Project "Liberty" (not for the faint of heart)

Recommended Posts

Gabihime

What an amazing mod!  I’m actually thinking about getting and customizing some small mechamusume girls, especially since I’m going to be designing transforming armaments for my light novel series.  I’m also going to be building a prosthetic leg for one of my girls, as she has a prosthetic, amputated above the knee.

Freedom is one of my absolute favorite gundam.  I love any SRW game with the Seed machines (who am I kidding.  I basically just love any SRW game).  Probably Wing Custom is my second favorite.  I really like robots. Otoko no roman, after all.

 

 I haven’t built a kit in a long time, but I’m looking forward to doing it again.  I love seeing your process. Thanks for taking all the pictures!

Thank you very many, though there's been little progress since august ... because reasons.

But, frame arms girls are probably a nice go to option to make custom 1/12 scale mecha musumes, I still havent touched the 20+ boxes I have unopened that I had more or less combination plans for. (a head from here, body from there, wings from here... etc...)

Wing custom is a bit peculiar that.. im a bit on the fence do I like ir not, the machnical winged version does work, but the angel winged one especially in mech form was a bit ehh for me.

First post updated with the making of hardpoints ... drillbits were used without discretion.. be warned.

(Look ma! I made a figma!)

First post updated with making of attachments for the shoulder pads/winglets ... peculiar engineering solutions were made.

(Pad it like its 1985...)

Just popping by in the interest of tying off loose ends here, no details because of reasons, but some wip photo's on my flickr if anyone's interested, but the wing assembly is complete after finalizing all body mounting stuff:

I love this project!

 

I have to create an infrastructure to fix some mecha wings on the back too, any suggestion?

I did show the main mount in the first post in this thread, the only tweak to the final design was making the end hexagonal so the adapter with the original kit polycap that mounts the wingpack doesent spin around -- but this means drilling through the top part of the torso.

some less invasive approaches could be rubber bands around the armpits (I think most angel wing setups do this), but that would not work in my case because the Freedom wings are too heavy. or make a custom bracket that goes into the arm sockets of the upper torso, sort of like how I did the shoulder pad mounts (also in the first post)

Thanks, I'll figure out something sooner or later.

What an amazing project! I've never even thought about this combination but just the photo of the wings has me blown away. I'm supposed to be "working from home" right now but have read through the whole first post three times already... 

Looking forward to more photos!

This is awesome! It's a shame the wing mount is 3D printed, I've been looking to do something similar with an Obitsu body and some resin wings I have. This is making me consider hacking together some frame pieces to try and make it work, though! 👀

Great work, keep us posted on how it goes!

also, magnets... forgot about those... because reasons.

 

Waist down completion pics (sans weapon detailing), again no fancy words, and a few wip shots on the flickr for those interested, although the bulk of the work was already done:

Incredible work! What a great doll and project concept.

If you lightly burn the edge of frayed ribbon with a lighter or match, it'll prevent it from fraying such as in the photo above. Creates clean, solid ribbon ends.

She's going very well!

 

Yes, I love magnets for this kind of things, my only fear is that the wings I want to use are too heavy and cause magnets to rotate, I'll do some experiments when I'll have time.

A hot knife would probably be most ideal (which I do have in a gas-soldering iron form) to have the most control ... the ribbon in the pictures is a leftover modesty feature for WIP photos without the chestpiece. and should be gone once I've done the top... which hoepfully doesent end up as much of a faff as the gym pants did.

mm, weight is a thing hence why I dont regret hardmounting these onto the frame as they were more heavy than I expected ... one thing worth to try is perhaps using a bigger magnet where you can hide it, and smaller one where you cant, for instance here I am using a 20x2mm disc magnet inside the bust, and a 8x3 disc inside the chest piece.
