[Kit Insight] Bandai RG 1/144 MSN-04 Sazabi (Painted Build)

Model Number: MSN-04
Designation: Neo Zeon Char Aznable's Use Mobile Suit for Newtype

[Work-In-Progress: Pending application of the Realistic Decals (because waterslide decals will drive me insane).]

Undoubtedly the BEST Real Grade model kit so far, all things considered.

Sunday, August 19, 2018

[Kit Insight] Bandai HGBD 1/144 MBF-PNN Gundam Astray No-Name (Ver.GPN) (Painted Build)

Model Number: MBF-PNN
Designation: Tsukasa Shiba's Customised Mobile Suit for Gunpla Duel

Arguably the best Gunpla design but highly debatable Gunpla model kit to come out of the Gundam Build Divers series!

Sunday, August 12, 2018

[Kit Insight] Bandai HG 1/144 EB-1051 Gjallarhorn Golem (Customised Build)

Model Number: EB-1051 "Golem"
Designation: Gjallarhorn Limited Mass Production Enforcement Use Mobile Suit for Siege Warfare

The Galbady Rebake may be based on the Galbady Beta but it also looks and feel very much like a mobile suit from the universe of the Iron Blooded Orphans!

Model Number: FA-78-06/2 
Designation: EFSF Single Production Full Armor High Mobility Sustained Combat Use Mobile Suit

Since Bandai is taking its own sweet time to give us a HGUC 1/144 Gundam Mudrock (that has since changed), I decided to do one up myself, although I took certain liberties to the base design.

This is also my entry for GBWC 2018!

Sunday, July 15, 2018

[Custom] Bandai HG 1/144 GN-GM (Customised Build)

Model Number: GN-GM

If a single Gundam-type mobile suit was able to stop petty wars and territorial conflicts, can a whole army of them actually change the world?

[Gallery] MoShow/Poison Toys/Kungfu Toys Metal Build Plus 1/100 00Q Qan[T]

While cosmetically similar to the Bandai version of the Metal Build 1/100 00Q Gundam 00 Qan[T], this third party offering bears many distinct differences, notably in the bundled equipment!

[Kit Insight] Premium Bandai MG 1/100 RMS-179 GM II [Unicorn Ver.] (Straight Build)

Model Number: RMS-179 GM II
Designation: EFSF Mass Production General Use Mobile Suit

The GM II was a mobile suit frozen in time, being a combination of the technology that preceded its development while also serving as a testbed for the technology that will succeed it.
