damn! damn! damn! :D
as i started this project, i never thought that it will take quite three months to finish :faint:

but this whole work with re-coloring from blank sheets to a colored version was totally worth :dance:
This Gundam is just badass and to call this a SD (super deformed) version is definitely an understatement ;)

with over 400 sometimes really tiny and complicated pieces, i really can say it's nothing for beginners
you can see it in the building process gallery
and i have to say that too, i printed that thing on A3 ^^;

the model itself was really cool to build
all pieces fit quite perfect together
sadly, and that's the reason why the model hold the weapon only one time and in that way, the weapon it's not really designed for the model
or rather the hands not for the weapon
the hands are based on one piece which is fold to itself just to get the shape of a hand
so it's really unstable, think about that when you wanna build that model ;)

now then
to the point what you probably all waiting for
and to the sad part :worry:
because this time, it's a bit different
the original model as black&white version and a pdo as help file (where i made the screenshot from) is available here
but you need a password
i can't tell you the password here but think about "from where" you download the model, that's all i can say
then my recolored version
normally i ask the owner or designer if i can get the permission to share them ->public<-
but because there is no way for me to contact "panda" i'm not gonna do that
...
by the way
asking questions in a private messages is free here on dA :)
maybe you know what i mean ;)

i combined the photos this time because i noticed that there are many fakers and thiefs out there, specially in the gundam scene

but there is only one person, who has that brown desk under each model

me's :D


feel also free to write a critique
would make me happy :meow:

again a part with a lot of pieces :aww:
the first five screenshots are again the pieces which are for the hip

i promissed that i make a few photos of this boosters
well, these are a bit more complex as the others but base on the same technique

first i cut them out and build the single rings
i also removed the tabs for the inside ring
quite useless for me
at the fourth photo you can see the final pieces
because the sheets are designed for colored cardboard paper there are no tabs for the bottom piece where the peak as to be attached on
so i just colored a little paper piece with black marker and glued it on top (you can see it at the left piece)

then i put some glue at the inside of the tube and put it on top of the inside ring
after it's dry, i add the peak
quite simple, if you know how it works ^^;

piece overview 1
as always, here are all pieces what you need for the hip

po2
again one of those problems when you work with normal paper
to combine this pieces i just add a little tab at the backside and cut two lines into the base piece

po3
this one took me really long to figure out
first i thought the smaller piece has to be attached to the hip base but that doesn't work
because the black flat pieces where all the parts has to be attached fit exactly to the hip base
so this was the only solution

i scratched the color where this pieces has to be combined

po4
lego is just boring against this :D

po5
and e viola
the final hip :meow:

and it goes on :)
man, this step took me really long this time
but it was worth, the result looks just sweet :dance:

as always you can see the pieces of the chest-hip combo

the chest itself
the front attachments
the shoulders
and the pipes of the hip
(i didn't add this pieces the last time, because there were already enough ;) )

this time i made no piece overview of the pieces because the chest itself is based on just six pieces
the interesting part here is how to combine the shoulders to the torso

on page L and you can see it in the 3d view
there are two cylinders in the chest as an inner structure
i had no clue how i should build that so i made it my own way

first i changed the tabs and glued the cylinder inside of the outer chest parts
then i made a tube what fits into this cylinder and combined them with the shoulder parts

sadly i can't tell you how big this tube should be, it's something what you have to test out :blushes:
also you have to look out that you get the right lenght, angle and stuff

the next photo shows an idea from a facebook friend
he suggested i should try to build a moving system for the chest-hip
it took me bit to figure out the right height and diameter of the tubes but it works very well
...
even there is no space for movements ^^;
i will explain later

but it's a good way if you wanna build an other SD Gundam to get a bit life into this static models :)

by the way, the bigger tube has to be on the bottom (left piece)

the next photos
the "golden" front attachments
and the side pipes

the original pipes were just ugly to build
you can see it that the open sides sometime on top and some other are underneath

i used two paper stripes to combine them together
but i prefere if you are at this point, to draw youself some tabs
also i will edit the sheets a bit that you just have to add edge on edge

next problem
in the 3d model the pipes are going through the "containers"
but i can do this too ;)
i made some holes into them and just put them inside

p.s.
you should do this before you add the containers to the hip ;P

last picture
the final torso :aww:

p.s.s.
here you can see what i mean that it's actually not possible to move the chest
but that is no problem
the important thing is that i "could" do it if i want :D

