Yes yes... I'll hopefully end up with a transparent visor to cover the details. A tint will be applied manually by airbrush after that.

Thanks guys! Already having fun!  :lol:

Here's a little update before I call it a night...




Did some crude detailings for the monoeye. Looks a bit awkward right now because of the unpainted state. Hope it will look slightly better painted.

Planning to try our heat forming for the visor, which I will be smoking a bit to reveal just a little bit of the internals...

Must keep to my target of trying out something new for every kit I do  :)

Hmm... haven't really given it much thought. Maybe just a simple one :)

This is my entry to the FFF SD build. Figured it'd be fun to take a break from 1/144 kits  :lol:

Nothing much to show yet, just glued and sanded most of the parts. Test fitting it with a HGUC Dom tropen's open palm.


Seperated the shoulder from the lower arm. Will be gluing it back in place, but at a more natural angle for the open palm, as shown in the 1st pic.

Great job man! I too like the cut off edge of the building. Not quite used to seeing a brown tall geese though...

The aries looks very interesting!

EDIT : And oh, congrats on your 5th placing too!

the strike looks interesting in red. And I'm curious about the water too!

PS : Anymore pics from Thailand BAKAC?

Thanks FF!

Yeah, I ran into some problems for the yellow stripe, and my impatience got the better of me.

Was originally airbrushed but I accidentally chipped the paint, andit left and unsightly dent. Didn't wait for the paint tofully cure before sanding, ended up compounding the effect...  :(  Finally removed paint from the entire line and handpainting...

Model In-Progress / Strike Gundam Pack Test Unit
« on: August 09, 2005, 07:51:23 AM »
Hot dang! I love the colour scheme and the intended pose!

I got the MG strike, but have not assembled it yet so I can't be sure. But I've been told that once the aile pack has been asembled, the shoulder joint will be obstructed and you won't be able to tilt the shoulders up like that anymore..

Model Talk / Modeling Style Preference
« on: May 02, 2005, 06:11:25 AM »
I chose mobility mods.. though actually what I really do is to snap em up as toys :lol: (judging by the amount of snapped fit unfinished models I have lying under my bed.)

When I first started out doing models, my style was more towards making the detailing on the kit line art accurate. Well this was a neccessity back then when kits weren't made with as much details/accuracy as the new HGUC line up.

Nowadays, I tend to add mobility to my kits, because: -
A. I am fickle minded and can never decide on a pose
B. I'm pretty bad at designing custom colours or decals so having a bad ass pose is the only other means I know of that can attract attention.

A new thing I'm trying out on my current kit is to alter proportions by beefing up certain areas and slimming down others. I must say that I'm enjoying this quite a lot, and it may one day become more important to me than mobility mods. :)

Model Gallery / Hamster Ball is done!
« on: April 24, 2005, 03:57:21 AM »
Nice work as usual FF! :)  I like the way you used the transparent tubing to hold the ball up. at certain angles it really cannot be seen and the ball does look like its floating.

I noticed that the panels look a bit uneven at some areas. I got this same problem as well with mine. Kinda makes the panel lining a bit irregular, thicker in certain areas and thinner in others. The gap between the blue and grey coloured areas on the right hand side of the ball seems to be a little wider. And as a result it looks like the panel lining right below the words 'hamster ball' and also at the ear of the hamster is a bit too light. Perhaps is just the reflection from the lights. Just my opinion  :)

The base looks great too!

Assembly/Scratchbuilding / Metal Rings, Unknown to me...

Hi, sorry for post digging.  :oops:

I make mine from milliput. Heres a pic. Its not as clean as turbo-squid's pic, but mine's a 1/144 :P


Whenever I have leftover milliput, I tend to roll it up into a long stick, as thin as possible. To make this sort of detailing, what I do is to first drill a hole onto the model, then glue this stick into the hole. Cut of the excess, and sand it to make a flat. Then drill the center with the smallest drill I can find. Haven't tried it on larger scale models, but am sure it will work.
