    a little update

    a little update on shoulders. i think the previous version i did was better looking, but i lost them when the O.S. crashed...

    anyway, i think they are still too fat, and those golden pipes are killin me...
    advices are welcomed :thumb:

    see you soon

    It's a great start ogroto. Though the shoulders look a little flat, they have more of a curved sort of sloping to them.

    See if this helps?



    You're doing a great job on this, I can't wait to see more and one day build it. I think I mentioned it before but this is one of my favourites.

    hey ogroto how things the model is lookinmg super mate i agree with skip the shoulders could do with a little rounding. as for the pipes if tou use primitives to make a pipe then segment it you should be able to move each individual segment to your wishes, its not much help but there is bound to be someone onhere who could help better. its looking real good though so keep it up.

    Hey Ogroto, the model looks mighty fine! First thing I noticed looking at the pic was the pipes and thought to myself "that's nice and different"! They are a schlep to do, but done right will make this model a masterpiece! Good luck, with the rest mate!

    Hey ogroto...I'm an Inventor and Alibre user in industry...if we have ever had to make a shape similar to those pipes, we make a path for a circle to follow, and then "sweep" the circle along that path...hence a pipe. I don't know what software you are using, or if that helps...but I thought I would try...move on to another section if you are getting frustrated with the pipes wall1...come back to it later.:thumb:

    hi everyone, i have done something during this days... just a little update.
    the pipes kill me. and unfolding them with pepakura designer, they look UNBELIAVABLE complicated to paste. so i dont know what to do! but i could design one, wich got me really pleased with the result. The first one i have done, are much worse than the shoulder one.

    so keep coming on advices!
    and sorry for my bad english haha sign1

    Well I think you're doing agreat Job I really do! As for the piping, I'd leave it as is. The hardcore papermodel builder out there can then build them and stay true the the wole "paper" model thing.

    Others though who may lack skillor experience in building cimplex curved shapes like this can substitute paper for electrical wire. Bending it into shape and gluing into place.

    Don't give up and don't doubt yourself. ;) The Musha is a highly detailed Gundam and you're doing it justice so far. :)

    Looking forward to seeing more.

    I agree with Skip, those tubes are as fine as it is, sweeping along a curve would make the part un-unfoldable... (Not sure if Meta even has this function or not...) :D

    Lookin really great ogroto!! :) Like I said, the Musha's one of my fav Gundam designs.

    One concern though, and it's minor. The symbol on his chest, that would be tricky to build as a 3D object by the looks of it. May be better to have that as a flat plate??

    The waist armour is looking grat buddy. ;)

    just remember that paper has thickness with it, not like surface/ face/ mesh in 3d programs that don't has.
    Think of it when design any paper model.
