ZGMF-X42S Destiny Gundam (100% Complete)
My new version of my second favorite Gundam unit, the Destiny Gundam.It has been finished since one week but I waited for posting it because today it's my birthday, so it's a birthday moc!! I'm 17!
About this creation

About the build :
-In real life I think this could be entirely build , but using glue (especially for the leg armor and the wings)
-The sword stored on the backpack is not the same sword that the model is holding in the picture (damned sword, there is always something wrong with you x) )
-The three green pieces on the side of the model are here to hide a gap into the deployed cannon

To learn about the Destiny gundam and the gundam serie :

The main changes on this version :
-Completely redone legs (including feets too!) and arms design (including feets too!)
-It has a sword now ;)
-New head design
-Changes on the hip armor
-and some minor changes here and here

That foot looks amazing. But for some reason, I can't open the LDD file so I can dissect it. All said, I rather much like this one. Very well made and very accurate. ^Blub^

Sweet build. One of my favorite gundams, and you built it so well. My only quirk is the mouth piece, I know its hard to get right, but space wise, the mouth takes up more than the red beard piece, so just something to look at.

This is really well done. I'm not real familiar with the Gundam mechs, but this is amazing! Lots of cool techniques.

Well, as much as I disliked Seed, I still can not deny that this is a nicely made MOC, you even did the Wings of Light, yes I know what they are called I hated the story but I still looked over technical data of Seed Mobile Suits. Of all the suits from Seed, the Destiny was one of the ones that made more sense to me, though I still have a hard time with the Sword being part beam saber and physical, always annoyed me. Anyway, back to the MOC, again, very nice work, and I was wondering why you said Thursday this would be posted, but it would appears that today is your birthday, hope it's a nice day for you, and I hope people comment on this to celebrate.

Yeah, they put more effort into the designing of the Mobile Suits than the Story, there's more Gundams in Seed then any other series, unless you count the UC timeline as one giant series... I have to admit, there are some cool ideas in Seed like Sword Strike's Anchor was a cool idea, but there are so many that rubbed me the wrong way, like the Beam Boomerangs, I don't see how a beam blade could affect aerodynamics to act as boomerang. In all honesty, Seed made for a better Gunpla line than series. The unit I liked in the CE timeline wad the Red Astray, though I wish it were blue but the red color did suit the Katana aspect quite well. I also liked the style of the Out Frame D. Also, did arik just call the V-Fin a horn, at least he admitted to not being a Gundam fan, cause if he said he was a huge fan, I would have crucified him for such an error in regards to a trademark feature.

Quoting Thomas Z. Happy Bday for you! There are a lot of improvements on this indead that I like, for example the feets and the sword. However I feel that you also made a step backwards with this head design or at least wit the mouth part of it, I prefer the previous head design over this one, it even had those red "tears" under the eyes somehow and that's an important part of this MS! Everything else is good in my opinion. I too had problems with SEED's story line especialy Destiny's. It was a complete repetition of previous UC series in a new style, but the mechanical designs were awesome, just to name my favourites from SEED:Strike Noir(I still have to build this one :D),Blitz, Strike, Saviour, Cgue, Zaku Warrior(all variants)and the Ginn. I look forward for your next build, and happy bday!
Thanks a lot! I can't see how the previous head had the red tears, I only see that it was horrible so I changed it xD. All the units you cited are also great to me! Maybe someday I will build a Ginn, who know? It's a so cool unit!

Quoting arik lego woooow... this is amazing! probably the biggest disappointment was that you didn't include the transparent energy wing parts in the LXF, which I was really curious to see. anyway, great job. amazing detail on... everything. there are some things that, as I'm not really much of a Gundam fan, I thought could use work (most notably the color scheme and weapons), but that's just how the real thing is so there's no problem there. personally I think the detail you put into the legs and feet was the best on the entire Mech. oh, by the way, one of the yellow horns is slightly crooked. just thought I'd tell you. :P
Thanks man! And sorry for the Wings transparent parts. If you want to know it's just some plates and bricks attached to the little red wings. About the V-Fin, Aka was going to crucify you (xD) but I would rather thank you to notice it, it's fixed normally.

Thanks a lot! I'm very glad you like it. That is so true that Seed Story is lacking concernig the history, although, to me the units design is awesome, that's why I like building unit from seed ;)

Quoting Reinhart S. WOW the Sword look very good! Can you upload the sword on its own i want to know how you make the folding technic. I love Swords and this one is my favorite in the gundam history
Thank you! As I said, without you there will be no sword. The sword could normally be folded using hinge plates, but the result was so weird that I decided to make two swords : one for use, and one for storage. You can study the two sword downloading the LDD file. Btw, what have you been up to recently?
