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.
I’m beginning to believe that the regular decals that come with the MG Zaku II’s are just advertising for the water slide version. The decals are okay, but they are tiny. Next up: I’m going to detail and apply water slide decals to my MG Gouf v2.0.
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.
I’ve assembled and detailed up to the right leg. This is the second MG Zaku II I’ve built and I’m enjoying this one. Once the assembly is complete, I’ll clean up the detailing and apply the decals.
This is my work in progress photo of the MG MS-06J Zaku II “White Ogre” version. It’s hard to see them but did you notice the panel lines? One of my friends on Flickr is a gentleman by the name of Franklin Andrade who also builds Gundam models as well. You can see some of […]
Here’s something I don’t do everyday. The boxes are from Gunpla that I already assembled. I keep a closet of the models I plan on building as well as the instructions and spare parts from the models I have already put together. Below is my current list of unassembled models. I used HobbyLink Japan for […]
This was a very straight forward m0del to assemble. No trouble at all and the articulation is very good. With earlier Master Grade models, there was frequently a gotcha. But with these more current versions, it’s all straight forward. I usually do one or two back to back and the next model I have lined […]
It’s official. The MG Gouf version 2.0 is awesome. There have been hardly any surprises and I can’t find anything that demands gluing. Tomorrow I’ll complete the back pack cables and start the arms.
I’ve started building the 1/100 MG Gouf 2.0. So far so good, once again I am trying to slim down on my Gunpla stash. I’ve only completed the first 2 parts (torso and head) but it’s a very different model than the original MG Gouf. As I usually do, I’ll post photos once it’s done.
All done. The weight of this GNHW/R version demands a stand but for now I’ll just leave it standing. Next one up is something completely different. I purchased the HG D-50C Loto twin set for my son, so to be fair I got two Hoi-Hoi san models for my girl. I’ll work on one of […]
