I’m feeling much more confident about making the deadline than I did on Sunday. The only major painting left is another color on the head and the sides of the knees. (You can see in this pic that they are still unpainted. That should all be set tomorrow, and then I can finish up the touch-ups and let the paint dry a little bit before I clear coat on Friday. Saturday will be panel lining, decaling, and flat coating. It should be dry enough to handle on Sunday which will allow me to take the final pictures for this incarnation.
Once the pressure of the contest is off, I’ll be able to focus on the modifications to the second torso, waist skirts and booster and hopefully will have the entire dual build done the following week.
