RG Destiny Gundam

Hi Guys,

I'm just checking with the photo settings, so far I'm satisfied with the outcome, only Facebook is fucking up with the sharpness of my posted photos there....

A few silver here and there

Only faced a few problems here such as the nubs are very near to some detailed parts.

Some intricate details are really amazing.

some scratches during my micro-grooving process.

And he is 70% combat ready.

RG Zaku II MS-06F WIP (As if the detailed parts are not enough)

Hi gang, it's been awhile since I been here, lot of things happening around me and I kinda neglecting this little hobby of mine. Of course there are other things for me to worry about for example, my girls are getting more and more interesting in what I do in my spare time. They would climb up my work chair and playing with the tools. A few thing I have to remember by myself are:

1. DO NOT put your tools everywhere on your work desk, put them back in after use.

2. Clean up your work desk after work.

3. Put all kits in the cabinet provided. (I need to buy another one when I get a new house)

4. If possible, make your own hobby room/office (LOL like that would happen)

Currently our BPG is making a GM vs. ZAKU group build which ends at August 24th 2013 and a lot of members in the group is taking part. So the participating individual get to choose which faction they want to be in, only GMs and ZAKUs are allowed. (From my own point of view, zaku theme expand throughout the SEED universe as well so that can be entered, as long as they have the word ZAKU in it.)

They can do OOBs or modify as much as they want in this GB. I'm also joining with my RG Zaku II. Everything went well at 1st, I wasn't thinking of going overboard with my build until my little angel came up to me with a missile pod and the Bazooka, stuck together with a blu-tack. It all went downhill from there.

 Beautiful little bugger.

 There was some extra bits and parts left in the RG runners, so I was thinking... Why the hell not.

 A little different from what I expected. Adding a pipe made from a corner runner bit does the job.

 Minimal plate works, still a long way to go.

 This was the hardest part, trying to make symmetrical lines.

 Here's the idea that started out in the first place. She put a blu-tack underneath and gave it to me.
"What a great twisted mind you have...."

So I jammed 3 plates together, made a rectangular hole for it to put through and it was easy peezy.

This is where I am now. Still finding more ideas on what I can do for the rest. I hope it won't be too late.

HGUC Byarlant Custom Snap works

Here's what I've been doing for the past couple of days, Just cleaning up nubs, a few paints, some little modifications and the usual stuff, enjoy!
The limit extend of the neck.
Kinda like Legilis in this unfinished form LoL
Just a few IC pins left. Where to get more ehh....
The flaming armpit starts here, I don't do much details except for the thrusters, because this part is going to be hidden.
The Round PC will be connected to the arm extension.
A few Kotobukiya parts
I painted these to indicate as a port and starboard signals, like in planes and ships.
I wonder where am I going to throw these in the Byarlant...
Oh here's what I got from Miri, pre-cut custom decals! Cheap too!
Anyone can guess what this is? hahaha...
A few dust to clean off.
Looks good from this angle.
Those pipes are tedious to work with!
There's your hand extensions

This kit is worth the value to get, quite hefty to work with, but it's a great kit nonetheless, I'm not going to do much yet on this because of the upcoming EACON and the organizer wants me to finish this as a showcase.

New Post Of The Year, A bit late now, doens't it?

Hello everybody and welcome back to my old rotting post of Gunpla-Addict, since the last time I was here the blogging post has become a memory of my single years and now I'm trying to get back into the blogging world where everything around me or what's happening in the future is going to be documented. That is to say, I'm going to post anything related to Plamo now and what my group, The Brunei Plamo Group is doing.

For now what I have lack behind I will get back up slowly and up to speed, with my new post of the day!

Introducing The HGUC Byarlant Custom, an awesome MS that appeared in Gundam Unicorn animation movie ep.4. This MS came out of a hangar and did a head count of 10+ before something happened to it (I didn't watch the movie yet, so I dunno :3) With all the internet buzzing around of whether this MS is going to be produced or not until Bandai successfully milking us (AGAIN!) with the production of this monster. And thanks to Mr. Shafie Rai, I waited patiently for 2 month actually, before he told me to come up to his office and get something (haha I was suspecting something).

 Beautiful box art
And now here's my snap work that I started last night. 

 here with my work, originally I wanted to build it as quickly as I can, suddenly, a wild silver marker appeared! Note the power conduit which was green (don't really approve of the color) is now silver! Along with silvery wash on the nooks and crannies of the panel lines.

 The vernier wing-span is well articulated, there are exhaust vents on both side, if any of you getting this, you might want to consider painting, me with my MALAS mode, I'd go for sticker.

 And again with the sticker works, unfortunately it was night time and I don't wanna wake my kids up with the spray works.

 This is the rear backpack vents, which was originally dark blue, and I went a little nuts at it again, with the silver paints.

Again with the silver power conduits at the back, I really wanted to show some realism in the details, with lack of references, this will do for now.

So there you have it folks, my 1st blogged post for this year I think, more to come and stay tuned, If I am lacking behind again, feel free to poke me on FB or make a surprise text, like I did with a certain Tsukinari Mugetsu, an ultimate summon magic in which he said to us in a chatroom "WHO TEXTED ME???" hahahahahahaha.... Oh well. Back to work~!

Basic Cementing Tutorial

Hey guys

It's been a while since I last posted, I made some simple cementing tutorial for my group, which is Brunei Plamo Group (still under construction) Feel free to comment if I do something wrong.

The cemented part, where you put cement from each side and clasp them
together to produce excess cement. Leave them for 24 hour for the cement to cure.

After 24 hour, I can start to file them... lightly.

Remember to check the surface after every stroke.

And stroke again

You can see the burrs forming on the side

you can cut off the excess cement with a craft knife too.

Wet sanding time~~ 400 grit abrasive paper ready.

Andd..... Start sanding.

Check the surface again

clean it up~

Here's My signature move~!! The nail buffer technique~

The black nail buffer grit has a smoother texture compared to 600 grit, 
so I'm satisfied with the result

Here' the finished result.

Now. prepped for painting/spraying

This is what I do to each and every parts that has nubs on it. Have fun trying it out~!
