It looks like Gundam GP01 from 0083 to me.
Not bad for a first go.
I might as well put what I'm planning on getting next and that would probably be the MG Zeta Ver2.

Well here are shots of my first Gundam model:




I am also in the process of building a Master Grade 1/60 Freedom model as well. I am documenting it at the moment for inclusion on my site with a bit more of a step by step of what I have done!

Just bought a FA-010S ZZ Gundam - Full Armor 1/100 MG kit from Hobby Co. Apparently they had a 40% off sale today so I got it for $70.80 instead of $118. Very Happy

I'll start start doing it as soon as I get the right paints for it.

I'm about a 3rd of the way into my full armour Zeta Gundam. Should be ready in the next week or so. It'll be finished before the end of the month.

Whent to Hobbyco the other day and saw a black Zeta model but didn't buy it (no money on me at the time), and when i whent there today it wasn't there.
My question it does anyone know the models full name? (i'm sure it wasn't just called black Zeta)

Edit : don't worry i found it 1/100 MSZ-006C1 ZETA plus C1 if anyone was interested

My model will be finished by monday, but I need advice on the stickerwork. Some of them don't have a peel off backing. Do I have to rub it onto the model?.

This is for my 1/100 Full Armour ZZ Zeta, similar to the FAZZ. In fact two of those non stickers has FAZZ on it.

As soon as it's finished, I'll post the pics, but I need the info concerning the non stickers.

Sounds like the pencil rubbing kind (Dry Transfer).
Tape it to the model with soft tape to hold it in place and then rub over it with a soft (not sharp) pencil until the whole thing is completely covered.

Yep, they are dry transfers. Jut cut out the one you want and tape the edges to the kit using modeling tape and just rub over it with the edge of a coin (trust me, it makes it a lot easier using a coin). Then remove the backing paper when you are done. Do this slowly so if you notice any you may have missed, you can carefully put it back in the correct stop and rub it again.

Thanks guys. I've finished the model, it just needs the stickers placed on it. I'll do those after I get some sleep.

The following 3 pics are of the completed ZZ Full Armour Gundam. I'll get some better close up pics of the body/face area once the battery recharges.





I found that the clear blue paint was my best friend. The flat blue looked greyish when dried, but it came in handy for the booster missile rack on the back and the twin beam cannons on the right arm. I mixed the flat blue with gun metal grey to get that effect. For the Mega Cannon, I used a very small amount of neutral grey mixed with the gunmetal grey.

Needless to say that it was a bastard to do and had to use modelling glue to repair a broken foot heal and to attach permanently the cloth belt attaching the front torso cannon section to the back.

Enjoy.

Oooh thanks for reminding me, I'll stop in there when I go to Sydney next. Their MG Zaku II is cheaper than buying it from HLJ Razz


That'd be about the only thing that is.

So far I own:

1/144 HG Providence (no more 1/144s for me after experiencijng 1/100s)
1/100 HG Saviour
1/100 HG Justice
1/100 HG Double X w/- G-Falcon (the later so badly done in terms of pre- dyied plastic that I wont assemble it until I can paint model kits)
1/100 HG Shenlong
1/100 HG Wing

Once by bonuses come from work, I can't wait to get my hands on a PG Zeta Gundam Smile

Yesterday I finished of a MG Strike Noir kit and I have to say that it's brilliant - even though the screw heads are made of incredibly soft metal. I'll add pictures when I get back home in a few days. Also, if anyone lives around Newcastle, not only are Frontline Hobbies a good place to go, but I have a running deal with them (unofficially) where provided I factor in GST, they'll effectively match the shipped price from HLJ on any kit I'm looking at.

I'm still new to modelling as well, but in a way, I find it relaxing and frustrating at the same time. Wink

I spent over 100 hrs doing my last model and that is nothing compared to some others here who go and do war damage artwork in theirs.

I agree modeling is relaxing, until you make a mistake or can't get enough light.

The newly released MG RX-78 ver OYW Anime colour got me to pull out one I've built previously. This is the original MG Gundam OYW with its panel lines removed plus the upper torso is from Gundam 1.5 to incorporate the coreblock.

Took some pics of my completed MG Strike Noir- decided against decalling it as I think it looks better unmarked:

Will be painting the Freedom next. Only a 1/144 scale kit that I picked up at work. I'm also redoing one of my 1/144 Strike Freedoms to make it look like a Dark Strike Freedom. I'll be trying for an evil look on it. Very Happy

I'll post pics once they get done.

I'm also hoping to get both Justice and Infinite Justice kits over the next month or so. Both in 1/144 scale.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a good double action air brush?
Iím going to move up to air brushing my models but there are so many to chose from, Confused I need one thatís as cheep as it can be but still being good quality and well suited for modelling purposes.

If anyone has sum advice it would be most appreciated. Smile



Edit: that brings me to another problem dos anyone know whet her is a translation for the colour chart in the manuals. All the text for mixing is in Japanese. Confused

What no one has a suggestion? Sad

Anyway I just borrowed a camera, so I though that I would post pics of my first panted Gundam. Smile
Unfortunately the flash seems to have made the blue look a lot lighter than it actually is.






