And the struggle to reduce my Gunpla backlog continues! I’ve just finished assembling the MG Crossbone Gundam X-1. It’s the pirate Gundam and it’s very cool. Things to consider with this model: No poly caps! Cool since models are meant to be posed and not played with. The F91 is the same way. It’s very […]
I’ve been trying to catch up on my back log of Gunpla and I assembled the MG Gyan. As master grades go, it was “Eh”. The build was not particularly difficult and there were not many surprises. It’s a heavy model and posing it is difficult. The shield is huge. If I wanted to pose […]
Moving on to the MG Gyan now.
“Can you please build my legs now?” The Master Grade RX-78-2 version 2.0 is coming along nicely. Bandai keeps improving on it’s model designs and this one is easy to build. Compared to the version 1.5 it’s a joy. Once I’ve completed it I’ll take a picture of it next to the version 2.0 of […]
I’m just asking.
I finished Char’s Zaku II version 2.0. I’ll post better pictures on Flickr today. These newer MGs from Bandai keep getting better and better. The joints are very articulate and the whole model is very posable.
My son completed another model. This time the 1/200 Speed Grade Wing Gundam. I have to slow him down or we’ll run out of models for him to work on. This one is his third model this week. It’s great seeing him concentrate on the parts and following directions. He gets very focused on what […]
I’ve picked up on making the Zaku II version 2.0 again and have completed the torso and head. It’s a good model and when I have it complete I’ll put the old 1995 version next to the 2007 version for comparisons. My kids love watching me build these. I have some left in the basement […]
I’ve picked up watching Gundam 00 Season 2 and the going is slow. I know it’s only the third episode but it’s really reminding me of Zeta Gundam. That’s probably an overreaction but if a Camille Biden clone shows up then I’m walking away from the series. The other show I’m starting is Ga Rei […]
The second season of Gundam 00 has begun. No huge surprises yet but this season seems to be imitating Zeta Gundam more and more. I’m pretty sure we’ve just met the group that will be this series Titans. I wonder how long it will be before Bandai produces a Master Grade 1/100 scale version of […]
