STAGE 1 - MOCKUP
Inspired by the Gundam’s anime, 'Gundam Breaker Battlogue', the client has requested us to make a kit bash with the theme of an EXAM Gundam that is specifically made to hunt and destroy Newtypes.
Head unit from RX-78-01[FSD] GUNDAM FSD E.F.F.
Chest unit from GUNDAM GROUND URBAN COMBAT TYPE
Shoulders unit from RX-79BD-2 BLUE DESTINY UNIT 2
Arm unit from RX-78-01[FSD] GUNDAM FSD with the Gatling gun and beam saber attached
Waist and leg unit from RX-78XX PIXY
Backpack unit from FA-78-3 FULL ARMOR GUNDAM 7TH
MODIFICATION DRAFT DETAIL:
For the Backpack to fit onto the back of the chest unit, new holes are to be created.
Putty to cover up the existing hole, after the putty is set, PLA plate will be cemented onto it, and the new hole will be drilled accordingly to the back pack peg size
Rifle attachment instead of just being a holder with peg, a new holster will be created with inspiration from - https://youtu.be/XGl07jN2VC4
Backpack cannon yellow scope is requested to be changed. The scope will be built from the scratch using PLA plates with a more squarish design rather than a big round yellow scope.
The drum mag from the Gatling gun will be connected to the back of the waist with a single peg for more dynamic poses
The current design of the front skirt is too 'pointy'. To fit the overall design of the kit, the edge of the skirt will be sanded/cut off to more of a squarish design.
STAGE 2 -SCRIBING
At this stage, we are adding scribe line with a 0.2mm scribing blade to give the kit a more mechanical look.
The front skirts are swapped to GUNDAM GROUND URBAN COMBAT TYPE to fit the overall design.
Notches and PLA plates will be added on the next stage.
