WIP : Bandai 1/144 RGC-80 GM Cannon Pt.2 – Construction

It has taken awhile but here we are with more work done on the GM Cannon. I replaced the left fist with a clenched one from a Builders Parts set. The cover for the back of the hand is the kit part modified to fit the new fist. I added a Kotobukiya nozzle to cover …...

WIP : Bandai 1/144 RGC-80 GM Cannon Pt.1 – Construction

It’s actually quite strange that Bandai still hasn’t issued any of the Federation mobile suits in the MSV line but have done so for the much newer Origin MSV. Oh well, if I knew what’s going on, I’d be the product line manager for Bandai. In any case, I sought to modify the Origin MSV …...

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 …...

Upcoming : HGUC Barzam

Next in the HGUC line is the weirdly proportion mass production Barzam from Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam. Even though it’s oddly shaped, it’s actually designed by the famous Mamoru Nagano. There is a Refined Barzam design that was done by Hajime Katoki for Gundam Sentinel that brought the design more in-line with the Gundam Mk....

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 …...

Upcoming : P-Bandai HGUC Zeta Plus C1

Coming soon from P-Bandai (i.e. exclusive) is the next variant of the Zeta Plus. This time it’s the C1 with the propellant tanks on the back and the handheld giant beam gun. I had the original HG kit in the 1990s which I snapfitted and threw onto my shelf. This is coming in @ 2,529 …...
