I thought I'd share a little project I'm doing in between large ones.I've been building models for a long time but I'm new at figures so don't expect to be amazed and feel free to give advice!

The kit is Industria Mechanicka's "Sasha the Welding Girl"



The kit comes in three different scales; I picked 1/24. Here are all the parts:



Even at this scale it's TINY! The detail is great, however!

Because I'm incapable of building a model without changing things around I decided to remove Sasha's thong straps and reshaped the hips a little bit to get a more realistic looking figure:





I think she looks better that way and I've done my part to help rid the world of gratuitous thong straps too. :

More to come...

Either you're very good, or I'm just not looking in the right places, but I can't find any sign of re-working!

The best mod is one that looks like it came that way!

The modifications were not that big; I scraped off the thong straps and reshaped a hips a bit (taking off material on one side and adding to the other)

This is not my build (and is really well painted, BTW) but it will give y'all an idea of what I changed:

I guess after painting your mods will become more obvious.

Nice mods. I'm thinking of buying one of these kits too.

Very nice, and something a little different. I like these figures .... where did you get it from Jason?

Industria Mechanika, a lot of very interesting and very high quality kits there. She is available in 1/32 as well.
