Shenlong (Katoki ver): Head 1

mobile suit report gundam wing aries tallgeese leo aries shenlong katoki
Figured the Aries needs something else to go against. Already have 3 antagonist MS for Wing, may as well add some protagonists. I feel like there are a ton of great looking Shenlong's in 3d so I'll throw my hat in as well. Quick start of the head.

Leo: Space Pack

I'm pretty sure the color is not to anime schema so I'll be adjusting that. Surely it needs more work on the backpack proper as well since there isn't much detail there that I was able to discern from the Katoki design.

Aries: Space Laser

From anime images I have no idea where the trigger is to the space laser.. Possibly on the right side where the Shenlong seems to grip "something".

Aries: Space Laser

I don't think it's an official weapon for Aries, but the laser is (attempted to be) used by two Aries at least once in the Wing series -- so giving it a go.

Aries: Basic Surface

Wanted to try out different weapon versions but was wondering about what to do on the surface, so started to fiddle with that.

Aries: Transform

Added hardpoints on the legs, added the weapons and tried to work on the transform. Working on the surfacing at the same time.

Aries: Legs

Legs are based on a mishmash of the tallgees' boosters and thinner leo lower legs and feet. I'm fairly sure the lower legs are supposed to collapse into the upper section in flight.

Aries: Body

Using Freedom a bit to help with the body and the tallgeese arms and general geometry as body/torso placeholders while trying to iron out the basics.

Aries: Head

Based on an old helmet and some ideas from the Leo, working on getting the basic forms of the head in place.

Aries: Main Engine 1

Had an idea that I could build an Aries on the Leo, but the leo's body is stalkier (and torso wider). Still, there may be some positives in using Leo as a base for Height, etc.

Leo: mostly

A quick splat of paint to see how the Leo looks. I need to figure out the arm shield bits, as I've only seen pictures of it. Also no weapon yet.

Leo: Legs

Using the Tallgeese legs mostly in-form for the Leo. Messing with the knee cover and ankles to get closer to what I think it might look like.

Tallgeese

So finally getting some of the textures done. Makes me wonder if I should redo the wing as well as the zero. Would like to get these Leos done though...
..of course it still lots of details to do...

Tallgeese: Booster

The boosters are mostly there. I was worried that they would open incorrectly. Needs a bit more detail, but they're good placeholders for now.

Tallgeese: Armament

Mostly it's in place, but I've goofed how the armament attaches,..I think the attachment arms are upside down now that I look at it.

Just now getting to the shield. I'm fairly certain there's similarity between this and the Leo vesrion.

Tallgeese: Legs

Got some basics in for the legs. Some detail is in order, but the anime doesn't make it look like much is there beyond some that is in the model kits.

Leo: Arms

For the leo, just getting the shoulder guards reduced but leaving the arms almost otherwis like the tallgeese.

Tallgeese: Arms

Feels like I'm slacking off a bit. The arms are finally starting to come along. Looking at illustrations it really does look like most of the arms are cut/paste with Leo. Will try.

Murasame: Re Transform

Fiddling around with the murasame transformation. I messed up previously with the arms and it was hard to tell. It's getting better I hope.

Tallgeese: Waist

Finally getting around to checking the waist to see how far we have to go. Some sharpening is in order I think.

Maybe check some alignment.

Tallgeese: Waist

I'm supposing that the Leo and Tallgeese bodies are very similar so starting with Tallgeese and will make adjustments to it for the Leo. Started on the waist.

Murasame: ReSurface

Still looking at revisiting the carrier with the murasame. But I thought I'd redo the surfaces here as well.

Saviour: Refresh

Fiddled around with Saviour a bit to see what could be refreshed. Going through the textures and giving some updates. It would be neat to see a master grade one day...

Leo: Head

Originally thought about reusing the Tallgeese head, but it really doesn't seem to fit the same on the Leo so just redid the head completely to get closer to the Leo profile.

Leo: Body

mobile suit gundam wing leo tallgeese
Basing diffs between Leo and Tallgeese from images like this where it looks like minor differences characterize the outward appearance. Starting with the body on this one. It would be interesting to see if the Leo head has any real similarity to the Tallgeese. I believe on the tv show, the face of the Tallgeese looked like a mask on a Leo's head. Not sure if that holds.

Tallgeese: Body

Finally doing something with the body here. Since the Leo is strikingly similar, thinking about making those small changes for that MS as well.

Wanted to start something that wasn't Seed. Haven't done any Wing bits so I figured I'd try for a Tallgeese. \

Took the model through some wear on textures to see where it went. I wasn't looking for something incredibly worn, just a little tested in the random debris fields.

Buster: Weapons

Took a while for me to get to the cannons. Resizing them to be more like the Akutsu version in the Strike PG manual. There aren't too many rear shots in any of Beecraft's PG concept art to know exactly what he did for the design. Plenty on the MG side, but that artist tends to slim down mobile suitd for the Master Grades. So some of guessing..

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.

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.

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.

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.
