In fact, I like this FA design very much. It came from be a pic in the mook- Model Graphix Special around 20 yrs ago.
FA Gundam ver. Katoki (it is my dream MS), the
coolest FA ever!
My new project going to commission to prof. modeler, below is my preliminary background research: (BTW, if u know all the below pics & books, u are sure a die-hard gundam fans)
Using S-Gundam back packs, the 2 wings & shoulder cannon
ELEMENT 1: COREWORK FA-78-3
-so the big gun can be modified as shoulder cannon
New G one is base on this concept, but the detail is over IMO; & 1:72 is not my cup of tea (so just for reference only)
Element 2: back packs from Ex S & the radar on right shoulder
haha, size comfirmed OK for 1:100 stuff :)
Element 3: Color scheme & Decal style reference
my preferred reference (old G-kit by Japanese modeler: 3-bad-guy)
