Have been working on this since December. Its the old Core Works Hi-Nu conversion kit. I'm building it along the lines of the Evolve 5

Here's the Evolve 5 leg design


Here's what I've done on mine











Here's the shoulders and arms






And here are the wing binders. What I've done is fill up the hole with a thruster and made it to look like the renewal version wing binder.






Minor updates. Painted the leg internals with Alclad Jet Exhaust and Steel



More work done on the legs. Painting mostly done, left the backpack and the wing binders



decaling in progress




miscellaneous picts

Nice looking so far - I've always liked this kinda armor style - not just huge chunks of exterior armor, but strategically placed pieces, that show off the interior detailing...

This is really coming out good. Did you make decals yourself if not who made? Keep posting I can't wait to see finished product.

Some of the warning decals come from leftover waterslides from my other projects but the big ones all come with the kit

That is gorgeous.  The armor mods look really fantastic and I'm impressed with how clean they came out, especially on the legs, but also the decals.  WOW.  That is a great combination of 'flair decals' and 'worning/military markings'  awesome stuff.

Latest Update!! I'm pretty much done but since I'm using epoxy glue, I have to glue the parts together slowly due to the long drying time. Here's some picts of the finished basic MS w/o the back pack and wing binders.

Infact I liked it so much in this form, I half considered leaving the backpack and wing binders off!

The bare resin on the back is on purpose for the glue to have more grip
