Hi guys, been awhile since my last posted work. This is my entry for Gunpla Builders World Cup 2012. I started out with the intention to slim down the O so I converted it from PG Strike skeleton. I also added a huge cannon and did some nip and tuck, gave this fellow a more "updated" look.

On a side note I could have done better to remove all the Strike Gundam elements so that this is more convincing as the O. Well lesson learnt.

Holy crap thats stunning!  I really dislike the O in general normaly but I love what you've done with it.

The colours are fantastic and your shading is really nicely done, obvious yet subtle, and the weaponry is really great.

Stellar work!  :-)

The workmanship is exquisite, no question.  I honestly don't quite know what to make of the piece itself though.  Its almost schizophrenic.

L love the way you describe it, schizophrenic. I agree with you to a certain extent. It could be the pla-plates or the form of the mecha itself. Thanks for the feedback! :)

Easily my favorite O to date. I love this. I think the leg replacement kicks ass. I like how busy it is. Love the tech detail look.
