Gundam Build: Wing Gundam Zero Custom!!

Hello Interwebers,
You may remember me from my Cloud Strife Fusion sword build, not its time for something different.
Today I will be starting a Gundam suit. I have picked one of my most favorite Mobile Suits, the Wing Gundam Zero Custom (Wing Zero), as seen is the Gundam Wing Endless Waltz movie.

This is what it looks like. This is a 1/60 scale model (Not my model)






Now this is be a semi-speed build, so I wont be taking pictures of everything.

Also to be pointed out. I am going with a pep file that's meant as a papercraft model version, and just scaling up and modifying it to be worn as a costume. I do not take credit for these files. I found these files over a year ago and can't find where I got them, or who to credit. If someone does find who to credit I will gladly edit this post, as this would not be possible with out them.


Ok! So let's get started! Gundam semi-speed build! Start!

Welcome to my work station where I build and airbrush my Gunpla (Gundam model kits). I will be using this small, cramped area to cut and glue.



So I always start Gundam costumes from the head. So I'm starting from the head.
Scaled the pep to fit my small head.

Good luck Takaaaa! I wanted to do the death scythe version of this but never got around to it. I'm working on a big pep project to at the moment but man is it time consuming. If only we had a bunch of people that could help cut out/mark folds/glue it together.

Good morning interwebers,
So I got up early and started on the torso. Started with the red section and added the center and shoulders.









I may make the shoulder vulcans actually able to open with servos. so thats why they are only half built, I will come back to that later.

I was also able to just finish the upper arm before getting breakfast, but got into a rhythm and just kept at it until I finished the whole left arm including the gauntlets.





Time to go get some food. Will finish the other arm when I get back

Awesome start you have there. I'm in the planning stages for Deathscythe Hell Custom myself.

Just curious, but how are you going to keep cool in that costume?
