Blitz Finished

Well, the Blitz Gundam is now finished (and yes I will post some pics soon!) Not too sure when however, as it appears my Graphics Card may have died last weekend, so next weekend i'll be catching up with friends to do a few things for them, and in return they'll get a new card installed etc etc.

In terms of kits now in progress, this is what i currently have:

- Geara Zulu (1/144 MS Gundam Unicorn)
- Strike Rouge + IWSP (1/144 Gundam Seed Destiny MSV)
- Providence Gundam (1/144 Gundam Seed)
- Gundam Virtue (1/144 Gundam 00)
- Gundam Nadleeh (1/144 Gundam 00)
- Gundam Throne Eins (1/144 Gundam 00)

Hoping to start up soon:

- Gundam Exia Repair II [CLEAR] (1/144 Gundam 00)
- 0 Gundam Type ACD [CLEAR]
(1/144 Gundam 00)

The Exia one will probably be closer to the end since I've already made an Exia and Exia Repair II kit previously.

Kits are still highly varied in terms of general 'quality', but that is to be expected. I guess having gone on that made rush with the Gundam 00 kits have really spoiled me a lot. Will note now though, the Providence kit was annoying! Some of the chest parts were quite small and fiddly, so there was numerous times when i was getting quite miffed at trying to put them into place. With the exception of the Eins, the other WIP kits have the main torso and heads done, so if i get a pic or two of the Blitz, i'll try to take one of those.

The other thing i also need to try to remember is how to insert images from Photobucket and then do the re-size within the blog so the pictures doesnt kill the blog layout *le sigh*

Continued Gundam Work

Did a bit of minor work - Finished off the head for Nadleeh, which I will admit, has probably been one of the more fiddly heads I have done thus far but it looks pretty ok, although I was hoping it would look a tad bit more like it would in the show.

No further work has been done on the Geara Zulu, but I did start up the Blitz Gundam (1/144 HG from Gundam Seed) and I was actually quite disappointed that the kits back then were still semi-simplistic and hadn't been produced in the same way the Gundam 00 kits were. So with that all in mind, I'm going to guess alot of the major changes to the 1/144 scale must have occured no more than the last 5 years, but definitely within the last 2-3 years as that is when Gundam 00 came along. Will admit I have had more fun with the Gundam 00 kits, heck Exia (and Exia Repair II) were definitely some complex kits given what I had experienced back from 10 odd years ago.

Was tempted to start up the Virtue (Gundam 00 1/144 HG) alas with the whole sleep time concept starting to kick in, I might have to give it a miss.

Also in complete randomness since I am watching Gundam Seed... This will probably be spoilerific, so I might change the text color: but my goodness the character of Flay Allster IS CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is all!
