I'll just leave this here.
Don't know about you guys, but it's about damn time this kit came out.

Concepts / Wildwurger Builds
« on: September 29, 2009, 09:44:06 AM »
Hey, Not sure were else to put this...
But has anyone seen any Wildwurger builds that stand out? I got the kit as a gift and was just can't seem to find any good reference photos of a finished build aside from OOB ones.

Yeah, the Dom has always been one of my favorite designs since seeing what Jeep did to his.
Turning the shoulders into Gatling, wonderful!

Anyway, Don't want to stray too far off topic.
I can see Bandai making a few Gouf variations, just because they are having a lot of fun with these 2.0 kits.

Mixed feelings here on the face. However the rest of the kit looks beastly (Even if it is VERY similar to a zaku, at least it's NOT right?) Not to mention it's huge, though if you really want it true to the old animation, then this is way to boxy, lol. I remember the Gouf being one of the most poorly animated suits in the show.

Although, this is still a neat looking kit with all the new 2.0 technology, I'm still waiting for the dom, however, who knows what they will do to that. Since they have been diving slightly into MSV, anyone think we will see any other Goufs, aside from he Custom? What about the Heavy Arms Gouf, or the Gouf flight type?

Belldandy eh?
Not bad, I must say, the clothing looks good, and the skin and face look good as well. As commented before, your skintone is nice, and I think you got her clothing colors spot on. Did you shade the fabric at all, or do the natural waves in the model create the shadows? Either way they look nice and make this model pretty 3D. Good to see you're still building! (Can't say the same for myself, lol)

Glad to see I inspired someone with my Zaku's skirt mods.
And on that note, I really like how the rest of your mods have come out, and the concept and thought put into your kit. I'll be watching this one to see how you finish out your weapon mounts, maybe you can teach me something. :D

Very nice, I have to agree that the 120mm Recoilless Cannon looks better on the ball, a closer range double cannon seems a bit useless on a pod against a Zaku. I really love the orange you used, it's a lot more vibrant than the original red-orange from the animation. Good work, I wouldn't have been able to tell this was a dry brush, you did a good job with it. And also, that metal finish really looks great, and the different shades of gray on the wrenches are a really nice touch, and add bring emphasis to the different parts without it all being solid.

Ah, wow, that sounds a little cheezy. Oh well the concept is there, but this almost seems more like toys than a series kit. But it will be nice to have 1/144 scale type 61s, plus, that is one dazzling array of weapons for that zaku.

As for the GM, nobody said anything, but I was just posting that because in the Feed there was no release date.

Searching around on HLJ, I found a couple of new kits.

Feburary Release
HGUC Zaku Ground Battle Set Which actually looks very cool IMO, not sure what the white things are.
Master Grade GM ver. 2.0

March Release
Master Grade Hyaku Shiki HD Colors

Painting/Priming / Re: Glowing parts? Without Radiation?
« on: January 27, 2009, 09:05:56 AM »
Awesome, yeah green was what I expected, that link is great, I just wonder how well it adheres to plastic, or if it needs to be primed, that's what experimentation is for, right?

Thanks for the feedback guys, the idea struck me that it would be a nifty gimmick for eyes and visors of Fed style MS. Or you know, other things, I doubt painting a whole kit glow in the dark would be very aesthetic. XD

That site looks very interesting SF, I may order some and try it out on a kit one day.

Painting/Priming / Glowing parts? Without Radiation?
« on: January 26, 2009, 08:37:25 PM »
Seriously, I just saw this for a Gundam 00 Action figure and was wondering it there where any decent glow in the dark paints, or plastics... or whatever it is that makes things glow. I think this would be an interesting design that has some use somewhere, although I can see it being very cheesy and lame as well. But imagine a GM visor that is just green in the light, and flick off the lights and they are all lit up without wiring in a LED!

So if anyone has played with this, or has any ideas, I'm very curious.

This is a really nice build, I glanced at it a few times, and since it's not vibrant and brilliant I never really thought about it. But after sitting down and really taking a good look at the pictures I can see this is a really well done kit. I like the paint, how the colors you chose are neutral and don't really stand out much, it really brings out the actual details of the kit, and doesn't overshadow them.

The stand is also really nice, I like how the machine aspect of it carries through even though its a well done wooden base. Great job on this, it's a really nice build.

1: Parts from kits are fine. If you can scratch in 31 days, go for it... otherwise OOBs and minor mods are the way to go.

2: No size limit, but try to keep it close to the kit size. We were discussing a size limit of no more than 1 inch "border" of the subject's footprint. So say you have a car that's 4x6" then you could do a 6x8" base but put the car anywhere on it... corner, center, etc... But we decided against that in the end.

