My current project is taking the inner frame from a Perfect Grade Wing Zero Custom (bought during the legendary Amazon Gundam Clearance for $25) and making an entirely new mobile suit design around it. This MS is called the Pandora. So far I've gotten the chest, crotch and bum armor just about finalized shape-wise. Here's some pics and more details:

Pandora is really impressive. To realize you have to scratch build mechanically functional equiment really adds a level of precisions and care above straight scratch building.

Thanks guys!

Here's the latest shots. THe whitish glops on the sides of the legs is that "shapelock" plastic that softens in hot water. That stuff is PERFECT for brackets to connect armor.
