00 Project: Deus / Dio de Espadachin

I'll only be able to work on this later this year in all probability, but well, here it is:

00Deus / "Dio de Espadachin"
So far, my count is twelve blades. If I add the two shields, that goes up to a potential 16 blades (two blades on each shield). There are two 00 kits - will probably divide it into a "male" and "female" mecha. and with three different 0-raiser units, I may just end up going sentai on the colors.

Greenhills Gundam Haul

After getting back from Greenhills today, I added some more stuff to a project, and this is the result:

I don't want to think about how much this project will eventually cost.

But I have to admit, it looks great.

I'll be posting a mega review of this particular design soon.

Getting Back on the Gundam Bike: The Dynames Project

It's been a sort of running joke that I haven't been able to build a Gundam kit to conclusion (painted and all) for almost five years. Here's my start-up project. It's slow going, but I think this will work. 

Gundam 00 Dynames Light Recon Ver.Ra

The idea behind this build is to create a Dynames variant that is designed more for very fast combat. To that end, Most of the armor has been stripped, and the weapons have been changed to reflect this philosophy as well.

Yes, the Cherudim is yet another project in line.

I had acquired the kit with some substantial missing parts - specifically, it had no weapons or any of the armor cloak system. The rifle is from an old Evangelion kit, and the revolver is from an Armored Core set - the cannon on the Cherudim's left shoulder is paired with it.

One of the more radical modifications is how I split parts of the back thrusters. I've never been comfortable with the "Booster Butt" idea, so I managed to at least minimize it.

The hands are taken from an MG Wing Custom Zero (they're extras).

This is the latest addition to the unit - which may or may not make the final cut. The shield is from a 1/100 Astraea. The hip waist plates are extra pieces from 1/100 Astraea kits - specifically, extra parts for the central area of the Exia's shield.

Am working on this one slowly - hopefully, it will work out.
