View Full Version : Old Build, Crossbone X2

I found a bunch of my old pictures on my external HD. I've been updating my Fb page with the pics, but figure i should share here as well.

The funny thing is, i distinctly remember the judges at BAKUC aka old GBWC event telling me that only having the cape on one side made no sense. Fast forward 5 years... and they make a kit like that... the fenice. LMAO

Had i did this same design today, the lining would be much nicer, and the paint would probably look a heck of a lot better lol

Maybe you should do another kit with colony camo.

Eh, nothing comes to mind that i'd want to do this to right now.

Clearly the judges didn't have a clue as to what they were talking about. The anime department clearly knew about the small "half capes" when they made Wing in '95. See Treize, Noin, and Zechs, among others. Given that precedent, it wasn't all that surprising when the Fenice, a modified Wing, was equipped with a similar type of cape.

Good work on the model though.

Well that wasn't the reason it didn't place, there is alot wrong with the kit paintwise, and there were a bunch of better kits. This was the first year i actually tried entering. My Char ball won 1/100 anyway so i still did well in the category. lol

I was talking about their criticism of the half cape. The X2 obviously is a bit rough . . . by your standards. ;)

Yea i getcha i was just adding that, as rereading it, it might come off as though i was saying that that is the reason it didn't place.
