WIP : Bandai HGUC GM Space Command Pt.1 – Construction

Next up is yet another kit that I have finished snapfitting for a long time. It also continues my EFSF grunt mobile suit collection (what a mouthful). This is one of the earlier HGUC releases so it suffers from the typical problem of its vintage: overly large hands, limited poseability and a somewhat squat stature. …...

Upcoming : P-Bandai HGUC EWAC Jegan

P-Bandai is a double-edged sword. For one thing, it gives Bandai a chance to issue obscure subjects. On the other hand, these are sometimes the more interesting subjects but are hard to get your hands on. This is one of them. This is coming in February 2018 @ 3,240JPY.

WIP : Bandai HGUC RGM-79G GM Ground

I just got this one snapfitted and it looks very good. Just a few quick thoughts: The proportions are good. It doesn’t suffer from the typical HGUC ailments of big hands, small heads and small waists. The waist is small but not too bad here. I’m liking the new design aesthetics of the newer releases. …...

WIP : Bandai HGUC 1/144 GM Quel Pt.2

After the EF-111A Raven, I’ve been trying to get this completed before the end of April. I tried to get some paint variation like my previous build but it didn’t turn out that well. I also tried to see if I can get a stronger base coat to prevent the paint from being scratched off …...

A quick look at a Daban 1/144 Jegan ECOAS and Base Jabber Type 89

I thought it’d be interesting to take a look at some bootleg kits from Daban. They go for a fraction of the price of the originals so are they worth the savings? None withstanding the ethics of getting bootlegs, it’s a mixed bag. They look OK from a distance but up close, flaws do appear …...

WIP : 1/144 HGUC MSN-003 Nemo

Decals (what little there are) are now on. After the decals have cured, I’ll coat them with another layer of Future then I’ll proceed with panel lining. I’m still thinking of what panel coloring to use for the blue sections. We’ll see. Most importantly, my first finished kit of 2016 is in sight!...
