Buster: Arms / Legs

The arms and legs are of course based on the X100 so I've left them as-is the same way they are on Duel and Strike, but the forearm and lower legs are slightly changed to compensate for the armor differences.

Buster: Arms 1

Feels like I'm getting somewhere with the armor changes. Compromising between the illustrated PG concept and the Master Grade plastic model details. It's kind of a mish-mash as usual.

Buster: Waist

Doodling around with the waist section, similar to what was done for Duel... that is, using the Strike mesh as a jump-off point.

Buster: Body 2

The backpack doesn't size well yet compared to the body. Will diddle around with this for a bit until it fits and I'm satisfied with the look.

Buster: Body 1

Finally getting back to this one. Just moving stuff around to look more buster-y with the combination of Duel and Strike builds. Not sure about the backpack so I'll probably wing that as well.

Buster: Start

I really really wanted to get all of the X-100 machines, but considering the number of variants, it may not happen. At the very least, the original 5 stolen X-numbers would be fair game. So started on the Buster head, hoping again to modify based on the PG Strike stature, but with changes more comensurate with that of the BEECRAFT concept art for Buster -- where the armament is monsterous looking.

Duel: Boosters

I decided that a close combat mobile suit in space may need better booster support, so I redid some of the backpack to suit extending the top and bottom row boosters and reposition them diagonally.

Duel: Arms

mobile suit gundam seed destiny stargazer 3d mesh cg sandrum duel assault shroud
So a lot of the arms are based on the PG Strike, Beecraft's own imaginings of the X-100 series mostly lean that way. The shoulders are mostly based off of a combination of the PG Strike and what I can find of the Duel stuff. Kind of a hodge-podge there. In general, the shield is mostly the same so I just used the strike shield here. Now a beam rifle and re-jiggling the details is in order.

Duel: Lower Torso

Worked a bit of the body again to get it closer to the beecraft version, but it still has a bit to go. The legs I've updated without adding any of the Master Grade detail. The waist was a grab-bag of what was on the MG and the beecraft vision.

Duel: Body 2

Felt like it took a while to get to this point. Still trying to look for a good trade-off for the details vs the sizing. Of course a lot is still based off the Evo strike.

Duel: Body 1

Jumping off with some small changes to the Evolve Strike body. The frame should basically be the same, but the armor changes are still somewhat minimal in appearance (ostensibly).

Duel: Head 2

I wanted to focus a little on the head more than anything else since, aside from the base MS's simple-ish appearance, it's basically one of the only MAJOR differences in the x-100 lineup. A lot of the remainder of the MS is so similar to the other x-100's that a great deal can be done just jumping off another suit (astray or strike) mesh. Of course, even then there are some small changes to be had...

Duel: Head Start

I believe I had hoped to make a Duel unit earlier in the project, but I never did start it. Being an X-100 unit it should be possible to leverage some of the Strike / Astray to put it together. It has its own details though, so of course I'll try to be careful of that.

Gouf Custom: Follow up

I never seem to have done anything with the gouf custom in terms of continuing after basic surfacing. I'll see what I can do to resurect that one, along with the 08th ms team from forever ago.

Impulse: Sword Silhouette

I never did log the sword silhouette changes I made all those years ago. I think there's still some of the logos I wanted missing at the time. Maybe some paint on this would help too.

Impulse: Blast Silhouette 4

Getting the Blast Impulse surfacing in. A lot of it is pretty ok. Missed a few bumps. I feel like I want to try to get an Abyss backpack together somehow.

Impulse: Blast Silhouette 3

I did get the blaster parts into the silhouette and am generally ok with how it looks. I may have fudged the scale of the blaster parts, but I'm not 100%. The rest of the detail can be mapped in.

Apsalus II: II

I hadn't touched this one in ages and figured I should see where it is. It isn't bad but it could do with some touch ups.

Impulse : Blast Silhouette 2

mobile suit gundam seed Impulse zgmf x56s 3d mesh cg sandrum
Still working by eye so some of this is probably super off, but it looks like it at least fits. Used the force silhouette as the starting point for sizing. Hopefully the larger cannons work out.

Impulse : Blast Silhouette 1

mobile suit gundam seed Impulse zgmf x56s 3d mesh cg sandrum
I feel like I should finish the main impulse line-up of silhouettes. Giving the old try to the blast silhouette based on the older work from the horrible version I had many years ago -- (based on the no grade model kit I think). Winging this one a bit based on the Sword Silhouette.
