Title: Kaydrax - The birth of the Kay Akaanir
Post by: Kay Akaanir on Aug 10, 2017, 07:14 PM
Hi Guys,

After much consideration, a whooping 10 minutes, I concluded I had the manual habilities of a Bantha with mittens and so I comissionned Kelan Ord to perform some magic on the plates side of things.

At some point I will apply for a brigade, but for now I am focussing on an OM approval. I've decided to go for the Legacy Era style with a few particularity. The helmet will be one of Droodles.

To be extremely clear, none of these are my "handy" work. They were made by Kelan Ord. Thank's Kelan!

Roughing in and assembly
