well considering some parts of ur mesh is not bevelled yet . BUT u can simulate that using texturing . just make sure the edges have perhaps some whitish lines along it . try lookin at rusted metal of sorts as around the curves thats where the colors come off most of the time . well i'll assume that u're gonna make this robot gone thru wars n stuff so its gonna need dents . well if u've got photoshop just set a layer with bevel and then use brush to paint it after that use eraser ( could be brush or pencil ) set the opacity to 50% ( thats wut i normally use anyways ) and erase away the bevelled drawings slowly to get ur dents n perhaps add some white colors along the dent edges n use smudge a bit n stroke it a bit . oh btw for the base color of ur gundam u could use noise and then motion blur it to create an acceptable lookin steel color . well some 2 cents here from me . cheers . :) . i hope those tips help hehehe i'm still experimenting texturing myself too . LETS ALL LEARN !!!

I think the Guns are too big if the Gundam is a land walker. adding bevels would definatly give it a face lift.

You should add more geometry to the hands, and that position it's standing in needs the feet to be more pivoted alog the ground surface.

I'd personally love to see this model in a video game...Keep it up.

The bevelled version looks alot better. Now you gotta work with the lights and the textures ( this really could use some)

Modeling a Gundum is one of the first (personal) projects I am working on. Look'n good...but, have you checkout any bookstores/anime stores in your area? Because, I know of a Gundam tech manual(I forget the name of it). Anyway, It could help you with getting the right perportions with the leggs. However, like I said...awsome work. Can't wait to see it textured.

This is looking really good! The bevel adds a lot to the model! Lets see this baby textured!!

Believe it or not, When i made my Gundam, I made the the whole thing with Nurbs.

The Textures i made in photoshop. You'd be surprised how quickly you can get what you want in 2 or 3 attempts.

Using a bursh and smudge tool i created bitmaps that were only 50x50 and it had a nice outcome. The Materal i applied it as is the Blinn with mild bumpmapping, And a Gold Shader which i borrowed from a Maya shader list online.

I use a render of it as my Avatar. And i'll post a few images of it sometime.
