I haven't been progressing as fast as I'd like lately, but I did decide to reproportion some of the torso. It's a bit too rounded and sleek, so I'm trying to widen and square it a bit to bring it more in line with the look of the anime. Read More
You guys asked for it, so here's my photo review of the of 560-page Mobile Suit Illustrated 2013 [+ Drawing]! Read More
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: 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 :/
I did a little more work on the shoulders today. They're going to need a lot of sanding and puttying before they look finished but the rough work has been finished. I also managed a little bit of work on the left hand. Read More

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.
