Another K-2SO...big one

3 posts in this topic

Here's a build I'm doing of K-2SO

I'm using a Jakks Pacific Big Fig and adding parts to make it better, giving it a better paint job and changing the pose.

 

After a lot of sanding and filing of the seams I gave it a coat of primer. Then I got busy with the lathe and machined some aluminium rod down to replace the hinges and joints.

The first picture shows the replacement joints I made and then there's a couple of pictures of the old joints cut off and replaced with the new ones.

A little update.

There's a fair bit of plastic surgery required to fit these new aluminium joints.

Replacing some of the missing edging, trapping the joint.
