Another hobby of mine
Written by: vedajanitra - 15:57 Jul-24-2018

Since September last year, i was into this Gunpla building hobby. For those of you who don't know, Gunpla stands for Gundam Plastic, which is a line up model kit based on the Gundam series by Sunrise, and subsidiaries of Bandai. Here is my latest work :

 

This is the first kit that i painted every detail fully, i even painted the whole inner frame ! Anyway, just want to share :P

Thanks Jon ! The paint job still felt rushed and sloppy on certain areas (i did it when i had a cold), but i gotta say it came out rather nice. The kit above is on the scale of 1/144, which is the smallest size of a gunpla kits (excluding the chibi/sd version). Here's the comparison.

Damn those 1/60s are huge lol, need a paint roller for them. How long did this one take? I think it would take me ages as I'd be obsessing about perfecting it

Just to avoid any misunderstanding, i didn't paint the blue parts because it's part of the plastic runners. I painted the inner frame and every bit that unpainted and try to match the color accuracy of this kit shown in the anime.


Straight assembly + panting took around 10 hours to finish. Another hour to topcoat the kit to give it a perfect finish. It will take more time to repaint the whole thing lol.


This is how the kit looks like unpainted and straight built
