and get right to the meat of things.
The RG GP-01 Zephyranthes is coming along really smoothly- the rest of the white parts have been primed and after that there’s some grays to paint up and then it’ll be finished! It’s a nice change of place as a simple recolor instead of something that requires a lot of time and money to be put in to it. I’m also working on the MG Banshee ver. Ka but as per the rules of hobbylink.tv’s contest I’m unable to post the WIP stuff here- you can see the updates here though. I’ll be working on the MG Full Armor Unicorn alongside it though, and I’ll make an update with pictures proper and you can just pretend it’s the Final Battle Banshee.
I finally got myself together and calibrated my camera, as well as changing some settings to get some cleaner pictures. This means we’ll be getting back to figure reviews in addition to being able to photoshoot models properly once they’re done. Of course, all of my other hobbies have kind of taken a slight back seat to Final Fantasy 14 but I’ll try to grind out these models with my time in the morning instead of pushing onwards to 50.
Continuing the trend of actually finishing models, the quickly built MG Astray Red/Blue Frame combination now has it’s own page in the completed projects section! I really like the way this kit turned out and even more how quickly it went from start to finish.
We’ve still got a few more models that I’ve finished recently to go up, with the photoshoot for Exousia Astraea finished up and the Zaku trio still waiting for their time in the spotlight.
The new version of the PG Strike Freedom now has it’s own page! While there isn’t a lot of variety in the poses for this monstrous PG kit, I’m sure you guys will understand since I want to make sure I don’t scratch any of that chromed purple paint!
I’ve got the page for the Hayabusa Astray in the works, as well as an absolutely giant photo review of the Riobot Gurren Lagann which is mostly finished. If I remember to work on it you can probably expect to see pages for both the kit and the figure go up some time this week.
And these are just the teaser shots! As you can see, my lightbox isn’t big enough to accommodate this beast so I’m going to have to make something more sizable to properly photograph the absolutely gigantic wingspan of this kit. The custom base is still planned out, I haven’t started it yet due to work screwing up my paycheck and missing an entire day of pay. Overall I am MUCH happier with this PG SF build than the original rendition, my attention to detail was much better this time around and that’s reflected in the quality of the paintjob as well as the small touches like the pistons and painted whites. But this isn’t all I’ve been plugging away at in the last few months!
The Hayabusa Astray turned out great! I got a little feedback from some folks that led to some changes in the chrome and gloss black distribution and I think those changes made a good kit turn out even better. The TA turned out really awesome too, despite not painting the handle and other gunmetal bits. Titanium gold and pale gold came together nicely and while the weapon is flashy as hell compared to the rest of the ‘silent’ kit but considering the weapon itself is pretty loud due to it’s size I think it works alright.
Next up is repairing and finishing PG Wing Zero Custom! There’s a few bits I need to replace and I need to rewire the LEDs for the chest and get these rifles all wrapped up. The battery holders I got were too loarge to fit inside the rifles so it’s back to the drawing board for that.
Also incoming: the completed Zaku II squad. Sinanju has a few more parts before I start the decal hell on it, it’s a commission that I’ve only been working on for two days right now. The final finish will be flat but as well all know loss coats are important for doing work with waterslides. The Astray is awaiting Alclad II paint to arrive so I can finish the Tactical arms. The Asrtaea has one little bit left to attach to it to give it the full 7 Sword loadout that Exia lineage suits ought to have.
The Zaku IIs are finished, I just need to get them out of the box and snap a few pictures. Working third shift at work now means I spend a lot of the daytime sleeping however.
‘Til next time!
