GP-04 Gundam Gerbera: Body

The body of the Gerbera at present is made up of parts from various mobile suits I've previously made, and then each part modified and fitted to look more like the GP-04. In particular I used the Gundam ver KA mesh as a jump off point for the torso armor, while the Gundam MKII was used to modify the front section of said armor. The innards are mostly modified MKII frame parts, with the rear part of the body frame similar to Katoki's version of the Gerbera in his FIX FIGURATION line. Because of the MKII's involvement, I decided to make the stomach and chest sections independently movable.

Astray Blue Frame: Short Rifle 2

The short rifles are loaded onto the forearms directly, but attached by the rotating elbow armor which "would" keep them in place in the PG version. Quite large looking in both bee-crafts drawings and this render so I'm happy about that.

Astray Blue Frame: Short Rifle

The short rifle seems to have also been designed by bee-craft for the PG Astray, though not created. It was featured as well in several magazines in its time. It appears to be specifically for the Blue Frame, though which version of the blue frame I have yet to determine. The design of this mesh was based on bee-crafts 'unrealized' idea. Need to remove some junk, but it's pretty close here.

Edit == at the very least, the FULL ARMOR PHASE SHIFT version of the Blue Frame does indeed use this set of rifles.

Astray Blue Frame: Legs 2

I changed the shape of the foot to reflect the design changes in the Master Grade version of the Blue Frame 2nd revise. However, since the plastic model's frame and foot are thinner than the version I created, I simply changed the shape of the foot rather than modeling a brand new one. The heel reflects any of the same ideas I decided to implement in the model. The foot is also somewhat "taller" than it's previous incarnation reflecting some ideas that Bee-Craft illustrated in Dengeki Hobby a few months ago as what might have been a PG "Blue Frame Second L" leg. Strangely, this illustration was absent from the actual model kits' manual. I also added the knife and the thingie that sits behind the waist on the blue frame.

A white section of armor that goes on the lower leg to protect the ankle joints seems to be what remains of the critical stuff. Small details on the leg reflective of the MG version might be an option if I further choose to.

Astray Blue Frame: Legs 1

Redoing the foot section. Just about done here. Time to hit some surfacing for that one too.

Astray Blue Frame: Tactical Arms II - 2

Stiiiiilll working on it. I haven't gotten the handle bits attached to it yet so that the blades can be attached to the arms. Still haven't finished texturing. One of the lower blades is overlapping it's upper "parent" as well...oops.

Edit-- combined 2 posts by accident. Also, I called this the "astra" post instead of "astray".

Astray Blue Frame: Tactical Arms II

I tried going from start to finish with the tactical arms II unit, instead of holding back the surfacing till the end. Took a while though. I've still got more to do as far as staining and burning but it's close to what I want. I missed some stuff near the multi-barrel that I'll get later. I tried to mix in some ideas from the first tactical arms unit into this one. Still in progress, but it's in its end stages... I hope.

Astray Blue Frame: Shoulders

I have most of the shoulder guards in there, but I'm sure that I'll have to stretch the sides out a little to make room for the PG size arms. If the head and backpack were that of the previous astray, it would basically complete most of the Second G version of the blue frame. As is, it still needs work but it's getting there...

Astray Blue Frame: Combat Knives

Didn't have time to do much more today again so I just worked on something small and simple. Armor Schneider combat knives for the Astray Blue frame(s). Too much spec, but I'm really just starting the surfacing. Haven't gotten to the gloss or specularity grime yet.

Astray Blue Frame Second Revise: Weapons Rack

Not really enough time lately to do much on this so I stuck with something relatively quick to do. Basically I modeled the weapons rack in the back and replaced the old backpack with it. Not much to say over that. Things are set to get busier soon, but I should be able to finish this before the end of the month -- a pace that I used to follow long ago.

Astray Blue Frame 2nd Revise: Head

The head, like the rest of the PG Astray is bulkier than the Blue Frame 2ndR, so I left the bulk but added the details. Took the red frame's textures and blue-shifted them (Photoshop) and reassigned them to the Blue Frame's mesh. The detail in the body is otherwise identical to the Red Frame's until I get to them.

Infinite Justice: First Shot

I'll be damned. Sometimes I do stuff now and again. I need to fix this one up a little more, something I always say, but this one has some bizarre problems that need help. First shot though...
