Model In-Progress / Re: My Briegel N.2- Tournament type use
« on: January 25, 2009, 04:33:56 PM »
In Lucca 08 I had the pleasure to know Scott Robertson of DesignStudioPress, and I've bought some fantastic books from him.

His selection of books really are great, I remember having the 'Concept Design (1)' book out the library at uni, and found it IMPOSSIBLE to not feel inspired/ influenced by the works inside. Just checked the site again now and they've increased the number of books ten fold, lots of catching up to do I think!

As for the Briegel I think it looks great, I've been scouting for mech kits that would make cool racers by adding the sponsor type decals to them. This one deffo ticks the battle arena theme for me, those arms are menacing! Do you have any aerodynamic/ high speed capable mechs planned by any chance??? Kinda like how the Transformers can skate at high speeds in the Movie, only sleeker looking... that would make my day! heres a pic by a VERY talented artist that I've had saved for inspiration (just needs a weapon IMO)

Curse you! Now I cant look at it without seeing masking tape! I looked at it as if it was a giant mecha the first time so naturally saw them as giant band aids, but giant mecha don't shave their legs!?  ???  ;)

Thanks for the insight into the shading, love the grey/blue colour you achieved. Keep em' coming anubis023.

edited spelling

Hi, I think you have done a great job here, I'm not really a fan of this design but in the colours you have used I am seeing it in a whole new light. The shading, really adds a nice realism to the small scale kit, what method did you use? The white 'brick' type pattern looks cool IMO, is there a reason you didn't put any on the upper half? Not complaining  ^_^

Oh! and pose 11 looks great.

hey cool looking project, reminds me of the matrix APU in a way. Any ideas on the colour scheme?

Hey, great job, I've had my eye on the conversion kit you used here and was wondering what a Zeta would look like in dark greys so thanks for providing me with an answer. I really love how many poses you've given us here. Keep up the nifty work  :D

It kind of already looks like a tank turret. I was thinking swap the arms for some kind of heavy payloads of missiles  :pirate:

The quod leg looks awesome, though it looks like it's lacking heavy weaponary. With 4 legs it can surly have a heavier payload than the pics show. Maybe some mods would be in order upon purchasing that kit

wow some great updates, everythings taking shape nicely.

I love the putty work you've done but do have a wee sugestion, I think the 'upper body' of the bike (where the petrol tank would be if it was a real bike) could do with some areas being made to look like the back of the monsters head- if you get me???

 P.s. I saw these and thought of you - images found from a google search "skull bike"

your project is kind of a meaty version of the first pics

nice paint job

maybe they can be a lil more inspiration

and unlucky about the spillage   :(. but congrats about the baby!  :D

well you asked for opinions so I'll give you mine. I prefer the 2nd one, it ticks all the right boxes for Urban and night camo, and I love the feel it gives when i look at it. The 3rd is also cool and ticks the night cammo box, although it does resemble the Foo's latest creation I dont think that should worry you too much because as the previous message stated, its your kit. Plus lifes too short to worry about minor things like this lol but you'll probably have a greater sense of achievment if you went with one that didn't  8)

Anyway not trying to sway you but I always find if I've almost made up my mind on a colour scheme its always nice to see if others agree just to push you into making the decision final. If you get me??  :wacko:

good luck with the rest of the kit  ;)

Thanks for making this thread, I'm sure it will be a source of inspiration for many members including myself. I'd also like to know if it will be recast at all? Would be a shame not to  ;)

Hey yes I cannot really add much to what the good doctor has already said because the tanks are pretty small so adding customised features would be fiddly and very time stressful I would imagine.  I used to LOVE Warhammer 40k and still have my old Ultramarines army  8) boxed away

hey no worries wouldn't want you get in trouble ;) and speaking of guidlines, I've noticed some spelling ones, basically its frowned upon to not spell properly, lol is ok but I dont think thnx, wut etc are because of the non english members, it makes it difficult to translate.

And yeah there are some nice models on that site, I just wish it would let you click on the [EXT]!!! anyways, dont want to go off-topic so I'll stop now, cant wait for updates!!

No problem, glad to have helped,  I think in the pics I posted the original-ish colours used work really well for it.
Good luck, and I hope you post new pics up soon. (heres a link to the site I got the pics from incase you would like to see more)

P.S. I think you're supposed to delete the image links when you quote somebody to decrease load times and we dont need to see them twice  :razz:, if you dont know how to do it just read through the text in the quote untill you come across [img]bla bla bla... then just delete it. Simple.  8)

wow I love what you're doing here, brings to light a side of sci-fi that wouldnt usually pop into mind when thinking of a racer or piece of machinery. I draw monsters but monster machines is awesome, Looks really original. Keep at it man, I want more!!

not at all thnx for ur input man  :-)
for the gun..imo i think that gun will look better with both hands on it...
and i'm thinkin' of posin' my stamen so it kindda holds the gun with one hand...
dunno if u understand wut i mean..but yeah for the back curvy big fin thingys...
not sure wut i'm gonna do most probably just addin' some panel lines...but for now
just gonna leave it as it is...until i decide on wut to do with it.
and thnx for the colour scheme...coz i actually have almost identical idea...but instead of
bone cream it'd be a yellow orange...was thinkin' the trial plan version from anaheim journal.

I agree, it would look very nice in both hands, perhaps you could mod it in such a way that it looks great in the one hand?? Also I like where you'r coming from on the colour scheme, great minds eh?  ;) Was you thinking of yellow orange being a dominant colour, because the bone cream in my minds eyes was the main color, with the greys as a secondary colour to break it up. But enough about that, as foo would say "its going on your shelf...".

Panel lines is probably all the FIN bits need, maybe stick a slice or two in (like you did on the front skirt armour) to break it up?

Heres a pic from a japanese site I came across, I thought it might be helpful or maybe inspirational for you, as you can see the fin parts have been modified a lot! For me they make the kit look taller in a way. Enjoy  :-)

p.s. About modding the provided weapons, as you may not be able to use the gun with the 'Va Va VOOM' factor, it could still be a reference for the mods you do  8) (I just love it that damned much!!)

Hey the pics have a lot of noise so cant make out any super details but from what I can see I like it. Although the pics arnt the most clear they are perfect for making a wallpaper with, because the lighting is PERFECT for a nice night scene, space scene.

If you dont mind I would like to have a go myself at it.

Hey, dont mean to intrude, I just had to give some input. I think that gun you linked to ( would go perfectly with the beautiful mods you made on the Gundam.

Also speaking of beautiful mods, IMO the huge 'fins' on the boosters and the curvy parts of the back of the Gundam seem a little too clean when compared to the rest of the kit. I think they need some kind of panel lines added or something just to tie them in with the rest of the kit. But thats all really.

Cant wait to see it finished, oh and p.s. When I see the kit in its pose I got an image of it in light/ dark greys and bone creams. But thats just me  :shifty:

Thanks for the link, I take it from the site that the stuff needs to be machined? I was hoping it could be hand carved from the ease you was talking about, or am I wrong here?? It comes in a strange shape doesnt it.  :wacko:

Thanks for that, so you are casting then. I'd love to get into that side of things but I dont want to move too quickly I have to finish a few kits properly first.

Back to the topic, where can one buy this Ren shape stuff from?

This build looks VERY interesting. I cant wait to see more, not really familiar with MK stuff but I like the look of the models I've seen so far.

Is there any chance you can tell me a little more about the Ren Shape process? How do you plan to shape all of the legs identically? resin cast? or will each be carved by your hand?
