  1. Filing down spring edges with tamiya grease worked ok for me..
  2. File the sharp edges on the ends that spring down and add a little grease otherwise the shoulder will get stuck rotating in one direction, if it doesnt happen now, it will later you have been warned lol

    The eyes will take a lot of taking apart if you wait. and the teeth some amount of taking apart I would get what you plant to do as soon as you can, especially the eyes. The fingers can be done anytime
  4. File the sharp edges of the spring and add some grease, the shoulder rotation will more than likely bind in one direction without this, you have been warned
  5. Hi All, Builder from UK here, through Hachette but model is the same, posting some of the custom mods I have done as Ive been building it, I do not supply or make these mods, but I can give some pointers to anyone who wants to give something similar a go. Its also useful for you guys to see what it looks like in a more advanced stage. Heres how he looks so far up to issue 62 in Hachette parts. The gun I believe is also supplied through Agora at some point..? Now on to some of the mods I have done. The teeth are replacements from ModelModz and are off the shelf ready to fit, I just painted mine a bit to weather them. I have also weathered the metalwork with Citadel Nuln oil. First the gun, I opened it up and fitted some home made electronics, and a laser, this can be seen in action with this video at the end. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdIWEHlZnqo I made a minigun, from a toy softgel gun from wish which is the main body, and the barrel and electronics I built from scratch using alu tubes, arduino etc. And here is a video showing this in action https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uoItMnAk8IQ You will notice in the vids the head is turning, this is another custom mod, using a servo in the neck and arduino, which controls the head turning and mouth opening, I wanted mind to be automated rather than remote controlled. One thing that I sacrificed is the moving eyes, I opted to make my own larger eyes which I made from chrome balls and a lathe, filled with resin and a fibre optic, lit using the standard LEDS. Final mod that I have done so far, is I cut the circle cover off the cranium, and added a alu piece that I made from a small alu torch inner The chip is from a piece of plastic and when you take it out the thing powers off. Loads more vids on my channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-_VH5TWel4tPLz3r2ukRSA/ Thanks for reading, some of this nnot in chrono order, hence why the last posts show the original teeth etc.
