A quick no-plan what-so-over mod

Been wanted to mod this cutie since I get my hands dirty with Koto option parts, but things getting out of hand, this kit is much smaller than I expected. Had to brain storming while cutting, sanding, & super glueing.

The reason I pick this kit is to test out how far my mod skill is.


& also wanted to make this kit pose like pic below, very nice pose eh.... Not very confident can do this..


So I started with saw out the side mini skirts. This side could hinder the extra movement that my custom "cut & paste" joints lolz !


Cement it & leave it dried for 2 days at least.


While waiting, start to think how to put the ball joint into this socket-look arm. So I saw it flat, sand the excess left, & making way for the ball joint to fit in.


Cut some length both the ball joint & palm's pegs so that 1 polycap is shared by 2 parts, only the joint part is super-glued inside the polycap. Not sure how long would it last though since polycap ain't hold long.


Test fit with arm, just right length. Nice ~


While mod, I notice that the ball joint alone is so farking short, can't even make a 90 degree bend.

Fark. I said again. Fark.

Had to butcher the peller model for the joint....


"Cut & paste" technique complete. Now gonna leave it a day see how it does when test fit on shoulder part & try to move it around.

I shouldn't do this while I'm out of idea. LoLz.
