Generation 5.5 Frame
A modification to my fifth generation frame, allowing for moveable shoulder armor that gives greater freedom of movement than its predecessor. Some slight changes were made to the knees and torso as well.
About this creation
This is the frame that is used in the V-Type mk I and the I-Type mk I



I was not happy with the setup of the shoulder armor on my previous frame, so I decided to change it to make it more easy to work with.



The new shoulder armor is mounted on technic pins attached to the shoulders, allowing both the shoulder armor and the shoulder complete freedom of movement.



This allows the frame to achieve a number of poses that were simply not possible before.



The knees were also fixed. For some reason, in real life, the piece I was using worked just fine, but in LDD I needed to use another part in order to allow the knee to bend all the way. One of the program's many oddities.



The changes to the torso have resulted in a more balanced mech, allowing it to stand better under larger weights.



In real life, it can probably even sustain poses such as this.

Quoting Chris Roach how did i not see this before! that's a very cool frame!
Thanks. There is one change I've made to this frame to make the waist rotation more stable, which is to add one of the newer ball joints that have the "+" hole all the way through (not just half way)and a brick with a ball joint socket to the top "rib" to hold the black "spine" more steadily. It seems to work well and doesn't take up much more room. One of these days, I'll get a picture up, when I'm not so lazy.

Quoting leon lara can u use this for seed mecha?
Probably--if you can use it for 00 Gundams, then it probably works fine for other kinds.

Quoting David Britt Awesome looking frame and it seems rather stable. I may have to slop together one and see how it goes if that is alright with you of course. :c
Thats why I post stuff--its for everyone else's benefit, not mine ;) A word of advice though: for best results, use the rubberized ball joint sockets.

You use some really original and interesting joint ideas here. I like the technique you use for the shoulder pads specifically. Can't wait to see your 00 Gundam, man!

Awesome! The poses are great too! I just realized that you were using almost the same method on the legs as I do except for the feets. I might use this sometime for my future projects. It seems to be a perfect frame for a Masurao or an Over Flag with a few mods here and there. Btw I'm uploading my "remastered" Artemis(from Break Blade) soon.

Quoting Rabid Goldfish Very nice. Now we see the inner magic at work. Nicely designed joints, and the flexibility is topnotch. I may try modifying my own frame with some of the styles you have here. ^Blub^
For best results, try and get your hands on some of the ball joint socket parts that are rubberized. They can handle much more weight and hold poses a lot better than standard ones.
