Grand Theft Auto 5

Alright... the title is pretty much self-explanatory.

I bought it on a whim(I didn't even pre-order it). Everyone was just talking about the game and luckily(sort of), I wemt to the shop, bought the game, walked out. Even better, it came with the pre-order Atomic Blimp bonus.

So yeah... I have to say, I got hooked and the gunplas will be put aside temporarily. But who knows, I might do some in-between gaming. :)

Quick Update today #01.1

Yes, I'm still working on it, fortunately, on a daily basis.

I'm taking it slowly... prime some 25+ pieces a day then let it dry for 24 hours. So the following day, I would paint it with my desired colour. Simple as. :)

At first, the gold part didn't look as I thought it would but after a while, I got used to it and looked quite alright. I wont be using the aluminium as the base because the gold colour doesn't turn up/materialize (sorry, can't find the proper word for it) too well and takes a lot of paint to actually see it on top so I'm trying out the white base colour.

So far it's looking fine. Will update again once I got the right arm finish. Or probably even before that.

PG Gundam Astray Red Frame ver.2 #01

Alright... continuing from my 2010 post here about airbrushing my first ever Gunpla, the Perfect Grade Gundam Astray Red Frame.

Somehow, I stopped doing it after I finished airbrushing the shield. So starting with this post, I'm going to finish the whole model this time since I don't really have anything else to build. My other un-built gunplas are packed in a box and they're in the storage somewhere.

I'm going to keep the same colour scheme except for the inner frame which I will (try to at least) paint in gold instead of dark red(default colour of the frame).

This was taken back in 2009... 4 years(!!) already.

And another with the Gerbera Straight Sword w/ Shield.

Ryofu Gundam #5 Final!!

Finally completely finished with it. It took a bit longer to make due to me masking, painting anddrying some parts.

The flying platform was quite an experience and I also have to mentioned that metallic colour paint looks really nice. I also bought some canned spray from Amazon... they are made by Hycote and seems to work pretty well on plastic surface and most of all, it's f*ckin cheap @ ~£4.50 for a 400ml can.

And so, here's the final pic. :)

The platform actually has 4 different styles/forms depending on who you combine it with. The current one in the picture isn't really the one for LuBu but I like it that way. :)

As for my next one... I don't know yet although I really want to buy and build one RG Gundam kit. We'll see. Not sure when that's going to be. :)
