TMF/A-802 BuCUE
I don't usually do too many quadruped mecha, so bear with me on this one. This is also from Gundam Seed.

What typically classifies a mecha as a Gundam? I have seen the Television show, and have seen some titled as "Gundam" But do not come from the show, I am confused.

Quoting Jason Dominguez Have you ever considered attempting the ZGMF-X88S Gaia? I think you would pull it off very well.
Thanks very much. You're the second person to suggest the Gaia. Perhaps its a sign. I guess it isn't a big stretch to go from the BuCUE to the Gaia. It would definitely be easier to do this model in black parts! I have a lot more black than grey. And it would have the added benefit of not having any tank treads. Sounds like fun. I'll put it on the list. But it will have to come after the Gundam Heavyarms. But I am waiting for the Master Grade Model of Heavyarms to come out before attempting that one.

Quoting Farhan Salman Awesome. From my view, I see it as Metal Garurumon, in Digimon. Hehe.
hahahahaha! Thats so true! I wonder if Gundam stole the design from them. Very astute observation.

Yea that would be a nice finishing touch! The real drawn one looks bubbly but yours takes the brick and makes it look buff and medium mech style!

Quoting Finn C-Q BuCUE's are probably (besides the Provedence and Freedom and Zacu and so on...) my favorite Gundams.
I wanted to do one because no one had really made one. I almost ended up making the providence, but it ended up becoming something else (which I will eventually post)

Quoting Josiah Tsang Sorry to dissappoint you, but Destiny will have to wait. Right now I can't find myself starting a large-scale gundam project mostly due to the time and money required. However I do have a few ideas for some of the key sections of the model, so I won't be clueless when I restart it.
:( :( :( is all I have to say. The justice is so cool, I don't want to have to wait for the other. Stay cool, man!

Quoting Eric Sophie Hey cool, your MOCpages are back! This is really cool, but you know I like Animal Mecha. :) Wow, you took a lot of photos.
This is my largest photo set. It had a lot of weapons options and it could do some dynamic looking stuff, so I went for it. Thanks for all the comments, man. Coming from someone as talented as you, it is indeed an honor.

Quoting Mike Johnson Nice quad mech! My first thought was of Voltron but much better. I've never seen Gundam Seed though so I can't comment on how close it is to the original. I'm curious about one thing, it looks pretty heavy so I'm wondering how you got the legs to hold up the weight while still being poseable at the same time?
It is pretty heavy, though the entire body is pretty much hollow, to reduce weight. The shoulders and hips both use the ratchet joints from the exo-force sets, so they are pretty stable. Having the treads on the backs of the legs was a mixed blessing. It helped give the feet extra traction, so they could hold those awkward, though cool looking poses.
