The name is Shin Matsunaga, the White Wolf, from back during the original MSG-MSV days. I'm sure this is going too be great. Michael, BTW, Where did you get your Flapters(!)?

Thanks guys.

G: Yeah... the Dom cannon I got from ya was originally for my Saz, but the more I think about it the less I believe I'll ever build it.  :roll: So I figured it'd look just as bad-ass on a Goog.

Rich: I know who Shin is, :lol: I just wanted to make sure viewers knew which one I was referring to on the Jeep site. I got my Flaptters from R10... they have all that Miyazaki stuff 200-300 yen cheaper than HLJ. 8)

Mostly they're the thrusters supplied with the kit. The outside ones anyway. I "lathed" them on my electric drill and razor to thin the upper edges to make them look nicer as shown on Jeep's site:

Easy to do and the results are great. The inner bells are P-103 Kotobukiya bells. That option set comes with many small bell sizes. Also keep an eye out for Fulcy's machined aluminum bells when they come out. Click here.

Wow that "lathing" is really neat.  How's the finish?  Is it smooth?  I scroll through that page but completely missed it, glad you brought it up.

I think Jeep does some structural changes (saw the head change) too?  The Gelgoogs look meaner.  Oh the funnels are really cool, never thought you can make it from spikes like that.  :lol:

Oh, btw, I don't think Matshunaga was ever considered a NT  :razz:  :razz:  :razz:

The finish is pretty smooth. I also take some very fine sandpaper to it as a last lathing step to smooth any rough spots. I noticed he's done a lot of structure changes like the head, but there's other parts where he didn't do anything which considering all the other detail he did, I thought was odd. Like the Goog shoulder vents. :?

Whew! Good think this isn't a Shin Gelgoog then. :wink: I'm just using Jeep's S.M. Goog as inspiration for my build.

Cmdr Harabec: Funnels will be stored on the top of the shield.

miki: do you mean how will I make the parts chrome? I'll be using Alclad2 Chrome paint. Great stuff!

Yeah, check out his newer Zaku... there's pages of in-progs to it and of the weapons seperated out. It's made me totally rethink the way I build gunpla and prompted me to buy more aluminum tubing.  :lol:

There's 3 links at the top-left of the Zaku page. Those are the progs/detail shots.

I'm just wondering where jeep got those spikes.  Do you think they are custom machined parts?  Awesome in progs though really makes you see these kits in a new light.

I'm assuming he's got access to a machine shop. His works are too clean for just a drill and some metal tubes. Fulcy should get some Zaku spikes machined. :wink:

Well, I'm back on this project now. Nothing worth photographing as everything is on skewers and half the parts have been primered. Should be donein  what... an hour? :P

Actually I'm waiting on decals. I am testing out a new printer service (new to me anyway) and I'll let you guys know how it works out.
