Leo-san 4 port USB hub by alphaleo14 Leo-san 4 port USB hub by alphaleo14
What started as a fun build end up another complicated build which took me 3 months to complete. And the result was satisfying beyond my expectation, now I have my own personal Mobile suit. You guess it Alphaleo MS which I decided to name it Leo San (MR Lion). The base Gunpla was from HGBF Bearguy III which I myself couldn't resists it's cuteness, and it serve as a perfect choice to try out Alphaleo in mecha form, which something I have been thinking to do for quite some time. Various parts and junks are being used for the build, and the end result was perfect as each parts fit together perfectly. for those of you whom are intrested in the WIP, here is the link www.pla-zone.com/thread/1046/h…

Aside from the build, this was also my first attempt to combine electronic parts into the build, I combine a 4 port USB hub into the back pack as well as a flash drive as one of the funnel, I originally intended to build 4 flash drives funnels but due to budget constrain, I ended up building the rest of the 3 Funnels as mock up, but the USB hud are the main focus. I also rewired the USB port LED to the backpack so whenever I plug in to the computer, the LED in the backpack will light up.

Overall a fun tough build but it was fun, everyone whom seen this have a good laugh on the USB port tail.

Lastly Gundam Build figther was awesome, my second fav choice behind Gundam Unicorn, the series was fun and welly done, and it was sad that the series ended last Monday, I would really hope Bandai would do a second series. And here is the episode that features on the HGBF Bearguy III which is also one of my fav episode www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJInAB…

This is amazing I would actually like to know how you made the hair bits. I, too am a gunpla hobbyist and am practicing custom building, so if it's possible I would like to know how you did it.

WOW that was an unexpected surprise on my end. Well it seems that you're well equipped with the tools for the trade. I'm trying to get by with what I have. I would love to learn some of your methods in customizing some time in the future :)

well, i do have the sufficient tools to get around, i don;t have all the tools, and sometimes that is frustrating but it was also that time that pushes me to be more creative in solving a certain road block. The hair problem that i am stuck for almost a month, and i work on other parts of the build instead and without thinking or worrying about that, the solution just pops to me when i am not thinking of it and as u saw the result was rewarding. and a lot of people ask me about the hair, i just say, it's just a catchapon ball that someone gave me. 

This build is actually just a test build for a bigger build that i am planning in the future, currently I am still working on my on going gundam unicorn build pla-zone.proboards.com/thread/… that i have been working on for 5 years already but still a long way to go. hopefully i can submit for 2017 GBWC.

Well I guess the frustration is what gets to most gunpla builders but it's nice to see that some gunpla builders get a different sorts of motivation from it...hahahaha. Either way it still is most rewarding to be able to speak to someone with more experience outside my community and for that you have my utmost gratitude. :)

Your skill and artwork never ceases to blow my mind. Every time I come back, one of the first artists I try and take a look for new stuff from is you.

Not big into Gundam myself but I love your work and something like that would be awesome on my desk. Of course I know a friend who is a BIG gundam fan that'd probably chop off an arm to get something like that for his collection.
