MSIA MS-07B Gouf

October 1, 2009

On sunday, I suddenly aqquired a Gouf. A cute little figure. My second premade Mobile Suit. First being my HCM Zaku. This Gouf, I first thought it was a little smaller than 1/144. But my Zaku Warrior Concert version is pretty much the same height as the Gouf, so I wonder what scale it is lol.

Love that sword.

Love that sword.

As figures go, it is properly lovely, not sure I could ever get one looking like this. My Sniper Zaku is probably the closest I’ve come so far lol. Awesome finish, brilliant posability, which I will demonstrate later in the post lol.

Gundam Markers GET!

Sieg Zeon!!

Sieg Zeon!!

Last week I ordered me some Gundam Markers, the Zeon set from Gundam Mad*, seeing as Zeon’s rock most, obviously lol. And I gots em today! :woop!: When I looked to see what kinda nib it was I was like, ‘uwhaaaa?’ and had no clue what to do with em lol. But then I remembered the guide thing I found here, on Chubbybots blog. His tutorial on removing the nubs is brilliant too. Helped me no end. Though I still need to get some Tamiya Polishing Compound, no worries though, since I know where I can buy it online lol, since its illegal here hehe. More below the cut!! Go on, you know you want to!! lol

Tamiya Gets

September 6, 2009

materials

I went to a hobby shop situated right in the middle of Snetterton Market, Snetterton Park Model Shop. Its bloody huge! I wandered around for a bit before I found the stuff I wanted, was just to the left round the corner of the entrance. LOTS of Tamiya stuff, had every Tamiya Weathering set available! They had Tamiya sandpaper stuff too, I think it might be for use when wet… since its all in Japanese I can’t tell lol. The can of varnish I got yesterday, its matt finish and meant for plastic modelling, so it should be fine, but I’ll test it on a something to be sure.

Pricewise the weathering stuff was more expensive than it was on ebay or other places, but since I didn’t have to wait for shipping, its better, and worth the money. The varnish was £4-something, I still need the Tamiya Polishing Compound, BUT I found out thats illegal in Europe lol, apparantly we’re the only country thats stopped selling it though, rest of Europe still does. The UK’s such a goody-two-shoes…. Can still import though, not the end of the world.

1/144 MS-05L Zaku I Sniper Type

September 5, 2009

This Zaku is my 4th gunpla kit!! And after looking at guides, and how-to stuff, I went as all out as I could at this time, (since I can’t get ahold of any weathering stuff where I live, have to order online, same for polishing compound, though I’ve been told, something called ‘Brasso’ will do ok on plastic, but I don’t think it’d do the same thing I want that I’ve seen in guides.

Anyways, this is the final product so far, I wanna get some Tamiya weathering stuff to make her look extra funky. Not sure if its a she or he yet… I mean… it does have a skirt lol… but it has a bigass gun to make up for the femininity lol. Its about 13cm tall, I think its a bit shorter than my 1/144 Gelgoog, but just as cool. Still like Gelgoog more. Now I need a Char’s Zaku.. pink ftw!!

Oh, and atm, I’ve got the tubing on the backpack stuck in the holes with whitetack, since it didnt seem to wanna stay put on its own, same for the antenna. Posted these pics on figure.fm too. Spreading the love! lol

My desk is a total mess... currently using my computer on my bed.

1/200 HCM Pro Zaku Warrior

August 30, 2009

My little loot from my trip to Norwich on saturday. And technically I only bought Zaku, cos ‘Cat Paradise’ was in a 3 for 2 offer in Waterstones, and my brother was buying Haruhi manga(I did warn him it ain’t the same though…) I thought £6.95 was a bit much, but the Japanese packaging was too much to pass up, I woulda bought any of the Mobile Suits, was very much an impulse buy. But I recently found out I am, what you’d call, a Zeonist, a fan of the 1-eyed Mobile Suits, Gelgoog, Zaku, Dom’s(whatever Dom’s are… will have to search that lol). 1500 yen on HLJ. Still in stock atm lol, released in 2005 originally.

loot

An itty-bitty gundam! So very tiny at just 9cm in height! About the same height as a Nendoroid, tiny bit shorter me thinks. More past the cut!
