Hey guys just a heads up the Gunpla Builders world cup is coming to a close on OCTOBER 15TH so please go to the link below and enter your completed kits in. GBWC is a annual contest put on by BANDAI internationally to basically crown the best gunpla builders. this is the North American region entry spot. a winner will be chosen to be the North American Champ, then second third etc. then if i am not mistaken all the entries photos will be sent to bandai and one kit could possibly be chosen to represent the North American region in Japan for the International champion. So just create an album of your kit and select "Yes enter into GBWC" takes 5 minutes and you can end up winning some serious prizes so get over there and don't be intimidated just get over there and do it, you won't regret it.

Quick Update :)

Well i have a couple little things to show you guys. I finished snapping together the back pack for the PG MK.II shortly after my post yesterday so that means she is ready for paints. I am currently not at my house with my airbrush and what not, not like that matters though because i am thinking i am gonna invest in a new compressor and spray booth when i get payed so i can move my painting from my garage to the indoors. so that is why i have not started tearing this thing down yet. but here are some photos to enjoy even if it is bare plastic. :)

Now like i said earlier about not painting yet, well since i am not painting i decided to start snapping together my recently acquired PG Gundam Astray Red Frame and well when you open the box you see LOTS of red.

 This photo is a little decieving on how many runners there really are and how many of them are red lol but that doesn't really matter the point is there is a lot. now these next photos will show you something that they did have in the PG MK.II to an extent but still blows me away.

Now on the MK.II alone i thought these types of pre assembled parts (which still amaze me) would be a pain to paint and they are only one color now these being two colors i can guarantee are going to be a serious pain in the ass. and to clarify that entire hand is connected in the picture above so it will be interesting to see how it folds into place.

So i can deal with those hands being a pain to paint but this next photo just left me scratching my head. why did bandai not make this two pieces?

And if anyone cares, the red frame was built on top of the PG Strike Gundams frame and so a lot of the pieces are recolors of Strike components and they are all colored in a darker shade of red which i think is really cool giving the model a little more flavor and depth so here is a comparison

Thanks for stopping by guys and gals so until next time.

Stay classy

Quick Update and New Pick Up

Just got this guy in a couple days ago. was wanting it pretty bad and Tatsu hobby had one instock for $198 so can't beat that. check out there site if you have not already. great guys down there with great service and awesome shipping. i ordered this at 1:30 in the day and it was shipped that day saw it two days later and for only $11.

Next up got a MK.II update. I have been working at a snails pace due some other distractions but got it all snapped together for the most part besides the back pack. probably will do that this weekend and then i will tear it down for paint.

D-Smith Vs. Substance build off cancelled. I decided to attempt quite a bit of scratch building on mine which is probably gonna go past the slotted time frame. other things came up for Substance as well. He was offered some commissions that were pretty tough to turn down.

I will continue working on my MK.II and will update you guys when i have something worth showing/ when i find my camera charger LOL

D-Smith Vs. Substance Models

Well for some time now mechalounge regular Substance and I have been planning to do a Perfect Grade build off. We have had a stuff to finish up and we are finally getting around to it. I started working on the Perfect Grade RX-178 MK.II last night and completed snap fitting the  right leg. I knew  PG's were gonna be far supperior to Master Grades but to say i was blown away by how intricate and just intersting the build was would be an understatement. It was anything and everything i expected and then some. I have some pictures for you guys but nothing super exciting since no mod work or paint has been done but still some eye candy.

Speaking of mod work. i am still trying to brainstorm something but i originally just wanted to light this sucker up, but i have been stumped in my quest to add LED's to the leg vents. The leg vents actually slide in and out making it impossible if i want to keep that feature of the kit. If i decided i didn't want to keep that feature it would still be difficult due to the construction its self. I should have taken pictures of what it looks like but it doesn't seem practical, but maybe i just need to come back to it later and see if that opens my mind up a little more.

On yet another note i am still trying to decide on my color scheme. I initially was gonna do somewhat of an Amuro/Nu Gundam rip off using his unicorn and Amuro logos with a black/white/yellow scheme. Now i am kinda starting to think i might do something similar to the MK.III  but with more varying shades of grey

So let me know what you guys think and any ideas or advice is always welcome. here is some pictures like i said so enjoy even though they are pretty bad pictures lol  :)
