Sitting down to write this month’s Work Table entry I had to pause for a moment and think to myself, ‘Did I complete anything this month?’ At first I drew a blank, but then I remembered. Yes, I did. I did complete something and it is…
No Longer on the Work Table
Maybe I had forgotten about this project because it was just a straight build. Or perhaps with the family back at home I have more things occupying my time than I did in the two months previous. Either way, I completed a project, and would have completed a second one if not for the rain we’ve had for the last week. I can’t spray the final flat coat on another kit because of the damp weather so, for now, that kit can be considered to be…
On the Work Table
1/144 RG MS-06S Zaku II
This guy has all the decals on and I will flat coat it once the weather is nice and dry. Some of the stickers, particularly on curved parts of the foot, don’t stay on well so I am hoping the flat coat will hold them down.
PG Strike Freedom – aka Courage.
(I’m proud of the job I did on the skirt frame so I am using this excuse to show them again).
As most of you already know, this kit is now part of the PG SF Group Build challenge being showcased on the Gundam Australia Forum. I am slowly making headway on this build and will be looking into the painting strategy part of it soon. With such an expensive kit I worry about something going wrong so I may pick up the much cheaper HG or no-grade Strike Freedom kit and experiment on that before wreaking havoc on the PG. Also, I have been pondering… damage.
Ako Hobby Barzam Conversion!
This has been put by the wayside while I wait for better weather and more time to paint. I admit to being a little less focused on this project now that the PG is gaining steam, but I feel an obligation to all the people who voted for it in The Poll.
And a non-Gundam kit is in progress, as well.
1/8 MG Heat Metal
And the newest kit on the Work Table:
1/100 MG 00 Raiser
It’s an MG so I had to start on it right away. My feelings on this kit once it is test-built and reviewed will decide whether I take it back apart for any modifications or painting or whether I place it aside for a later time. So far so good, though.
Kits that have been set aside until a later date and are now…
Under the Work Table
HG Reborns Gundam – I have firm ideas in mind for what I want to do with this kit but lack the time to work on it along with the projects that are currently ongoing. This will be one of the kits I break out when I burn out a bit on the bigger ones.
HG Extreme Gundam – I have an idea what I want this to look like upon completion but most of my attention (when I am thinking about it) involves the guitar. 😉
MG Wing Gundam EW Version – Should I do this before or after Epyon?
And now that I am back on MG 00 kits the Qan[T] might resurface.
Coming to the Work Table
The recent Shizuoka Hobby show saw Bandai announce some upcoming kits and even though I was already sold on the MG Epyon now I am chomping at the bit. And I don’t mind the color anymore, in fact, I think I like it. (Still changing it, though.)
And we all knew it was coming and the pictures from Shizuoka confirmed it; the MG Delta Plus will soon be upon us and it looks sweet!
What about my fellow Gunplars? What’s your Work Table look like?
