So I’ve been quiet for a bit, but this time, it’s because I was working on a commission! Specifically, this thing: Note the “A massive 52″ long” on the box. I don’t normally build ship models, but such a huge project was too intriguing to pass on the job. It’s a Revell kit, which usually … More It’s (Not) a Gundam: Revell 1/72 Gato-class Submarine
Someone requested this bad boy from my project list, so I bit the bullet and painted it up. It’s sadly not too popular in my area, so let’s see if I can fix that. The MW-01 Mobile Worker was a heavy lifting vehicle used by the Republic of Zeon before the war. As Zeon became … More Personal Touch: MW-01 Mobile Worker
So, my current massive biggest project is also the biggest Gunpla project I’ve ever done. Sure, I’ve built the PG Zaku II and the PG Wing Zero Custom, but those were pretty sedate, out-of-box builds. My roommate and I have been working on his PG Unicorn, but even there the detailing has been pretty minor. … More PG 00 Raiser WIP Part 1 -0 Raiser!
Okay, fell into a wormhole there. Real life happened and a lot of stuff that – long story short – I don’t need to get into in a Gunpla blog kept me from posting, and largely from modeling. But I’ve had several people asking me when I’d be posting another entry, so I guess I’ll … More Where am I? When am I?!
Sorry, guys! I moved house throughout December, then had holidays, and I’m only just now getting everything settled enough to start blogging again. I’ll be back soon with more reviews and projects. I’ve got something lined up for a progressive painting and review, to make up for my long absence. Something, you could say… Perfect.
So, for Iron-Blooded Orphans, the unique gimmick for the line is that since all the suits are based on similar frames, the crew can scavenge parts from other suits to attach to the Barbatos, increasing its abilities. Thus, the HG IBO line includes not just mobile suits, but inexpensive parts sets, similar to the equipment … More Review: HG 1/144 Barbatos + Option Set 1
The start of a new Gundam series is always exciting. Not only is it a brand new show, Bandai often uses the start of a new line to test new techniques and ways of constructing model kits. So when the Barbatos was first revealed, its very unconventional design excited me. Then when it came to … More Review: 1/144 HG Gundam Barbatos
Okay so while I was doing the write-up for the RG GP01-Fb, I briefly touched upon the FF-XII Core Fighter II. I was going to comment on its very realistic fighter plane shape, reminescent of the YF-19 from Macross Plus, or the real-world Su-47 Berkut. However. Macross Plus came out in 1995. The Berkut, while … More Tangent Corner: GP01 Core Fighter!
It’s a very difficult choice, and it’s changed probably many times throughout the years as I watched more series. At introduction, it was Deathscythe Hell Custom. From there, it became Dynames, then the 00 Raiser. The Ground Gundam was in there somewhere, the Unicorn lasted for a long time, and then it was solidly the … More Personal Touch: RG Gundam “Zephyranthes” Full Burnern (RX-78GP01-Fb)
My wife loves the villain suits from Gundam 00’s second season. She’s had the Gadessa, Gaddess, and Garazzo for a while now, but the Reborns always eluded her. I had my copy from back when I first built it in 2011, but it’s been through two moves and has since fallen loose, and literally lost … More Detail Up: HG Reborns Gundam
