MG Geara Doga Full Frontal Custom


My MG Geara Doga 'Full Frontal Custom' won the 'Best Large Scale' kit at the GBWC event at NYCC 2013. Of the three kits I planned on producing for the show the Geara Doga was the second kit completed but also the kit that took the most time to finish. 


The Geara Doga Full Frontal custom is a version of the Geara Doga that made an appearance in the video game Mobile Suit Gundam UC (Postwar). In the lore this was the mobile suit that Full Frontal used before the Sinanju Stein was stolen. His Geara Doga custom was abandoned during the Sinanju Stein theft operation.

The sleeve details on the Geara Doga's wrist armor took the most time to complete. The sleeve detail was scratch built onto the Doga's existing wrist armor out of pla-plate, pre cut pla-strips and putty. The details is slightly over sized compared to the HG Version of the kit, but I wanted the detail to stand out against the kit.  I also modified the Bullpup rifle included with the kit into a design more similar to the Geara Zulu's with an additional scope and a front loading magazine. 

Painting the kit was straight forward. The only areas that required a bit of thinking were the thrusters on the feet. The 'Char Salmon' color was custom mixed for this kit, the darker red paint is from the MG Epyon, and the yellow is the same yellow used on the MG Wing with a little extra orange.