3: Yes, plan, design, purchase, etc... just don't start constructing anything yet. No cutting, gluing, sprue removal, base building, etc... The exception would be a custom decal order which needs to be done sooner to have them ready for the start date. But that's more "designing" than constructing I think.

Thanks for the speedy reply, FF.
I doubt I can scratch in 31 days, however, I do have a german wagerwagon and motorcycle kit that haven't even been taken out of the box, and since I figured your answer to three would be what it was, I was thinking about making a centipede-ish walker tank, but it that all depends, I may just do OOB with minor detail parts added, and focus mostly on the base. I'm trying to stay away from getting over-ambitious and treating this more like I HAVE to get it done, but still have fun with it.

Model Gallery / A Tribute to Jean Tinguely (Three day build)
« on: January 21, 2009, 08:49:52 PM »
As the title reads, this was a three day build I did for my 3D fundamentals class.
For the majority of the class we made paper sculptures, however for our final project our instructor gave us the freedom choosing other mediums to sculpt in. The only catch was that we had to familiarize ourselves with a sculptor, and make the sculpture of our own in homage to their art.

The artist I chose was Jean Tinguely, who quite frankly I've never heard of until that class. After reading a few biographies about him I began to grow interested. He is a Dada sculpture, which means his art is usually 'useless.' Have no value other than political satire and aesthetic appeal. Tingueley's machines usually self destruct, or just plain move with no use or function other than to look aesthetic. One of his most notable sculptures was 'Homage to New York' where he was overwhelmed by American materialistic views, and heavy industry. Therefore he made a sculpture, that over a slow coarse of time, as it moved, destroyed itself.

Brilliant if you ask me, so taking reference from a few of his sculptures (Most notably the death car) I came up with a small statue of what appears to be a useless machine. As the title suggest, one more, it was done in three days and was built with various parts from my scrap collection and held together with a mixture of superglue and a hot glue. (Horrible I know, but the outcome wasn't too bad) I gave it a once over with some tamiya white primer, then gave it a few loose coats of Tamiya Nato Black. The finished kit has some places where the paint didn't come through, and you can see some of the hot glue, but the sloppiness isn't far from something Jean himself would create.

Check out youtube for some of his machines, they are very interesting and full of political satire, there is even a museum of him in, if I recall right, is Sweden.

And, so... here are the pictures. I finished this a few quarters ago, and originally wasn't going to post it, but I guess I might as well since it's the only thing resembling a model that I've completed in a few years.

This is really interesting, and though I've yet to pump anything out for this site, I think that this would really push me to create soemthing with a deadline, no matte how good or bad the final results are. I'm actually really interested in this so I have a few questions.

1. Using PARTS from bandai gundam kits on the finished model?
2. Is there a size limit for the base? because making it all constrained onto a single sized base would be a bit of a challenge.
3. Are we allowed to start the planning process now, as long as we don't touch the parts?

Model In-Progress / Re: Doctor Who
« on: January 21, 2009, 09:25:37 AM »
This will be an interesting build to see, a buddy of mine is completely obsessed with Dr. Who, and when I told him about your build he made me log in to show him. When I told him about the "Vote Saxon" posters you want to do he just chuckled and said. "Vote Saxon, good times." and then explained something about season three... all Greek to me, I've never watched an episode of this show in my life. But I'm interested to see how this turns out, and so is my buddy.

I don't think I can add much more to what has already been said. This is just magnificent, I love how you put nearly more detail into your diorama than the actual model, however, your models are still equally as stunning! The first think I thought of, admittedly, when I saw the farmer was Wilfred Brimly going: "Diabeetus."  :razz:

Looking really good, I'm interested to see how it all shapes together, this build has been one of your more interesting to me as of late, your diorama work is always my favorite to see WIP for.

It's been a long while since I left a comment here (Or anywhere for a while) But man, Clee, this thing is looking exemplary. You're craftsmanship is outstanding, and engineering very accurate. This is one of the builds on here I'm looking really forward to seeing, and you hard work is really showing off. Hurry up and finish it! The suspense is killing me! Lol, But seriously, don't hurry, this thing will look amazing with the amount of time you are putting into it.

I can't agree more with what everyone else is saying. This is simply a fantastic job! The rust really makes this kit come to life, fantastic paint job. I can't find anything negative about this. (Though I don't usually look hard for the negative aspects)

It must be a privileged to see one of your works come to like like this Luca!

Another great job 5th!
You're SD's are so original I love it. I like how the wings fold up, it's very interesting. The only comment I have is the beam of the scythe being white. I'm not sure who it is, I think it's whitebase, who has a good guide on making cool beam effects on his site.
