>.> For god sake someone do the following things for me.

A. Confirm these awesome designs are canon
b. Find me a link that's not oddly water-marked so I can clean up the scans! :D
First and foremost, I like the work you just did in cleaning up the lineart. But I actually thought people would've discovered the lineart either at Gundam Guy's blog or at the Gundam Wiki. My source (for an old post of my rarely-updated blog that I don't think I ever referenced here) was the former. But the add-ons for the Gundams apparently doesn't stop there...

I'd like to point you to this Frozen Teardrop & Glory of the Losers/Defeated thread of another forum. I've been following it on occasion for a while, and recent scans confirm something that was clued at in the above Sandrock/Shenlong/Heavyarms lineart pages and even earlier in September last year about Deathscythe's add-on wings (that look like a smaller version of Wing Gundam's wings with some modifications). Not only has recent manga scans confirm that, but Sandrock is also seen using leg parts of a WMS-04 Olifant for added mobility and two beam rifles attached to the shoulder armor for additional firepower. WMS-03 Maganacs can also be seen using such add-ons. You can see scans of the augmented Deathscythe and Sandrock in action in this specific post.

Just a correction for the Jupiter [Zeus] in Operation Titan:

AMX-103P Waiqueure is the correct spelling of the suit as seen on the pullout poster in the Dengeki serialization from 1996. Char Aznable is the pilot of this and Haman Karn is the pilot of the MS-15 PLUS Gann Ex.

Sorry to contradict you Deacon, but, although in the Shin MS Senki manga there is a color page where the AMX-103P is indicated in western alphabet as "Waiqueure", I don't think this can be properluy considered a "correct" spelling. In fact, the original katakana is ワルキューレ (WARUKIyu-RE), which is exactly the Japanese for "Valkyrie" (or, if you prefer the German version, "Walküre"), and makes perfectly sense for a "female warrior unit", considering that the pilot is definitely Haman, not Char.

For a further proof of this last fact, please look carefully at the AMX-103P, both on the mentioned color
picture and on the manga pages: you will note the presence of a peculiar marking (PE-210) on the shoulder, as well as on the rear propellant tanks; the same numbers are placed on the helmet of Haman, who is clearly the pilot of this NT use machine, as can be also argued by the dialogues and by the disposition of the balloons (which leaves Char as the pilot of the MS-15 PLUS). :)

Unless something has changed since the manga was originally penned, Haman has to pilot the MS-15PLUS Gann Ex seeing that Char makes the comment of "You've come a long way, Haman" after having shot down 8 units or whatever. I'll post a pic of it once I get out of work.

As for it being "Valkyrie", I'm well aware of that, but given that Japan has always had strange and impossible names for mobile suits (hello Zssa I'm looking at you), it's only natural to follow the proper convention.

Edit: Now that I think about it, I think the suit names may be mixed up. The AMX-103P should be the mobile suit with the tentacle-like arms since it's a psycho corps (lol phycho corps) mobile suit. Thus, making the Gann EX the mobile suit that Char pilots. It makes more sense that way seeing as how Haman's Newtype prowess would be put to the test that way.

Edit2: Yup, that's the reason... the wrong pictures are on the wrong profiles... (hence my confusion)

The image currently on the site for the MS-06F Zaku II under "08th MS Team version" is incorrect. Here is the correct line art for the 08MST version of the F-type Zaku:

(I can't believe I just stumbled on this randomly! I'm pretty sure the only place I've seen it before is a half-inch-tall thumbnail in the manual for the 1/144 RX-79[G] vs. MS-06J model kit two-pack.)

That goes back to the days when the 08th MS Team's version of the 06J was considered the same as the MSV one, before it got retconned to 06JC. I guess the assumption was that the F looked the same.

I'm not sure what you mean - is there some indication from more recent sources that the 08MST version of the 06F is officially considered to be identical to the 06JC?

No. The base lineart for the MSG/MSV versions of the F and J is identical. Back in the Mecha Domain days, Burke must've assumed the same was true for the 08th MS versions of the F and the J, as this was several years before the 08th MS J was retconned to the JC. Using my recently re-discovered Mecha Domain archive, I found that he had it the same way it still is now on MAHQ. If that F Type lineart can be cleaned up, I'll add it to the site.

That's actually the line art for the Master Grade version - it's not from 08th MS Team. There doesn't appear to be any genuine line art for the F type Zaku that appears in the first episode of 08th MS Team, although there is black-and-white line art for a version of the JC with no shield spikes, which is probably the closest thing you'll get.

Nice work Wingnut!

Here's the Shenlong Liaoya and Sandrock Armadillo Heavyarms will have to wait til tomorrow cause I'm feeling a bit tired. In the mean time, anyone who speaks Japanese could pull weapon descriptions maybe? Please?

Found a page with line-art for the Air Scooter from the Jaburo invasion story arc of MSG 0079. The page is in Italian.

On an older note, I noticed that we don't have lineart for the "EF Aggressor colors" of the Gelgoog Marine - as seen piloted by Chuck Keith in the final few minutes of 0083 ep 13.
Since someone requested it as a recolor earlier in the Custom Lineart thread and I did it, I thought I'd plug it here for addition to its profile.

That's almost certainly fanart rather than official lineart.

I dunno. I'm pretty sure I've seen that art style in an official art book or some-such, but I couldn't tell you which one.
Further research is probably in order.

They're done in style of Katoki's redesign to other M-MSV MS (Aqua GM, RX-81). However, those are done for specify work (Aqua GM is in Harmony, RX-81 is in battlefield record), while these two aren't.

Oh, and while the artist use same style, his skill is still not in same level with Katoki's. Obviously a fan art.
