gwz custom1

After looking at the results in the photos, i see a lot of areas that need some touch ups and im sure i will go back to add more damage on the wings. Woke up pretty late in the afternoon today so there wasnt as much daylight as i wanted for the test shoot. Next time ill add a desk lamp and that should help greatly.

Sypnosis

Gundam 0083 1

Universal Century 0083: Zeon Intelligence has identified a prototype Gundam designed for nuclear attack under development by Anaheim Electronics. A former Zeon ace and a small band of Principality soldiers are dispatched to Earth to capture the Gundam as part of Operation Stardust. When the Zeon successfully make off with the prototype the Earth Federation assigns the mobile suit carrier Albion to locate and recover the missing unit. When the stolen Gundam fires at the space fortress Solomon (now occupied by the Federation Forces under the name of Konpei Island) the Federation Space Force suffers a catastrophic loss; as the Federation regroups, they learn that the Zeon have captured a space colony ostensibly with the objective of colliding it with the moon. When the colony’s course is unexpectedly changed toward Earth, the true objective of Operation Stardust is revealed.

The series ends with the creation of the Titans, an elite Zeon-hunting division of the Federal Forces, the main antagonists in Zeta Gundam

Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, known in Japan as New Mobile Report Gundam Wing (新機動戦記ガンダムW, Shin Kidō Senki Gandamu Uingu?), was an anime series in the mecha genre, and is one of the alternate universe Gundam series, taking place in the After Colony timeline. It is the second alternate universe in the Gundam media franchise, following Mobile Fighter G Gundam. The plot centers around a war between Earth and its colonies in space; however, in contrast to the Universal Century continuity, the Gundams in Wing are more closely allied to each other than they are to any particular side in the conflict unfolding around them.

The series aired across Japan on the terrestrial TV Asahi network. The series ran for forty-nine half-hour episodes, beginning on April 7, 1995 and ending on March 29, 1996. Masashi Ikeda was the overall director of the series. Katsuyuki Sumizawa (Yoroiden Samurai Troopers) wrote the scenario for the series and was one of three official script-writers, along with Akemi Omode and Katsuhiko Chiba. Ikeda wrote one script himself and one with Omode and one with Sumizawa. Toshifumi Kawase also wrote three scripts in the latter part of the first half of the series. Kō Ōtani composed the music. The series was loosely based on the original 1979 Gundam series, Mobile Suit Gundam, created by Yoshiyuki Tomino and Hajime

Plot

gundam wing zero 1

Mankind has colonized space (with clusters of colonies at each of the five Earth-Moon Lagrange points), and, down on the Earth, the nations have united as the United Earth Sphere Alliance. The Alliance rules the colonies with an iron fist. The colonies desire a peaceful resolution to the situation, joining together in a movement headed by the pacifist Heero Yuy. In the year After Colony 175, Yuy is shot dead by an assassin (believed to be Odin Lowe), forcing the colonies to search for other paths to peace. The assassination also prompts five disaffected scientists from the Organization of Zodiac, much more commonly referred to as OZ, to turn rogue after the completion of the mobile suit prototype Tallgeese.

The story of Gundam Wing begins with the start of “Operation: Meteor,” the scientists’ plan for revenge against the OZ military organization. The operation involves five young boys who have each been chosen and trained by one of the five rogue scientists, then sent to Earth independently in extremely advanced mobile suits, one designed by each of the scientists, known as “Gundams”. Their mobile suits are called Gundams because they are constructed from a rare and astonishingly durable material known as Gundanium alloy, which can only be created in outer space. Each Gundam is sent from a different colony and the pilots are unaware of the presence of the other pilots.

The story follows the 5 Gundam pilots, Wufei Chang (Gundam Shenlong), Trowa Barton (Gundam Heavyarms), Duo Maxwell (Gundam Deathscythe), Heero Yuy (Wing Gundam), and Quatre Raberba Winner (Gundam Sandrock). Their mission is to destroy the Organization of the Zodiac, or more commonly referred to as OZ for short. The 5 pilots each start out on sepearate missions, only to join up later on while on Earth. Along the way, Heero meets (then occasionally runs into) Relena Dorlian, who is actually Relena Peacecraft of the pacifist Sanc Kingdom.

After joining up, they split up and take on various missions in teams. Heero, however runs into OZ’s “lightning count,” Zechs Marquise (Relena’s brother, Milliardo Peacecraft). Zechs introduces the the Tallgeese in battle against Heero on many occasions, one of which Heero self detonates the Wing Gundam, nearly killing himself. Later on, the Gundams returned to outer space only to find that the space colonies they were sent from have sided with OZ. Marked as rebels, they fell on hard times. Quatre witnessed his father’s murder, Duo’s Deathscythe was destroyed, and Wufei (along with Duo) were imprisoned by OZ.

At this time, a new Gundam was introduced, Wing Zero. This Gundam looked like and had the same kind of weaponry as the Wing Gundam, but one of the most noticeable additions was it’s cockpit system, the ZERO system, a system that directly interfaced with the pilot’s brain and fed the pilot tactical data on the fly. The only downside of this was that prolonged exposure caused hallucinations and in some cases, insanity. The Gundam was being piloted by Quatre who used it to destroy a natural resource satellite and a colony. The suit was later used by each of the other 5 pilots, and Zechs Marquise.

After returning to Earth, Heero and Quatre take refuge in the newly reopened Sanc Kingdom, being governed by none other than Relena Peacecraft. The kingdom however is being pressured by the Romafeller Foundation, the group that controls most other countries as well as controls OZ. OZ’s former leader, Treize Kushrenada had been confined to Romafeller headquarters. In his confinement, he built his own Gundam, the Epyon. Treize gave Epyon to Heero to fight with. Much like the Wing Zero, this suit was also equipped with the ZERO system. After being affected by the system, Heero fought once more against a returning Zechs, who was piloting Wing Zero. After the battle, they exchanged suits. During that battle, Relena formally dissolved the Sanc Kingdom due to the tremendous pressure from Romafeller. She then became the chief representative for Romafeller (at first in image and gradually in real life) under the title Queen of the World.

Eventually, Treize was released from confinement and relieved Relena of her crown. Treize then took control of Romafeller and at the same time, Zechs returned to space and became the leader of the White Fang, under his true name of Milliardo Peacecraft. The White Fang had seized control of a battle station OZ was building for Romafeller to show its millitaristic power, called Libra. Zechs fired the main cannon at the earth, causing great damage to the earth. This prompted Treize to start gathering all of the millitary power he could muster from earth’s forces, while the Gundams remained neutral.

The White Fang continued to take it to the earth forces by taking out the only remaining OZ base in space, Space Fortress Barge. Eventually, the Gundams fought against the White Fang. Earth’s forces were ready to strike. During the epic final battle, Heero (still piloting Wing Zero) fought against Zechs (piloting Epyon). Their battle was broadcast to all of Earth and space. When the citizens saw the battle, they put their differences, whether from the colonies or from earth, and formed what became the Earth Sphere United Nation. All that was left to do was destroy Libra. However that task was much harder than the Gundam pilots originally thought. In the end, it took a blast from Wing Zero’s dual buster rifle to finish the job.

A movie sequel is planned for the year 2010

Mobile Suit Gundam 00 is the first Gundam series to be animated in widescreen and in high-definition,as well as the first to be set in the non-fictional Anno Domini era. The series is set in a futuristic Earth and centered around Celestial Being, a private paramilitary force and their efforts to rid the world of war and conflict with a series of unique and highly effective mobile suits known as “Gundams”.

Licensing for a North American release of Mobile Suit Gundam 00 was announced by Bandai Entertainment at New York Comic Con 2008 on April 18, 2008. Mobile Suit Gundam 00 is the first Gundam series to air on national television in the United States since Mobile Suit Gundam SEED and began airing on November 24, 2008 on SCI FI (now known as SyFy). The first season concluded its first run on SCI FI on February 9, 2009. The second season is set to air on the same network and time slot starting June 29, 2009

First season

Gundam Exia
The main tagline for the first season is Rebirth Begins Through Destruction.

The series is set in 2307 AD. As a result of the depletion of fossil fuels, humanity had to search for a new source of power. The power was found in the form of massive arrays of solar power collectors orbiting the Earth, and supported by three orbital elevators, each one serving one of the three “power blocs” on the planet, namely Union, controlling the region surrounding North America, Human Reform League (Japanese: 人類革新連盟; Romaji: jinrui kakushin renmei; Pinyin: rénlèi géxīn liánméng), consisting of China, Russia and India, and AEU, which controls mainland Europe

With this nearly inexhaustible source of energy benefiting only the major powers and their allies, constant warfare erupts around the globe among minor countries for fuels and energy. Countries that once economically relied on the sale of fossil fuels have plunged into poverty. Some even believe that solar energy threatened the “promised land of God”, resulting in the 20-year Solar Wars. This chaos led to the formation of a private military organization, called Celestial Being (ソレスタルビーイング, Soresutaru Bīingu?), dedicated to eradicating war and uniting humanity through the use of four humanoid machines called Gundams.[1][3] Mobile Suit Gundam 00 follows four mobile suit pilots termed Gundam Meisters ( ガンダムマイスター, Gandamu Maisutā?), sided with Celestial Being. The main protagonist is 16-year old Setsuna F Seiei (刹那・F・セイエイ?), a quiet, taciturn young man who grew up in the war-torn Krugis Republic. He pilots the GN-001 Gundam Exia, a high mobility mobile suit effective in melee combat.[10][11]

Unable to counter Celestial Being’s superior technology, the three major powers eventually unite into the United Nations Army (国連軍?) in order to counter Celestial Being’s armed interventions.[12] In order to fight the Gundams, the United Nations Army employed the help of Laguna Harvey. Harvey, a Celestial Being intelligence agent turned traitor, provides them with 30 GN-X, mobile suits equipped with pseudo-GN Drives. As the United Nations resist Celestial Being’s interventions, a second team of Gundams, known as Team Trinity, appears and assists in the Meisters’ eradication of war, albeit in a much more cruel and cold-blooded fashion, in contrast with the original Meisters’ less-aggressive nature of armed intervention.

Alejandro Corner, a former Celestial Being observer who plans to make use of the chaos and destruction created by Celestial Being to rule a reconstructed world, subsequently takes over Veda, Celestial Being’s supercomputer which is located on the moon. Without the tactical aid from the organization’s artificial intelligence, Celestial Being is easily overwhelmed and overpowered by GN-X units and their superior numbers.

The United Nations Army initiates Operation Fallen Angels to destroy the Gundams, having discovered the location of the Meisters’ mothership, Ptolemaios. During the operation, Ali Al-Saachez kills Lockon Stratos after a climactic battle. Alejandro Corner, in his unique custom mobile armor Alvatore, attacks Gundam Exia as the GN-X units proceed to destroy the Ptolemaios and the remaining Gundams. Exia struggles with the monstrous Alvatore, but in the end succeeds in killing Alejandro. Graham Aker, an ace pilot of the United Nations Army, then challenges Setsuna to a fight, seeking revenge for his fallen comrades and questioning the purpose of Gundams’ existence. The fight results in the destruction of the GN-Flag, while the Exia is heavily damaged.

Second season
gundam exia season 2
Four years have passed since the final battle between Celestial Being and the UN Forces. Humanity, having established the Earth Sphere Federation, forms an autonomous peace-keeping force, A-Laws, separate from and above the formal Federation army. Given unfettered discretion, A-Laws is charged with the duty to further unify nations, enforce the will of mankind, and dispose of terrorist cells. Unknown to the general public, however, is that the A-Laws misuse their power and employ inhumane tactics to oppress freedoms, doctrines, and ideologies, all in the name of ‘unity’.

Saji Crossroad has followed the path to becoming a space engineer, to keep his promise to Louise Halevy. But he ends up being mistaken for a member of the dissident organization Kataron and is unjustly imprisoned. Louise herself is compelled to become involved in Federation government reform and joined A-Laws as a mobile suit pilot during the four-year gap, using her family inheritance to fund A-Laws research.

Meanwhile, Setsuna, having survived the battle with Graham Aker four years ago and is in hiding, has witnessed a change in the world due to the actions of Celestial Being. Setsuna tries to confront the A-Laws by himself with his battered Gundam Exia, but is easily overpowered by their newer models. He is soon rescued by Tieria Erde, piloting his new mobile suit, the Seravee Gundam.

By combining the GN Drives of Exia and 0 Gundam, Celestial Being’s engineers manage to complete Aeolia’s plans for an advanced mobile suit with twin GN drives – the 00 Gundam – which is entrusted to Setsuna. To pilot the two remaining new units, Lockon Stratos’ twin brother is invited to assume his brother’s codename and former position as the pilot of the Cherudim Gundam, and after Allelujah Haptism is rescued from the prison he was being detained in during the timeskip, he assumes the command of Arios Gundam.

Oblivious to Celestial Being and the A-Laws, a third party is manipulating both sides of the conflict. This group call themselves “Innovators”, composed of Alejandro Corner’s former assistant Ribbons Almark, and his six subordinates. Subsequently, it is revealed that Aeolia Schenberg’s plan is to ensure humanity’s survival; unite the world’s factions through Celestial Being’s armed interventions and then advance humanity into deep space and undergo Innovation, a trans-human process

After War Gundam X(1996)

Gundam X

After War Gundam X (機動新世紀ガンダムX, Kidō Shinseiki Gandamu Ekkusu?, lit. Mobile New Century Gundam X) is an anime television series from Japan. It is a part of the Gundam franchise that started in 1979, but takes place in an alternate universe called After War Era. The series has 39 episodes, aired in Japan from April 5, 1996 to December 28, 1996 across TV Asahi’s ANN stations and the anime satellite television network Animax. It was directed by Sunrise veteran Shinji Takamatsu (SD Gundam, Golden Brave Goldran, School Rumble), and the screenplay was written by Hiroyuki Kawasaki.
Plot

Following the success of Gundam Wing, After War Gundam X premiered on TV Asahi on April 5, 1996. This series was the third of Bandai’s alternate universes and the last Gundam series to air for three years. This series presented a scenario similar to the Universal Century’s One-Year War and showed what would have happened had the colonists dropped dozens of colonies instead of one and destroyed the Earth’s surface, destroying most of the Earth’s population and leaving the survivors in a ruined post-apocalyptic world.

The premise is the setting of Gundam X, which uses the After War (AW) calendar. The basis point of the After War timeline is the end of an apocalyptic war that resulted in the drop of virtually all space colonies onto Earth, devastating the planet and destroying 99% of humanity. The series begins in AW 0015, as the Earth is just beginning to recover. The star of this series is fifteen year-old Garrod Ran, a member of Vulture, a scavenger group that patrols the wasteland for profits, which is on a mission to find and save mistreated Newtypes in the world from those who wish to take advantage of them. The first episode’s main storyline started off with Garrod doing a ‘hold-up’ to a reckless bandit who possessed a Mobile Suit. He was discovered by an old man (who may have had an influence) and assigned him to rescue a girl named Tiffa Adill from Vulture. As he rescues Tiffa, he discovers that she is a target of an unknown party and finds out that she is a Newtype. Then as the story goes on, they find the “15 year-old nightmare”, the Gundam X. Gundam X also used the space war concept featured in previous Gundam series as a backdrop, with the New United Nations Earth and the Space Revolutionary Army as the opposing factions.
