Kshatriya: Arms

I had one hell of a fever going on this week so I've done very little in terms of the Kshatriya.

Clearly the assembly that attaches the binder arms to the shoulder guard needs to be larger. Otherwise, I tried to remove what the HG model did to the arms and went with Katoki's version ... that is, ignore the block-like assembly that holds the binder arms to the shoulder armour and instead go with the original illustration version. Because of this, the mesh will lack some of the maneuvering ability the HG arm has -- though I don't like the way the real model looks because of it (it swings out like it's disjointed -- not my cup of tea). I cut into the upper arms a little more and added the ball shoulder similar to the Sinanju's, though I wanted it to be further up into the shoulder armour as it sits way too low at the moment -- making the arms look too long. I also somewhat redid the elbow section to look more like the Sinanju's whilest keeping with the Kshatriya's over ball shape joint.

I haven't fixed what I didn't like about the waist portion yet, however.

Kshatriya: Shoulders

Now that golden week has pretty much come to an end, it's time to get back to some work. Starting on the arms and, as usual, the shoulder section is up. I was going against what was done on the 1/144 scale model because the shoulder area, particularly where the binder arms rotate, seems to differ from Katoki's illustrated version -- ever so slightly. I've bulged and rounded them slightly.

Kshatriya: Waist 2

I didn't think I'd be able to do much during the holidays and I was right. I've been sluggish at getting to the waist and it shows, as I've yet to remove even errors on parts of the body that I made thus far. I dropped the stomach and chest into the waist a little more than the plastic model goes though I haven't addressed the gold pipes as Katoki seemed to have drawn them less prominently on the waist of the illustration. Looks like I ripped the side waist armor in the rear too...kinda weird.
