Gaijin Gunpla

Gaijin Gunpla is the title of this blog, and also has become somewhat of a nickname for me by the online Gundam model community, however, there is more to Plamo than just Gunpla, as I am finding out.

And I am branching out!

I was asked to put together the new Wave 1/20 scale Ma.K. Snowman as a blog entry on the hobbylink.tv site, and of course, because I will do whatever it takes to help my company succeed, I agreed to build a plastic model kit.
My co-worker, who has never built a plastic model kit in his life, really liked the look of this machine and picked up the kit for himself. He asked me the basics of building and I have been offering him hints on what tools he would need and what to do and not do when building a kit. He then asked me, “Can you make it look like this?”

And so the challenge has been made, the gauntlet thrown down, the bet placed.
Let’s see what I can do!

    Hey GaiGun is that your Maschinen Krieger Snowman in the banner ad on HLJ?

    hey Tonzo. No, that is the one from the image on the product page. I wanted mine to look like that. I got close.

    Just leave it outside next time it rains. That should deal with most of that grungie look
