Hiigaran Interceptor

Well I guess its up to me to get this party started.

Here is the inspiration:


And the main parts:

This picture was taken all the way back in 2016, I think I intended to enter it into the last sci-fi GB or scalorama GB. Anyway I'm now starting and luckily all the parts have been kept together(although I have since lost the pilot figure).

These are miscellaneous parts from gundam models and the gun is something I built for a project that didn't pan out.

Now to scrounge my bits box for further details.

And while I did think that it also looks like a Hiigaran Battlecruiser, I dont have the parts to make it look good so I settled on inteceptor.

Quite promising! The paint should be very interesting.

Good looking brute - like the way the gun blends in, it's huge, but not obtrusive.

Mostly done, underside finished. Just need to clean it up a bit, scribe some panel lines on top and paint it.
