My first model completed in my 1/144 scale U.C. Hardgraph project, the DFA-03 Dopp.
This was the Garma Zabi Bandai-EX Model i bought in Japan, prefer the mass produced green Dopp up against Garma's orange one but he's getting his own model suit so he should be happy.
Crazy front profile, bat like. Added the yellow warning around the side canopy to add a little detail and try to make such an unusual aircraft look more realistic along with the Real Grade Zaku decals.
Those massive engines create great speed but hinder manoeuvrability. Missle pods look the same as the gunpod the Zaku Mariner uses.
Added more detail wheels from the spare box, to enter the cockpit the pilots seat lowers from under the canopy.
Massive canopy must give great views, looks like nearly all my weathering is practically invisible.
This unorthodox design developed in a Colony without a great knowledge
about atmosphere meant it was inferior to Federation aircraft which
helped the feddies fight back against zeon on Earth but deployed of the
Thats the first U.C. Hardgraph 1/144 scale vehicle completed, got quite a few more coming soon throughout the year.
