WIP - Beginning 30 Gundam Part 3

After slacking off a bit, I returned to the building of the Beginning 30 Gundam. From the last post, the basic form has been completed leaving the armor and the weapons to be completed. Today I will focus on the armor plates.

Add in the panel lines

Adding the effect parts


Adding the first round of the armor plates

Second round with the effect parts of a different colour

Now moving on to the beam saber handles

Add in the panel lines

Add the parts to the back pack

That's all I done for the night. Too tired from work to continue. Hope to finish the rest of it by the next WIP.

Madness Sale!

I was at the local shopping mall when I went into the store Toys 'R' Us. Never knew what hit me.

Whoa! The 1/48 Mega size Zaku II Char's Custom is selling at 40% off. Original price was SGD$169.95. Now selling at SGD$99.95 for the mid-year holidays. I can hear my wallet scrambling away to hide itself from me now. From what I last saw, there were 6 kits left.

WIP - Beginning 30 Gundam Part 1

As mentioned in an earlier post, A short prologue to my latest project : Upgrade!, the Beginning 30 Gundam is my next project. This kit as in the series is a upgrade done by the main character to his beloved Beginning Gundam when he was defeated by the Forever Gundam. A number of features were added such as the 'bug-wing' beam shields.

The box cover

Contents of the box

Starting on the chest

Taking shape quite nicely

There, done!

Parts of the head to be put together

Foil stickers were used for the eyes as usual

Foil sticker was used for the sensor too. Panel lining was done

Adding the V-fin

Starting on the arms next

Decided to paint instead of using the foil sticker

After painting, using an oil-based paint marker

Now only missing a hand

Both arms completed

Joining the arms to the chest

Testing the joints

Working on the feet next

Feet completed!

This kit is the latest HG kit in the Gunpla Builders series. After this kit's completion, I will most probably do a shoot with all 6 of them.
Will start on the lower body next post.

New loot, RG Aile Strike finally!

Finally I have got the RG Aile Strike Gundam in my grasp. BHG at Century Square shopping mall was having a sale.  When I got there, there was only one box left, so I grabbed it. It comes with a free premium for the Action Base 3 too.

Free premium

I guess I have to make time to do this kit soon.
