2006-05: Decalto Dragon Improvements(?)

Here, I have “corrected” the odd wide stance that the front legs had (pic). I did this with much hacking and slashing. As a result, it is permanently in dragon mode, but I didn’t like deathraser/parablade in these colors anyway. Also, I replaced the blox pieces in the neck with some better matching ones from the limited translucent blox set.

2008-03: Bio Raptor Commander Improvements

Recently I discovered a set of stickers for giving Zakus shiny mono eyes. Turns out they also make good raptor eyes. To add to the effect, I drilled a hole in the head, and put a piece of fiber optic inside, so light could shine through. Another quick and dirty mod is to use the tip of a mechanical pencil for the gun barrel in the mouth.

2008-05: Um, Hammer Sapper?

I’ve wanted to try this on my Holotech Spinosapper’s saws forever, but was afraid of messing up. Then I found a backup. I think I did ok, even though it doesn’t look so hot up close. At least the effect was as cool looking as I had hoped. To add some contrast to the Hammer Rock, I borrowed part of a red clamshell cockpit.

Blade Liger BI (w/painted CP-12)

Blade Liger BI (Black Impact), a limited* from the Fuzors line. I finally got off my duff and painted my CP-12 black, because I imagined it would look really good on this Bladey. I also gave him a Shieldy chest gun, because I hated the Bladey one. (I really should take some “stock” pics, and move these to the CP section, but I’m lazy…)

HMM-002 Command Wolf (One Year Later)

One year later, and I’m finally finished. All the time I was putting off doing stickers, I was also bothered by the ham-fisted panel lining job this poor guy got. My previous gold and silver markers were a piece of crap, so I redid the teeth and hydraulics too. Either this project was cursed, or HMM kits really don’t stand up do disassembly, because I broke three pieces AND lost one. I replaced the lost one (a cap-like piece that holds the shoulder armor on) with a leftover Armored Core weapon. Just what the crap it’s supposed to be, I don’t know.

Iron Kong (Karl’s type)

TakaraTomy commemorated the 10th anniversary of the anime by releasing more anime-accurate versions of certain kits. One of them was the Iron Kong of a certain Germanic colonel who likes gatling guns. The upside: a clear green gearbox, and inclusion of the super ultra mega rare CP-A1 (a sprue of connector parts that lets you affix CPs to Zoids they were not meant for). The downside: too flippin’ expensive, and I don’t like how high the gatling mount sits (neither of which will stop me from trying to get one).

Since I’ve had a PK for a while, I thought I’d try to make my own, via the magic of plastic swapping. I also had a spare hacked CP-03 I didn’t feel guilty about hacking up, since it was already in bad shape, so I thought I’d take a stab at a slightly better gun mount (though still pretty half-assed.)
