Easy does it. Didn't do much this week besides waterslides and sealing up some of the parts. I think I'll work on the head next. I'm just avoiding the masking I have to do on the limbs. 😝 The head has a little bit but it won't be as bad as the legs. On another note. I ran out of flat Mr Topcoat and busted out the premium Mr Topcoat. Man. So wow. Much premium. . . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam #hguc #hgucrevive #rx78 #hgbf #plasticmodels #buildfighters #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
Had a go finishing up the feet tonight. The red parts at least. Had to do some emergency modding since I was a dummy. I didn't check to see if the thrusters in the feet would interfere with any of the parts above it. Needless to say it did. 🤦🏻‍♂️ There's a video of me finding out the hard way. If your volume is up you hear me muttering to myself 😂 Other than that bit of excitement I had some more fun with Photoshop since many seemed to enjoy the last one. Pics 3&4 are the unedited for those who care to see what it looks like. . . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam #hguc #hgucrevive #rx78 #hgbf #plasticmodels #buildfighters #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
Waterslides. So many waterslides. Progress has been slow on this kit but it's steady. Every night I get some work done here and there. Hope to have all the blue, yellow and red pieces sealed up by this weekend. . . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam #hguc #hgucrevive #rx78 #hgbf #plasticmodels #buildfighters #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
Mail call! Got this sick rendition of a VF-1J by @eepmon today. I gotta find a frame for this now. 🤓 I want to put up some art to get the creative juices goin' 🎨💦 . . . #macross #robotech #vf1j #plamo #gunplabuilder #unspacey #sms #deculture #yakdeculture #マクロス
Finished up the waterslides on the feet! I call these right here the Nike Airmax 79 Orewa Gundamu 🤣 I'm joking. That's just a bad Photoshop. I used to collect Nike (basketball) shoes-- balled in them too! . . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam #hguc #hgucrevive #rx78 #hgbf #plasticmodels #buildfighters #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
Well that's it for this weekend. 😔 Sealed up the backpack and got some decal work done-- screwed up the big decal on the shield. Royally. 🤦🏻‍♂️ Besides that I got some more painting on the chest done so just gotta gloss. Also need to mask the limbs for color separation. Hopefully I'll have all the parts at least glossed by the end of next weekend! . . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam #hguc #hgucrevive #rx78 #hgbf #plasticmodels #buildfighters #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
Today's task. Masking and painting. I.loathe.masking. Even easy stuff like this. I must admit tho, after you pull the tape off and see that beautiful color separation, it's like the first time not using a rubber. Ok maybe not that good but close 🤣 . . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam #hguc #hgucrevive #rx78 #hgbf #plasticmodels #buildfighters #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
My #wcw doing her thang. All up in my office using my gear 😂 #gunplagirls #gunplabuilder
Slowly but surely. I need to repaint the back chest area due to some airbrush problems but I'm loving how this is coming together. And as you guys can see I went with the darker color as evidenced on the shield 😁 that pink will go to painting my Ryusei-Go Shiden tho. Gotta do some masking tonight on the chest to get some color blocking going there as well. Might decal the backpack tonight and get it sealed up by tomorrow. . . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam #titansmkii #hguc #hgucrevive #rx78 #hgbf #plasticmodels #zetagundam #buildfighters #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
Been busy with hanging out with the family this long weekend but had time to fit in some paint sessions. Just a quick video from yesterday. I need to gloss the painted items today so I can panel line and decal and seal. Sucks tho cuz I forgot I was going to preshade this kit 😂. I remembered precisely in this video when I painted some of the panel lines. Oh well next kit then. . . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam #titansmkii #hguc #hgucrevive #rx78 #hgbf #plasticmodels #zetagundam #buildfighters #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
Cleared out some of the quicker kits from the backlog today. I love how these rifles are "1/100" lmao. The sniper rifle on top is longer and the same width as the 1/48 scale beam rifle from the RX78 😂 For those interested the top and bottom weapons can be found on eBay under "HAR MK01 MK02" the one in the middle is also on eBay under "Caledbwlch Honoo" . . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam #hguc #hgucrevive #plasticmodels #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
Tonight's the night I'm either successful at putting these thrusters into the feet or hiding them from sight forever 😂 but first dinner! . . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam #titansmkii #hguc #hgucrevive #rx78 #hgbf #plasticmodels #zetagundam #buildfighters #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
So freaking pumped up on how this resin kit is coming together. My first experience with resin was a bad one so I was leery about trying another one. Well no qualms anymore! I just need a Barbatos Lupus to finish test fitting. Still deciding on a color scheme for this thing too. For those who are interested this is the Madworks kit for the HG Barbatos Lupus. I got it on museigen.com. . . . #gunpla #plamo #gundam #bandai #ironbloodedorphans #barbatoslupus #gunplabuilder #tekkadan #hgibo #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達 #ガンダム
Glued these suckers up for the mega size rx-78. Been laggin on masking (surprise surprise) so doubt I'll get much done this weekend. I'm thinking the backpack and shield will be done by end of the long weekend so I can see what all the metal parts look like 😁 . . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam #titansmkii #hguc #hgucrevive #rx78 #hgbf #plasticmodels #zetagundam #buildfighters #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
Played around with some effects I just picked up. Either I gotta learn Photoshop real quick or get some more black action stands.... So black action stands 😂 For the thrusters I used the beam sabers as "thruster effects" I guess you can call them? I got the idea from @the_tsainami Hope you don't mind dude! . . . #gundam #gunpla #plamo  #buildfighters #bandai #gunplabuilder #hgbf #anime #zetagundam #mecha #hguc #uc0096
Ah finally done with primer. I've never taken an assembled "primer" pic so I'm getting a kick out of this lol. This kit is seriously like a toddlers Lego kit. Aka the Duplo line. I included a couple high grades and a 1/100 kit for comparison. So far I gotta say I love the mega size kits. Awesome surface details. Articulation is meh but I usually choose a pose and never touch it again. Going to mask during the week and hopefully wrap this up next weekend. . . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam #titansmkii #hguc #hgucrevive #rx78 #hgbf #plasticmodels #zetagundam #buildfighters #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
Got damnit. Half way thru and I ran out of primer. You can't tell in this pic but there's a color difference on some pieces. I ran out of Mr Surfacer and decided to try out the Vallejo primer. While it's good I give the hat tip to Mr Surfacer because that shit cures in minutes. Now I gotta go drive around and try and find some. But yeah. This is today's WIP. Spam Mu-Sazabi will have to wait until waterslides get here. 🙄 . . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam #titansmkii #hguc #hgucrevive #rx78 #hgbf #plasticmodels #zetagundam #buildfighters #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
#tbt my first model kit, my first experience air brushing and the start of this time and money sucking hobby-- loving every minute of it!  I'm pretty sure I'm gonna do the MG version of this real soon. What I mean by that is I'll buy it soon and it'll sit in my backlog for a few more months. 🤪 . . . #gunpla #plamo #mecha #anime #gundamwing #gundam #winggundam #bandai #protozero #gundamwing #gundamwingzero #nograde #gunplabuilder #ガンダム  #ガンダムw #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