At the moment Iím practising battel damage technics on a NG M1 Astray and Iíve almost finished my HG RGM-79 C, which Iím only a light weathered look.

Try Sparmax DH-103.
It's double action and basically copy of Iwata's HP-C airbrush with the adjustable handle already attached~
Being 0.3mm it should be sufficent for most of Gunpla use...

For bit of change here's the Gunpla diorama I've finished recently.
If anyone watched the original MG Gundam TV series there's the famous scene where Zeon's Amphibious MG Z'Gok infiltrated Earth Federation Forces' underground HQ Jaburo and destroyed EFF mass production MG GM by piercing its chest area with its metal claws.

The idea of this diorama came about one day when I was thinking of building the diorama depicting the same scene using 1/144 scale kits. However seeing how many times it's been done over and over again I thought what if I swapped the roles around. And this is the result of that one silly idea... Just don't ask how MS's manipulator can penetrate the armour plates... Wink

If you are ineterested in the WIP please check below link.
1/144 Jaburo diorama - recap

Enjoy and welcome any criticism...




You can see more pics over here. Sleepy

Thanks for that. Very Happy

And thatís some nice weathering, especially the ZíGok, it really looks like metal in the first picture.

I hope I can get that good

I think there used to be a Chinese model shop called Hyper Hobby at the basement of the Kinokuniya building opposite of QVB in Sydney CBD.
Now I found that has been moved but don't know where...

Anyone know where they've moved?
Coz I used to buy Gunze Gundam Color Set from there and need to restock my supply... -__-;;

cheers & TIA

That place had to shut up since the lease ran out, well I think thats 1 reason anyway due to the lease ran out sale they had.

They have a website Astrohobby
On the contacts page it shows the address of the one remaining, I havn't been there myself but I know the City Mark building isn't far from central station.

Here is something I've recently completed.

It was a refreshing change to get away from 1/100 and 1/144.

I am putting up a display of my Gundam Models at the Logan North Library for the month of April 2008, and on the 12th I'll be showing off my entire collection and discussing the history of Gundam, its impact in Japan, showing different models and up for grabs will be a Zeta plus C2 1/100 model.

I have about 40 models, mostly 1/100 because I hate 1/144s.

I think I'll have Akatsuki (the gold one), along with Strike Noir, Gold Astray and Strike IWSP on display. At the presentation, I'll have my 1/144 Meteor Unit, 1/60 Strike Freedom (Lightning Edition) and a whole bunch of others. Its gonna be so fun.

EDIT - I'll also be adding Exia and Dynames to the display.

1/100 GM anime version that I've been meaning to build...
Actually started at the end of last year but stopped due to family life...
In the mean time here are the summary of the WIP~ ^ ^

[PART 1]

So while I'm waiting for the other set of 1/78 wheel parts to arrive [this is for the 1/100 Gundam Trailer kit] I've decided to build this GM conversion kit since I got MG Gundam v1.5 kit on sale. This B-Club conversion resin kit consisted of replacement leg parts, head, waist, hatch and front/rear skirt parts. The rest are from v1.5 kit.

Here you can see the single page instruction sheet for the conversion kit.


The build up is fairly straight forward. Just build v1.5 kit per its own instruction - that means arms and leges are to be built minus some armour parts.
One tricky part would be snap fitting the front section of groin section which is resin and the back part from the injection kit.
Also it is advisable to use brass rod to connect the rear skirt to the part that will be glued to the rear section of groin part. It's best to use AC and leave for overnight to be safe. Also it'd be good idea to put the new polly joint for the front skirt at the same time.

Once done the rest are straight forward as snap fitting the remaining parts. Though for good fitting you will need a lot of small adjustments - i.e. sanding/carving/trimming and etc.

Initially I put the spare ver.KA feet parts from my junk part but after seeing that this conversion is quite faithful to the original GM illustration I've decided to switch back to the feet from v1.5 kit. Also I used the spare B-Club HDM hands from the junk box though I've yet to find the hand suitable in holding the beam spray gun. Its grip is too thin and slippery and without some modification no hand will be able to hold it properly. I'm seriously considering to modify the side skirt in order to mount it there like MG GM kit.

While working on this kit I also found my old stash of B-Club HGUC style arm replacement parts for MG Gundam v1.5 and thought this would be the good time to use since I wasn't happy with the skinny arms in v1.5 kit.
This arm resin kit has fairly simple parts breakdown and the downside I guess is the poseability. As you can see in below instruction sheet the elbow mobility is fairly limited though it won't matter much since I'm not building this GM v1.5 to have the wide variety of mobility - maybe I will come up with some improvement in this department before finishing it.



And now some pictures I've taken during pre-assembly stages...
It's just rough build up to see the area where I can do some improvement~
[for example I'm still considering whether to use v1.0 chest armour instead of 1.5 part...]

Not quite finished yet but since I have no time to finish it off this will have to till later half of this year...

Hope you enjoy~

How did you get that colour on the vernier, Is it a type of paint?

Depends what you mean by expensive!

Some resin kits can go for up to and over $700US (that would be for some huge kits like a 1/35 scale Gundam for example).

