MODELER: Asrul HaziminMODEL TITLE: Gundam Barbatos [Project Noir]
MODIFICATION TYPE: custom details, custom color scheme, scratch built parts, LED installation
KITS USED: HG 1/144 Gundam Barbatos
WORDS FROM THE MODELER:
"Transforming a slender HG 1/144 scaled Gundam into a more muscular, steam-punk-looking mecha. Being a passionate mechanical engineer myself, I have strong tendency to change the design into a heavily mechanized mecha incorporating hydraulic cylinders, pipes and fulcrums.
Some mini LEDs were also incorporated. And this is the first project where I build the weapon from scratch, using pla plates, grille and barbatos ankle armours.
This project is also an experimentation in dealing with black color, which is known to "swallow-up" the details. Light"
