[MG] MBF-02+EW454F Strike Rouge+Ootori Ver RM Part 02

*Pls note that I don't do real time posting in this blog.. Whatever I had done for the day are all being consolidated and one shot post all at the end of the day. Thanks!*

I still had a bit of time to build Strike Rouge after building RG Strike Freedom. So might as well do a bit of it and then call it a day lol..

[RG] ZGMF-X20A Strike Freedom Gundam Part 02

Here I am, starting to build up this wonderful kit lol... I'm doing half fully plated parts while the other half are inner frames exposed. I will be covering them up soon along with it's weapons and the wings.

[HG] D-50C Loto Twin Set E.F.S.F. Special Operations MS Part 01

While I was watching the Unicorn Gundam anime, I noticed the Loto that can transform from a mobile suit to tank mode. As I was once (3 years ago) served in the Armor unit in Singapore Armed Forces (SAF), our unit was the first unit that has the newest tank which is called the "Leopard" tank. It is a Main Battle Tank (MBT) for our unit.

So back to the topic, I was wondering to myself how awesome the leopard tanks it can be if they can transform like the Loto. So here I got myself a HG Loto twin set kit, and did some slight color modification to closely match the color of the Leopard tank. I took this chance to do spray painting while I was spray painting my remaining parts from my competition kit at my school, which is my workplace. It's Saturday today so by rights I'm not working but only came back just to fully focus on my kits without disturbance lol...

[RG] ZGMF-X20A Strike Freedom Gundam Part 01

Yup.. I'm so gonna build this and Strike Rouge concurrently haha... This is the first time I tried my hands on a RG kit, with Strike Freedom being the first kit to attempt lol...

I just build up it's inner frame, and I already felt the excitement already lol!

[MG] MBF-02+EW454F Strike Rouge+Ootori Ver RM Part 01

I know I just gotten the RG Strike Freedom, but since I already started this, I will work on this first lol... But I might consider building both concurrently... (I still have a Lotto kit to settle, and not to mention my competition entry kit lol...)

This kit is also a recently released MG kit by Bandai. It's a remastered version that is specially made for their latest Gundam SEED Destiny HD Remaster version.

Latest Arrival from HLJ

The package just reached my home, and it's also partly for my friends' presents, and one for me lol..

This features RG Strike Freedom, the latest kit released for the RG line! This is my first time building RG kits so I'm trying it out. If it turns out great, I will get the RG Destiny kit too lol...

[MG] AMX-004-2 Qubeley Mk-II Neo Zeon Elpeo Ple's Mobile Suit Part 03

Coming to the end of building Qubeley lol... And I attempted to apply the dry transfer decals onto it, seeing that the decal details were so cute lol...

[MG] AMX-004-2 Qubeley Mk-II Neo Zeon Elpeo Ple's Mobile Suit Part 02

Project 'White Angel of Purity' is still ongoing, but I managed to squeeze in some time to continue building Qubeley and completed it's arms and legs lol

[MG] AMX-004-2 Qubeley Mk-II Neo Zeon Elpeo Ple's Mobile Suit Part 01

I have been eyeing this kit for quite some time, and I finally made the decision to buy it from HLJ. I'm not sure why, but I like design alot lol

[MG] XXXG-00W0 Wing Gundam Proto Zero Mobile Suit Part 02

Yup... I wasn't expecting this kit to be able to completed in half a day lol... So I take this bit of time to do some poses, something which I didn't really do it for quite long time lol...

[MG] XXXG-00W0 Wing Gundam Proto Zero Mobile Suit Part 01

This kit is the recent new release from Bandai, and it is said to be different from all other Wing Gundam kits that they currently have, which is true by the way lol... I was having mixed feelings about getting this kit cos the colors seems too... colorful???

Anyway, I still ended up getting this as me and my colleague were at the hobby shop picking xmas presents for us to exchange. Why we do it early? Cos my colleague couldn't attend our gather in December as he will be on overseas trip during that period. So he chose the Strike Rouge Ootori (which I paid for it) and I chose this Wing Gundam Proto Zero (which he paid for it).

