This is my second try on this kit. The first can be found here
I love the way it turned out, but sadly it is front heavy and has fallen several times.
Which has caused considerable breakage and other damage.
So, I want to try and recreate it, except a little more balanced this time

Got the subassemblies done, and partially cleaned up.
They are getting primed now, to check for more seam work, then it will be time to slap it together.

Now I have some seams to work on.

Ok, small setback.
The first pass with the putty, I hadn't dug out all the stuff I usually use to texture and didn't like the results.
So I tried to go back over it with another thin coat and went too thick with it.

So, back to the drawing board.

Got the putty on the legs done, then added the frill.
Still a little more putty work to do there, then on to painting.

Hey! Guess what?
I changed my mind :-)
Decided not to try and recreate my first paint job, and went in a different direction.

I sat down, and was going to paint some stripes and some accent scales on the kit.
But as I was looking at it, and seeing the way the light played off the texture,
I had another idea.
Now I am working with some watercolors to just add in some subtle coloring
here and there.
Just trying to fill it in, and give it some life without overpowering anything.

A little detail work. Think I am almost done now.
A little pastel work should finish this off.

Since I change my mind on the new build. I decided to repair the original kit.
Here is a quick look at the rebuilding of the broken fingers.
Heated up a paper clip and sunk it into the hand for an armature.
Then a little aves to form the fingers.
Now I need to make the claws.

Looks ok with some paint on them. Now I just need to paint the claws and finish the base.
