Moving house soon!!!

Yup! Gundam Gunso is moving house soon.
I am looking forward to my new place, as I have prepared a new display cabinet for my kits. Space is definitely an issue currently, therefore the new display certainly allows me to appreciate my kits more.
I am currently busy with the preparations with the new place, hopefully can post some pictures of the kits in their new home soon.

Saying goodbye to this....

MS-07R-35 Gouf R35 HG 1/144

The Gouf R35 HG 1/144 has been completed!
The MS-07R-35 Gouf R35 is a custom gunpla from the anime series Gundam Build Fighters. It was built and piloted by Mr Ral. From the earlier episodes, Mr Ral came across as weak fighter who was always trashed by Reiji whenever he practice with him. Imagine my utter shock when he made his entrance in the final episode when he appears as reinforcements to the group together with Maoh's master. They totally destroyed the enemy. That scene alone was considered one of my favourites of the series.

I have finally completed the Silver Bullet HG 1/144. The Silver Bullet made a brief appearance in the Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn Episode 7 for those who find it familiar. As compared to the other HG 1/144 kits, it is a bit bigger than the others. Overall it has been a fun build.

The ARX-014 Silver Bullet is a variant of the AMX-014 Doven Wolf.
A mobile suit used by the Earth Federation Forces to test the Quasi-Psycommu system, the Silver Bullet is a modified AMX-014 Doven Wolf developed by Anaheim Electronics based on captured units. Although its armament has been trimmed down a little due to its purpose, it is still a high performance MS. The removal of the abdominal mega particle cannons also lightens the suit. Some Silver Bullets have a Gundam head while others have a GM head; the Vist Foundation were given some of them after the EF was done with the tests.

GPS-lacking Gundam gets lost on the streets of Taiwan, asks locals for directions

Recently came across this article about finding a ZZ Gundam getting lost in the streets. I had a good laugh. I want to share the article with you guys as well. That aside, I must say the cosplay itself was very good and detailed.

NRX-044 Asshimar HG 1/144

The latest kit to be completed is the NRX-044 Asshimar HG 1/144 from Mobile Suit Gundam Zeta.

This new suit introduced before the Gryps Conflict by the Earth Federation Forces and the Titans was a truly revolutionary suit despite not being the strongest. The Asshimar was an experimental transformable mobile armor developed at the Oakland Newtype Lab. It was the first suit to be able to fly in the atmosphere of a planet on its own power without the help of a sub-flight system

As in the anime, the kit itself is also transformable to MA mode as well.

HG 1/144 LaGowe

My next completed kit is the HG 1/144 LaGowe from Mobile Suit Gundam Seed.
This is quite a unique mobile suit as most of the MS are of humanoid form but the design is based on something like a wolf in terms of appearance and movement.
The LaGOWE is a quadrupedal commander-type mobile suit used by ZAFT and designed for ground combat. The first LaGOWE was assigned to "Desert Tiger" Andrew Waltfeld, whose lover Aisha served as his gunner. It engaged in battle with the GAT-X105 Strike, but was defeated. Waltfeld did survive, but not without the cost of his left arm and eye, while Aisha died in the battle.

OZ-15AGX Hydra Gundam

My latest kit is the OZ-15AGX Hydra Gundam HG 1/144. It is a HG kit, at least that is what it says on the box. This Gundam is from the little known side Gundam Wing story titled New Mobile Report Gundam Wing Dual Story: G-UNIT.  The OZ-15AGX Hydra Gundam (aka Hydra) is a high performance mobile suit assigned to ruthless OZ pilot Valder Farkill.
As this is quite an old kit, you do not find many of them around anymore. I could say the design is pretty interesting. Building this kit piques my interest for the story which I made up my mind to hunt for the manga.

PMX-000 MESSALA HG 1/144 from Gundam Z

The latest completed kit is the Messala from Mobile Suit Gundam Z. This was Paptimus Scirocco first appearance in the mobile suit. As the mobile suit was from Jupiter, the size was comparably larger to the the others. It can be transform to MA mode as well.

