah, I guess I should have worded my question better. I was wondering if you were going to use the supplied stand, or replace it with a different one. I know from my hrairoo that the stand doesnt really leave much for posability.

Kind of back on this project. Finalizing the backpack details and the attachment point:

Worked on the "tail", not sure what it's supposed to be (it's a part of the head armor in the Fiver MA mode) but whatever...

It will attach to the original Hrairoo back skirt (I decided to keep it) on the red dots. I'll build something small to connect them.

Sorry for the pinkish pics.
I'm not done on detailing it, btw.

Those little triangles made me think of the Quebely's funnels for a second.  Looks pretty good.  When is the primer finally going to hit the whole thing? :lol:

Wow, Nice work, all of that detail for a 1/144 scale model. I look forward to seeing the first test assemble of the pieces.

Keep up the great work!  8)

Wow, the underside of that skirt looks fantastic! (insert your own dirty joke here  :evil:) Seriously, nice detailing. It's nice to have my old AoZ companion back in the build.

It's getting hard to keep track of all the various parts of your build, and what it's all going to look like. Any chance of a test-fit shot anytime soon?

Looks great! The backpack adds balance to the large arms. It looks better attached than it does separate. Now, if it's not too much, can we get a rear view?  :P

Huh, you're lucky I'm an update whore :razz:

The connector:

I wish the tail would have expanded a bit more laterally but I think the binders should correct that. Hopefully.
