Working on the MG RX-78-2 ver 2.0

“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 […]

Yep, that’s the deal with my son

This is the HG Hy-gogg I just built. I have been catching up on my Gunpla stash lately because of a deal I made with my 7 year old son. When he’s extra good in school he gets to build a model with me. He’s been extra good for the last 4 school day so […]

Finished Char’s MG Zaku II ver 2.0

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.

Speed Grade Wing Gundam

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 […]

First model my son built

My soon to be 7 year old son is fascinated whenever I build a model.  He really enjoys just watching me and examining the parts I put together. It’s part of that whole son dad thing and I like him watching me too. His school teacher wants him to work on things that have  step […]

Zaku II version 2.0

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 […]

More HG Gundams

When I can I like to work on my Gundam models.  It’s a hobby and it’s not computer related so that makes it a good thing.   Both my kids enjoy watching me assemble the models and as an added bonus I build some just for them.  They get to keep the models I make for […]

HG Gundam Exia assembled

Just finished assembling the HG Gundam Exia. It’s good and when the weather is warmer I’ll probably paint it. Except for the shoulders, the whole thing breaks up for easy painting. The Exia was built right after the HG Shiranui Akatsuki Gundam was completed. Here is a picture of the completed model: Behind it are […]
