I'll be using .080 styrene for the body and .125 for the ribs and inner base support when needed. So far I've started with the powercell, heres my step by step progress of this particular piece.
base of the powercell
I like to draw out my measurements before I add the pieces. It helps me better position each piece.
I made sure to do the angled powercell ribs
made sure to taper the powercell box like the hero packs
Comparison shot I made sure to closely match the uneven powercell spacing and angle of the ribs.
I'll post some more progress as I go along. I hope to capture all the detail I can down to the angle of the ribs, tapers, texture, nail marks etc...it will take some time but I think it could be done. Any comments and or input is very welcome.
