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

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.

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

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.

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.

i wish I had the motivation you do always have something in the works. not only that you finish kits at a tremendous pace! I like the blue color on this take of the strike with the iwsp! as I am building a mk2 titans at the moment and the mg 2.o mk 2 titans. client should be really pleased with this guy
The extra $$ is the motivation to be honest.
I have a backlog including my 3 favorite Gundam designs and haven't been able to touch them.

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.

I like the darker scheme you went with here! I have to ask did you have some troubles with the decals on this kit? it looks like they gave a little fight on the chest area a bit. I am sure you are not to blame as some times third party decals can be troublesome...I know ive had my share of ones that just did not go the way I planned. overall I love the look of this build..i need a 2.o zeta as well.
The third party decals my client gave me for this build were really strange, there were little bubbles all throughout the sheet. I tried numerous times to slice into the bubbles and have softer melt them down but they still persisted.

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.

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.

Really love the creativity put into this and the gradients really make it pop.

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.

Another great job Shiro,your clients sure like different colours compared to the norm,do you ever make and paint for kits for yourself? If so I would love to see them.
I don't have the time or space to do theirs and mine at the same time and since I have a queue of commissions I haven't been able to really do any kits for myself besides the GP04.

Showcase / 1/100 MG Freedom 2.0

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.
