More progress on this bad boy! I have finished up almost all of the backpack, with only the laser tubes on the booster packs (the 4 huge tubes that come off the sides of the backpack) and some small detail parts here and there.

Now that this is all finished up next will be finishing the arms and the fuel pods.  I have noticed that even with all of the pinning and bolts and screws, a lot of the parts are going to have to be assembled at the end with epoxy glue.  I noticed that once both booster packs were on the backpack the weight was still pulling a few areas apart. Nothing major, but enough to warrant some gluing at the end.

This is utterly rediculous. Do you think we could have a person standing next to it to get a sense of scale, as I fear at the moment it may be bigger than my house. I wonder if you could get in it...

How long do you expect something like this to take?! :twitch:

Bravo, you crazy model making machine.

I feel like I want to give the Ex-S a hug.  I'm pretty sure It'll be big enough once its done for one.   ^_^

Meh, I made a kid that big in 10 minutes and you've seen her!

Just kidding Matt, this is awesome sauce modelling. That thing is nosebleed big. Needs more icecream!

Another progress.  Nice! 

Is it just me or does this WIP starts to look more like a construction than a model building?

Progress on the massive EX-S has continued! I was able to get the beam rifle assembled and mounted, as well as 3 of the 4 beam cannons that mount on the backpack.

The 4th needs to have some heating done to straighten out the mounting block due to a bit of warping. Over all this build is looking super awesome so far, and I can’t wait to get the assembly done so I can start working on painting it. :)

That is so awesome! Looks like you're almost done with assembly!  Could you take a before and after pic of the warped piece and what you do to straighten it out? :) it would be much appreciated!

Yea, I can do that.

All I will do to fix it is put the part in some boiling water until soft, then straighten it out over the part it connects to. I'll take pictures of it for you though. :)

This kit is huge  :twitch:

I guess the guy you are building this for, should have a big house.... otherwise he´ll have to sleep outdoors and the model in his room  :razz:

What now? Painting?....... i´ll keep an eye on this.

Still have assembly to do. The arms, shoulders, and fuel pods all still need to be built.

Surprisingly, for how big the kit is, it really wouldn't take up that much room in order to display it.  I mean obviously it would take up more room then a MG kit, but its not that bad.

Matt, I know its a bit premature, but have you thought of a color scheme for this, or has your client thought of one?

We've settled on the red/white color scheme. I'll of course add a little flare to it, but I am pretty excited. Almost all of the 1/35 EX-S I have seen built have been painted blue and white.

YES, YES!!!!

That's my favorite of the variations.  I did my MG S in Red White, with light grey stripes on the white.

Dude, awesome.  I didn't think I could be more excited about this project, but now I totally am!

Awesome color choice. Love the red white.  :yeah:
I assume we will see the perfect Matt red again?  ^_^  Maybe some cool new stripe pattern?
Well done. This wip is looking great!
