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.
Right now I would have to say I am roughly halfway through the model, the upper body, head, and arms are completely assembled and inked. I really an enjoying the process of building it, at first it seems like it is slow, with little to no progress. However, as each limb, body part, and extremity is assembled the big picture is soon seen.
A big thank you to Judd a.k.a. Falldog for his Layman's Gunpla Guide
. It has been a huge inspiration, guide, and help throughout the entire process.
That's it for now, working on it a little bit tonight. I know I say this in a lot of posts, but once summer comes around I hopefully will have more time to work on a few of the other models I purchased. I want to finish them before school starts, but who knows, maybe I'll be able to work on them there too!
Thanks for reading, as always!
