Legend Rider Series - Orga Mission Memory (Kitbash)

The flat mission memory sticker for the LRS Orga Driver looks way too out of place, and so I decided to ktibash a new one using a spare mission memory from one of my DX Faiz weapon... The Faiz "face" details are removed first using a file and lightly smoothen with sandpaper... The centre of the Faiz "face" is lightly poslished... 



New detail are traced from pictures of the Orga mission memory onto a thinner ABS sheet, and then cut and pasted...




Silver paint is applied on the supposed white parts on the "Orga" face, then the whole mission memory is masked with masking tape to prepare for spray painting... Also took the opportunity to respray some parts on the phone and holder that are paint-scratched or look dirty...



Stickered a small piece of silver reflective tape directly underneath the red circle. If not, since the plastic is transparent, the red circle will look black when placed on the phone. Double-sided tape is then used to paste this new mission memory to the phone...



Nice! Although not really much difference when looking from the front (especially viewing from a picture)...



... it makes a BIG difference when looking from the side...



And a video clip of this kitbash as well as a quick demo of the driver:
