I would love to brick them, especially since I find ways to improve on the designs once they are physical. Sadly I don't have all the pieces I would need just yet, but I would like to add them to my collection one day!

So before I complete a Sandrock to round out the Gundam Wing suits, I decided to redo the Wing Gundam inspiration. Chubdam Fenix looks clunky now compared to my newer stuff, and I wanted a more true form. So I went back to the drawing board, drawing on both lessons learned from the original Fenix and newer frames. Simpler is always better! Usually!

Chubdam Roc!

System Key:
Fram Buster Rifle: d8Rr d8Rr d8Rr
Tower Shield: d6B
High Maneuverability Wings: d6B / d8G
V-Comm Antenna: d6Y
Chest Sensor: d6Y
Vulcan Guns/Talons: Melee d6W

The chest piece turned out to be a bit of an issue, stops the arms from moving much, so the talons which I originally had mounted on the arms and folded back like in the show had to be moved to the wings in flight mode. I liked them there so much I kept them when I transformed the Roc back to add the clavicle mounted vulcan guns I had forgotten. The proper shield is a big upgrade from the Fenix's standard Chub shield, and looks fantastic in flight mode. With the over all shape of the 'head' formed by the Frame Buster rifle and tower shield, along with the tiny arms, I feel it gives it a flying T-Rex look, especially from the side. Not sure if I did a good job capturing that in the photos though! Another improvement over the Chubdam Fenix is the stand connection and the way the shield combines with the rifle; no longer requires removing bricks! All legos are now used in both modes.

As always, CCC welcomed. Stay Tuned for a Gundam Sandrock inspired frame. (Coming SoonTM)

Chubdam Oliphant, inspired by various versions of Gundam Sandrock, finally joins its Gundam Wing styled brethren. I have to say I put this lil frame off for so long, and debated everything from color scheme to v fin style for so long, its a minor miracle it happened. That said, I'm surprisingly happy with the outcome. It looked plain at first, but its very much the sum of its parts. Each bit felt plain until it really came together. And the Heatclaw is SO MUCH FUN to play with! Really not much I want to work on or improve with it in the future which is rare for me as I often get displeased with various aspects of my projects shortly after I 'complete' them. Maybe a side effect of being tired with working on this frame off and on for a while, and to a greater extent the GW models. That said, there are several other suits I'd like to draw inspiration from in the future from GW, including Epyon, Leos, and Tallgeese. Ah, one day!

Additionally I'd like to update a few frames such as Brimstone and Styx. Brimstone in particulary has been a labor of love, and the chainbelt ammo can has benefited from advice from fellow mofos on flckr and the group FB page, so big thanks to everyone who helped!

The chain belt turned out really good. A bit out of scale if you ask me, but still looks the part.

I love the chain belt. the scale reminds me of WH40k. I would love to recreate it, but its very parts intensive...

Ideally I want use the short bar and binocular design I've seen else where on the forums GatlingGouf mayhaps?) but I lack the parts for now. It would be a better scale to the chainbelt though, and looks super slick.

So I revamped Chubdam Styx a bit ago (3.0), but forgot to post updates for it. Still not quite satisfied with the shield, but it works for now. I do like the repositioned cape though, think it works much better where it is. And the scythe looks way better than the old style flame!

I've always been jealous of Gatlinggouf927's Gatling Gun design, and I finally had the pieces to built it. Stroke of lucky, was able to slightly modify the design by using a tap to connect the barrels which let the hose connect directly to the bottom. Calling it folks, Brimstone Done!

Thanks! The original design is from Gatling Gouf, who sadly doesn't frequent the forums anymore (hope he lurks still!). He did some amazing Zeonic designs back in the day, and among them was his namesake. Here's a link to the break down.

I made a small addition of a tap in one end so that the barrels would be more centered around their connection. Its a tight fit, but barely noticeable with the added advantage of giving a spot for the hose that acts as the spine of the chain belt to hook up to.

As for my next Chubdam designs, I'm working right now on something Red, and something Blue. That said I'm always open to suggestions!

So these next two frames came together awfully quick, once I got my hands on enough parts. The first is a Gundam Epyon inspired design that I will have to revisit this one in the near future to build some proper wings for (and maybe switch out the plasma edge's color), but it looks pretty nice right now with its temporary flashy wings. Too big for a battle right now, but looks great as a display piece. I give you Chubdam Dragoon!

Last new Frame for a while as I'm about to go on a month long business trip. Chubdam Destrier!

The idea for this guy came about the second I saw the new boomerang pieces in the Suicide Squad set. Despite the main body being fairly standard in style I did get the chance to play around with a few ideas. The front skirt around in particular I thought came out well, easily both the most stable and best looking attempt at frontal skirt armor I've tried. Additionally the shield was alot of fun to fiddle with, trying to capture the look of Blue Frame's. The shoulders funny enough gave me the most trouble as I tried to capture the angled armor look, but found it deceptively difficult to do. The chest also was a bit tricky to capture the source design of, and while it works for now might be something I revisit in the future.

Of note, this frame marks my first entry into Gundam Seed influences, but likely not the last. I wasn't a big fan of Seed over all, though I do think they got a few things right. I might segue to Iron Blooded Orphans when I return from my trip instead. I've seen several attempts at mobile workers and even a Graze or two, and I'm excited to try my hand at both. Random future ideas also include Gouf, Leo, Beargguy, Taurus, Freedom, Red Frame, Hi-Nu, Gelgoog, Zaku, GM Custome/Cannon, Ground Gundam, GM Ball, and Titans Gundam MK II.

The proportions and color blocking of the Destrier are really great! I like how you made the extra effort of using blue taps.

Funny you say that, its hard for me to remember sometimes just how important color blocking is. Looking over the original Astray Frames though, its really beautiful how well it was done. And I'm glad you noticed the taps, such a small touch but I try to use blue, red, or grey where I can.

Had some extra dark red left over from the Epyon inspired Chubdam Dragoon, and I figured I hadn't done a Zeon inspired build in forever (Dominius aka Rick Dom I think?). Particular favorite feature is getting the horns in there. Notably the hand is an improvement over my previous LDD Gouf hands, using a black droid torso.

Based off the parody Char's Gm Ball, I give you the Crimson Meteorite!

Back from my business trip, and waiting for me were the two Hellboy Megablok sets I ordered from target (half off and free shipping to boot!). I knew as soon as I saw the set its what I needed to really get the look I've struggled with for years with my Charub frame. Cherry picking parts from two Hellboys later, I present to you the Charub Hi-Az!

Full disclosure, if you look hard enough you can see I was short a few dark red pieces, and had to fill in with plain red. This was a fun build though, and glad to finally be done with it. Megabloks has some really fun pieces to play with, and I wish I had more!

I love the GM Quel, so I've had a frame built, albeit systemless, for a while. Meanwhile my love of the Graze Schwalbe has grown every time I've see it. While I did a LDD mock up of a GS, I hadn't bricked it just yet. The Chubdam line is still very much my comfort zone, and while I've started getting outside of said zone, its still so easy for me to bounce back to the venerable Soren Chub.

So I figured, why not turn the Quel into a test type, and model some GS systems? For sheer sexiness I threw in an Osprey head since the resulting mish mash frame, true to its roots, looks like it belongs in space. I picture it in a gate guardian role, using its grappling claw to draw enemy frames away from the gate it defends.
