Hi all,

This is a project that I finished in tandem with the 3 HGUC kits I posted earlier today.  This is the MG Assauilt Impulse Gundam, which consists of the following parts:

1. MG Impulse head, upper torso, shin guards
2. MG Strike Noir hips, legs, feet, arms - VP conversion parts used in upper arms, legs
3. MG GP01 shoulders
4. MG GP01FB side skirts
5. VP Blast Impulse backpack recast purchased from CubiX
6. double machine guns from Armored Core weapon unit #... forgot :)
7. warning decals from mechaskunk, "Assault IMpulse" decals courtesy of MarkW

a brief history of the kit:
I had originally purchased a MG Force Impulse b/c I needed the sword for a Wing ver ka. project.  Than during the course of the past year, I traded away pieces of the Impulse's body and weapons b/c I never intended to paint the rest of the kit.  Than I also got leftover parts from the MG Strike Noir, so for fun I combined the parts and added some spare parts from GP01 to see how it'd look.  It looked nice enough to merit weapons, so I got the blast pack and Armored core weapons b/c I wanted to build a "heavy type" gundam operating in space.

The color scheme - as any Unicorn Gundam fan might suspect - is from Katoki's ReGZL.  I had previously used that color scheme on a HG Throne Eins, but I was never completely satisfied with that project b/c the blues I used were a bit too green.  I am glad how this latest color scheme turned out - a lot bluer and brighter than before :)

Anyway here are the pics:

You're on a finishing role today beertax. The modifications look great and subtle due to the blue paint, but the semigloss doesn't look right (personal preference)

Wow, now thats awesome, I kinda get a UC vibe from the kit, probably from the color scheme and the shoulders, kinda reminds me of the mkII only with huge @$$ weapons on its back....

Excellent color scheme, I like how you painted and made the AC weapons seem like a natural part of it.

Love it! Had no idea the blast pack looks so nice in blue.
If you're poking around and asking how to do this and that, here's my advice: Just try it. And when you inevitably fail, don't blame it on anyone. Learn from it and improve the next time around because honestly that's the fastest and surest way to get good at this craft or just about anything else for that matter.

Fail Harder.

Absolutely gorgeous!  I can't get enough of you work, especially how you take parts from several kits and put them together and it looks like they were always meant to be that way.  Love it. <3
