XV104 Riptide conversion finished


 I was not willing to pay the price GW has planned to put as a tag on the Riptide so I converted a Bandai Gundum model until it fitted my expectations.
I also took some pictures before painting it but I have yet to find them. :p

That is kind of...way awesomer than the GW version!

Great job I love the huge weapon.

Hi Tim, thank you. I combined the Ioncannon and Railraifle for it.

That is a beautiful piece of work. Which Gundam model did you use? This is a great idea for sourcing less expensive large models.

Don't suppose you'd like to do a tutorial?

Hi Mattias,

I used the G-Bouncer (costs about 10,- €) 1:144 advanced grade. As a matter of fact I bought two of those and plan to reprodce this suit. I will then try to make a step by step although there is a lot of greenstuff modelin included.

The more greenstuffing, the better! I love seeing what people manage to do with scratchbuilding and sculpting, and this is just superb!
Your conversion is amazing! The miniature herself is not in a dynamic position but it imposes a presence.
A perfect miniature!

good continuation

I will get on constructing the second one by end of july. Stay tuned. Sorrily there is not a lot that can be done about the pose to get more dynamic. Unles.... Hmmm.... I have an idea
Congratulations on a greater good well done

Thank you. Always trying to further the good of other TAU. :)
