Gunpla Decal Application Tutorial (Dry Transfer and Water Slide)

Hi guys! Here’s another article that I wrote for fromjapan. Ever finished an MG kit then you saw how massive the amount of decals were? And you were just so intimidated and afraid that you’ll ruin your kit that you did not go through with applying the decals? Well, be afraid not! Because it’s just intimidating but not really hard to do if you get the hang of it! Here’s the article that I wrote about application of dry transfer and water slide decals. Enjoy! And I hope it helps out fellow Gunpla hobbyists out there! 🙂

RG 1/144 MSM-07S Z’Gok

Hello viewers! I present to you my 3rd Real Grade kit after 3 years! The first two kits that I posted in this blog 3 years ago was RG Aile Strike and RG Zaku II, man that was a long time. I planned to collect all the RG kits years ago, but I haven’t followed through, anyway, RG kits still amaze me, I have to buy more of these kits. I just wish MG kits have this level of detail.

This mobile suit is Char Aznable’s Z’Gok as obviously denoted by the color of the suit; a nice combination of red tones. The MS is pretty simple but looks good on display. Everybody loves a mono-eyed mobile suit right? right?!? XD Okay not everybody, but you have to admit, there is some kind of appeal mono-eyed mobile suits have.

Enjoy the photos!:

Things I don’t like about this kit:

1. Knee armor is a bit loose, that’s the only minor problem.

Thing I like about this kit:

1. Details are amazing

2. Clear stickers/decals are a lot.

3. Articulation is at its best.

4. The mono-eye can be moved.

5. Realistic propellers are included that is on the bottom of his feet and his backpack though I forgot to take photos of those.

6. Different tones of red for his armor

7. Has an inner frame as all RG does anyway.

That’s it! I definitely recommend this kit to all fellow Gunpla hobbyists! Till next time! 🙂

My Current Collection Line-up

Hi! I just wanted to show you guys my current gunpla collection, and along with that I took new profile photographs of each of my gunplas to update my collection page.

Progress in collecting gunplas has slowed down due to daily life events. I hope I can collect and review more gunpla kits and take quality photographs like when this blog was just starting. I had much passion years back when I started collecting gunpla, I hope to rekindle it and not let my airbrush kit go to waste haha! 🙂

Here is my current gunpla collection and corresponding links to posts:
