Seven Sword: The 1st Step
There are a few special runners in this kit. These are specially crafted to let light travel through it. But as I cut them off from the runner, they felt brittle. I suppose this is due to the material makeup for these parts. That means I have to be more careful when cutting them out. They're a bit more rigid than normal plastic, thus they don't bend as easily. So perhaps that's why they felt more brittle than expected. Hopefully I won't end up snapping a piece off.
At the end, I only have one component completely finished. And while this is the beginning, it is only but a first step out of many towards a very interesting model. I'm anxious to see how the finished product looks. Yet at the same time, I must refrain from rushing. Patience is key. That and a warm and comfortable workstation. Brrr... it's chilly.
