Works in Progress / Re: MG Destiny Gundam

^Thank you very much! Still more to come :D

Progress on the scaled armour front and a big sword. Will only be doing the scales on the right arm and I'm working at modding the destiny's shield a little bit too.

Works in Progress / MG Destiny Gundam
« on: May 16, 2018, 03:15:10 AM »
So I've been working at this for the last week, I've kind of given myself a due date of May 24th, because I would really like to take this one to a hobby show that following weekend.

That said I've got some plans for this one, I've grown to dislike the massive backpack that is so common in SEED so I'm going without wings for this one and I'd like change the proportions a little bit here and there. I'm getting a little bit of inspiration from the Barbatos/Demon fan-art variation of the Destiny that floats around all the time.

So Destiny has clown shoes, so I chopped them 3mm shorter and I intend to add some claws to wrap up the feet. From there I would like to extend the fore-arms by a little bit. I've had it in may head that I would try doing scaled armour again as well.

Showcase / MG Zeta Plus S1
« on: April 08, 2018, 01:28:27 AM »
So this is my MG Zeta Plus S1, I built this for the Gunpla Builder's Association 2018 Cannon Fodder Contest. So the theme was quite naturally to build a grunt or mass production suit, I settled on building the MG Zeta Plus A1 Test Colours literally because it was the only MP suit that I hadn't snapped yet. For my build, I have a serious case of MG GM Sniper II envy so i tried to style it after that, with a few changes to make it fit the Zeta Plus a little better and using some spare bits from the S-Gundam.

I've added front skirts and new side skirts since I didn't particularly like the beam rifle side skirts from before. I've changed up the main camera and v-fin assembly on the Zeta Plus. I've been tweaked the tail fin as well, I've cut a gap and added some movable fins on the tail.

Removed the seam lines on the rifle. The binders I've added a few extra wing attachments with laptop screws and magnets and a bit of 90 deg angled pla-plate to keep it up right.

Specifically scratch built a shield since the nose cone doesn't make sense when it doesn't transform and I wanted to bulk up the rifle a little bit too, because it feels a little 2 dimensional. I've added a guard over the hand.

So I've added some pla plate to the chest transformation parts so the head won't move down anymore. Removed the seam line across the side of the chest and then pla plated for good measure.

Removed the seam lines from the head and the face plate and added some fins to the head to give it a more aggressive look. Scribed some new lines mostly Danmo along the edges and pla-plated the shoulders. Removed the seam from the funny leg vents. Replaced the hoses on the backs of the legs with pistons.

For paint I used Vallejo Signal Blue, Sky Blue, Ferrari Red, Gunmetal Grey, Duraluminium, Jet Exhaust, Dark Grey Blue, and Medium Blue, and for the display base I used Vallejo Dark Grey, and Sea Grey.

It's been over a month (a very busy month) and I keep forgetting to post my WIP pictures, so this is gonna be a big dump of photos.

Anyway I've got a bunch of mods that I was working on before I started painting, removed the seam lines from the head and the face plate. Scribed some new lines mostly Danmo along the edges and pla-plated the shoulders. Removed the seam from the funny leg vents. Replaced the hoses on the backs of the legs with pistons.

And from there I've started and finished painting, I want to do some weathering and a very basic display base along with a flat coat.

^^ Thank you very much, still working at it :D

I still have more work to go on both the shield and rifle, but I've made a little detour to work on the chest section, while I figure out more. So I've added some pla plate to the chest transformation parts so the head won't move down anymore. Removed the seam line across the side of the chest and then pla plated for good measure.

Still plenty more work to go, but I'll have to cut it off by the end of the month so I can get it painted for the contest in time.

Been working on my Zeta Plus, specifically been scratch building a shield since the nose cone doesn't make sense when it doesn't transform and I wanted to bulk up the rifle a little bit too, because it feels a little 2 dimensional. Not done yet but I've added a guard over the hand.

Got some work done on the rifle and binders. Removed the seam lines on the rifle. The binders I've been adding a few extra wing attachments with laptop screws and magnets and a bit of 90 deg angled pla-plate to keep it up right.

Progress! I've changed up the main camera and v-fin assembly on the Zeta Plus. I've been tweaking the tail fin as well, I've cut a gap and added some movable fins on the tail.  Pretty happy with it so far. Next up I'll be working on the binders!

So this is my entry into the Gunpla Builders Association's 2018 Cannon Fodder Contest. I'm starting with an MG Zeta Plus A1 Test Type, and I would like to mod it into something of a sniper type, not entirely unlike the C1, but maybe a bit more robust or aggressive looking. I'm going to be scrapping the idea of a transformation, adding things that won't work in wave-rider mode. I have an old S-Gundam I'll be parting out in the course of this.

To start with I've robbed the S-Gundam of its main weapon for the Zeta Plus. I've added front skirts and new side skirts since I didn't particularly like the beam rifle side skirts from before.



Next up I want to remove the v-fin and replace it with something more Delta Plus.

Showcase / Re: HG Gusion Rebake [Speed Build]
« on: December 23, 2017, 02:23:03 AM »
^^So we're running it as a Group Build over at Gundam Eclipse right now essentially you're given a specific amount of time to fully complete a kit. I enjoy it as kind of challenge, it's a fun way to push through a build.

We set the limits as:
- 24hr/48hrs to complete a SD kit
- 72/96 hrs for a HG/ RE sets
- up to a full week for a MG/ RG kits

I finished this one in a little under 50 hours, and admittedly this turned out a little rough in a handful of places.

Showcase / HG Kimaris Trooper [Speed Build]
« on: December 22, 2017, 03:55:21 AM »
Its taken me forever to get this flat coated and then to actually take photos of this and the
Gusion Rebake that I built for a speed build, pretty sad considering that detail.

Anyway now that its done I'm pretty pleased with the results, I made them as a kind of
matched set to go with the Hyakuri I built previously.

Last WIP for the Trooper!
It took a little longer than the Gusion did, but I'm fairly pleased with the results.
So again I've painted and weathered it to match both the Hyakuri and the Gusion.
I'm a little on the fence as to whether I will come back to decal later or not.

Anyway came out to 52 hours or so.

Progress!
Alright, so I've been removing mold lines, scratch building a new rear skirt, gluing a few things here and there, and patching some holes in the reverse of the shield.
