[Completed][1/100] 05 Gundam Barbatos 6th Form

I bought this at Takashimaya mall where they held the Gunpla Expo 2016 at, and build it bit by bit over past few days during my break lol..

Since it still has parts to build the Barbatos 3rd form, I might as well build it in all forms using back the parts I took from the Graze kits. But I will be keeping it in it's 6th form ultimately lol..

[Completed][1/100] Graze (Standard or Commander Type) - [Updated 6th June 2016]

The first Graze as seen in IBO anime series lol.. I intended to do some painting for this but just didn't have the time to do so.. So I decided to just do a straight build it..

Noticed that there are some parts which were meant for the Barbatos kits, I could make all the various forms lol.. Also like the Schwalbe Graze, this Graze also have some parts that the Barbatos could use. We'll see how it goes, when I start my Barbatos painted build "soon" haha..

[Completed][1/100] Mcgillis's Schwalbe Graze [Updated 17th April 2016]

I decided to put my paint job plan for 1/100 Barbatos aside first and went ahead to build this Schwalbe Graze kit. I do have the normal Graze kit but that would wait if I have the time to do something better to enhance it lol.. This will be my third (Barbatos is the second) kit to in the IBO series and I really like it alot. I know there's the 1/100 Kimaris, Grimgerde and Graze Custom coming up, but I will probably wait till I finish my backlog first lol..

March 2016 Updates

Hi all! March is here and I still have not touch any of my kits since my last build haha.. But anyway, I'll be going overseas to Taiwan with my friends (including my girlfriend haha..) after tomorrow and I heard that there's a Gundam Base store there, so I want to go there and check it out, and probably buy some kits, preferably IBO kits, there along the way haha.. I had a few plans to do some paint job for one or two of the kits to get me refreshed and able to work on my next entry for this year's GBWC.

Other than that, not much more to update. Will just enjoy my trip after tomorrow haha.. =)

[Completed][1/100] Gundam Gusion & Gundam Gusion Rebake - [Updated 28th February 2016]

Long time no build Gundam, and I should start building something haha... I watched the Iron-Blooded Orphans anime and the kits were rather nice, even if it's just a 1/100 grade.. So I bought myself this kit =D

Initially I didn't know it included the Gusion Rebake parts, cos when I pre-ordered it it was just the Gusion. So it's kinda like a surprise to me when Bandai started to release the box art. So basically this kit only comes with one Mobile Frame and two parts, Gusion and Gusion Rebake parts of your choice to build.

I'm so going to buy the previous 3 1/100 kits of this series haha...

February 2016 Updates!

Sorry for the long and quiet period of my blog for quite some time lol... I had been busy with my work, and I didn't have any kits to build lately. I had seen some 1/100 kits for the Iron-Blooded Orphans (IBO) series but was quite reluctant to buy any of them, only just placed ordered for the 1/100 Gundam Gusion few months back, before everyone realized that this kit was going to include the parts for Gundam Gusion Rebake, so lucky me haha... Definitely going to get the previous three 1/100 IBO kits and it's future upcoming 1/100 kits soon haha..

Darkness Mobile Suit project update. Progress still has been quite slow, but still managed to start work on cutting some parts out for spray painting.. After March I will be focusing on buying the metal parts for my kit and buy some spray paint probably in the month of April and May.. So I should still be on time for this year's GBWC lol..I promised myself to make this year's entry more better than last year's, so I need some motivation for it lol...

That's about it for this month updates =)

[Completed][PG] RX-0[N] Unicorn Gundam Banshee Norn Full Psycho-Frame Prototype Mobile Suit (With LED Unit) - [Updated 9th January 2016]

The next Perfect Grade kit after Unicorn comes the Banshee Norn! Featuring it's Grenade Launcher that attached to the Beam Magnum, Armed Armor XC and Armed Armor DE, this is the next massive PG kit I had. The box itself is slightly thicker than the PG Unicorn kit due to the additional parts, and yes, I managed to get another LED set from HLJ =D

Armed Armor VN and Armed Armor BS currently selling as Premium Bandai, which I will get it and then put all the Armed Armor parts onto the Banshee lol..

[HG] Super Fumina Minato Sakai's Mobile Suit - [Updated 3rd January 2016]

First Gundam kit to start off 2016! Well, actually I had this kit like a month ago back as backlog lol.. So here's Super Fumina, which is quite a good kit, also came as a surprise to majority of the Gunpla community folks which they didn't know that Bandai could make such a kit. It may not be as good as what the Gundam Build Fighters anime shown, but this is quite satisfying enough lol..

Did some minor panel lining, and not using the decals for Fumina's eye lashes. So I attempted to use the marker to draw her eye lashes out.. Forgive me if it's ugly, I'm not a makeup artist lol..

Note: This kit does not cast-off parts =P

January 2016 Updates!

In case if you haven't noticed that I have no updates for December, it's ok lol.. I had no updates for December as I was only focusing on building the Destiny Gundam Heine Westenfluss kit.

So, first day of year 2016 and the second post of the year, I started building my Super Fumina kit finally which is my first post of 2016 lol.. And a few days back (last few days before the end of 2015) the Armed Armor VN & BS parts for PG Banshee has finally arrived! I will touch on that after concluding my Super Fumina build and it should be quite long, not the build time, but the possible usual of insanely lots of water slide decals to apply lol.. Trust me, the decal sheet seems way bigger the the PG Full Armor Unicorn parts lol..

Finally, on the updates for my DMS project, I have still yet to touch the kit what I wanted to work on, and I still drawing up my budget list to buy spray paints and stuffs. But definitely I can able to finish it by the time the next GBWC competition starts this year.

That's all for this month, and here's wishing everyone Happy New Year! =D
