Nadleeh! -1/144 Nadleeh ver. 1-

So pretty much, the reason I like Virtue, is b/c of Nadleeh -although this unit is very useless towards the end... As you will see, the model kit is rather flexable... Applied smearing to show weathering, rather than put white paint on white plastic.

Very slender, very clean, very poseable. This kit is good practice for those who want to built up their modeling skills. As well, this model shows that HG kits are getting better. Very happy with Bandai on this... A must get for those who want a fun unit to play around with. (It can do the splits...)

Time completed: roughly 4 days (2 days worth of continuous work applied)
Overall Grade: A

no fun pics...

Destroying The Target! -1/144 Virtue ver. 1-

You know, in the beginning of 00, I REALLY HATED VIRTUE. Too fat, I said. Boy was I wrong... When I bought this kit, I thought, meh, I'll give it a shot, and it turns out to be one of my favorite 00 kits. Eventually I switched sides from hated the unit to absolutely LOVING it.

More pics:

GET IT! No, I swear to god, get it! If you can put a bit more time than what I have, you can EASILY try to mod it so it goes on to HG Nadleeh. As you can see, with an action base stand, you can pose it very well. The only thing I have against it, is the fact that when I use my GN Bazooka at full burst mode, the top flap sorta slops... Maybe too much sanding and what not...
Time completed: roughly 1 to 2 weeks (with about 3 days of continuous work applied)
Overall Grade: A-

For Fun:
Playing a bit with shadows...

Let's Lock and Roll! -1/144 Dynames ver. 1-

So this is one of the build I completed a while back, that I should have updated live, but didn't. Regardless, HG00, which means it is a 1/144 scale model of the widely popular GN-002 Gundam Dynames, piloted by our favorite (not mine, though) Lockon Stratos.

More pics...

Not a bad 1/144 kit. The one thing that PISSES me off on this model is the fact that they didn't add the GN Pistols to it, while later releasing the GN Arms-Type D model, with Dynames carrying the GN Pistols. WHAT THE HELL. Good job Bandai, you are trying to milk my money... Other than that, didn't realize how rigid the shield looks... Could be made better....

Time completed: roughly 3 months (2 to 3 days worth of continuous work applied)
Overall Grade: B+

For fun shots>
Come to the Dynames fan club....

Look ma! I'ma Tieren! heavily armored, Monoeye... Yea, I pass as one!

Kikoeru ka~! kono ore no koega! Kanjiruka~! (King Gainer ED)

PS: DON'T mention the panel line...

PSS: Ver. 1 represents that I am willing to buy another kit in the future and completely revamp and supersede this work (and conveniently, I am about to by GN Arms Type D. I am such a sucker...)

I am switching my picture holding media, from Flickr to Photobucket, what I am used to. I like how Flickr, you can upload any size you want, and they will automatically give you the option to view it in different sizes (while Photobucket mandates that you have to choose a size to begin with).

However, the fact that I have to pay to get more "sets" are rather annoying, and being a cheap bastard, I will not partake in this... At least in photobucket, they gave me album options to sort and organize your media.

so yea, changing... will update some time later regarding the two builds I finished over the 10 days of building, Dynames and Nadleeh. Also, GN Arms is not finished, due to not having time, and thinking of a new color scheme...
