So it’s now October. Apparently there were these months, August and September, that just finished happening that I failed to pay attention to and as such failed to write a Work Table post for both. You know what? I don’t feel bad.
Now that the temperature around here has started cooling down I actually feel like moving and perhaps even getting something done. I spent this past week preparing for painting. And then a typhoon came.
Now let’s talk about models and what is…
No Longer on the Work Table
This is where I write about the kits that I have completed since the last update and looking over my stuff I see that, hey, I did complete something. Three somethings, in fact.
Sonic the Marasai
I am very satisfied with how this kit turned out. Parts of three MG kits went into the making of this mecha-rodent and I feel I pulled off the theme pretty well. Others must have thought so too because it even showed up on Tomopop.
Also completed sometime in the last couple of months…
RG Justice Gundam
Another great looking kit from Bandai. I didn’t need to do much to it as it looks amazing OOB.
And I even managed some Gentei.
限定 MG RX-78-2 Ver. 2.0 Real Type Color
A quick, fun build with some details added by me. Best part about this kit, aside from it being the Real Type Color, are the water-slides Bandai included.
With those out of they way it’s time to talk about what is currently…
On the Work Table
My Buffalo Sabres Blitz!
This guy is nearing completion. I’ve been taking my time getting the painting done, dividing my time between paint prep for this guy and a certain vehicle model. For the most part I’m happy with how it’s turning out, though I really hate painting white!
An MG Gelgoog!
I got this guy because I wanted to play around detailing that very large frame, though the Gelgoog build got delayed with the arrival of the other kit on my work table.
MG Buster Gundam!
This guy blew me off my feet so I want to spend some more time with this great kit. The thing is, I’m not sure what I want to do with it. Usually I can look at the kit and an idea will pop into my head but with Buster no such idea is forthcoming yet. Does that mean I paint it in the stock colors? I’m sure something will come to me in the near future.
Speaking of the near future. It’s now time for…
Coming to the Work Table
Next week I’ll be heading to the Tokyo Model show and there I hope to see the kit I’m most excited about, the MG Nu Gundam Ver. Ka. The test shots in the most recent hobby magazines have me drooling. I also am kind of curious about how the MG AGE-2 Dark Hound will look as it is kind of on my radar. I’m also really excited to see the MG Aegis and hoping for some more MG SEED magic. One other kit I am hoping to get my hands on even though it’s not new, per se, is the HG Gundam AGE-FX kit. I wasn’t too interested in it but pictures in recent magazines have caused me to rethink this. I hope to pick it up and play around with it when Bandai restocks in October. And let’s not forget the RG line. The Zeta is only a month or so away and Bandai has revealed it has a wave-rider form. Crazy.
Two other kits that are actually under my desk at the moment will be cracked open and put on the Work Table very shortly.
And another gentei kit is in my possession. The MG 1/100 MS-06S Black Tri-Star Zaku Ver. 2.0.
I’ve been lucky to get my hands on some of the rarer Gentei kits and if you’re also lucky, you can too. I am not supposed to write anything specific yet, but if you’re interested in limited edition kits, keep your eyes on this site.
How’s everyone else’s work table looking? As messy as mine?
