Transferred the blueprint onto MDF sheets.

Pile of parts and pieces.
Image

Gluing the pieces together to form the skeleton to sculpt on.

Coming together quickly!

Thought I'd post link to another thread I started over at the replica prop forum which shows a bit more detail in the step by step process of my MkII build.

^It's from the Pilot Disk.

Excellent! This will go into the reference folder for the Monitor Box. Hard to get really good images of that panel with all the buttons and stuff. It changes quite a bit from drawing to drawing as well.

Any other interesting Metal Gear images on the Pilot Disk?

In this Pilot Disk image, was this a screen that you could play game music or something? Did something animate in the "L" and "R" areas?

Yes, it played 3 tunes, One Night In Neo Tokyo and two others. Also, yes, there was some left and right channel waves displayed when tunes were playing. Nice Metal Gear model by the way. Looking forward to seeing the finished product!

Perfect! Cool to see that that section open up to accept a disk. I might try to replicate that down the road if I keep upgrading his capabilities.

Also cool to get to see his little arm in use again. Even in the menu selection!

It's also super fantastic to see those L and R graphs. In some of the artwork and the blueprints they have a block of unreadable text in that area and I wasn't looking forward to guessing what was written there. That digital display is much cooler too. I'll put a a few bar leds in there for overall "robot" effect but probably not make them move... until later. It would be neat to have them slide along with whatever sounds he emits.

Still sanding and shaping the body and head to perfection. Tough to get all the little bumps and divots evened out. I want him to look like a piece of real mass produced equipment and not just a lousy fan-made thing.

I still need to sit down and play through the MSX version to see all the differences.

Got around to putting some more work into this project.

The main torso parts are about as smooth as I can them now.

Image

I started work on the monitor box last night and got quite a bit done.
Image

Image

Image

My table saw prowess is much better on this project. I finally adjusted my tiny table saw to get really accurate cuts finally. No sanding to fit!

Here's the sketch I made to figure out how to approach the construction.
Image

Hopefully soon it will look more like this-

More soon!

Looks awesome, can't wait to see the finished work !
Have you ever worked on some over modeling projects, Nick ? You look very talented, so I guess you have some experience in doing that.
