This is my WIP for FFF's KKKKK. Basically, I'm just going to stick to original Kampfer look but I shall enhance the overall look to make it a bit bulky. Details will be added here and there and some color scheme will come to play in order to provide a visual impact on the overall look.

What's done so far:

Shoulder spike mod - I sharpen the spikes by adding a 2mm styrene sheet and file it to shape.


Shoulder armor - so far I've only added minus mold

Arms - Minus mold added


Chest - A little detail added. I made a hole at the side of the pilot hatch and made an 'indentation' at the bottom of the hatch.

Crotch/groin - add minus mold at the side of the front groin area. I also drilled detailing holes at the corners of the front groin area. The hip joint was covered using Kotobukiya's flat thruster bells.


The thigh - right now I just snap them up.

Looks good so far, the minus molds on the arm are nice.

What area do you want to bulk up?  I take it that you will use the original paint scheme as well?

Major Blah,

Yes, I will use the original paint scheme. Most likely I will bulk up the lower leg part and the upper arm.

The front portion of the feet will also receive the same treatment. I'm planning on having an angular shaped feet.

Minor update:

I modify the upper arm by giving it a bit more angles and make it a bit bulky.



The feet modification



The current mock-up build



The 'toes' are extended by adding 2 1mm plastic sheet

Update:

Knee cap modification - making the knee cap angular. I use styrene strips as the guide and later apply some 2 part epoxy putty. Then, I sand them to desired shape.



Add some details at the back of the head

Minimal update:

Bulking up the lower arm by lining up bits of 1mm styrene sheet. Later I will apply some AB putty to cover up the gaps.

Update:

Applied some A+B epoxy putty onto the lower arm. Later I will sand and fill the imperfections with grey auto putty.



Some modification on the shoulder joints. I drilled the 'holes' on the shoulder joint.



I fill in the holes using the long out-of-production MAX Factory's Brass pipe (small size). Superglued them into place and in some cases, I fill in the gaps with A+B epoxy putty... just to be sure.

Update:

Focusing on the torso. Add more details to the upper torso. I don't really like the use of cloth mesh for the energy cable that runs along the abdomen. I decide to have an energy cable that similar to Zakus. I use Max Factory's brass pipes for the energy cable upgrade. The energy cable shall be painted later.




Lower arm
I use grey auto putty to smooth out the uneven surfaces.


Begin the initial work on the angular-shaped feet.

Minor update:

Minor modification on the shotgun.


Add some details behind the thigh; where an auxillary thruster is located.


Added some detail on the rear thruster bells.


The joint shoulder and torso joint is covered using a thruster bell which was cut approximately 4-5mm. Shoulder mobility is limited now but the joint looks more rigid. [Highlighted in the red box]
