View Full Version : Exia's Custom Exia

Haha! I have zero money for paint, so since I have no clue when this might even begin I thought I'd just show it off as is. I'm not going to tell you the colors I'm going to make certain parts and such.

Now the model part is, well, what you see is what it has. But the technical specs, like if it was in a show, are quite fun. I'm glad I thought of them. 4 beam sabers, no daggers, 2 GN long blades and 2 shields.

The shields are the fun part, if it was in a show, the shields would have bit sensors built in, plus if you own an Exia you'll notice the GN blades just above the handle and the shields front horn sort of line up so the shields would have GN long blades built into the shields as well. That's my own personal add in, and as you can probably count that makes it an 8 blade system. In a perfect world I'd own the Zwei's buster sword to make 9, but I'm still debating on whether or not to go searching for a sword that'll fit.

After that I wanted to add something wing like, so GN Sefer to the rescue! In my version the GN Sefer was given a full upgrade, the "proto-bits" are not prototypes, in fact they would provide 2 more shield bits along with enhance GN beams. As well as enhanced particle control/boost/speed. The GN Sefer is more like, a GN Sefer Kai.

I basically wanted a flying Exia, and I got it.

Warning. K.P.S.A.!

Wow! That build is amazing. the paintjob is just like astraes, and the whole hardware is just simply superb.

There's no paintjob, it's the Astraea Type F model. It comes with the conversion parts for Exia.

Custom Paintjob or not, it's still awesome!

Thanks, truth be told, this came into fruition thanks to me just thinking about an alternate reality for Gundam 00. Sorta a fanfiction, just not written down.

Actually, if anyones interested in what it would sound like, PM me and I'll share just the gist of what's different/what I ended up changing for fun.

Looks pretty good. I would paint the flight pack though, or paint the whole thing (If you wanted to). Makes it even all the more custom, and you can always get another type F.

This is the one I'll be painting, but as I said in my first post I have zero money for paint. Also, this is my 2nd Type F.

Is that Rasiel backpack?

It's the GN Sefer, which I guess is Raisel's backpack.

So , you have and Rasiel?

Exia

I don't have Rasiel, just GN Sefer.

Hmmm , and i otherwise :)

I don't quite understand what you mean there. Does that mean you have Rasiel but not GN Sefer?




Also, anyone have any comments on the non model ideas I put into it? Maybe I could do a battle with my custom Exia in the battleground? LOL

That's right , Rasiel , but no Sefer.

Well I had a break thru, I was able to create a 9th sword for my custom Exia. The sword is made mostly from an old Epyon 1/144 wing plus a thing to make a handle. I guess you can call it a GN Proto Buster Sword.

I'd still like some input on the non-model stuff I added, maybe with some encouragement I might just make a 00 fanfic.

That's the shields secret, 1 hidden blade. Technically, a GN Long and Short blade cut off right above the handle and super glued to a spare Exia shield to show what it looks like. Even though I used 2 blades, I consider it 1 large double side blade. Thus, I can keep it with 9 blades.

Nice use of a modded epyon wing bro!

Exia
November 16, 2011, 9:28 AM
Thanks, still can't figure out how I made it. The more I add to this kit the more likely I may end up writing the 00 fanfic I've had sitting in my head.

Kenico
November 16, 2011, 2:26 PM
DO IT! I could use a good read from my FanFic and SFAs (BTW has anyone seen him? more than likely hes playn MW3. wouldnt blame him though, a friend brough his copy over and fellas...BEST FPS EVER!!! Cant wait for that, AC: REV, and Skyrim) anyway on topic, i will say one thing about this kitbash: I would not want to go toe to toe with that beast lol nice job on the shield and blade (IM still tryn to figure out how you did it lol) hope thats not the final product of this beast and you have more additions to make.

What? No mention of my fic? :( Fine, I can tell when I'm not interesting enough *Cries in corner*

Definitely go for it man, always nice to see some new work out there

Oh Yeah! i Forgot Lineage :( my bad bro... dont forget to see that two (along with Zeonic Knighthood and Gundam Advent) lol

hope thats not the final product of this beast and you have more additions to make.

Aside from getting a 2nd Exia Shield and a 2nd Pair of GN Long and Short blades, which will happen as I have a few more Exia models to get and there'll be the spares I need, and then paint then it'll be done. I don't see myself adding anything else.

As far as the fanfic, it's moved from stage I to stage II. Not close at all to writing it, but hammering out alot of details. Writing will be atleast stage IV.

Take your time on both specifically the fanfic. me and my bro "forged"* our work carefully for five years before we worked up to courage to finally posted our creation.

*when i mean forged im using the Brownsmith term.

It's actually not going to be that hard, I'm thinking this as more of an alternate reality. I need to rewatch 00 and just make some notes on what's different. Some stuff will be taken out, some stuff added, some stuff added/changed to characters/mobile suits. Along with other add ons.

I need to let it be said, thanks to this thread (http://www.gundamforums.com/showthread.php/86-Coloring-book.?p=15030#post15030), I now have 24 different paint options, which I'll be asking about soon enough. Now either based between 3 colors (12) and 2 of those colors (other 12). And I don't know which one I like the most.

***EDIT***
Actually it just turned into 6 options.

***ANOTHER EDIT***
I have chosen my colors and option.

I finally bought some paint, but since I'm engulfed with the awesomeness of my Geno Saurer, painting has taken second stage. I'll need to test them on some runners, but I overall I think I've figured out how I'm painting this. Basically I'm gonna take it apart by section, like the head, then put the rest in a box away from my sight or senses and put all effort into one body part until paint is finished on that particular section then go on to the next.

That's how I do, actually. Every now and again I'll attempt to separate every piece by the color I intend to paint them, but it never works for long.

So, it's a method thats already been used. That's good, I wasn't sure. I thought I was just pulling it out of my ass. I think that if this goes well I'm going to paint my Red Frame. And if that goes well, I'll paint my Deathwing.

Exia
January 11, 2012, 4:58 AM
Chose the 2 paints I'll be using, the method I'm hoping I can use well, but can't get to the table I want to use as a workplace as we still have a giant ass Santa Clause on it still. Turns out I wasn't able to match the dark red from the Exia with paint so those parts are gonna get painted in the chosen paint. First things first though, I'm only going to do the basic form I set for my Exia. The GN long blades, 2nd shield, GN Sefer, and that other shield that shows its' hidden blades are going to get painted after things are all set and perfect on Exia.

Expect to see a WIP thread from me within the next month or so, unless I end up buying more Gunpla and build those first instead of painting. HAHAHAHA!

Not to mention, I still have my Geno Saurer to finish up. Only have its' weapons, both arms and legs. Plus whatever else to add.
