HG Char’s Zaku II Origin Version

Last weekend I completed assembling a 1/144 scale Zaku II model and today I quickly detailed and applies some decals. Here’s some photos of the completed model.

It’s a nice Zaku II. I’ll build a Master Grade model next.

Another Char’s Zaku II model

I completed the assembly of the HG Char’s Zaku II (Origin version). It came out OK and the parts have a lot of detail. It’s a 1/144 scale version and didn’t take long to put together.

The next thing I’ll do is add detail lines and the decals.

The new Press This in WordPress 4.2 beta 2 is slick

Try this: update to WordPress 4.2 beta 2 and drag the “Press This” to your bookmark bar. Visit a URL that you like and poof.

I just did that on a Flickr photo and I was able to select the image from the options and below is the result.

The post is complete with a source link for attribution. I added some categories and saved as a draft. The whole update to Press This really is well done. It’s more attractive and easier than ever.

Slowly but surely, the White Ogre is a WIP

And now back to our regular scheduled feature.

I’ve been busy and have not had much time to spend on this Master Grade Zaku II. Yesterday and today I finished assembling the legs.

Now I’m cleaning up the detailing so I can apply the decals.

1/1 scale Hoi Hoi-san model

All done.

This one was good, but the hair ruins the balance of the whole model. Also I may glue some of the hair pieces. They fall off if you look at it too closely.

I’m not sure which model I’ll pickup next. It’s a toss-up between the heavy arms version or another Gundam model.

Hoi Hoi San WIP

Not my usual type of model.

This is the work in progress picture for the 1/1 scale Hoi Hoi-san model. It’s for my 6 year old girl. To make sure that it all works out, I’m gluing the pieces together when appropriate. The head will have interchangeable faces so I need to remember to NOT glue those parts together.

Completed MG Gundam Exia

Gundam RX-78-2? Meet Gundam Exia.

That was a tough model to assemble. I started this model August 23rd and I just couldn’t really make the time to put it together. When I assembled the MG Char’s Zaku 2.0 I had less trouble.

The MG Exia is finicky and it’s flexibility is what makes it tough to keep in a pose. Now that it’s completed, I need to spray it with air and get off all the plastic dust. I was thinking of gluing the hip/leg ball joint (it comes apart if you move it around) but I’ll probably clean off the model and put it on the shelf.

For my next couple of kits I’ll be building HG Gundam 00 1/144 models. That’ll give me a break while reducing my Gunpla stash.
