The first thing is you need your bitz and tools. i used these
Thats a tactical marine.
Tools; vice, razor saw, cheap and expensive superglue, clippers, drill, triange and flat files and an xacto knife.
The most important and most obvious is plasticard, i used 1mm.
When i say do it roughly i find it easier to do the main neatening when it is together, the only exeption is on the arms which are fiddly is holdind across the body.
cut the legs here with a razor saw and vice, insert plasticard inbetween where you have cut.
clip these down roughly but dont bother filling yet.
Next cut the top section of the legs and, again insert plasticard spacers,
again clip them down.
Clip the top down so the ball joint is flat.
Clip round the plasticard so it fits into the body.
Then glue and line up the body. then glue a square of plasticard to the bottom and clip round it.
slice and clip this down roughly again.
this should be filed properly as it will be arkward to do after assembly.
Next do the same with the lower half of the arms, try to use details in the models arms as a guide when you are re glueing then. again file these properly.
File this properly for the same reasons as the arms.
This is the time to assemble your model. i recommend in these steps
Glue the body to the legs
The head(un converted) to the body
Now add the head and a small spacer to the side of the arms holdind the bolter(to counter the spacer in its lower arm) ignore the one on the other shoulder as i did this wrong. i later dropped the camera so couldnt change it.
Now glue on the arms, correcting the angles in them as nessecary(this is why i use super glue, it is easy to remove and restick)
Glue to a base.
This is done and the one i did for the tuturial turned out like this.
Hope you liked this, its quite quick if you do it enough and one marine now takes me 30mins to make.
post your own models and rate this please
EDIT; removed optional before Finishing, i dont reccomend not doing this
