Looks freaking awesome! Looks like a modern version of the Leo. One we definitely needed!

EDIT: Oh! If you have the time and patience I would love to see this in different Faction colors. Like OZ Colors, Trieze Faction Colors, Romefellar Colors, etc.

Great thing about the Leo is that its color scheme is basically monochromatic, so it's pretty easy to fiddle around with the color scheme. I had one or two bits of detailing to wrap up, and after that I did three images, based on the three different canon color schemes I found lineart for on Gundam Wiki/MAHQ:

1. Standard/Ground Type

2. Space Type

3. East Asian Forces Type

And I also did one more that required just a tidbit more modification, though it was worth it:
4. Prototype

Nice! Wasn't there another color scheme for the Treize Faction? I seem to remember them using a different colored Leos during the one episode which had Heero piloting for them in Europe. Or was that the East Asian Scheme?

That Prototype color would be perfect for the Leos used by the Sanc Kingdom since it is similar to Taurus used by them.

EDIT: Opps. Look like it was Romefellar Loyal forces who where using Leos with the East Asian Colors, though it looks more purple then royal blue, while Heero along with the Trieze Faction were using Leos in regular colors. This battle is the first part of Episode 30.

Also I would love to this version in the colors of the Command Aries and the Black Aries.

I actually based the Prototype Leo color scheme on the Tallgeese :P But yeah, it is rather Sanc Kingdom-esque.

Boredom/insomnia resulted in this

Basically a minor edit of this with the original/complete Varguil backpack, and the whole thing given a uniform color scheme (matching the head's blue because that was easier).

Yeah, so I was bored today and decided I'd take the ARX-014S Silver Bullet Suppressor from *Narrative* and remove the extra equipment on its backpack that stores additional arms, see what it looked like.
I also ended up modifying the knees to revert them back to the vanilla Silver Bullet's knees because I think the SBS's look weird. And I changed the color scheme a little.

This is the result.

Pretty straightforward - recolored the WoDom Pod from Build Divers Re:RiSE into the original WoDom's red.
Kinda like it better.

Your right that does look better... It also looks far better than the original WoDom as well...

That's true as well.

So on another note, partially inspired by Thunderbolt and by a conversation I had with someone on Skype, I also put this together:

The left is a RGM-79 GM that I got by basically modifying the RMS-179 GM II lineart from the UC OVAs.
The right is a GM with a modified "Gundam head"

Whistles. Now that is freaking awesome! Though. I would think the Gundam-Head GM would have a second beam saber installed.

I actually thought about it, but I think I decided against it on the basis that I figured it as a mostly cosmetic modification made for psychological warfare purposes - I didn't see a reason for its actual armament to differ.

Shrug. That's your call, but I would see the Gundam-head being an ace/commander level machine for regular Federation Forces. Though we do have plenty of superior GM variants which can serve that purpose now that I think about it.

True. I'll have a think about it.
I did do one thing though just to increase the parallel even more - Changed the Gundam Head's color scheme

Though that does bring up a good point, and something that's been bugging me for ages. How come the GM's only got one beam saber, anyway?

Very Nice. That really does up the psychological warfare potential on the machine. It reminds me of the scene from the Battle of Panama in SEED where the poor ZAFT Grunts start panicking when they first see the Strike Daggers thinking its the Strike itself. So I can see a similar effect happening here.

Yeah, I remember that. I also remember from reading Origin that there was some confusion/panic from the attacking Zeon forces when the GMs were deployed, some of them initially thought they'd mass-produced the Gundam.

Especially the GM Customs that Sayla and Sleggar piloted if I remember right.

At A Baoa Qu, yeah. I actually remember there was one bloke in particular piloting, IIRC, a Braw Bro who went up against Sayla's GM Custom and honestly thought he was up against the Gundam, right up until she killed him. Was kinda hilarious.

It was actually Simus Al Bakharov the co-pilot of the original Braw Bro in the series. And yes it was kind of hilarious wasn't it.

Yeah. So still on the subject of GMs, I also did this side-by-side comparison of all three generations of GMs:
FRONT
REAR

I did slightly tweak the first-gen GM's shoulders for better accuracy, and I also, rather than use the official lineart for the GM III(which has slightly different and IMO a little bit wonky angles/proportions) did the same thing as I had for the GM in that I modified the GM II's.
