Yea, I know.

For once, it's like G00-themed entirely, lol.

I really hope that Condenser on the 0 Gundam is swap-able with a GN drive

Amber.Dawn 2009-04-20 21:05

Wasn't it confirmed that it was swappable?

Yes, it is, for both Robot Damashii AND HG 1/144.

np.

And, HG 1/144 0 Gundam has a "beam saber gimmick" too.

From what we can see from the pics Bandai released, the arm can bend back, the hand can hold the beam saber on the backpack, as if 0 Gundam is just about to pull it out :

And this pic (was from a while ago) confirms that the GN Condenser Backpack can be swapped for a GN Drive, at least for the HG model, that is.

Edit : Nope, found the pic!

Here is what I have been up to for some times... Finally getting somewhere with the ugly 1/100 NG of infinite justice...

I think I have started this one like 3 years ago... (notice the special edition stand... lol)

Thanks for the comments you guys left back then. I decided the head was fine as it was (I made it a little bit thicker and extended the neck by 1 mm. I thought those other modded you suggested looked almost like SD... With inflated head and stuff)

I still need to do some touch ups, and panel line + coat it + if I can find some decals to put on... It is a bit messy as it was the first time I actually tried to mod a model... I really messed up the tighs and part of the torso... But if you don't have your face in it... it looks decent... Haha If it was less messy, I would almost say it has the proportions of the MG (but mg's backpack is a lot less massive compared to the NG)

Dalsim007 2009-04-20 23:31

Well basically, I used some pla-plates to detail the shoulders, on the arms and scribed some more panel lines on them. I also used styrene to add some detail to the knee area and crotch.

I used some putty to make longer skirts all around the waist to cover the longer legs. And added some lenght to the wings and the head camera cover to give it a more aerodynamic look and to put some depth to the head (which I also deepened)
I also didn't like the short shoulder things, so I made them more like spikes.

I didn't like the hip balls joint at all, and I tried to replicate the way the hip joint is made on the ver 2.0 (no ball joint but one that has a peg to go in the upper tighs and in the crotch piece).

What was also really bad on this kit was the torso. It was way too short. I used the bottom cover as a fake internal display (i just placed it lower). At the same time, It covers the ball joint I placed there. I also tried to make the torso longer (what kind of humanoid robot as a cubic torso eh?) and originally had another ball joint there. But the heavy backpack prooved too much for it too keep a position. So I had to glue it in place. The other thing I did to the torso is reformed the mid section to look less like justice has one big breast in the middle of his chest. So I made the mid block smaller and cut the white part around it.

I think thats pretty much it.

I cannot agree more.

Now I need to decide whether my extra monies should go to a metal composite Z-Plus or the Regnant....

I had some helpful tips from Jaycee a couple of weeks ago on how to build a lightbox. Here's the result of my first photoshoot. Apologies for the amateurish work. I still need to work on how to edit the details on the pictures. :X

Meh, who cares about the quality of photos! As long as we can see the model, it's fine!

Anyway, AWESOME mod there, REALLY NICE WORK.

:heh::heh::heh::heh::heh:

Un1ver5e 2009-04-21 03:23

Heh, thanks. I posted my 'Celestial Gundam' here sometime back, but decided to bring him out again for the lightbox trial.

JayCee 2009-04-21 03:24

Nice start to you're lightbox Un1ver5e. I guess you're having fun with it :). Only thing that I can say that might be helpful is lower you're ISO setting if possible. That's the reason why the pics appear grainy. High ISO settings makes it more sensitive to more light. However in return creates more noise and grainy texture. So find the right balance of ISO on you're camera if that options available.

I'd say lowering the ISO a bit and lower shutter speed at same time. But I forgot what camera you had so not sure if either option is available.

After some work in photoshop to get rid of the cardboard gaps and lines I'm sure it'll look snazzy in no time :)

But all in all a valiant effort coupled with a well done kit *thumbs up*

GundamNanoha 2009-04-21 03:24

Sadly it prolly won't happen, coz I don't think big corps like Bandai are able to recognise the genius of fan ideas and / or USE them in their products.
