I have always liked the design of the Gundam Wing Fenice Rinascita and didn’t want to do anything drastic to alter it but considering the amount of modding I was doing as of late I felt compelled to do more. The problem was that more so than the Crossbone I had little idea on how I should differentiate it from the basic OOB version. Continue reading →
Once I felt like the Gouf was complete I started to work on the Crossbone Maoh and like I mentioned before it’s a kit I got expressly because of its lack of seamlines. The reason for that is I am somewhat ambivalentwhen it comes to the design of the Crossbone in general with all of its pirate themes. I did consider removing the chest skull and divorcing the base kit from the pirate motif like I did with my MG Crossbone years back but all the amazing weapons this kit came with plus the audacious design the Maoh sports pushed me into keeping everything.

Jumping back into Gunpla I considered finishing the Sazabi but instead wanted to get a fresh build done, a simple and quick one. Interestingly enough though that spiraled into something that’s taking a bit longer. Continue reading →
It’s pretty obvious but I was really burnt out after the commissions, that combined with the end of Gundam Build Fighter Try (which was a constant motivation to do new kits) I decided to for a short time to try something a little different… some figure customizing.
I started collecting Gundam converge, and while searching for them at comic books stores I felt drawn back to marvel legends figures. Specifically customizing them since most aren’t really up to snuff compared with more expensive Japanese imports.
My knowledge of model customizing as well as all my tools really helped but there are a few differences especially in how to handle joints that slipped me up enough that I think once I am done with these I will be heading back to Gunpla without looking back.
For the most part these are repaints with some scribing, putty work, joint altering, a little part swapping, and some extra effect parts.
