What a month March was ungunpla-wise. I’m exhausted just thinking about it. It goes without saying that I did not get much done in the way of modeling, but that can’t be helped I suppose. I did manage to work on a few things here and there. So, as usual, let’s start with what has ended and is
no longer on the Work Table.
HGFC Nobell Gundam
Okay, I finished this kit in February, but failed to get the final gallery up until after March 12th. My goal was to make this a real companion to the G Gundam and I did just that. Same paint was used as well as the Ver ka decals. Pair look!
Now it’s April and I know I can’t dwell on what happened in the recent past so I have begun picking up the model kits again. I’ve actually been bouncing back and forth the last couple nights. So here’s what is
On the Work Table
Ako Hobby Barzam Conversion!
This was the winner of The Poll so I knew I had to get on it as promised. In a way I’m really lucky because the base is the great MG Gundam Mk-II Ver. 2.0 Titans and it’s a fantastic kit. However, (there’s always a however, isn’t there?) I am finding the Conversion Parts to be very difficult to work with. The fit is not good at all, or not good compared to the near perfection of Bandai’s kits and on almost all the pieces I haven’t got them to fit into place and will probably have to do some modifications. It looks cool though.
HGUC MSN-06S Sinanju Titanium Finish
Look at that finish! An awesome kit made awesomer. (Hey, it’s my site, I can use the word ‘awesomer’ if I want.) I’ve actually got it all built, complete with aurora stickers for the eyes and gun sensors, and now am working on all those decals. There’s a lot of them. And there’s no labeling of which is which! I have to match the decals on the sheet to the pictures in my MG Sinanju manual. This is time consuming. Is this decal hell again?
There’s another kit sitting on my work table which I haven’t started yet but will do so soon. I’ve already got the paint I need for it and because I know what I’m going to do already I consider it to be on the work table. It’s none other than the:
MG XXXG-01S Shenlong
I’m using paint colors I haven’t touched before and will do my own decal work so this may be really cool or a complete mess. Everyone will have to judge for his/herself once it’s done.
And still on the work table!
PG Strike Freedom Gundam
The hobbylink.tv part is finished so now I get to play with it a bit. I’ve got a color scheme in my head and some modifications I want to try. This may be a project that takes quite a bit of time as I won’t get onto it regularly but hopefully I can realize my vision.
I’m going to skip listing the kits that are under the work table because the list is getting long and I don’t know when I’ll actually get around to doing much of them. If I do start one it will become its own category here on this site so don’t worry, you won’t miss out.
Coming to the Work Table – Things I want!
RG GAT-X10S Aile Strike Gundam.
