Mobile Suit Builders

  • Applying my painting screw up lessons heavily during my current build, because I'll be devastated if I screw this one up.

  • Now with LED unit installed XD
    Yep wrong light color LOL

  • Of course the Landman Rodi is part of an expensive P-Bandai set... alt text

  • @Minamik I think there's an upcoming kit that bundle Landman Rodi with Geirail

    hmmm... can you make a pre-order Pbandai kits from your local store? from what I understand, this is how you get Pbandai kits without having to pay extra(but yeah the kit you shown was past the pre-order period now)

  • @WickedPony They came out with a parts set which includes the legs/feet you can just put on the Man Rodi to turn it into the Landman Rodi. I'd rather do that and paint it, then buy some expsensive kit with stuff I don't want, lol.

    Besides, I have a list a mile long of stuff I want to build.

    All panel lined and decals up :)

  • I find most suit design in SEED boring but Providence is one mean-looking mobile suit

  • @WickedPony Yeah, that's a pretty cool backpack there! I wish I had more to show, but lately its been so cold, I can't really do any painting on anything. I've got a ton of ideas though, haha.

  • Took 2 months to finish this, cause I wanted to show it off on the Gundam stream, but here we have Omegamon (Omnimon) from Digimon.

  • @Minamik
    I missed the stream ;3; (it's 3 AM where I live)
    How do you send the image to Kyle on the stream by the way?

  • @WickedPony You just tweet it to @ easyallies, but I'm not sure unless it's done during the stream whether they'd show it or not.

  • With a recently deposited tax return and nicer weather, hopefully, on the way, it's time to get back into model building season, my friends! I've got 2 kits on order that I'm pretty excited about. One of them is from Gundam, and the other is from a game series that never really took off in the west.

  • The model is a few years off from the Bluebird Zenigata had in Castle of Cagliostro, but it's the closest I could find.

    Lupin the III: Project 2. Coming soon. Zenigata custom ICPO Bluebird!

  • Hey, kiddos! Amateur Gundam Building streams are back, and so are we. Here's what I've been working on. I dug some clay from our yard and made a cat figure, but then I decided to try and paint it to look like Kuro Nyanko-Sensei (from Natsume Yuujinchou). It was going well till I got to the face, lol. And my current gunpla project is the MW-01 Mobile Worker from Gundam the Origins. Loose parts so I can take it apart to paint when I'm ready.

  • So, one of the problems I've been running across has been with using the Tamiya panel wash over gloss coated parts. I read the other day that enamel does best over acrylic, but it seems that there aren't very many options out there for an acrylic top coat that comes in a rattle can. Cue Google. A few days later, and now I have a bottle of Pledge floor polish and a can of Mod Podge Acrylic Sealer.

    I've painted the shield from my ancient Wing Gundam in the same scheme as what I'm planning for my model, and gave it a coat of Mod Podge. Here's hoping it solves the problem.

  • Pretty satisfied with how the panel wash worked with the mod podge spray. I think any smudging you might see is cause I didn't give it enough time to dry. Next test is water slide decals, sealed with pledge, and then covered with matte spray.alt text
