Monthly Archives: January 2013

My shipment came in from HLJ this morning and it was surprisingly heavy (9.5kg!)  Though the kits are really exciting, the thing I was most looking forward to is this: zomg! Mobile Suit Illustrated! This massive book is the Mobile Suit Illustrated for 2013!  It seems they only put these out every couple of years and they contain full color artwork for pretty much every suit in the Gundam universe plus a ton of line art.  This thing should be a great source of inspiration and reference information  even though most of the text is unreadable to me :/  

Thanks to Rilkal on Reddit, I'm now working on the Master Grade Shining Gundam! It's an older kit and definitely has its quirks , but it's a neat design that has a lot of potential. Planned mods include removing the transformation gimmick and permanently locking it into Super Mode, lighting effects (Shining Finga!), and reshaping of various parts of the model to bring its appearance more in line with the anime. See the full WIP gallery here!  

So yeah, I’m setting up one of these as well.  I’m still roughing out the layout, but actual content is planned for the next couple of days.  In the meantime, enjoy this gif that I made about the RX-78 2.0.
