ok, so this is a comission job which i accepted and been doing this sucka for a month already. the progress has been going on really well. but as for the picture taking, been on hold for quite sometime becasue been spending most of the time doing my packaging design. crappy-o...

anyways, the pictyuires you're gonna see here are what it looked like during the first week of progression. the latest pics wont be uploaded until i feel they are good enough.

enough yapping, here are the pics:


closeup shot of the head. modification are done to match that of buster's. as you can see th front 'cap' like structure is too blunt for my taste. so it got sharpened but will show in my upcoming pics.



the body modification. actually this portion is done except for minor detailings.


cockpit hatch to maintain the PG property.


arm modifications are minimal, just to capture the proportion of buster's.


with open hatch on the back part of the arm.

will continue on uploading the pics later on.

3projects going on currently is really hard for me nowadays..heh...getting old oredi..haiya...

The PG Strike sure is one good base kit to mod into other SEED based meha. You've done good on the FREEDOM, I'm sure this one would even be better. Nice project bro! :)

more pics~~!!:


front portion of the lower torso.
the tubes are from plastic tubes cut into desired size and gled together.
the black piece on top of it is from the frame of the lower torso which i cut out so that can make way for the groin armor to fit in. heh, seemes sawed off pieces are really reuseable~~!!


rear of the lower torso.
the blue part is actually from strike's back. just put it there to give spice to the vernbier details wchih can be spotted on normal buster.


as mentioned earlier, this is how it looks like after the visor has been sharpened after epoxy putty was added.


how the rear portion of the leg looks liek after some detailings were done. the legs have been put up until here only and currently i'm concentrating on doing the cannons.


this is the entire progress of how buster looked like 3 weeks ago.

comments are welcome so that i can spice up this buster more~~!!
heh

This is looking really cool so far.   :D

Quick question, what type of clay/putty are you using for the modifications? I would like to try some of that out on my kampfer project.

Looks like Miliput standard yellow/gray to me...

I really like the additional putty to the forehead area. It looks like it's coming along nicely.  8)

thanks for the comments guys.

like OYWM said, i used standard yellow/grey MILIPUT...works fine to me~~

pr_plecow, cover the internals? which part? i dont cover any of the internals...i just cut em out.

mechaneil, the cannons will follow the beecraft's design as seen in the strike PG manual. the picreferences might be very limited since there's only 1 pic, but i'll try my best to give it best definition. will be scratchbuilding the cannons using plastic tubes styrene sheets and lotsa epoxy putty..

will keep updated once finish some minor mods on my V2.
