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.
The second figure review I’ve managed to finish, D-Arts Zero [Type Two] has a page now! Considering I own all of the regular release D-Arts Megaman X figures you can expect to see X, Full Armor X and Type One Zero at some point or another. A few of the pictures (Including the one used above) are from before I had my set-up as solid as I do now, but the pictures themselves I liked a lot so I used them anyway.
For those of you who don’t care about figures, Astraea’s photoshoot is underway. I had to fix the part that the Full Saber attaches to since the weight pulled the thin cement loose. I used milliput this time around so the bond should be a lot more solid.
Ex-oo-see’-ah: the power of authority (influence) and of right (privilege)
Of course, that’s the 3rd definition from the Greek lexicon but whatever. Flows with what I did with this kit very well I think. Twin drives and some of the most potent 00-era melee weapons. The name suits it, especially once I add the GN Full Saber to the opposite shoulder. I think this kit has come a really long way from where it was when I first came up with this idea and I mean that in the best possible way. Also…
In lieu of a few changes recently, I finally bit the bullet and built myself a lightbox and went the extra mile to make it PG-sized. I might run in to issues with posing the SFs wings up…but more on that when the time comes. Additionally, I’ve started taking pictures for some figure reviews, including but not limited to…
- D-Arts Zero [Type 2], Full Armor X, X, Zero [Type 1]
- Armor Plus Ronin Warriors/Samurai Troopers [Ryo, Shi, Seiji, Touma, Inferno Armor]
- SRC GaoGaiGar [w/ Key to Victory sets 1 & 2]
And if that wasn’t enough, we’ve got two commissions coming up! One will be starting at the end of this week and once it arrives you’ll see what it is. I also got a few goodies from GG Infinite and good friend Gaijin-Gunpla for a few extra side projects but we’re gonna wrap up what’s on the burner now that we have a good head of steam.
I figured out how to attach the GN Buster Sword and GN Full Saber while maintaining the new slim profile, so expect to see that once I finish painting the weapons up. The blue is a mix of Mr. Color Phthalo (how the shit do you say that?) Cyanne Blue and black, mixed about a 80% blue 20% black ratio. The end result is a very nice color that looks black under normal circumstances but when put by a light source shows it’s blue undertone.
You’ll also be seeing two commission projects here shortly. More on those when the kits arrive and I get started on them.
Firstly, 00’s page is done! I love the color black.
Secondly, I have a bit of sad news. I’m going to be moving next week…which means that I’m not going to be able to build any gunpla for awhile since I can’t buy kits, paint or any of the extra stuff that now comes along with the art of building these wonderful things. I know I have a few more pages to type up, but I’ve already started to prepare for the move and have packed up the majority of my stuff, including my kits and tools and moved them in to the new place so I can’t even take pictures right now. This is by no means the end of IAG!, since I still have pages and whatnot to do…but there will not be much by way of new content until I make sure everything is stable after the move since as you gents well know, real life takes priority.
Stay classy until then, ladies and gentlemen!
Taken from this awesome gallery, where more pictures are available. Looks like while the GN Drive things themselves don’t rotate, the Raiser wings can, in fact, move. I’m very happy to see this and have to see the finished kit is looking better now, enough that I might considering picking it up some time down the road.
