Gouf Custom: Arms

My legs are feeling murderously bad after todays marathon. Feels like they're going to snap. So sitting down to more Zeon MS's. The arms are based on the gouf custom arms on the outside, but the zakuII on the inside, at least on the upper arms.

Looking neat, with all the heavy looks the Gouf/Zaku have.
Only thing is that I think the shoulders locked on a bit lower, or maybe the horned pads were a little bit less bulky, maybe neck line or so. What gets my suspicion up on this is the fact that as it is, this MS can't look to it's sides, since the shoulder pad would just block most of all vision, to do it he'd need to turn it's body to do so, and that just seems... uh... flawd.

How's the whip on the arm coming along? The arm part is already in place, but I honestly have no idea on the functioning of the whip itself. On the animes it looked like 40 miles long sometimes, but even as shown on the models, that thing couldn't possibly roll up inside the arms, so it ends up looking like some Shun-like whip, go figure.

Yep, I trumped the shoulder armor up 5% more. Doesn't look like it can "see" completely around the original shoulders as they were, though the show seemed to indicate that the unit could perform sensor extrapolation through obstacles (as Norris sat in his cockpit atop the building, scanning the structures below, the cockpit's monitor is shown "breaking down" the surrounding buildings). I would imagine that shoulder armor wouldn't be a problem in that case. The shoulders here aren't relaxed though, they rotate back downward in this mesh. I rotated the zakuIIs shoulders upwards a little too. This is just for the pose. Once the units are finished in their entirety I'll go back and rescale if I need to. That's generally how I bob about.

The wire seems to roll up in a spool like fishing line. http://www.flickr.com/photos/sandrum/3692864819/
