Showcase / HG ZZII Gundam
« on: May 19, 2018, 01:41:05 AM »
The last commission I did (the Zeta 2.0) like I mentioned in its thread was stolen/misplaced in shipping and the client never got it, so he wanted another kit done in a similar color scheme.

He was pretty lax about seamlines and since this is a fairly new kit the ones it did have were hidden fairly well.

Got around to reviewing the Gundam Weapons book dedicated to the kits from IBO's 2nd season.
A few other gunpla book reviews there too if you haven't seen.

Showcase / 1/100 MG Zeta 2.0 Amuro blue
« on: March 10, 2018, 06:29:37 PM »
Possibly my last commission, this is another Zeta 2.0 but in a blue version of the Amuro Zeta design.

Surprisingly good build considering how many large 3rd party decals I used on this. There were decal tears but they weren't that common and I was prepared for them this time. One unfortunate thing did happen though, someone stole the package containing the kit after it was delivered at my clients home. He's trying to get reimbursed by USPS since it was priority mail but it's slow going.

Showcase / 1/100 Vent Saviour Gundam
« on: March 02, 2018, 05:32:14 PM »
My commissions are starting to end and I will probably stop them entirely by the fall, but until then here is the latest one.

A commission of an old NG 1/100 SEED Destiny kit, the Vent Saviour.
Was nice to do a kit as basic as this even though that meant horrible seams. The client wanted just a basic build so I opted to leave the worst seamlines alone and focus only on the ones that I could easily modify.

Showcase / 1/100 MG Blue Red Astray
« on: February 11, 2018, 12:32:54 AM »
Another commission and another Astray, even though I love the Astray design I am REALLY getting some Astray fatigue.
Custom kit bash with a modified backpack.

A lot of paint rub issues on this that took a bunch of retouches to fix, but the client was happy when he received it so I'm good.

Showcase / 1/144 HG Mega Shiki Defenser
« on: January 13, 2018, 01:15:56 AM »
Last commission build of 2017 and because it was a HG that needed some modding it ended up being one of my favorites of the year.
The only issue was that the decals I was supplied with really had some silvering problems that no matter what I tried wouldn't clear up.

Showcase / 1/100 MG Lukas Strike E

A Lukas Strike E commission in titans colors with slight modifications in the shoulders and for the grand slam sword.

It's been a long time since I built a Gundam that needed screws, I kinda miss them.

Showcase / 1/100 MG Zeta 2.0
« on: November 18, 2017, 04:57:04 PM »
Basic oob where the client wanted me to recreate a color scheme he saw online.

It's my first time with the Zeta 2.0 and even though it's a nice kit I much prefer the RG version that so many seem to hate.

Showcase / 1/100 Woundwort
« on: November 04, 2017, 09:00:01 PM »
Another commission and man was this one of the worst but not because of the client but because of the kit.

If you haven't seen any of the reviews on this kit which was the first release by a new third party company called Cute Cube, its a mess.
With all my past bootleg builds I could partially recommend them but no way with this one.

Showcase / 1/100 Bael
« on: September 29, 2017, 08:27:56 PM »
A new client wanted a Bael with the same weathering I gave the Lupus not to long ago, so I obliged.
During this build my compressor and spray booth both died, but what really made this take so much longer than I anticipated was the weathering.

The WIP can be found here and here.

Showcase / 1/100 MG Freedom 2.0
« on: September 16, 2017, 06:13:57 AM »
My 2nd Freedom 2.0 commission and this client wanted it in a orange X wing color scheme which I ended up really liking except for making the face plate white. Making it white really doesn't go with the light gray crest and chin pieces.

Showcase / 1/100 MG Astray Blue Frame
« on: August 27, 2017, 09:13:02 PM »
Another commission another Astray (I like the Astray but come on).
This one was quite the pain from the metal decals (which I will always advise never using) which had to be replaced to having to work on numerous extras that I have been holding on to for months. These included entirely metal weapons and stuff I had to strip paint from.

Showcase / 1/100 Dynames
« on: August 19, 2017, 05:55:17 PM »
This White Dingo inspired commissioned Dynames was a real breath of fresh air that turned out to be the most enjoyable build I have done all year.
WIP is here.

Showcase / 1/100 MG Wing Zero Custom
« on: August 05, 2017, 04:57:28 AM »
Another client another Wing Zero.
Finally was able to try those third party feather addons that I have been seeing on ebay for like a decade.
They look nice but their fragility is pretty bad.

Showcase / 1/100 Barbatos Lupus
« on: July 23, 2017, 01:59:51 AM »
Another commission and man was this one a pain.
This client was similar to my other ones in that he was also very particular and indecisive but what made this worse was that he wasn't good at explaining what he wanted. This took a simple build and made it a headache.

Here is the WIP part 1 and part 2
