ok so i got the idea originally from the karman race in the miniatures range AT43after buying one i hated how they only came in a 28mm range initially i constructed just the face  later built a wire frame and used tamiya quick type putty to build up from there

i later constructed the chest area out of an old inhaler and pla plate, im now in the process of using epoxy green putty to make the details

That's some crazy-good sculpting. I've never been able to get the hang of green stuff, myself.

its actually quite easy  usually i use just a little bit more yellow putty than the blue when im mixing  and using vaseline or chapstick on your fingers cuts down on the finger prints   also proper tools go a long way the gamesworkshop sculpting tool works fantastically for putty although the one end of it does need to be sharpened a bit other than that it works awesomely.

ok so i decided to scrap the idea or arm gauntlets when i finally fitted them they were too oversized and bulky so i decided to sculpt the forearms and added straps and goggles to him.

i used kotobukiya hands for this scultp and put knuckles on him instead i got  the idea from the ghost in the shell 2 in the opening sequence when he punched out that geisha robot.

i'm currently shaping the feet and have been thinking  of going with like a combat style boot with a thumb. although i need some ideas for the back pack and torso area cus i want it to look more technical  and maybe add a cigar to his mouth
