1st June 2011: Research Continues I finally managed to pick up a 1/100 kit for this (only HG though), so I now have some decent reference material I can use. I will probably be building parts of this while I do Unicorn, as some of the construction will be similar. My only concerns will be how build and animate the active cloak :/
One thing at a time...
6th June 2010: Construction Commences I'm pretty much going to go a similar route to how I made Strike Noir.
I have Foamboard left over to give me a start, and I'm constructing a new frame in which to mount the shell and wings.
I will be following a similar schedule to Noir as well, ie starting with the helmet, torso, shoulders, arms, legs wings etc, but I only have half the time to do this, PLUS I still need to fix Noir for Saturday as well!! Gah!!!!

now this is INSANE! ^_^ have you put thaught into making it strong and more moble? :).. for the syth you could maybee make a frosted plexyglass shell filled with LED's :O might be a bit flimsy but it would make for a beutifull glow with a low weight value.

Katt, you did the black Gundam at expo just passed, right? If this next one is half as good as that one, it'll be SUPER CHOCOLATELY COATED SUPER MEGA RARE EPIC AWESOME PIE...Yes...All that :P

Thanks for all the support ^__^
@keir - I might use the same methods as my noir, but use a better glue gun to begin with. I'll also be reinforcing the FEET!!!!, frame, shell and wings. I'm not ready for the resin route yet (will be doing that for my next gundam)
Yeah, I thought about the plexi for the scythe. have plans for that, but not sure how it will pan out.
@ryaoki - Deathscythe prepping for launch. Please confirm status of Heavyarms, over
@CrystalNeko - I'm hoping to do this one on Sunday, so I'm up for some Duo/Deathscythe photos ^__^
@MasterJh117 - lol, if this one is half as good as my Strike Noir, then both feet will break, and not just the one >__<
@Pheebs - Thanks!! I'm gonna need it. Wings are gonna be a pain. Hopefully I've learnt my lesson with trying to concentrate too much on design, and not enough on build quality >__< Shame, I should have done Deathscythe instead of Noir, to co-inside with your Wing Zero. *shrugs*

k4tt - 4th June 2010
LMAO. Only if I can get them done Pheebs, only if I can get them done.

nice one man ^_^ i think resin / fiberglassing it would be way too heavy :P it all needs to be quite lightweight and moble :D.
omg i seriously want a nice new glue gun... that cannon @ the cosplay help desk was a BEAST!... sure beats the hell out of my 10 year old gluegun that spews glue from every crack and seme other than the one its supposed to come from. :"(
Hobo-Hitsugaya - 5th June 2010
