Well, this is rather later than I had intended, but here's some WIP pictures of my first MG GunPla, a Tallgeese I. Ultimately, it's destined to be a parts donor, but mostly for accessories only; I'll have to find something to do with the base suit. The two girls were helpful...mostly...during the build.
The box. It's about the size of the box for my Delta Kai; plenty of parts. Surprisingly, the RAcaseal box was also about the same size, too, and that one had more sprues.
Not that there aren't plenty of sprues in the Tallgeese, though. Luckily, they're light enough for Shinki to carry around.
Putting together the torso. Gundam torsos are always so small...
Æeta decided to try on the finished head. I'm not sure how she got it on, but it predictably got stuck.
Not to be deterred, Æeta went for the arm next. This time, the fit was a little loose...
...and this was the result.
The Tallgeese can do a surprisingly good Gendo pose. Fiddling around like this is how I wind up coming up with personalities for my secondary models; my Wilber Nine wound up with a cat AI installed because of a similar event.
The legs are rather long. A little too long for a Shinki.
The inner frame on the legs is pretty impressive with how it keeps the knee parts in position, though it tends to stick a little when being straightened out.
The completed model.
And here it is fully armed. Unfortunately, not too many opportunities for panel lining, and at least half of them are on the accessories.
The boosters are one of the parts I'm planning on appropriating for a future project. They have a neat gimmick where the entire unit opens and closes when the back end is extended, but mine tend to stick closed.
...I still need to ask 'Rythæ how she got them to pop open like that. Gave Æeta a good startle.
'Rythæ likes the gun. Given how she can handle her Tempest, I'm pretty sure she could shoot pretty well with this thing, too.
Æeta, meanwhile, prefers her own shield to the round one of the Tallgeese.
This was my first attempt, both at taking pictures during a work in progress, and having my Shinki "help" with the build. Comments?
