Gaijin Gunpla

Things seem to have picked up as Golden Week approached. With the better weather things are getting painted and topcoated in preparation for decals while other things are in the middle of their build and new kits were popping up all over the place. Let’s recap where I’m at so far.

No Longer on the Work Table

1/100 MG Gundam AGE-1 Normal

I painted the red and blue on this kit with Tamiya’s red and blue and the yellow was changed to Brilliant Orange. After that all I did was panel line with marker and put on the dry transfers and stickers. And it looks awesome! Check out the gallery here and the WIP here.

That’s all I have to show for a completed project this month, but this next part is going to be pretty large.

On the Work Table but Tucked in a Corner Out of the Way (Not under the Work Table, though)…

1/100 MG Duel Gundam Assault Shroud

The Review is finally finished and Duel Gundam is back in his box awaiting some time and a little bit more inspiration. I know one modification I definitely will do but the color scheme has yet to be decided upon.

1/100 MG Full Armor Unicorn Gundam Ver.Ka

The Zebracorn is still a go and more has been done, though I have yet to post it. However, recent arrivals have pushed this guy out of the way for now.

1/100 MG Gundam AGE-1 Titus

This guy is also being infringed upon by new, cool stuff. I have the color scheme for this in mind but I think I’ll be adding panel lines and some things so I have to plan those.

1/100 MG Crossbone Gundam X-1 Ver. Ka

This guy is going to have to wait a little longer like the others. To be honest, I don’t see myself coming back to it for some time. Whenever I start thinking of mods and painting schemes the Crossbone isn’t at the top of the list.

Now back to your regularly scheduled…

On the Work Table
1/100 MG RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee

The Banshee decaling is underway. This is going to take some time. I finished the first session the other night (2 and a half hours) and I’ll be doing another one tomorrow. I think it will take three sessions. It’s been fun so far (I have a twisted sense of fun).

MG MS-06K Zaku Cannon

The build has been a bit of a trip through the past and I’ve enjoyed it. The future for this thing, though, has me apprehensive. I’m undecided as to how to approach it. Focus 100% of my efforts on it until its done, or work on it a small bit at a time so as not to burn myself out? I want to do it right.

A recent arrival to the Work Table is the newest Real Grade kit!
1/144 RG RX-178 Gundam Mk-II Titans Version
The Titans was delayed by a day but the AEUG version is delayed for a couple of weeks while they sort out an issue of some kind. That threw a monkey wrench into my plans a bit. I wanted to build them and review them at the same time. Well, I’m adaptable. So far…

it’s amazing! I did, however, make a quite sizable error when building this frame. I’ll talk about that and the solution when I write the first RG Titans WIP post.

And a recent arrival made its way onto my Work Table.

This is a bit of a sneak peak because I’m not supposed to officially write anything for a couple of days but I thought my loyal readers deserved to see it, if only a glimpse.

Now let’s look into the not-so-distant future.

Coming to the Work Table

1/144 RG RX-178 Gundam Mk-II AEUG Version

See above.

I’m not really hyped for the stuff coming in May. The MG Marasai has been looking good in test shots as has the HG M1 Astray which might be the only HG I’ve been keeping my eye on. Maybe it’s a good thing that I won’t be getting much new stuff in May. I’ve already got plenty to work on. How’s everyone else doing?

    plenty to work on is an understatement lol, the zebracorn is intriguing lol

    ON my work bench: is a koto HMM gun sniper leena special, so much detail, so much fun and parts of the full armour unicorn as i started it before putting it aside whilst waiting wire for leds but bits of it are still getting paint etc when the gun sniper is drying etc

    Under the work bench is a SD astray red frame and a NG cheridum both havent been started but have been deboxed and looked at 😛

    Completed recently: Battle Damaged SD kshatriya with LED 😀

  6. OJ says:

    Makes me feel much better knowing that I’m not the only one with multiple projects on the go. Currently working on Duel, Sinanju, Greifer and Gouf Custom (all MG) and PG Skygrasper.

  7. Jeff says:

    The HG Nu Gundam is amazing. Did you get the regular or the full armor version? Only issue I’ve had with the kit is getting the head on and the little v sticker on the crotch.

    I’ve just finished decaling my MG Sandrock EW, just have topcoat to go.

    Up next (more Wing nostalgia) is the MG Heavyarms EW, MG Deathscythe Hell EW, MG Epyon EW (which I’m most excited about).

    After that, under my table I’ve got the MG Titus (think I’ll try my hand at custom painting), RG Aile Strike and HGUC Sinanju.

  10. Mark says:

    OH god, the Hi-nu gundam!!! Can’t wait to see the review!!

  11. Sonar says:

    More info on this Nu Gundam pls 😉

  12. Skyshadow says:

    Wasn’t the mistake on the decals? Where they put AUGE instead of AEUG?

  13. Ben says:

    My work table is stuck on the PG Skygrasper, I’m finding no love in building the thing though I’d rather experiment and be done with this thing before getting to the other kits that I have yet to build including 4-5 hg age kits, MG age-1, heavyarms,etc…

  14. Sneaky says:

    Umm…excuse me but what sneak peak? isn’t that the good old regular HGUC nu gundam? i can’t see any difference? why can’t you write about it? or were you talking about RG justice gundam? too many questions? ok i’ll stop here.Keep it up.

      Hi Sneaky,

      It’s a sneak peak because I promised someone I wouldn’t write about it in detail until a certain date. Soon all will be revealed.

    Just saw that you are doing the Infinite Justice for GunplaTV. Will you be doing a WIP on it on here?
