A while back I set into motion a rather ambitious project. A third MG Unicorn themed off of the Full Armor version.

It's not going to have all of the bells and whistles though. It'll be toned down a little bit, but should be impressive none the less. It'll also feature a four toned paint job (white, light gray, gray, dark gray) and a brilliant metalic green for the psycho frame.

Behold, the kit that got things rolling again...

This kit was a load of firsts. It was the first kit I painted, the first time I used an air brush, the first time I weathered, and the first time I used water slide decals.

Painting and using an airbrush for the first time turned out better than expected. The paint went on easily and looks fantastic. If you look closely you can see that in my naivety the coverage is down right terrible. Luckily, on this kit, I was able to pull it off. With the weathering it looks natural. It just goes to show that sometimes you just get lucky.

The End of Ngee Khiong, A Divided Community?

The Lonely Man

Today was the beginning of a rather sudden end to Ngee Khiong, the leading source for Gundam and mecha related toy news on the internet. For as long as I can remember, having gotten back into Gunpla, I would visit Ngee Khiong on a daily basis (if not more than that). For the English speaking community there is no greater source for breaking news, price announcements, official & show photos, and even front running reviews. Unfortunately NK has decided to close down the site, leaving a giant gap in the community. Leaving a community shocked, saddened, confused, and angry. A community, apparently to blame.

1/48 Gundam, WIP Update #3

Body: 

I really need to keep track of what updates I post here. Apparently all of my 1/48 Gundam status updates have different titles and different tags. Stupid me.

Anyhow, here's my Mega Size 1/48 Gundam as it stands right now...

WIP 8/15

WIP 8/15

Still lots of work to do. Plenty of lines need to be refinished, some of the gold and silver details need to be touched up, a little bit of weathering, and at some point a final top coat.

I actually started building this kit over a year ago. I remember picking the kit up for cheap on eBay, building it, and modifying a MG Nemo gun for it. Then, for whatever reason, I shelved it for later. Now in the past two week it's turned into an experimental test subject to finalize some addition to the Layman's Gunpla Guide.
