Qubeley Mk II Ple Two Custom 1 by Bang-Doll-SSI Qubeley Mk II Ple Two Custom 1 by Bang-Doll-SSI
1/100 AMX-004-3 Qubeley Mk II Ple Two Custom

This is the MG Qubeley Mk II used by Ple Two, the clone of Newtype prodigy Elpeo Ple.

For my build, I greatly expanded the design work of the markings. The original kit only contains markings (in yellow) for the front facings of the shoulder binders-- Psycommu System marking and Qubeley script with Ple Two mascot on the left and Neo Zeon insignia on the right. EVERYTING else was all designed and laid out by me (repeated markings on back of shoulders, split Neo Zeon insignias on top of binders, text on legs and arms, danger warnings, funnel binder text and isignia, etc.). I also changed the color to gold to match the metallic finish I was creating. I sent this design off to Samuel to produce the decals for me.

Regarding the metallic finish, I wanted to add some visual interest and not just do the same old color over chrome metallics. I lightly sanded the gloss black primer before spraying on the chrome Alclad and it gave me the brushed metal look seen here. A way of weathering the finish without getting dirty. The red was Alclad Transparent Red (I've said it before-- DO NOT USE HOT METAL RED!!! It has nowhere near the amount of pigmentation for primary color use). Gold is also Alclad. Grays and blacks are Gunze and Gaia respectively.

There are also some physical mods with the addition of HiQParts thrusters inside the binders and on the outside of the legs. Metal collar parts were used for the hoses.

More to come...

Thanks! I really wanted to do some shots of them together, but it took a lot of really scary handling to get Ple's in the cabinet (so tall and wide to try to fit through the opening), that it's not coming out again until we move. So it will be a few months before I get the chance to get both of them in one shot (the cabinet doesn't have good lighting or I'd take a pic there).

Yep, in fact, I'm not even gonna talk about it anywhere else but here because I don't want to give people any ideas. lol Just in case, I checked that me posting the picture of the box last year was okay and they said yes, just no WIP shots, so I'm safe. Will you be entering this year?

It'll probably be green, but I'm still thinking about how I'll finish it (green metallic, green over smooth, green over brushed look, or just plain green lol).

I was trying to give it a darker, more bad-guy tone instead of the stock colors. Better suits Ple Two's personality. ;)

Looks like hard work :)
You must be the king of custom colour schemes and decal placement =P.
Do you ever show this Samuel person what you do with his decals? :)

Thanks! There were a couple spots where I didn't get the Future sealing coat on as thick as I'd like and it almost became a disaster... But luckily it worked out fairly well.

Yep, I always send pics to Samuel on his Facebook account that he uses for his business so that other customers can see the decals he produces.
