GBWC 2011 - EA designs Entry - Veyron Deathwing

Alot of you may already know this project of mine from the Apocalypse showdown on MAC forums. This is also my FIRST TIME entry on this years GBWC 2011. Whether I will be able to finish the horse in time for the competition is still uncertain for now I only wish to keep the quality high on the horseman it self.

With his sword

Size Comparison with a 1/144 Zaku - I most probably still have to extend somewhere on the lower leg and the feet 

My Latest Mods

Mods on the backpack - Some people are already cursing me for what I did with the huge wings and backpack, well If you guys thought I was done, you were wrong! I added some more fins to the backpack to adhere to the "spiky and pointy" theme of the kit. I dug up some scrap from my strike noir and aile strike packs and temporarily placed it on the thrusters at the backpack. The results were very satisfying

 Unfortunately I couldn't attach the shotels because it's very hard to pose everything right plus the small feet aren't that stable, so I hope you can make do for what updates I have for now. :)

The strike Noir Fins I added on the backpack overlook the shoulder adding to the original spikes on the shoulder armor, I was surprised how those two pieces increased the impact of the shoulder spikes :)

The Knees
I have this theory that, the most detailed part of most kits are the legs, if you think about it, it was on the legs or knees to be specific that bandai first applied the "shifting" armors, later on it went to the arms and then it went to the other scales, now we have shifting armor even on 1/144 kits :)

I used some parts from my MG deathscythe - the arm guards and the side skirts. I designed them to utilize the shifting Knee armor that the original sinanju leg had. I made use of this to further enhance the detail of the kit, and the outcome didn't disappoint

The shifting Armor - Pictures show from step 1 to step 3 :)

Amazing isn't it?? It amazes me even though I built it :))

Well that's all of the updates I have right now I may make more blog posts about the previous progress on this kit so that others who will visit my blog maybe able to view the "transformation" this kit underwent :)
I'll be doing some more detailing tonight, hopefully when the sun is up tomorrow I can take good pictures and make another blog post :)

thanks for viewing!
