RE100 Efreet Custom
« on: May 03, 2017, 03:23:32 AM »
So, this is my entry into the IAG 2017 Contest, in my understanding its okay to share WIPs but people might copy your work so its kind of discouraged. But I like sharing my work so I'm gonna just post it everywhere.

Anyway, I decided to use the RE100 Efreet Custom I had just snapped. The theme for the contest is the Meijin Cup, so get some build fighters on! So the first question I asked is (having just watched Westworld) am I the villain or the hero? Villain, definitely villain, pretty much all my previous BF themed build look really villainous, and the Efreet really helps with that.

So at first, I had thought of combining the idea of the Kaempfer with the Efreet, but the bazookas I had scratched just didn't look right on it. So after a bit of thought BF again became the solution; Kaempfer Amazing: fuel tanks and weapon pods. The other bit that I changed up was to remove the rack of missiles from the legs, I felt like they really messed up the lines.

Is "I wish" an acceptable answer?

Awesome. Looking forward to seeing this done. I love the Efreet. I've got one snapped myself who knows when I'll clear out my project list enough to do anything with it.

@Othikent Thank you, really enjoyable kit and pretty easy to work on too

So at this point I've finished up the basic shape of the fuel tanks and I have shaped them up a little bit. I have a few more things to add here and there. I've also added some big square thrusters under the shoulder armour, because I felt they were kind of bare and it would be better fit for what I have planned.

^^Thank you very much guys, I'll try not to disappoint too much :D

Anyway, I managed to have an unintended absence for 3 weeks and now I really only have
3 days left to wrap things up for the IAG 2017 contest.

On the plus side it gave me sometime to consider what I'd actually be doing with the kit.
I decided that I would be mounting the swords on a shield because my initial plan of mounting
them on the hips didn't look right.

So, far I've modded the left arm to remove the grenade launcher, and I've been working
on scratch building two identical rifles. I've started work on the shield putting a bend in it was
pretty tricky, and I'm pretty pleased with how its coming along. I've got how I wanted to mount
the swords sorted out and the whole thing is mounted on the left forearm by magnets.

I still have a few more things to add to the underside of the shield :D

So I guess I'm working up to the very last minute on this one.

Anyway, so I've been working on the matching rifles to make them look the same and then
a little bit different just to give them a slight asymmetry, then added magnets to mount
them onto my fuel tanks. Beyond that I've removed all of the hoses again similar to what I
did with my last monoeye, and then added some minor bits for vents and fins here and there.
All that left is just paint and photos, I've gotta get it in gear.