So I have a photo camera, two action bases, Gundam and Char's Zaku... so let's have fun XD
I was playing with my newly assembled Char's Zaku II and his rival Gundam. I must say that I have to get more action bases. They are amazing and gives me a lot of possibilities to display my models. Yeah, I knew that long time before a finally bought one, but now I know it even better ;P

So when I began playing with poses I first wanted to do "Jumping Gundam vs Zaku with bazooka", of cos if you watched first Gundam you know that Amuro when first fought Char wasn't much of a fighter so he quickly run out of ammo in his beam rifle thats why I had him posed while grabbing his beam saber.
Next thing I did was to lay down Zaku as if Amuro somehow knocked him down... or Char tripped ;P they both out of ammo so Amuro is drawing his beam saber while Char is trying to grab his Heat Hawk from the ground.
Then I put Zaku on AB and try to make them look like fighting in space, or in the air.
The last pose I put Gundam and Zaku into is famous zaku kick scene.
That's all for now. No more models to assemble :/ but I think I'll play more thous that I have and maybe I'll do some more photos.

Hope I was clearly enough with my description, sorry for any mistakes ^^;

photos by me
Models:
1/100 MG Gundam RX-78 2 One Year War Ver.

in case of rebuild the big Sinanju Model from Paper-replika.com
the next part for this awesome model
The Beam-Rifle :dance:

like the Axe what i recently uploaded, it's also a redesign from the Playboy Sinanju version

the first two photos are showing the complete new scope
(just if you wonder why there are numbers missing ;) )
i build the scope that way because
well, i mean it's a rifle not a sub-machine gun :D
a rifle need a huge scope
period :D

you can also see this little scope attachment
the original plastic version has that too

i used some wires to combine the small pieces
actually the whole piece is a pipe

IMPORTANT!
to add the "shadow catchers" at the front and back
you have to try out what diameter you need
i calculated with different paperweights ;)

the third photo shows the whole model with the numbers,
just if there are still some questions about that ;)

the fourth is a few hours later with some finished parts

and finally the finished weapon :aww:

about the sheets:
because this time it's a recolored version
the sheets are coming as pdf
just click download at the top :)

the original design belongs still to playboy
redesigned and recolored by me

IMPORTANT:
THIS MODEL IS FREE AND SHOULD IT BE
SO LET IT BE!

1/100 AMX-004-3 Qubeley Mk II Ple Two Custom

This is the MG Qubeley Mk II used by Ple Two, the clone of Newtype prodigy Elpeo Ple.

For my build, I greatly expanded the design work of the markings. The original kit only contains markings (in yellow) for the front facings of the shoulder binders-- Psycommu System marking and Qubeley script with Ple Two mascot on the left and Neo Zeon insignia on the right. EVERYTING else was all designed and laid out by me (repeated markings on back of shoulders, split Neo Zeon insignias on top of binders, text on legs and arms, danger warnings, funnel binder text and isignia, etc.). I also changed the color to gold to match the metallic finish I was creating. I sent this design off to Samuel to produce the decals for me.

Regarding the metallic finish, I wanted to add some visual interest and not just do the same old color over chrome metallics. I lightly sanded the gloss black primer before spraying on the chrome Alclad and it gave me the brushed metal look seen here. A way of weathering the finish without getting dirty. The red was Alclad Transparent Red (I've said it before-- DO NOT USE HOT METAL RED!!! It has nowhere near the amount of pigmentation for primary color use). Gold is also Alclad. Grays and blacks are Gunze and Gaia respectively.

There are also some physical mods with the addition of HiQParts thrusters inside the binders and on the outside of the legs. Metal collar parts were used for the hoses.

More to come...
