Changed couple of greeblies on my combox and noticed that I´ve totally forgotten the square-shaped greeblies on top of combox
because they aren´t visible on ref pics! Done them, now drying before final assembly. Also I shortened my boots a bit to get proper lenght.
Gettin ready for the photoshoot on thursday!

Oops.. It was a good thing I re-checked my costume today. This little thing happened overnight:
Image

Seems like the fumes of the glue dissolved colour/substance from the white cap that was glued to the screw (not to the box itself).

Here it is after a bit of paint and the new red button is visible too:
