For the next piece here on the bench, I'm doing another gunpla build
In this case, working with the 1/144 Impulse Guncam Lancier and Arc kits and doing a small bit of parts swapping to make something of my own



Not gonna show all the sprues individually, but, suffice it to say, there is PLENTY of plastic to work with here
(So much, in fact, that some of it won't even be used in this build)



Build went pretty much straight out of the box. Although, like with the Bael, there are some of the stickers I opted to paint in with the Gundam pens instead of using
Heads and upper bodies:


Arms.
Here we start to see where I'm doing a partial limb swap


Legs finished.
Like the Bael build, these things have HUGE feet


Built up the waist pieces as well as the hip plates, rear packs, and weapons

With the basic construction done, I went in with the Gundam panel marker and did the line work.
That done, I did some final assembly and called this little project finished

A friend of mine just got into building Gundam .
He wants to do one as a Wehrmacht weapon attacking a Sherman tank :D

In the series the Avalon Impulse's could switch parts, I'm not sure if they do this combination in a side story or not but they were able to do it.

Would you be better off making a single suit using all the equipment rather than just switching bits out? Make a complete Avalon Impulse basically?

Couldn't really tell you on that one.
These two make a grand total of three Gunpla that I've built
Sorry

Welcome to the Gunpla fold then! Gunpla is one of my primary hobby things and I'm well versed in Gundam. I usually assume people building a kit have seen it in a series and liked it not just bought it randomly.
