Mercurius: Armament

I've at least managed to get the basics of the legs and armament in place. But the original designs look so generic that probably adding some detail is in order. The beam gun is a stripped down ore-gun weapon while the shield is an in-place shield gun from the Leo.

Mercurius/Vayeate: Waist

Placeholder waist section in the same way the arms are added. Mostly it looks similar to the Tallgeese as I'm sure the series meant it to do so. But with some changes here and there, really minor stuff.

Mercurius/Vayeate: Arms

Some placeholder arms based on Tallgeese. I may need to work on the elbow armor to round it out a bit and turn on the smoothing.

Mercurius/Vayeate: Body 2

Made some compromises regarding the detail and what the Tallgeese brings to get the general shapes. At this point the only difference between Mercurius and Vayeate is the fin on the head.

Mercurius/Vayeate: Body

Struggling to get the Tallgeese body to work with the more generic looking Mercurius/Vayeate. I feel like these two were Tallgeese ideas for wing that the producers didn't like, but worked out as two other high power suits instead.

Mercurius / Vayeate : Head 1

Willing to see how far we can take Tallgeese's basic forms into other MS's in the Wing timeline so starting on modifying the Tallgeese head to fit some of the Mer/Vay flow.

Working on it sparringly still. I have few clues only as to what the full thing looks like so lots of liberties are being taken.

Altron: Dragon Fang

It's basically a palette swap in some ways.I have no idea if there's actually supposed to be a shield there. I remember the original Altron having the shield, through.

Altron Custom: Dragon Fang

I suppose that only one has to be built for this to work. I wanted to move on a bit but to say that the Altron is "done" is a smaller task than starting an new suit or scene over again.

Leo: Flight Pack

I like the idea of the extensibility of the Leo. I feel like an MG Leo and some extra packs should be something that Bandai pumps out eventually. For now this is just a set of educated guesses.

Leo: Flight Pack

Working on a flight pack for the Leo with good old internet pics, but with a less unibody look, if possible. I don't think I ever really thought about these packs for the leo when watching the tv show so long ago, but I'm surprised at the extensibility of these suits, despite how easily they blow up in the anime.

Shenlong: Trident

So finally jammed the trident back there, though I'm not sure this is exactly how it's "supposed" to be positioned.

Shenlong: Mostly

A bit more on the dragon fang and some texturing stuff is in place. I'll need to probably bump the render settings a bit, but I also forgot to make the beam trident.

Shenlong: Shield

I think the details of the shield maybe need to have better pop as some of the lines are blurred or covered by distance. And still the dragon fang needs a bit of tuning.

Shenlong: Dragon Fang 2

So instead of having the claw fold backward, it keeps the forward slant but uses the Altron Custom leash instead of either of the original Shenlong/altron extended arms. Not sure how I feel about how it turned out yet. Maybe sub the chain bits with "arm" bits.

Shenlong: Dragon Fang 'Custom'

I'm torn: I absolutely love the Katoki Hajime asthetic of the Shenlong/Altron, the lack of reach on the Shenlong concept kills the reach of the ms in general. I feel like if this was the retconn, then a lot of the capability in the original animation just wouldn't be possible. So I'm looking at adding similar reach to the dragon fang by adding the length of the head similar to the Altron. This is because while the original Shenlong has a long right arm folded under the shoulder guard, I feel like the Katoki asthetic may be too violated by reverting to that. We'll see.

Feels a bit off, but still working on some of the details for the legs. Feeling like I should update the old wing model for this.

Shenlong: Arms

I feel like Katoki can be really no-nonsense when it comes to arm design in general. I feel like there's a lot of similarity to the Unicorn in these ones. But I suppose "an arm is an arm" as well.

Shenlong (Katoki ver): Head 1

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.

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.

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.
