Title: Plans Thread
Post by: FichtenFoo on October 22, 2007, 06:05:14 AM
So what are your plans for this competition? Is anyone going to tackle AEUG suits? Would love to see an AoZ style Methuss.

My plans are the following:
Advanced Hazel w/ Primrose
TR-5 Hrairoo
Resin TR-6 from e2046 (they have a sweet/huge fiver too in 1/144)

but first and foremost... Advance of Hyakushiki! Gonna do an AoZ-styled Shiki.

Nice Foo! That Shiki would be sweet along with AoZ Mk.II Im doing lol. Hmm how come no one has done a AoZ Zeta in general?
Title: Re: Plans Thread
Post by: FichtenFoo on October 22, 2007, 06:23:52 AM
I've seen Zetas with TTT schemes, but nothing with AoZ styling.

An AoZ styled Zeta would be nice. It could be called an Advanced Ressurection of Zeta. Back on topic though, I can't really choose a set definition of how a Mk.II could be upgraded by the titans. For now I know I plan on changing the flaps on the shoulders to look more like the GM spartan's. So that it would be able to hold 3 missle pods (Those who bought the Ore-Gun Bazooka the pods that came with that). I also plan on bulking up the legs and changing the feet to feel more AoZ like.

:edit: After reading about the Mk.II at MAHQ, The Mk.II was outclassed in armor and in weaponry. So I guess Im on the right track, these are my plans for the build. If anyone wants to add a comment they can post in the In-Prog.

So far here is my plan:

PG Zaku Stutzer - started snapping it this weekend, about 1/2 done right now
1/144 Fiver resin kit (whenever it comes in, have it pre-ordered)
and possibly 1 more.

Main attention right now will be on the Zaku Stutzer.

A Zeta in Advance of Zeta?  Isn't a Shiki or Methuss about advance of the Zeta as you'd want to get?

A Zeta in Advance of Zeta? 

It's one of those cases of I'm my own grandpa (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I'm_My_Own_Grandpa).  :lol:

It's hard to resist the tempting beauty of Zeta, but I agree with Phil.  Having a Zeta in TTT color doesn't make it AoZ.  A prototype of some sort would qualify I guess (depends on how different it is from the real Zeta).

mtomczek, please post a pic of the Fiver when you get it.  I'm really really really tempted by it... :shifty:

Cool beans!!! I also have my Gaplant Fiver pre-ordered, I hope that the model ships on time.

I am going to build a Hazel Owsla, or some form of it, I have the plans created for the primrose unit, and I have started to cut the styrene, not sure what scale yet.

Well technically there are 3 Zeta prototypes prior to Kamille's fix...

Quote
MSZ-006-X Prototype Z Gundam
As mentioned above, there are three faulty prototypes of the MSZ-006 Zeta Gundam. Technically, all three units are the same machine, but each unit has a different head design. The MSZ-006-X1 has a head similar to the MSN-00100 Hyaku Shiki, MSZ-006-X2 featured a head borrowing it's look from the RMS-099 Rick Dias's head and MSZ-006-X3 used a head similar in comparison to the MSA-003 Nemo's head.

MSZ-006-X1 (http://www.mahq.net/Mecha/gundam/z-msv/msz-006-x1.htm)
MSZ-006-X2 (http://www.mahq.net/Mecha/gundam/z-msv/msz-006-x2.htm)
MSZ-006-X3 (http://www.mahq.net/Mecha/gundam/z-msv/msz-006-x3.htm)

Those would be sweet, but IMO a repainted or suped-up version of the Z itself wouldn't make much sense.

edit: I'll quit taking this off-topic.  This might serve better in the Reference thread after the discussion has died down.

I saw that resin Fiver a couple of days ago. Looks pretty awesome.

If I have time to do anything else than my Gaplant, I'll probably do a TTT The O.

I think you will have plenty of time, the 1/144 Fiver will not ship until Mar 28, 2008, at least that is what the website said, they are only taking pre-orders at this point.

I am just wondering if this is a full kit or a conversion?

Post by: zerobxu on October 23, 2007, 06:43:45 AM
I'll probably throw a Hazel, Gabthley, or Gaza C into the mix. Right now, I'm leaning towards the Gabthley, but who knows.

I've got the Methuss, but I've already started painting it in "stock" colors. Just don't feel like stripping it.
Title: Re: Plans Thread
Post by: Ezechiel on October 23, 2007, 06:54:53 AM
I've got a snapped Gab and thought of it too. I'd been thinking of doing something with it before and might just use those ideas!

After scoping the AoZ stuff on the mack (MAHQ), and seeing a decent bit of "High Mobility" suits that really didn't look any more mobile than a standard, I will be going for something like that. Using the GM Kai kit as a base (ditched the Black Ops idea because AoZ sounds cooler), I am doing either the Hazel HiSpeed or Quel HiSpeed.

I'm reviewing which kit I might want to build but I did come across the 1/100 RX-121 TR-1 Hazel Kit at e2046 for Pre-Order.  Was anyone planning a 1/100 mod?

Any difference ordering from e2046 vs. hobbyfan?
Title: Re: Plans Thread
Post by: FichtenFoo on October 25, 2007, 05:27:40 AM
I preordered my TR-6 from e2046 I've (in person) seen a lot of good stuff from them through Keenix.

