1/100 OverFlag Customization (A-LAW Flag Revenge) – Part I

My current 1/100 OverFlag custimization project (Part I)

Bascially I will be doing some mods to the 1/100 OverFlag kit. My intent is to redesign components as follows:

1. Two extra wing(antenna) on the head.
2. New shoulders…I like big bulky shoulders. The original shoulder is quite lame.
3. Extension to the existing wing. The extension will be curved upward.
4. New chest to be extended longer then the original chest.
5. GN Drive attach onto the existing flight pack.
6. Customized shield…..never liked the funny spinning shield.
7. Extra boosters and sheldings for the legs.
8. New cover for the lower torso.
9. Maybe……maybe some customization to the existing gun..not sure yet.
10. Custom paint job… to match color of the A-LAW’s Ahead.
11. And the most fun part, which I am looking forwad to… I am gonna make custom decals too!!!!

The following are some initial work on the kit & customization mods… More update will follow shortly…

1/100 Hi Nu Gundam

My 1/100 Hi Nu Gundam Project

I started this project by first checking out the building manual…and quickly I realized I didn’t like the original color scheme, the design of the shield, some of the parts attached to the back & design of the weapons. So I decided to customize everything that I didn’t like, and make it my very own customized Hi Nu Gundam!!! And I had actually spent an afternoon to think about how to approach this. So here are the customizations:

1. Color: I dreaded the Light Blue paint in the original design…..and since Gundam Guy likes darker tone colors, I choose something just a tad darker…and went with Grey Blue. The original design only had 2 primary color, Blue and White, with a bit of silver here and there. And I thought it would be cool if I added one more color pattern to it…and selected my favorite Dark Grey. I then drew out on a piece of paper the torso, arms & legs, then using color pencils to color my design of the paint scheme, this serves to help me remember what & where to paint, and limit any chance for dumb mistakes.

2. Head: I thought the head looked kinda plain in mostly white color…so I decided to use a very fine model saw to carve two more panel lines on both side of the head, paint some area with Dark Grey, and the antenna in Yellow.Eyes are re-done using Silver & Clear Orange paint. The camera unit screen on top of the head…I just use the original Green sticker…yeah I know…thats lame, but got lazy.

3. Shield: The front part of the shield comes in 3 pieces… 2 pieces White, and the main piece Blue…when put together..you get this zigzag White & Blue design…which I personally didn’t like (everyone’s taste is different). So I used putty and made all 3 pieces into a single piece, then redesign the paint patterns.

4. Back: Attached to the lower back of the Hi-Nu Gundam are two long canisters, which in my opinion looked quite out of place compare to the neat design of everything else. So instead of using those ugly parts, I attached 2 customized boosters instead (from my spare model parts).

5. Weapon: The weapons that came with this MG are horrible… They looked plain…and looked like something a GM would use. So I attached parts to the beam rifle to make it look better. And also use some customize weapons (from my spare model parts)

6. Decals: I used decals from other left-over decals belonging to the UC era.
