Well, I did say back when I first signed up to the forum I was going to abuse myself for my first Gundam starting things off with a kitbash, but here it is, the RX-177-G1 Battalion

Going from this oringally...

Nope, I just believe in making sure whatever it is that gets shot stays dead.

Yeah, this is not the Mobile Suit you call in for precision strikes...unless leveling a city block is the type of precision strike you need. :)

Le-sigh, well, for better lack of things, the damn pack harness didn't hold up when I tried posing him him a bunch, so it got scrapped..so I did what anyone does in these times, I refitted his support weapon and posed him with that.

Well, looks like I wanted to get this one out of the way. So here is the newest edition, the K7-6A5 Celerity.

Going from this...

Needless to say the paint job and tail were the two hurdles I was racking my brain to over come, glad she turned out like she did. Well, on to the next...

uhh a very ambitious camoflage. i like it.how is it made?u used a pattern or just free style?

Darzer
May 23, 2016, 2:51 AM
Free styled, studied a LOT of cheetah pics, figured what paints I had would fit it, semi-globed dry brushed the dual laired the coat, spotted it and there ya go. Trust me, it was a fun project, just a bit nerve wracking to figure out.

- - - Updated - - -

Decided to keep this Jesta Cannon a straight OOB and just give it a little wear and tear in it's appearance.

Some great work, if you go all over the Jester with a light sanding using some 1500 grit paper it gives a nice matt effect, Its quite effective.

Very nice - never enuf dakka :D

The Celerity looks very sleek - what are the claws and tail from?

Zaku
May 23, 2016, 4:31 PM
aww no weathering wash or dry brushing?

Darzer
May 27, 2016, 9:49 AM
I was seriously testing myself on the weathering and dry brushing when you sent that link. Still not getting it down. Once I do I will go back over this one and add it. :)

Claws were pulled from another kit called Manji Bones Tiger Bones, the tail was left over parts thrown together.

I'll have to dig around and see if I have any.

Well, finally finished up number four out of the seven. Out of them, probably the fiercest in battle, obviously not the cleanest due to the grease stains and lackluster on apperance, say hello to the X01-Sengoku Astray Kami...

Well, number five is done. Pretty much was constant work throughout the night after the forum group chat, but here she is, newest member to the seven, the X31-GS Athena...

I love how you used one of the Virtue's condenser cannons there. Is that supposed to fire beams or live rounds in your version?

Virtues condenser cannon I decided to use as a mortar system. However, the back half of the right arm is the massive beam cannon. :)

Check out the Mr Weathering Color. They work fairly well, you just need a q tip with a little enamel thiner on it to get the access off, if you want that is
