Of the two Master Grade Kampfers in my collection, one goes back at least 15 years and was one of my first Gunpla kits. For 5 years of that life it’s been sitting in a box with its partner, partially disassembled and awaiting one of several different paint jobs I’ve been thinking of over the years. Having not painted a kit in a while I figured it best to dust the kit off and kill two birds with one stone, the second taking an opportunity to test out Vonschlippe's hairspray chipping tutorial for the first time.
Another build complete, and my first one of 2017. At the very least it can't get any worse from here. Behold, Dragon Momoko's PG Unicorn. It's actually pretty good looking, though the devil's in the details, and the details is where things went south for me.
Back in 2014 I swapped out the pyschoframes of a MG Unicorn Gundam and a MG Phenex Gundam. While I had intended to paint them, they unfortunately got set aside as different projects popped up. Now, over two years later, I've picked up the project again, starting with Hell.

This has been partly because I've been super busy, and partly because the kit I've been working on has been yet another Perfect Grade. This time, it's the PG Banshee. Since I'm not attempting to build this in a single week, like my last PG Unicorn, this one has taken ages. The first paint tests took place a whopping 3 months ago. The backpack and beam magnum got finished a month ago while I only finished the torso yesterday. If all goes well, I'll finish this kit by the end of the month. In the meantime, here's how things are currently looking...
