I’m really busy. Really busy. This time of the year brings not only an increase in temperature and birthdays, but also such unpleasant things as fiscal year ends which involves a lot of frenetic work. So I hope you’ll forgive me if this post is shorter than my usual monthly rambling.

Normally I start this post with stuff that is…

No Longer on the Work Table

But as you can see, I haven’t completed anything this month. Some things are close, and some a ways away so all can be seen in the stuff currently…

On the Work Table

1/144 RG MkII AEUG

This guy is almost done. I have weathered the white armor parts but need to pick up a light-grey or white Real Touch Marker in order to finish the dark armor. I first put a gloss coat on this guy to protect all the stickers but I am experiencing problems getting the Real Touch Markers to stick to the gloss-coat so what I have decided to do is flat-coat it once the first layer of weathering is done and then do a second layer and then a final top-coat.

But I’ve been spending more of my time Sonic Marasai.

Last month I wrote how I felt the MG Marasai reminded me of this fellow.

So my goal now is to try and create a Marasai that looks like Sonic the Hedgehog. Or is it create a Sonic that looks like a Marasai. I’m confusing myself. Here’s where I am at so far.

Sonic has some slender limbs so I knew the Marasai’s legs would have to go. For replacements I turned to this kit.

Yup, Char’s Zaku II 2.0. In the picture you’ll notice both the legs and arms have quite a few Zaku parts there, but I will save the details for when I write another WIP post. Needless to say, it’s about to get interesting.

With the Marasai the focus another kit has had to wait its turn. Again.

1/100 MG Full Armor Unicorn Gundam Ver.Ka
Ya. We are still at this stage.

All in good time.

Another kit I have been working on is the MG Blitz

So far just the torso and head are done but it’s looking pretty great so far. I’ve already thought of some modifications I want to try.

I’ve also got a test-built MG Infinite Justice sitting on my table so the review for that is on its way.

And last but not least.

Coming to the Work Table.

RG Justice Gundam
1/144 RG ZGMF-X09A Justice Gundam

I was (and still am) eager to get my hands on this kit. And then I saw this.

RG Justice De-active Mode!
Must have!

And when I saw that I also saw this!
RG RX-78-2 Gundam Ver. GFT
Bandai knows how to get me. Wiggle the old RG carrot in front of my face.

    Looking forward to that MG Infinite Justice review to make my week, good luck with your mods… on another note, used to love Justice but seeing the two kits one above the over gosh those proportions start to feel chubby even next to the Freedom or is it just me?

    • Silversky says:

      Its not just you, but that’s because the Justice pictured looks like the HG one rather than the RG one O:
