MG 1/100 Jesta Custom WIP

It took me a little while to figure out what kit I wanted to work on next. Well this is it the MG Jesta. This kit just came out and lots of people are working on one so figure maybe I can share some cool mods with you as I go. I also purchased some Kotobukiya M.S.G. MSG Weapon Units (Missile launcher and Gatling gun). I might use some scrap parts I have laying around too just have to wait and see.

As you see the image below I have already cleaned up all the runners and test fitted the kit. I must say this kit is very sturdy and I cant wait to start modifying!!


Something I do when test fitting is cut the pegs in half with a hobby knife. That way the parts are easier to take apart once together.


Sorry its been a while since my last update on this build been busy but today i got to work on some panel lining the feet. I am really liking the detail that I am putting in even tho it takes a bit of time REALLY worth it!!

Started working on the back pack today. I am going to be using some old Zeta scraps I have, Since this is going to be a High mobility suit I need a little more thrust! I filled in the Leg thrusters with filler putty. Am am using some joints and drilled into the back pack for some test fitting.

This is just some test fitting there will be one on each side once finished up

Wanted to show you guys how I cut my pla plate and get the same shape that I will need for the detailing on the back of the thursters.

First I trace it out on the part on Grafix clear film, (any craft store will have it for $15 for about 25 sheets) Then I use a metal ruler and find the shape I want to cut out. The Grafix film is used like a stencil so i can get the same shape for both thrusters.
