ZGMF-X56S/β Sword Impulse Gundam Photodump

Because I didn’t have anything to do (boooo, job market), I took some pictures of Sword Impulse since it was so heavily neglected when I put the page up. It’s still kinda tough to work with since the blades are huge, but I did have a lot of fun playing around with it.

I wish I would have taken more pictures with the double Excalibur, but honestly it’s pretty tough to pose like that since the weapon is so oversized. The wrists aren’t the best in to world and sometimes you have to get a little creative with how you’re going to have the model hold the sword a certain way. Still, I’ve recently discovered I’m really fond of this guy.

    I agree good sir, you’ve got some seriously killer skills. Can’t wait to see that Astraea and 0 Gundam!

    @Buster: painted the red parts metallic red, the black parts metallic black and then some gold and silver for some little parts. Nothing fancy, but I like red anyhow so I didn’t feel the need to tinker with the colors on this one.

    @GaiGun: For sure! I think you could work some real magic with this bad boy..and I’m always keeping an eye on your blog 😉 I’ll be watching it like a hawk after that comment though. Like you I was very surprised to see that the fellow over at tomopop felt the way he did, enough that I dropped him a line thanking him. Ofc, I didn’t feel the need to point out we’re scattered all over the world instead of being in Australia.

    Posing the swords can be a huge problem for this kit. Other than that haha really love the metallic red 😀

    Seems like you and I have a liking for mechs with huge ass swords haha!
