8 posts in this topic

Posted

Being built along side the Gelgoog Jager is the Kampfer. Its a high speed, heavily armed, lightly armored mobile suit designed for hit-and-run attacks on EFSF patrols and shipping, after the One Year War it becomes a choice mobile suit for former Zeon troops that have turned to piracy.

Color will be Model Master Dunkelblau RLM 24 and I'll MV Lenses to the bazooka's scope cameras.

An overdue update, Kampfer itself is almost ready for primer while still chipping away at the weapons.

Working on the weapons; 2x 192mm shotguns, 2x 360mm bazookas and 2x sturmfausts. I'll add MV Lenses to the sights on the bazookas and replace some missing details.

Added .04 half round styrene to the shoulders replacing the thinner molded details.

Thinned the thruster bells and added tube to replace the broken mounting pins.

Cool work. I never got into Gundams because I only ever saw the original movie in Japanese, which is still confusing. The kits weren't readily availabe in the US back the.

I do like the look of the older mechs vs. the newer ones, though.
