HG 1/144 Lightning Gundam

Hi guys! This is my latest build, nothing fancy, just a straight build and panel lining. Sometimes its nice to keep things simple. This is Lightning Gundam from Gundam Build Fighters piloted by Yuuma Kousaka. It’s a long range sniper unit that can also transform into a mobile unit. I’m currently interested with the HGBF line that I pre-ordered a Wing Honoo, Amazing Red Warrior and Try Burning Gundam last January, the preview photos looked good and I hope the actual kits are too.

Enjoy the photos:

Things I liked about this kit:

1. Long range sniper included

2. Nice default panel lines

3. Includes two beam sabers

4. Articulation is getting better in newer HGs these days

Things I don’t like about this kit:

1. Can’t transform into mobile unit

That’s it! Till next build!

P.S. Sorry, I know the photos are a little muddy, Its because I took them while I was a bit under the weather. I’m actually not satisfied with the photos, I’ll do better next time! 😀

HG 1/144 YAMS-132 Rozen Zulu WIP1

Hi guys! It’s been a while, but here’s my latest WIP, HG 1/144 Rozen Zulu. I had a previous project which was HGBF Bear Guy San, but it was a failure and I have to redo the whole thing and I lost interest on the kit. So I decided to start on a new kit which was this one and get back to Bear Guy III afterwards. This is just the snapfit build, without the backpack yet. I tested out the stickers and it looks okay from afar, but it looks awful up close. It looks like I have to hand paint all the white stripe details on this guy, which will be a pain, but it’ll be worth it if I can pull it off clean.

Here are the photos, I’ll update once I have painted some details and cleaned him up:

HGBF 1/144 Gundam Wing Fenice

Introduction:

Hi guys! Now here is a kit from the Build Fighters anime series! Upon watching the anime series, I got pumped up and wanted to buy the kits featured in the series. Too bad most of the kits that I want like Kampfer Amazing and Zaku Amazing were not available at my local hobby store, only Wing Fenice was available and he is good enough for me. Though it would have been better if I also got the meteor hopper, but someone else beat me to it.

HG 1/144 RX-93-V2 Hi-V Gundam

DSC_1931 copy

Hi guys! I present to you HG 1/144 RX-93-V2 Hi-V Gundam! This was in my backlog for ages! Glad I have accomplished him.

Things I did in this kit:

1. In this kit, I have not done any sanding and just relied on my X-Acto hobby knife to clean out the nib-marks. I decided to do this method to see the difference between a sanded kit versus an un-sanded (just using the hobby knife to clean nib-marks) kit. Sanding parts require a lot of time and effort whilst just using the hobby knife consumes less time and also less effort. The results are acceptable if you want to clean nib-marks faster, but if you want a more flawless work, it’s got to be sanding.

2. I hated the default blue color of the plastic material so I airbrushed the blue parts using Tamiya Sky Blue. Ofcourse I primed the blue parts first using a light grey primer.

3. Basic panel lining and matte coat.

And that’s it! Enjoy the photos! Oh! And I included a gift from my best friendMini Danbo (that included a feature where his eyes light up!) in some the photos, Just click one of the images below to open the gallery:

Things I like about this kit:

1. Lots of lines to mark for an HG kit.

2. Articulation is good for an HG kit.

3. The funnels on his back.

4. Shield design.

Things I don’t like about this kit:

1. The default blue color of the blue parts.

2. Weapons are kind of meh.

3. Back heavy, hard to pose.

4. Clear stickers.. we all know why.. But I still put them on the kit anyway.

Till next post! Thanks!

Hi guys! It’s been a while, I’ve been busy with a small business that I have put up. Anyway, here I present HG 1/144 Zaku III!

1/144 MSA-003 Nemo (full painted build)

1/144 Nemo

Hi guys! This is the first kit that I have accomplished using my airbrush. Still a noob work and needs a lot more improvement.

This is also the first time that I used water-slide decals.

Paints used:

Tamiya Acrylic:

Medium Gray

J.N. Gray

Light Blue

Chrome Silver

Gold Leaf

Gun Metal

Copper

Nato Black

Panel Line Accent Color (Black)

Bosny Spray Paint:

Primer Gray

Clear Gloss

Clear Matte

What I did:

First I snap-fit build the kit and decide the color scheme. After I have decided and planned my color scheme, I took everything apart, sanded and cleaned the nib marks then primed it using Bosny gray primer. Once everything has been primed and dried I started airbrushing everything using my planned color theme, I hand-painted some of the details. After that I sprayed Bosny Clear Gloss over everything to prepare for panel lining using enamel wash. After using the Panel Line Accent Color, I cleaned the excess using enamel thinner then applied some waterslide decals that I have acquired in a recent haul. Lastly I sprayed matte coat to seal everything.

Enjoy the photos:

Using my newly bought Tamiya Spray-work kit was easy and convenient, worth an investment rather than using all those spray cans.
