WIP - BB Senshi Sangokuden SD Yue Jin Gundam

I am flying off to Kuching, Sarawak for a holiday tomorrow. Before that I decide to finish a simple project, the Yue Jin Gundam. This is a extension of the Sangokuden series. The model kits are a bit smaller than the normal sangokuden kits. This kit look simple in terms of minal painting needed. But yet I like the colour variations. So I decided to finish it in one night.

Look! I'm taller!

After completing this kit, I liked the idea of him having a young version of himself. Looks cute actually. After applying the face and the armor, he looks menacing with the poise of a veteran warrior. Looking back so far, this probably is my 20th Sangokuden kit. I look forward in digging the others out and taking a group photo of them. Of course this is all talk and no action. Hopefully I can find the time and energy to do that.

WIP - GX9900 Gundam X HG 1/144 Part 3

After playing with the completed Gundam X figure for a while, I could not wait to start on its weapons. The legendary satellite cannon which can destroy a moon.

Look! The cannon is juz right for me! XD

start on building the satellite plates

I used the foil stickers as I could not replicate the shiny effect by painting alone

The satellite plates done!

The gatling gun to be attached to the shoulder

The beam rifle assembled and waiting to be painted

Waiting to dry


To tell you the truth, building a kit takes quite a bit of energy especially when I concentrate to build to my best of ability with some painting included. All these were at the back of my mind when I saw the completed figure. The joy of completing a gundam is priceless.
Now what is left to do is to dig out my DX & X Divider to pose for photos beside the Gundam X.
Wait till I have the time to look for them first. They should be somewhere in my room... ... I think.
