Just thinking it'll be good to gather more questions to ask Kunio Okawara (Gundam's mechanical designer) during a local event. The organisers allowed me to conduct an email interview with him, and possibly an event interview as well.

Any kind of question will do; but of course, it must be logical and and relevant to his work. You can either pm me the questions or reply it over here. Questions that are picked for the email interview will be posted onto AFA08's site.

More details about the event below.

Model Gallery / HGUC Nu Gundam - Model Graphix color scheme

I didn't like the pastel colors on the original Nu Gundam color scheme, so I replaced the yellow/orange with Tamiya Gold. Decals are from MG Hi-Nu and MG Char's Zaku II/Gelgoog from Bandai.

Model In-Progress / HG 1/144 Gundam Astraea F Melee type
« on: January 09, 2008, 04:53:04 PM »
I haven't finish touching up on the scratched up parts and more slight wearing, but basically I handpainted the entire kit with Gunze acrylics character red, red, custom purple mix, custom grey mix (for the face), custom dark red mix for the feet and Mr Color Metallic Gold. Other areas include Tamiya Gold and Dirty Yellow and Chrome. The weathering's done with Tamiya enamel brown wash and a very diluted Tamiya Dirty Yellow wash.

The decals mostly come from SEED series, with the large '01' on the shoulder from Hi-Nu, and the leg areas from MG Strike Freedom. No mods whatsoever, just direct conversion from the Dengeki Hobby parts.

Model In-Progress / Super Robot Musha Gundam SEN.ver
« on: November 20, 2007, 12:23:49 PM »
Thought of making a kit that resembles a super robot-ish gundam with samurai-ish armor parts, most of the inspiration comes from Daizengar (or Dygenguard) from Super Robot Wars.

I used MG spiegel for the inner frame, 1/100 Blitz for the armor parts, and 1/100 Heavyarms Custom for the head. Still at the planning stages, don't really have a fixed idea on how to make it look like, but currently I'm quite pleased with the outcome for now. need more boosters, and probably a beam shotgun for it. Don't know if I should mount beam sabers onto its forearms. A giant cleaving sword would be on its way, need to get materials for it to be scratchbuilt and mountable onto the backpack.

Sorry for the poor picture quality since it's taken from my handphone camera.
