Upper body and hip skirts assembled. They're quite religious.
They built an inner skeleton out of foam board for additional support
Taras Lesko, who is behind this private project has spent 4.5 kg of paper (720 sheets) to create 1250 small parts. Taras along with his brother, Ivan Lesko, working together to build a Gundam MK-2 is for 350 hours. Then use the remaining time of 4 months to complete.
As explained on his video commentary, the process started with building a real Gundam plastic model kit for photograph materials. This materials is used to make a rendered 3D model using a software. After that, he created various templates using a variety of programs. The templates were then printed, cut and assembled into their own placement. They made 12-piece foamboard skeletons to give the model extra strength to stand.
Another thing that makes their work can be regarded as the masterpiece is that they also make a very good documentation. Ivan Lesko act as a photographer who makes images from it's initial creation stages to completion stages. He also as a graphic designer for their cool posters. They then combined these photos into timelapse video.
I can't wait for their next projects. Hopefully, it will be much higher and much more exciting.
