Gunpla

In Progress - RX-78-2 O.Y.W. 0079 - 1/100 MG - Update I

Body: 


My first "official" gunpla, started in late February. By official, I mean sanding, inking, and taking my time to carefully build the model, not just speed building it, like I had done with a 1/100 NG Gundam Exia from late May 2009. I know it is already June 1st, and I haven't made a whole lot of process, but that is truly the beauty of modeling. I can just pick up right where I left off; whenever I have free time or want to spend a few hours working on it I can.

For awhile I tried the simple approach to painting gunpla by using spray cans. It's certainly easier than air brushing since there's no mixing of paints or equipment cleanup afterward. Truth be told, it's possible to achieve great results. Take a look at my MG Nu for example. Unfortunately, there are some negative trade offs vs. using an air brush.

Design Changes

In from a design prospective there aren't a whole lot of differences between the Ver Ka release and the new OVA. Surprisingly the OVA release comes with the exactly same runners as the Ver Ka. The new parts come on two small additional runners. Apparently it was cheaper for Bandai to keep the same molds and include the extra runners.
