A visit to the 1/1 Unicorn Gundam at Odaiba, Tokyo

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 : 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 …...
