Starting the Shoulder Armor

I haven’t been getting enough done on this project lately, so I started work on a new part: the shoulder armor for the left arm. I started by using the Blender model to create five cross-sections of the part – I then transferred these cross-sections to styrene, cut them out and assembled them, and filled in with clay – then laid on a 2mm thick layer of rolled epoxy putty to create the part itself.

The resulting part still needs work but it seems like a good start. Compared with the method I used to make the head I think this way is significantly easier and faster. (This is a technique that was used in the Gundam Scratchbuild Manual to make a head part…)
