Gundam Works: Zollidia, Exia and Astray Red Frame


Hey hey..guess what? I manage to get some pics of my previous Gundam works. Thanks to my good ol' buddy Fahmi (letting me take images of his precious took a lot of courage...heh). Anyhoo, I have taken the liberty to post 3 of the whole lot of Gundam kits that I've done using my trusty airbrush...

Okay, first up is the no-grade scale 1/100 Zollidia from the V-Gundam series. I've had this guy for quite some time and among all my collections, he's practically the only 'bad mech' from the Gundam world in my possession. I painted him before a while back by hand painting and it wasn't such a nice job. So when I got my airbrush, this guy got his paint stripped and done up properly.



Next up is the no-grade 1/100 Gundam Astray Red Frame. This particular fella is the 3rd one that I've done in my lifetime. heard it right. The 3rd time. And none of it was mine. LOL. Well, with this guy I used pre-shading. An airbrushing technique that I've been practicing on. It turned out okay. If you can see the seamlines, well, its not that I didn't want to cover was the insistance of my friend/customer. So forgive me. No worries though, I've slowly started to work on my 1/100 Blue own it will be better. Trust me.

The third fella is the no-grade 1/100 Gundam Exia from the Gundam 00 series. This is the latest kit from the new Gundam series and all I can say is that Bandai's Gunpla technology has improved so much. The kit now sports superb joints nearly as close to the Master Grade kits. The amount of details put into the kit is amazing! I was having a whale of a time building it, but like the Red Frame, the seamline covering was omitted. (It's because of the fee that I charge...heh...) But like I said, no own Exia will be making its way in this blog of mine.

Alrite peeps, that's the update for now. Next update we'll be going back to Transformers. Maybe a good healthy dosage of Gundam kits, Armored Core kits would do a lot of good for the blog don't you think so?

Until next time!
