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.


  1. Oh wow, this is not simple, paint while the parts still in the box, I salute !

    What kind of paint bro using ? 'coz I see lots of Tamiya spray cans at the background. ^^ Tidy enough, bro mask it ?

  2. @Evaritus Lau
    Sharp eyes there. I do have some spray cans at hand, but for this particular kit, I only used paint markers and Gundam markers. I did not use any masking this time as i was a bit lazy and due to the fact that time was of essence. I just took extra care when applying the paint. XD

  3. Ah, that's 1 hell of tidiness wor, respect. =D

  4. It seems like Yue Jin Sangokuden kit is taller that the usual. The young version is very adorable.

    I also think that the young version is very adorable XD
