God Gundam, Zeta Gundam and Hyaku-Shiki reviews up on the MG page…I’m almost caught up, three more to go before I can start building the other kits I have!

Due to the marked lack of action around here, Here’s a picture of the ever reliable gunpla shelf (click for high resolution). I think the majority them have a post about them and if they don’t it’s something I’m working on fixing. You can also see that Nu is close to being finished! Then it’s just a matter of time until Sword Impulse. Will probably make a WIP post for Nu tomorrow to show most of the construction.
Finally got around to finishing off the weapons about an hour ago and snapping some pictures (along with the Hyaku-Shiki). More after the jump.
Hyaku-Shiki is finished, I didn’t take many pictures while building since there really wasn’t anything special going on there. It’s a really nice kit considering it’s age but you can see how old it is with how many polycaps are used to for his joints and how simple it is overall (I managed to get it done in about four hours). Also, maybe it’s just me but it seems like the plastic is super brittle, though this isn’t really a big deal since it doesn’t have much impact on the actual model. The gold finish on the HD version doesn’t look bad at all but for the record if you happen to use a gundam marker on the kit to cover up a clip mark or hide a seem you had best get it right on the first try since when you wipe the paint away the finish comes with it. Aside from that, not much to mention except for the hinged hands. They have a nice solid grip on the weapons which is great considering the way the hands were made for older MGs was really annoying and not that much better than your HG design.
The HD decals were basically worthless and I gave up on them after two of them floated away off the backing after 20 seconds in water. I had no issues with the normals ones however, so the signature markings on his shoulders remain.
He poses good and I’ll take pictures eventually, but for now I’ve already started working on the White Unicorn Zeta (Currently have the upper body done, working on the lower waist- have been taking pictures so far, hopefully I remember the whole time) so you’ll have to settle with some stock shots.
I think we have a bit of a backlog now. Not as huge as some, but still.
