I'm surprised nobody has made an attempt at the Dendrobium from Stardust.

Well, if we're talking about this, it'd be a pretty boring silhouette for a top-view, unless you built it out as a 3D model and posed it carefully, I'd think. 

Honestly, Gundams in general would be hard to pull off, I'd think. 

I've been contemplating doing Zentraedi and Macross designs and a few other things like that, where the top-down view is actually interesting, though.  I had fun with the one time I did something like that:

I think it'd be an alright silhouette but ultimately it'd be the equipment that came with it that would be spectacular.  108 micro-missile, 3 giant anti-ship rockets, the bomb wire?  That'd be pretty good.

We have Wanzers and I feel like those are well done.  Someone did Iron Blooded Orphans units as well and those were pretty neat.

I'm sure it would be good, unbalanced, Macross Missile Massacre fun, sure!

So, draw it up?  Here's what appears to be the only schematic view of its topside on the Web:


Should be a pretty straightforward to clean that up into a schematic view that somebody might feel like painting.

...paging Tartiflette to include Gundam 0083's stupidly OP (and too advanced for its era) Dendrobium mobile armor into Diable?

I mean, Diable Avionics already has a not!variable fighter and mobile suits in-general (and arguably, one space-capable Jaeger)...

See, wouldn't that be awesome?  I mean, other than the massively-OP part.  Unless you like that.  But you couldn't possibly get around to making it if there wasn't a nice, easy-to-paint schematic view to start with, right?

[EDIT]It's not quite as ugly as I thought it would be.  But it's still pretty ugly.  And low-res.  No way I'm painting it, I have code to write.[/EDIT]

That looks pretty good.  I have no talent in painting or coding, unfortunately.  If you want to get dumbly OP, you could substitute the shield system with an I-Field.  Pretty much guaranteeing nothing but solids could touch the dang thing.

If you really want to get broken?

Spoiler


But no really, look up Deep Striker.  That thing is stupid OP and meant to patrol entire sectors of space solo and engage behind enemy lines with no support.

I've been thinking about a Dendrobium-style mobile armor for years as a DME IBB. It's just a stupid amount of work to do right, and I don't want to do it wrong. And yeah I'd be modifying the silhouette to be more interesting from the top down perspective.

Among other things, the original has a nasty pair of grabber arms, and those would be great fun to bash other ships with.

I did start the other crazy supership I want (think Ikaruga) last night...

Since I brought it up, I'd be completely willing to give feedback, proofreading, or anything that I can do to help.  I'm not a coder and I'm a terrible sprite person so I can't do anything technical.  Sorry about that.