Fulcy might be doing a 1/100 Hazel Head and Shield.
Title: Re: Plans Thread
Post by: fulcy on October 25, 2007, 05:33:33 AM
might be is such a big word ;)  I have the base of the shield done, and I have a Dengeki head that is waiting to be recast.  Hopefully soon...

Any links to the two?  Is it the Bawoo conversion set?

I think it's a full kit - hold on...

http://www.e2046.com/product_info.php?products_id=7323

Hobbyfan doesn't have a 1/100 Hazel...

Also, it doesn't seem like the Hazel from E2046 has the standard hazel shield, it comes with the Quel shield...
Title: Re: Plans Thread
Post by: Major Blah on October 25, 2007, 06:44:01 AM
Thanks fulcy.  That kit actually looks pretty decent.  Yeah no Hazel shield.
Title: Re: Plans Thread

Even if I preorder the 1/100 kit I still plan on picking up stuff from Fulcy anyway.

Nice, I may need one of those Hazel Heads for my Mk.II

Post by: chaos_theory on October 26, 2007, 05:10:29 AM
I think I'm gonna take on the task of scratching an Asshimar prototype. Maybe something hybrid between the NRX-044 and the 044[R]. I've gotta order me an Asshimar or 2 for the kit base.

TTTTT
Titans Test Team Triple Threat!!!

First off, for reference, here's a link to a thread on Primrose parts:

http://fichtenfoo.com/forum/index.php?topic=2183.0 (http://fichtenfoo.com/forum/index.php?topic=2183.0)

I've got 2 sets of Primrose parts, 1 set of Samuel's Hazel 2 decals, a few of my own decals. 2 Hazel Advanced kits with Samuel's decals are in the mail from Beertax. I just need to find a cheap Zeong (PM me if you've got one), so I can make...

1. Hazel Advanced –

To be built like Jan 07 Dengeki Hobby Cover Model, but in more "normal" color scheme. Primrose torso, shoulders, crab claw gun and missile launcher. Mk. II beam rifle. Matching shield boosters (smooth). GM Shield. Hazel I sensor head.

2. Primrose Fighter –

With Primrose crab claw gun and missile launcher, with Hazel Advanced backpack mounted with matching missile shield boosters. Mount angle will be modified to match artwork and/or look cooler.

3. Hazel Proto-OWSLA (a poor-man's OWSLA prototype)–

With all Primrose front armor. Normal shoulders and torso. Standard Hazel head. Dual beam SMGs. Scratched/bashed backpack including Hazel I backpack top and Hazel advanced skirt arms to each side, canted forwards 30-45 degrees. Under this will be a functional frame with large (Zeong?) boosters and shoulder mounts for Zeong “Gigantic Arm Units”. I kind of like the idea of using the Zeong arms. Not only will it be a lot cheaper, but it's got that "recycling parts to make a proof-of-concept prototype" feel.

Here's a very crude test-fit (just for proportions) using a MK. II and my Hot Rod Zeong arms as stand-ins (I'm NOT stripping my Hot Rod Zeong for this):

Right there with ya Foo!  My TR-6 and NRX-044[R] Prototype Asshimar TR-3 shipped out yesterday also, can't wait to get my hands on them!

Still trying to decide what I would build, if I have the time.  I was thinking of an OWSLA or the Asshimar prototype.
Title: Re: Plans Thread
Post by: Adeon000 on November 12, 2007, 01:56:48 PM
I guess I'll wade in then!

I plan on doing three kits so we'll see how that goes,

1. Kampfer Stutzer (yeah you read right)

Mean i'll finally finish my kampfer from the Krazy kampfer Komp and it was a kinda stutzery idea anyways, It'll have a mini stutzer unit attached to its crotch and some mine laying units on its back, back story and progress to follow!

2. Hazel Owsla with Gigantic arm unit (the one with a primrose, 2xsniper shoulders, 2xmissle pods, 2xprimrose cannon, hrududu 2) assumin i can convince fulcy to cast me some parts!  :evil:

3. Rick Diaz - no idea yet, may tackle some kinda upgrade like the fancy stutzer parts, dunno yet!

(P.S. dam you guys for posting the resin kits, i want them all!!!)
Title: Re: Plans Thread
Post by: Malich on December 05, 2007, 08:16:27 AM
Received my Fiver and 1/100 Hazel yesterday.  Pretty nice casting except a few parts are pretty thin in places.  I will probably pick up another TR-6 along with the Dandelion next.

Has anyone else received their Fiver yet?

After over a year of waiting, I finally got my 1/144 fiver resin kit, I completely forgot about it, then last week I got the arrival notice from HobbyFan.

Geez, I wonder what happened? Why did it take so long?  ???  :twitch:  :wacko:

But it's a nice kit, I am amazed at the number of parts in the kit.

Well, it's no big deal, I got my kit and that is what's important. I am not sure what I will do, am seriously considering replacing the resin Gaplant Mobile Suit with the HGUC kit, but nothing definite yet. I have another project to complete.

I've actually thought of doing the exact same thing, since I have a HGUC Gaplant already snapped and ready to go.
