Dear winter,

You suck.

Still out of sorts, so I haven’t been doing much lately. V-Dash has a few pictures taken, but to be honest the kit itself is one of those that is great to work on but when it comes to posing and photos there’s only so much you can do especially if you don’t want to damage the paint or anything. I’ll try to have the page done soonish, sill.

ReZEL is coming along now, it’s time to start masking areas off to paint the blue accents and work on the backpack and weapons.

The Astraea kitbash has become a monster of it’s own. I think I’ve finally hit the point where it’s time to start puttying all the parts together and painting things. For the curious, the total sword count is 19 blades. In other gunpla news, I wound up with the RG Zaku II and MG Red Frame after going to Ohayocon this weekend…so much for not buying more kits. This must be how busterbeam feels.

    Okay now the Astraea looks ridiculous with all the swords D:

    LOVING the REZEL!
    Looks very nice, the white with red accents look like Keita’s Master Grade Strike Freedom! Very cool!
    A bit curious on the blue and masking, will you make it like GaiGuns Delta Plus? Or Symmetrical?
    I personally like it right now, but it may seem bland to others…

    Something like the Karaba Zeta (Which is in the completed projects page!) but I’ll probably do something asymmetrical for it.

    Lupes, add one more! c’mon! Just one more somewhere and make it 20! 20>19! You can do it! haha.

    Looking forward to your V-Dash review; curious about what you think of it as I still have one lying around.

    And I’m digging your ReZEL too. Especially the orange sensor parts. Don’t let me beat you to completion of mine though :).

    Ah why not just go for the GFF pose 😛 Your V dash looks really good for that! I know what you meant by problems posing painted kits…just hate it when it gets scratch!!!

    Love that purple on the V-dash, the paint looks like it went on incredibly smooth. Talk about another convincing argument to switch from cans to an AB…

    And wow at all those swords. I agree with Z, go for the even 20!

    @Z: You’re on for the ReZEL…it’s a challenge! I’m masking the parts for blue as we speak and I’ll be painting them (along with Astraea’s) tomorrow! V-Dash is a great kit, even if you’re leaving it in the powerful GFF stance.

    @Chubby: I should! But since it comes with so many different weapons I definitely want to try to showcase them.

    @Rob: It has one hand free still, so I could hypothetically use the original GN Sword even though I’m really not a huge fan of how it looks over the GN Sword III…but I’m not buying another 00 Raiser with it when I have one already for normal purposes.

    That Astraea is epic! A little overkill perhaps, but when you’re talking about a giant machine designed exclusively for war overkill might be just what you need.

    “War overkill” sums it up nicely. I almsot got two GN Full Sabers instead, but the sword fangs are entertaining thanks to the variety.

    The only words I can say for the Astraea is … wow, that’s a lot of swords. But you can add one more, like Z says.

    The ReZEL is looking good. I’m wondering how would blue affect this current color scheme.

    the monster lacking GN Sword III.
    thats all it need.

    Whoa white ReZel, that’s nice fresh color combination you have there dude. 😀
    Any plan to decal it?
