MG Char's Gelgoog Ver. 2.0 Part 16

What a small eye you have

It's the upper body's turn to get their armor parts after the previous posting. ^^

Armor parts for the shoulders.
A one-piece part for each side shows how awesome the part design is. ^^

The panel lined details behind the armor.

Done for the shoulder armors - almost effortlessly so I would say ^^

Integration of the inner frame details and that from the armor. ^^

The vent's line details look much better now when the whole component is completed. ^^

Armor parts for the body.

A very simple slide-on design for the entire waist armor.
Another great point regarding the part design of this kit. ^^

Body unit completed.

The cockpit hatch can of course be opened ...

... but you'll need to turn on your camera flash to take the picture of Char in there. ^^;

With both arms that were completed in the previous posting.

Upper body done.

Only the head remains now. ^^

Armor parts for the head.

(Left) Slide-on design for the tail behind the helmet.
(Right) The splits reveal the inner frame's color, which is great to look at. ^^

Two types of blade antenna are included. I chose the TV anime type for this kit.

Done for the head.

Even with camera flash on, the mono-eye camera is pretty "elusive".
The extremely narrow visor (much smaller than Zaku II's) isn't helping at all. ^^;

Fitted onto the body.

With the neck area restricting the joint's movement, the linked movement mechanism of the eye can be realized. ^^
Bright red normal marker paint on silver base for the eye does give it a feel of fierceness that I completely adore. ^^

All done for Char's Gelgoog Ver. 2.0. ^^

A more "proper" comparison with MG Gundam RX-78-2 Ver. 1.5 after all the incomplete ones in previous postings. ^^

Looks like Char has all the right to look down on Amuro with his Gelgoog now, literally XD

Using the crane from MG Char's Zaku II Ver. 2.0 to show the standing figure of Char outside his Gelgoog.
There's one hidden inside the cockpit too ^^

Comparison with the standing skeletal frame completed in Part 13.

From the comparison images, you can see how great the design of entire frame is. The legs and shoulders are noticeably smaller without their armors, but the overall frame is just rock solid. It really looks like a (fictitious) workable inner frame for this Gundam-class Zeon MS. Its sense of heaviness doesn't just come from the armors (teeth details at the edges to simulate its thickness), the inner frame itself helps to project that as well. ^^

More images of this completed MG in the next posting.
