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!

HG 1/550 AMX-002 Neue Ziel (painted build)

1/550 Neue Ziel

Hi! Had more practice in airbrushing using this kit, it was a friend who gave me this and was bought from Hong Kong, thanks!

He’s not a usual HG 1/144 kit, instead of 1/144, he’s 1/550 in scale because he is humongous in the MS world. On the box it says HG mechanics, upon doing a little research, I found out that this line is mainly MSs that are huge like the Dendrobium!

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.

MG 1/100 RX-78-2 Ver. Ka (painted build)

MG 1/100 RX-78-2 Ver. Ka.

RX-78-2, the White Mobile Suit! The ‘Father’ of all Gundams as some might describe. I’ve been wanting to get my hands on a RX-78 model and I chose Ver. Ka just because of the decals. Though this is an MG kit, it feels though as I am assembling an HG kit while putting together some parts, though some parts are well detailed as expected in MG kits.

MG 1/100 RX-75 Guntank

MG 1/100 RX-75 Guntank

I present to you MG 1/100 RX-75 Guntank! I won this MG kit last year in a raffle during a Gunpla competition. I did not win the competition but I was lucky enough to be a raffle winner of an MG kit, it’s a better prize than winning the consolation prizes. I procrastinated at building him since I wanted to build more HG kits first before venturing into MGs. Now that he’s been in the box art-less box far too long, I decided it’s time to start building him and apply what I’ve learned from the past year in experimenting with my HG kits, and also with that, I’ll start building more MG kits. Though there are a lot of HG kits that I want to have and build.

I was quite excited when I started opening the plastic bags containing the runners, It has been a long while since I’ve built an original Bandai MG kit. The most recent original MG kit I’ve built was Rick-Dom. Let’s start with the review! First off some photos of the individual parts: Continue reading “MG 1/100 RX-75 Guntank”

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. Continue reading “HG 1/144 ORX-005 Gaplant TR-5 [Hrairoo] Titans Prototype Mobile Suit”
