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!...

WIP : 1/144 HGUC MSN-003 Nemo

So while waiting for the paint on the other projects to cure, I decided I needed to finish up this partially painted kit. I’m following the default color scheme quite closely but to add some interest, I decided to add some splinter camouflage to the blue color. The darker blue is Model Master Acryl Blue …...

WIP : HGUC RGM-79Q GM Quel Pt. 1

This is my version of the RGM-79Q GM Quel operated by the Titans of the Earth Federation. It’s my entry into Plamo’s WOOB 07. I’m combining the upper body and arms of the HGUC GM Quel with the bottom half of the HGUC GM Custom. Why? I find the lower portion of the HGUC GM …...

Remembering: Choudenshi Bioman

Choudenshi Bioman (Super Electronic Bioman) was one of the first Super Sentai series that I remember. When I was a kid, I’d buy the monthly Televi-kun, a magazine about children’s Japanese TV programs. Even though it was in Japanese, I’d obsess over the pictures. During that time, Choudensi Bioman was the featured...

WIP : Bandai HGUC RGM-79 GM Pt.2

I cut up the leg joints up so the lower leg can twist independently from the thighs. I find it gives the GM a better look. The cutting is quite rough so I’ll probably need to do some fixing to make the break in the joint less obvious. To allow the legs to be pushed …...
