HGUC rx-78-2 Gundam mods: Let's Implementing core block systems (Part 2: torso)
Okay, today we do the mods at torso parts.
This is the joint shoulder which is movable. We need to remove the inner part (shown on picture) since we want to fit the core block into the torso.
For torso parts, we need to remove the male and female connector.
A closer look.
You need to file the circled part so core block can be inserted firmly
Remember, the back part of torso must be refined.
Long time ago, learn from ZD how to reuse the the number plate at runner as pla-plate. this will be used to hold the shoulder joint.
This how the both plates assembled.
Yeah... Polycaps k (used as neck joint), you need to cut the lower portion. Don't worry, you still can assemble it because there extra hold at the neck of rx-78 torso. U will know if u have HGUc Rx-78-2
Since the male and female connector are removed, I use clip to hold the torso before the glue dried.
Painted the inner side with black for more realistic look
Complete the head and arms as usual......
