WIP : HGUC RX-78GP01 Pt. 2 – Painting & Finishing

General malaise has slowed down my builds but I’m trying to ramp it up again by finishing this one. I managed to lose the insert on the left torso so I scratchbuilt something out of plastic plate and Kotobukiya minus molds. Painting begins as usual with a base coat of black. My GP01 will have …...

WIP : HGUC RX-78GP01 Pt. 1 – Construction

I’ve had this kit snapfitted for a few years already so I thought it’s time to finish it before Bandai eventually releases a new version. Except for the overly large hands typical of older HGUC releases, I’ve always liked the proportions of this kit. So there’ll just be very minor mods on this one. First …...

WIP : Bandai HGUC GM Space Command Pt.2 – Painting & Finishing

Before painting, the tedious task of fixing seamlines and sprue marks begin. I’ve been turning to using an old bottle of Tamiya IJN Gray as a primer coat to reveal the problem areas. Various fillers were used including AK Interactive putty, super glue and epoxy putty. Painting can then begin! I decided to go with …...

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. More pictures at Gundam Kits Collection....

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. …...
