First time using pla plates, thanks for heathorn, redmage, and superPJ for helping me to know how to use pla plates and what tools should I need.I'm modifying my old HGUC 1/144 GP01Fb, because I like this kit, and it's my 1/144 kit, old and dusty.
First Prototype, modding the Vernier and the backpackI started to modify the GP-01Fb for my fellow blog challenge (redmage), first of all, GP-01Fb core fighter seems forgotten by lots of people, so I started to modify the GP-01 using the core fighter. My inspiration is 00 raiser. So the core fighter will be attached to the backpack. The verniers are acted like the 0 raiser binders.Second prototype, this time adding some detail at shield, legs, and shouldersBack view, second prototypeAfter adding some detailing, some technical issues, here is the WIP of the GP-01HPM Ambrosius "High Powered Mobility".