In Plastic Injection, the PG kits are most expensive. I have seen the PG GPo1 for $450AUD in a shop in Melbourne. Of course, it is cheaper to buy these over the internet though.

How did you get that colour on the vernier, Is it a type of paint?


Just over spraying of clear yellow, clear blue using airbrush like what they are doing with Bike model kits...

Should have posted in here sooner next model I have eyes on doing next is 1/60 Force Impulse Gundam.
Is there any extra weapon packs like how the Strike Gundam 1/60 PG got the Striker Weapons system?

wanders in from the interwebs & pokes his account

'lo all, Rod.H here. Shinohara AV98 Ingram & Tachikoma fan, sometimes foil of raving Peorth-fanbois. I have some things to show you




Ayep it's movie-style EVA-01 and a Lego AT-ST. I've run a black fine-line gundam marker over some panellines, but I have to at some point pull it all down & clean off some sprue nips. Not to mention finish the paint job, I've some Gundam markers due in the post. I'm also going to kludge up a 2nd plug unit for that open fist.

Now one from my true fandom

One no grade Ingram & a MG ingram. And yeah I've still things to do to finish them. More on the NG then the MG, as it's left arm has fallen off & the elbow joint's busted. How ever the next time I build an Ingram, it'll be a Master Grade. Heck if I build a Gundam it's going to be MG minimum, much easier to build.

Hoping someone answers, if they know about if there are other weapon sets out there, but then again.
Probably not since Impulse Gundam's other forms have different colours.

The Perfect Grade Strike never got the complete set of striker packs- the 3 striker weapons packs were for the Big Scale Real Detail 1/60 Strike.

Got given a MG Turn-A Gundam for my birthday and I'm slightly disappointed. I thought for the 100th MG Gundam Kit there wouold have been things done to the nth, but the kit completely lacked an inner frame system. The poseability is great and the weapons for the most part are brilliant (the rifle feels a little loose in parts upon completion), but the lack of an inner frame system is slightly disappointing- will post pics in the next few days along with my 1/400 Alpha Azelf when it arrives hopefully in the next few days.

Here's the Turn-A competed- I'll post pics of the Alpha Azelf once the batteries on the digicam recharge. Enjoy:








EDIT:

Here's the Alpha Azelf diorama:

Hi,

I'm new around these parts and thought I'd stop in to say hi.

I've made an introductory post in the relevant thread.

Just wanted to say that there's some amazing work going on in this thread, particularly by amuro_rey, Majin Cell, and several others too.

I really like the first pose of the Turn A above by Bowspearer, I've got this kit on the way and I might just be borrowing that pose for mine (if you don't mind!). That Turn A looks like it would look awesome with some panel lines. The cow was what sealed the deal for me!

I am a lowly snap builder. Wink I don't know if I'll progress much beyond that, but with my most recent build under construction, PG 1/60 Wing Zero Custom, I have panel lined and sharpened the V-fins, and with the last few I've built I've invested signifigant time in trimming the sprue tags perfectly flush on every single piece.

I will be panel lining all my future kits with the exception of Akatsuki, and may go back and panel line/tidy up my earlier kits one day.

Unfortunately due to the current lack of local releases for anything UC on DVD (HINT HINT MADMAN!!!) I am ashamed to say I haven't seen any of the UC series... YET. I am more than interested so please don't write me off for only having watched the local releases (and a bit of Turn A in Japan but that doesn't count because I didn't understand a thing).

I have a bunch of pictures up on my friend's site, where I've tried to start a bit of an unrestricted forum for Australian Gunpla enthusiasts, but I'm unclear on the rules here about linking to that. I'll have to re read the rules section.

I understand Madman not wanting any thunder stolen, and I can appreciate that and have no intention of doing so.

For now, there's a button at the bottom of my posts that leads to it. Feel free to come over for a look at my kits, and I would more than welcome anyone to sign up and participate.

edit: I've added some links to my pics, mods please let me know if this is not ok. I have emailed you Mr waffle.

I have pics of my finished builds, a progress thread for the Wing Zero, pics of my forthcoming kits and more.

I actually prefer to encourage a new thread for each kit build, and another posing thread when it's completed, that way you don't have to trawl through 17 pages of one thread to see the kits you're interested in.

Here is a list of my current Gunpla:

Completed:

MG 1/100 RX93 Nu Gundam Amuro Ray Custom (great kit!)
MG 1/100 Gouf Custom
HG 1/100 Heavyarms Custom

HGUC 1/144 Zeong

To build:

HG 1/144 Gaia (Andrew Waldfeld Custom)
HG 1/144 Shiranui Akatsuki x 2
HG 1/144 Blu Duel
HG 1/144 105Dagger+Gunbarrel
HG 1/144 Verde Buster

MG 1/100 Zaku Black Trinity Ver. 2.0
MG 1/100 God
MG 1/100 Unicorn
MG 1/100 Turn A

Smile

Actually, if you had the Gm using its beam saber to do it, it'd make perfect sense.

The clear blue things? I think it's you ^^; The kit only came with the four, but I made two and didn't use them on the first one, so that gives me an idea... Twisted Evil
