Gunpla and life in general

the wysiwyg for wordpress is starting to annoy me.

i’m tired of editing and re-editing so here.

photographs and some notes about this build so far:

  • the plastic on this kit has a hardness between the PC pieces for joints and piping for Zakus. it’s quite annoying as the scratching technique to make nubs unnoticeable does not work as well.
  • minor flash marks all around make it difficult to distinguish what is excess and what is necessary
  • opted for gundam red marker instead of tamiya clear red
  • decided to panel line/flat coat the entry plug holder as it would have been difficult doing so after completion
  • panel lined the back of the head and placed the number “1” decal but no flat coat yet, it probably won’t get one until completion considering the surface is safe behind the helmet

although there are some negatives so far, i’m looking forward to working on this again tomorrow and completing it.

enjoy!

    About the plamo.. That’s the rebuild version right? Finally someone who’s going to do a write up for it.

    • yeah, i was looking for reviews before buying this kit and saw one youtube video, didn’t really help but i did see the articulation. i was either going to get the soul spec or the kit and i thought i’d have more fun with building. the soul spec is to hold its arms horizontally though, this one can only go up to 45 degrees.

  2. Ah….an EVA kit, I remember I have one (the old version), long ago…
    I think the entry plug and elbow joint system is very cool 😀

    hope to see more of your eva!
