    Thank you for your interest :thumbsup

    Initial Drawings for Feet layout.

    However, the measurements are subjected to change. Will be using a T-Type plat-from for the base to build around. Using Cardboard. Altering and Finding the right measurements for both visual and scaling.

    The Absolute bases with be used from the paperkura aspect. As models then to differ as well as not offering some views of the part.

    Cardboard Mock of the drawing. with my shoe ill be using on top. Its currently at 15cm. but it will be a total of 25cm when plank struts are added to the base.

    However from the front. IT seems a bit to narrow. as the heel compared to the toe seems to be much broader. The Back with is currently at 20cm...im thinking perhaps 25 will make it more help with the visual. then taper it back to 20 at the end. as the heel in the model shows its almost diamond shape.

    I have a sculpt of a gundam head I keep planning on molding on my shelf.

    So seeing this inspires me to take action.

    I will watch this build carefully.

    @ Kialna : :D...That would certianly be worth seeing.
    Alpha Proto : .....*suddenly feels under pressure..*:ninja

    In any event I reworking my design for the Feet. For a while I didnt understand why chivelee kept the feet support as a block . Then it was while I mock making mine i realised why. Its much more practical. and easier to manage. It also feels that that the angle of the toe/foot cover is easier to get. Unless you good at math to work it out to get an angle your comfortable with. So I decided to look into something more simlar to his.

    Im going to keep true and keep it simple. Using paint cans and flat boards on top and below, with bag straps in between as well as for the shoe.
    ITs late at the moment to work power tools but i gathered up the materials already to have it done by tommrow.
