W.I.P BB Senshi Sangokuden Shin Enshou Bawoo!

It is New Year's Eve and what better way to start the new year than to start on a new model kit!
This is the first kit I start on since my return from Taiwan. Concidentally the Shin Enshou Bawoo is bought during my Taiwan trip. I quite like the design.

Above is the front & back of the head before painting & panel lining.

It looks much better after some painting and panel lining. I used my gold oil-based paint marker for the job. 

The torso after some touches of the gold marker

add the red foil sticker with some red from the red paint marker for touch up

the shoulder before painting

The shoulder looks quite plain without painting even with the foil stickers. Decided to paint the borders gold.

After painting, it looks much more better. Looks like I need quite a lot of gold paint for this model.

Both shoulders after painting

The arm before painting
 The arm looks a bit plain even after panel lining, so I decided to paint some parts gold again.

The fists are all gray. There should be some red added to it. Will soon be retified.

Leaving them to dry

Shoulders & arms done!

Time to attach them together

Not bad looking chap

The waist is done!

He finally can stand on its own.... sort of....

Will continue with this model next year....that is tomorrow. Hehe...

Anyway Happy New Year to you folks!

Taiwan Bounty!!! 29 model kits!!!!

As I mentioned in the previous posts, I have been away to Taiwan for the past 10 days, thus unable to make any new posts. As I mentioned I took the chance to get some Gunpla there as they were quite cheap as compared to here. About 40 - 50% cheaper to be exact. I will mainly touch on my Gunpla buying spree in this post and will try to cover the other aspects of my trip in other posts hopefully.

For most of my gunpla, I went to Ximending in Taipei. The building was called Millienium Tower I think.
The whole of the 4th floor is filled with Gunpla selling shops and selling at very low prices.
The others I bought at the Taipei Underground Shopping Street.

The Millienium Tower

In total I brought back 29 model kits with some other misc. items as well. Yeah right, I totally lost control of myself when I stepped into the shops. I actually planned to bring back at most 10 but once I set my eyes on the Gunpla, it's 'I want that! I also want that! I been looking for that for ages!'