[MG] RX-93 Nu Gundam Ver. Ka Amuro Ray Cusomize MS for NewType Part 04

Wrapping up whatever parts that are left for Nu Gundam...

[MG] RX-93 Nu Gundam Ver. Ka Amuro Ray Cusomize MS for NewType Part 03

The pyscho frame parts are a real killer... Not only they are small, it require you to apply small silver foil stickers at various parts... Really need a lot more focus on that portion...

23rd November 2013 Afternoon:

See both sides and top, really need to place those stickers carefully...

[MG] RX-93 Nu Gundam Ver. Ka Amuro Ray Cusomize MS for NewType Part 02

Continuing to build the Nu gundam, and I realized that it's pyscho frame parts are really challenging than I expected it to be...

All pyscho frame parts are hidden for now, I will show them once I completed it.

23rd Nov 2013 Morning:

Gunpla Green LED Unit

I bought this for kits that are able to fit these in for the lighting gimmick.. You might have seen it on PG Strike Freedom and MG Jesta have lighted up eyes. Some of the next upcoming kits like Nu Gundam, Exia and 00 Raiser are able to fit those LED units in.

I'm getting the batteries for those LED units so once I have those I can do the lighting gimmick on Nu Gundam which I'm currently building XD

Cost is 880 yen, which is around $11 in SGD. But I wouldn't suggest you to buy this online alone. If you're buying through HLJ you might consider package it together with your other kits so that the shipping fee wouldn't be much of a burden for you.

I'm so excited that this kit is coming out soon, 3 more weeks to 14th December 2013! XD

Edit: Just to add on here, with the release of Unicorn Gundam UC movie set to release in May 2014, Bandai is also releasing more new kits and that includes the HGUC Kshatriya Repaired!

Watch the Gunpla TV by Hobby Link TV

Images of Kshatriya Repaired from Gundam guy's blog post

Just a side note to add on here. I have also bought the RG Strike Freedom and is currently stored in HLJ's private warehouse. This is technically my first time building a RG kit so I will probably enjoy building it should I able to handle it carefully lol... I'm placing it in the Private Warehouse for now as I'm still waiting for HLJ to release the Nendoroid Iron Man Mk 42 Heros Edition (with Hall of Armor). This is the last xmas gift for another fren of mine so I really hope that they can release it on time before our gathering in 2 weeks time..

So once it's in, I will be shipping that and the RG Strike Freedom too =)

[MG] RX-93 Nu Gundam Ver. Ka Amuro Ray Cusomize MS for NewType Part 01

Finally exams are over and I'm back on building more Gunpla kits!!!

But unfortunately I didn't have much spare time yesterday and today so I only did managed to spray paint the yellow parts into gold instead. I'm temporary KIV-ing the rest of the spray painting and probably save it for titanium finish version instead.

[SD] BB RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 01

This should be by far the longest time I took to complete it... Although on the overall it took 2 hours, the gap between 2 hours were almost a week. Well.. I was revising for my exams and a few times I don't feel like doing anything these past few days so I didn't really touch it... But hey, I could relieve some stress by finishing it and case it up with my MG Unicorn =)

[MG] RGM-96X Jesta E.F.S.F. Special Operations Mobile Suit - Pre-Examination "Warm Up"

Exams are coming and it's kinda tough especially if you are working and studying at the same time. Luckily I have this kit to de-stress myself when revision study gets too intense lol... Build finish a part and get back to study, and then repeat the same process until the kit is complete lol...

Here's something special about this kit. It might looks like some ordinary Federation MS but the this kit can actually housed a LED unit inside the body and light up the eyes in the head. The LED unit was not included with it as it was sold seperately, so I re-used the LED unit from my PG Strike Freedom kit.

Preparing for Xmas and other stuffs!

It's good to prepare Christmas presents early. So to avoid any issues, I shipped out some of the kits that are meant for my friends as gifts, except for the BB Unicorn Gundam which is mine by the way haha...

I have another display case for my BB kits arrived a few days back. Not all can fit in so I decided to do a bit of a re-arranging and came up like this.
