HG 1/144 ORX-005 Gaplant TR-5 [Hrairoo] Titans Prototype Mobile Suit

DSC_0003 Hi viewers! Time for to show one of my latest work! Actually I have finished this guy long before I finished the Sinanju KO kit. My initial photos were crappy so I had to redo them. This kit is pretty interesting! He can transform into a mobile armor just like Rezel and other MS like them. This is the second kit that I applied battle damage, the first one was Age-1 Titus. Adding battle damage, although really time consuming, is quite fun! Especially when you get to the part where you put bullet holes or melted parts.

As usual I used chrome silver for the scratch marks, for the bullet holes and melt parts, I still used my own method which is burning toothpicks and sticking them to the area I want a bullet hole effect. After I have melted the parts, I painted some chrome silver on for that melted metal effect and some copper for corrosion or something. Lastly I experimented and used desert yellow in weathering the white armor areas. Overall he looks good in a distance, but you will see that I did the weathering hastily when you zoom in.DSC_0082 He’s a big model compared to the usual HGs, and a bulky one at that too!DSC_0080 He has a cool ‘long blade rifle’, It’s actually a beam pistol with a long barrel attachment with a heated blade at one side.DSC_0077 The two units on his left and right arm is the Hrududu II which produces a strong beam. DSC_0075 He can fire 3 powerful beams at once, two from his Hrududu II and one from the long barrel beam pistol.DSC_0074 Oh and I pbainted the yellow parts gold leaf, the tube on his arms copper and the inner frame gun metal as usual.DSC_0071 The long beam pistol can be mounted on his right shoulder, I think this is for added power or something, I’m not sure.DSC_0069 DSC_0068 DSC_0067 DSC_0066 DSC_0064 DSC_0062 DSC_0061 DSC_0060 Again we have the irritating clear stickers lol! XD I sticked them as best as I can.DSC_0059 DSC_0058 DSC_0057 DSC_0056 DSC_0055 DSC_0054 DSC_0053 DSC_0052 Painted the thrusters on the legs copper, then some titanium gold on the rectangular panels.DSC_0050 DSC_0048 DSC_0047 DSC_0045 DSC_0044 DSC_0043 DSC_0042 DSC_0040 DSC_0038 DSC_0037 DSC_0036 DSC_0035 DSC_0033 DSC_0032 The ugly clear stickers, but I still put them on haha! XDDSC_0031 DSC_0030 DSC_0029 DSC_0027 This is also the first kit that I tried using enamel paint in panel lining, wash as some may call it, its because you dilute the enamel such that it will run through the lines.DSC_0025DSC_0024DSC_0022DSC_0021DSC_0020DSC_0019DSC_0018DSC_0017DSC_0016DSC_0015DSC_0014DSC_0013DSC_0012DSC_0011DSC_0010DSC_0009DSC_0008DSC_0006DSC_0005DSC_0004I did some more photos using black background, but it turned out dark, lazy to edit:DSC_0030 DSC_0031 DSC_0033 DSC_0034 DSC_0035 DSC_0036 DSC_0037 DSC_0039 DSC_0042 DSC_0043 DSC_0044 DSC_0045 DSC_0046 DSC_0047 DSC_0048 DSC_0049 DSC_0050 DSC_0052 DSC_0053 DSC_0054 DSC_0055 DSC_0056 DSC_0057 DSC_0058 DSC_0059 DSC_0060 DSC_0061 DSC_0062 DSC_0063 DSC_0064 DSC_0065 DSC_0067 DSC_0068 DSC_0070 DSC_0071 DSC_0072 DSC_0073 DSC_0074 DSC_0075 DSC_0076 DSC_0078 DSC_0079 DSC_0080 DSC_0081 DSC_0082 DSC_0083 DSC_0084 DSC_0085 DSC_0086
I had a hard time transforming him into the mobile armor mode and ended up not doing it anymore haha! 🙂 He’s suppose to have two beam sabers, I messed up the paint job of the other one. XD Oh and he has a different v-fin for the mobile armor mode, too bad I was not able to show it in the photos.

Anyway overall he’s a pretty interesting kit:

What I like about this kit:

1. Different build structure since it can transform into a mobile armor

2. Nice set of weapons

3. Large and bulky compared to usual HGs

4. Comes with its own action base.

5. Comes with clear decal stickers.

What I don’t like about this kit

1. The beam sabers are of single color, you have to paint them to look nice.

2. It’s hard to follow the instructions in transforming him into a mobile armor.

3. Too bulky that its takes up a lot of shelf space XD

That’s it for now! Till next post! I’m doing an MG kit next! 😀

  1. I have a Master Grade Heavy Arms waiting for me. I am SO afraid to start it. When I ordered it, I knew it was going to be big. The box was huge, and the parts count is astronomical. Your pics make me want to get started on mine. Maybe not as weathered as your (great by the way), but definitely with lots of details.
