It’s gotten cold as of late and a typhoon was supposed to reach here but swerved eastward and spared us. How disappointing. And now it’s time for the November 2010 edition of The Work Table.
To start, let’s look at what is no longer on my work table.
Finished this guy up at the beginning of October. I tried out the digital masking camo tape that I picked up previously with satisfactory results. View the gallery here.
That’s it? Only two this month? Well, I was on vacation for a week so I will have to take that into consideration. I did build the ANA 00 Raiser, though!
On the Work Table – Projects Underway
This guy has been prepped for painting and is waiting his turn. I will be adding aftermarket parts to the frame and haven’t decided on decals yet. Do I create my own or get some from Samuel Decal? Follow the WIP here.
I still need to assemble the skirt and backpack on this guy. For a kit I like so much I am taking my time with this one. There’s no need for me to build it quickly. I have a colour scheme in mind but don’t know if I can make it work. Must do some tests. Follow the WIP here.
The Real Type Armor Color version of the RG has been painted and now sits in pieces in its box. I am working with the B-Club 1/144 SEED hands to get them to fit the RG hand armour piece, then I will paint them as well. For decals, Samuel at samueldecal.com said he could probably reproduce his 1/100 scale decals into 1/144 scale size for me, however he’s a busy guy and recently had a new addition to his family, so congratulations to him are in order, but I might not be able to wait much longer. I know I could probably create the decals from various sets myself, but was hoping for a quicker solution going with his.
This guy is half painted. I am having problems trying to get the orange the tone I want it. Other than that, I only have to paint some of the frame and apply the MG Wing decals I picked up for this purpose. This will probably be completed soon. Unless I go crazy trying to stick the MG Wing wings onto it. No, I would never do something like that…
This awesome HG has been painted and I am just working on the mods. Won’t be long now.
Another awesome HG. I built this for its own Gunpla TV episode and now I get to have fun with it. Paint and decals, but do I do something about the gold foils?
I am building this as part of the Gundam Australia Forum’s Group Build (which I actually initiated). We have 13 people so far! Who else wants in? I spent time with this the last couple of night and it’s awesome so far!
Under the Work Table – Got it! Haven’t started.
I will build this kit.
1/144 HGUC Hazel Custom
I will build this kit, too.
After following Busterbeam’s WIP on the Macross kit he was building and seeing the final result I really wanted to try my hand at building one. The Alto Custom which just released caught my attention so it’s now part of my backlog. 一寸緊張しています。
Coming to the Work Table – I want it!
After attending the All-Japan Hobby Show and seeing the Strike Freedom in person I am salivating at the thought of building it. An image of the PG Strike Freedom is Pavlov’s bell and I am the dog. December!
Due out this month, here’s another I saw at the show and am eagerly awaiting release day. RG is the new black.
There are other kits on the way such as the 1/144 HGUC MS-07B3 Gouf Custom that I have interest in but haven’t decided yet if it will be added to the pile. High Grade kits are appealing to me more and more these days.
Tune in December 1 to see how much progress I have made. Or not made, as the case may be.
