Ecopla: HGUC Gouf

Sorry to keep you guys waiting, but here’s the final product.  Questions, comments, etc. are welcome.  Overall, the black makes it look much more bad ass than the regular blue.  Hmm… something to consider doing with an MG kit…?

Also, I particularly like this shot.egouf29

Without further ado, here’s the gallery.

WiP: Ecopla HGUC Gouf

Rather than keep you waiting, lets go ahead and jump into the WiP, it’s short and simple.

Compared to the HGUC Hi-ν and Geara Doga, the Gouf build is much simpler, especially with the waist and torso molded as two parts to be snapped together, as this is a much older kit.  This leads to some limitations with the leg movement and posing (no splits for him!) but that can’t be helped.  Again, the draw of Ecopla is the pure black, as it looks pretty cool overall.  While you can sort of see the gate mark damage left from snipping off the runners, overall, it doesn’t really stand out.  In fact, this is a pure cut and fit, with no sanding/design knife trimming at all.  Anyways, next post will be the completed shots.
