Hi all,

This is my latest project, the MG Wing ver ka. Excalibur custom.  I applied several mods to the mech, but mostly these are very subtle, such as the opening on the shoulder paudlon hatch, re-adjusted thigh armour, panel lines on the calf armor, and pla plates on skirt, thigh, and the feet.  I also applied several 2mm metal pipings to the shoulders and skirt armor, as well as 1mm pipings on the side of chest and on the shield.  Finally, and most important, the main weapon is the Anti-Ship Sword "Excalibur" from from MG Force Impulse, coloured in stock scheme.

revised:
I re-colored the Excalibur and added the sword-shield combo from 1/100 HG Exia Gundam.  I like the results a lot better.  Thx for the C&C drove me to improve on the original.

As for the color scheme, I combined Sword Impulse + Deepstriker schemes, and the decals are mostly from Bandai Wing ver ka. + as always several from samueldecals.com.

C&C welcome; enjoy!

very well done again! my two cents would only be some more panel lining and that i think the sword should match the overall paint scheme, so it "fits" more, but thats it. as i said before this is another really, really well done kit by you sir.
War is crazy, so instead of throwing grenades, throw apples. Then, when the enemy is pondering why you threw an apple, throw a grenade.

yea, the red face looks a bit weird to me...
wish there was some blue in the actual gundam so that the colors would flow better with the sword

I guess I'll be the fifth to say I don't like the red face. But I think the colored faces thing is somewhat typical in terms of Beertax's works.

Other than the red face, it looks nice. Though the mix-and-match application of markings is also a little odd. Stuff from both Wing and Crossbone on the shield?

You sure do like the wing early type don't you.

Heheh, ditto on the face color, but I'm more bothered about the gray on the feet for some reason.

Hi guys, and thx for the comments.

I did guess correctly that many of you would dislike the red faceplate.  I dunno why, but I just think it's appropriate to this piece, which is basically an 'alternate' scheme, meaning a lot of things would be off place and backwards.

As for the crossbone decal, I know it does not fit but I honestly felt I had no other choice.  I knew that some sort of emblem had to be placed on the chest and the shield, but I had none on hand and the crossbone decals seemed to fit the best.  Also, I admit I am not completely satisfied with how the sword turned out.  Maybe I will swipe the blue with red and paint the red-pink part in green to simulate the beam section.

On hindsight this is one of the most conflicting pieces I did in this hobby.  I color-stripped this piece twice (once I tried a Sazabi scheme, than a light/ dark purple scheme) b/c I wasn't sure until the last moment what I wanted.  And when I finally finished painting I was very tempted to strip it again and re-paint in either 1) Master Gundam scheme or 2) Titans scheme.  I also had color leftover from my GMG Zeta and that would have been a good fit too.  I hope to do at least one more Wing ver ka., using the Zeta Evolve grey wolf scheme (the yellow/ grey one) and perhaps another using the Titans scheme.  Maybe in the future after I am done with my current projects, which are MG Assault Impulse and HGUC Nu Gundam NG conversion.

The mod are amazing, but the face plate, or mouth looks kind of strange red.

Well I have to go against the grain here, I LOVE the red face. x3  It was one of the first things that popped out to me.  I like the color scheme overall, but like others have said I feel the sword doesn't fit.  I like your idea about swapping some of the colors around, and a green beam on this would fit best aesthetically (with red and green being opposites and all).

Still, great work, and I don't care how many Wing ver Ka you do, they all look great, heehee. <3
