" The Gilgamesh Project " - DC23

click to enlarge to 1600 x 1000

The concept behind the Gilgamesh project is simple... " The Gilgamesh Project " is a secret mecha project in the remote regions of Northern Siberia. A small Zeon faction created this monster out of old Zeonic technologies. The mecha has been wrecking havoc on Federation forces for 5 years now, however the enemies has this mech as unclassified. No one has lived to tell the tale of the attacks of this monster, The Gilgamesh is often referred to as the " White Shark " or the " White Sunset ".

The diorama is made of of different plastic scraps from M&M canisters to small 1 inch PVC pipes. The figures used are basically out of scale coz they are 1/72 military figs. Obviously the main kit is the MG Sazabi and parts from 1/144 GNX and MG Qubeley was used to enhance the overall look.

I painted this with Tamiya acrylics and weathered it with Mungyo dry pastels, Tamiya enamels, Citadel paints and Tamiya weathering master. The diorama was painted with Bosny ( industrial grade ) spray cans and was weathered in the same manner as the mech. It took me roughly 3 months to finish this build. 

Now I present to you my latest diorama... the Gilgamesh project...

I just took some night shot effects for this build so that the weak LED set up could be seen. I really need to learn how to optimize the effect of those little lights. The photos above are ok but I really like giving the kits some high contrast night effect photo shoot with one source lighting. The night shots gives the kit a more menacing look and usually looks a bit more realistic. Anyways here are the night effect photos, hope you'll like them...

the lousy LED set up... 3 LEDS per 1 9v battery... Their are 2 9v batteries and 6 LEDs

















Thanks for dropping by! Til next dio! :D
