Gunpla Gallery from the Web (Gundam 00 Series)

Gunpla Gallery (from modellers posting on the web)

This gunpla gallery consist of some of my current favorites found on the web from the Gundam 00 Series. Is a joy to look at all these fine finished gunplas.... and it helps to provide me with insights as to how to approach my future projects.

M.S.ERA - The Photographs of The One-Year War (Part 2)

The following is the second set of UC era documentary images from events before & during the One-Year War. This set focuses on the rise of the Zions.


(6) AGITATION: Zion Zum Deikun, the state father of the Republic of Zion (later called the Duchy of Zion).

(7) DEGWIN ZABI, AND HIS ELDER BROTHER, GIHREN ZABI: They visited Zion Zum Deikun while he was under medical treatment. The fact that the two brothers were suspected of the attempted assassination of Zion Zum Deikun caused uproar among the reporters & citizens gathered in front of the hospital, and caused some injuries among the crowds.

( 8) THE FUNERAL: Zion Zum Deikun, the proposer of controlism and the state father of the Duchy of Zion passed away on October 0068. This picture shows family members and a few close relatives at the funeral ceremony. (Note the both Artesia Deikun & Casval Rem Deikun are both children in this picture...... Casval Rem Deikun is later known as Char Aznable "The Red Comet".)

( 9 & 10) THE BIRTH OF MOBILE SUIT: The revolutionary fusion of two concepts, the space pod (free-flying mobile manipulator) and the AMBAC system brought forth the gigantic anthropomophus (human-like-form) machine with a height of 10 meters. Its development process was extremely trying with problems of adjusting the auto-balancer to maintain a perfect balance to prevent the machine from tumbling over. (Note this concept is the early design for the Zaku mobile suit.)

(11) Dr. Y.T.Minovsky: The proposer of the Minovsky Theory and the founder of the Minovsky Society. While working on the reactor, he encountered a strange electormagnetic wave effect in U.C.0065 within the Minovsky-Ionesco reactor that could not be explained by conventional physics. Within the next few years, they identified the cause: a new elementary particle generated by the helium-3 reaction on the inner wall of the reactor, which was named the Minovsky particle
The main use of the Minovsky particle was in combat and communication. When the Minovsky particle is spread in large numbers in the open air or in open space, the particles disrupt low-frequency electromagnetic radiation, such as microwaves and radio waves. The Minovsky particle also interferes with the operations of electronic circuitry and destroys unprotected circuits due to the particles' high electrical charge which act like a continuous electromagnetic pulse on metal objects. Because of the way Minovsky particles react with other types of radiation, radar systems and long-range wireless communication systems become useless, infra-red signals are defracted and their accuracy decreases, and visible light is fogged. This became known as the "Minovsky Effect".
And it was with this Minovsky Physics that helped in the development of nuclear technology, beam weaponry and defensive measures for mobile suits / armor.
Next Time: PART 3 - Continuation of documentary images of the rise of Zion and the beginning of the One-Year War...
