Hi again!! I traded a couple of XV9 with a friend several months ago, and these last weeks I decided glue and paint it.
But, the current aesthetics of the XV9 don´t like a lot, therefore I decided convert mi XV9.
I wanna a XV9 with dual fusion cascades. I thought that a shield generator in this dude could be useful, making longer his life expectancy
So I´m glued the two fusion cascades join, and build a gun structure with stabilizers for the right arm using a burst cannon bits and plasticard.
I´m also removed the shoulder wings of the XV9 and added two XV8 thrusters instead.
In the holes between the shouldes I added the front part of two pulse carbines for represent the photon casters (for this reason, I painted the barrels as if they were blue optical lenses, instead paint it like black barrels).
I´m also converted four drones, with my own version of shield generator drones. I called it "crab pan drones" and I converted it with the upper part of a hammerhead´s burst cannon system, and the lower part of a Pathfinder´s burst cannon drone.
Hope you like it!!