Devil Gundam Final Form 1/144 Straight Build

One of the kits in my backlog is the Devil Gundam 1/144. Take note that this the final form that showed up in the last episode of G Gundam, not the monstrosity that showed up in the earlier.

Old School Box Art

MSA-003 Nemo HG 1/144

The next kit to be completed from my backlog is the MSA-003 Nemo HG 1/144 from the series Mobile Suit Gundam Zeta. Basically it is a grunt unit, actually cannon fodder in the show. But then what is a show without the supporting cast. Anyway the Nemo does not fare badly in the show. The are many variants of the kit, but this time for me, I am going for the basic one.

Latest loot!

HG 1/144 Verde Buster Gundam from Gundam Seed Stargazer

As I continue my quest in clearing my huge backlog, the next kit to be completed is the HG Verde Buster Gundam from the Gundam Seed Stargazer series. Personally I think the Gundams from the Gundam Seed series are pretty well designed and the Buster Gundam is one of my favourites. Verde Buster Gundam is an improvement in terms of firepower which in turn please me more.

My Backlog as at of 3 June 2014!!!

In my last post I mentioned that I have problem of not able to clear my increasing backlog. Today I will show you guys what I mean below.

Grandpa's Gundam - Gundam Age-1 Full Glansa

I know that the series, Gundam Age has its critics (I'm one of them). But put aside the flawed storyline aside, I can say some of the mobile suits' design is pretty good. One of them is the Gundam Age-1 Full Glansa. Basically it is the Age-1 in Full Armor minus its Age Drive component. Furthermore it is piloted by some old-timer(sorry Flit Asuno) in his sixties. That should count for something.
Anyway building this kit allows me to clear my increasing backlog which by the way is HUGE! Hopefully I will be able take this few months to clear a bit of my backlog which means you will may be seeing more kits from Gundam Age and some more way back like Gundam Maxter from Gundam G, some from the 00 Gundam series, just to name a few.

MSM-08 Zogok (Unicorn Ver.) HG 1/144

I started on yet another Zeon remnant mobile suit from the Gundam Unicorn after the last one. This design is also pretty unique. To say the truth, I loved the heat sword that came with it.

Zogok, an amphibious mobile suit loosely based on the Z'Gok. The Zogok, armed with only melee weapons, was designed primarily for close combat. The Zogok featured ten razor sharp boomerang cutter blades on the top of its head, and its hands were mounted on extendable telescopic arms that can do a "rocket punch".

Thursday, May 29, 2014


Finally completed this kit finally. I started work on this soon after I bought it as I thought that its design is pretty unique as compared to the other kits. This kit caught my eye in Gundam Unicorn with its unique design.

Latest Loot May 2014!

Just got myself two kits. One of them is pretty special as it is an old kit from the Gundam V series.

Gundam Seed's M1 Astray HG 1/144 Remastered Edition

My newest kit on the completion table is the M1 Astray from the Remaster series, Mobile Suit Gundam Seed. I only had the very basic non-grade 1/144 model before. Thus I was glad I could get my hands on this kit as I always liked its sleek design as a grunt unit.

Gundam Build Fighters Crossbone Gundam Maoh HG 1/144

I have completed the latest GBF (Gundam Build Fighters) kit in my possession, the Crossbone Gundam Maoh. I have always liked the Crossbone Gundam manga series, thus having a kit that is derived from them is pretty cool. I am pretty impressed with  the idea of incorporating the satellite cannon from the Gundam X into the Crossbone Gundam giving it its newest weapon, the Skull Satellite Cannon.

Mobile Suit Gundam 00 's Over Flag 1/100 Non-Grade

I started on this kit as soon I got my hands on them. Granted that this is a pretty old kit, from the Gundam 00 series to be exact. But I have always like its design as it portrays a sleek image. Just a bit of background on the suit.
