The Legend of Kitsune
« on: October 18, 2017, 09:46:10 AM »
Hey! It's been a too long since my last share here! I know I've posted this on several social media groups, but in the odd chance that some of you aren't on facebook, allow me to share it here as well. This is my entry for the GBWC 2017 Philippine leg, entitled "The Legend of Kitsune". Please enjoy!













and some shots of just the mecha...




The entry finished somewhere in the top 8 and received a small consolation prize, and this being my first attempt at the GBWC, I think it's a pretty good start! Kitsune is a kitbash of the FM Barbatos Lupus and HG Hashmal, with some Lupus Rex parts thrown in. If you want to know more you can see the full build diary here:

And if you want to know what is going on in the diorama, I wrote a fanfiction that leads up to the scene here:

Comments are most welcome!

That is very cool work relay like the high contrast painting used, and congratulations on the GBWC placing.

StryderPrime has a great WIP series on a Custom-built Sleeves Bawoo.  This is a great place to learn about creating this detail from scratch.  G
