  1. In Combat – Future Wars #3 (AMIG6086) ISBN: 8432074060864 Ammo by Mig Jiménez Whether you call them Gundams or Mechas, they’re still gigantic robots that are piloted by young and adventurous folks, battling against evil as the Earth Federation, or for the baddies under the evil Principality of Zeon banner. Just to confuse the issue further, the model kits of these giant robots are often referred to as Gunpla, a portmanteau of the words Gundam and Plastic. This book is the third in a series of volumes that describes and teaches modellers how to bu
  2. I have been a bit busy getting my push iron ready to start a new job in 4 weeks, it's close to home so will be cycling to work, 7 miles each way..... Gulp. As I was rummaging through box's I came across this old kit I built years ago when it was first released, its the OVA version and I though it was time to show it some love. I have lost all the extra parts like the other unicorn horns and amo packs and the horn I have is bent and broken but we will see what I can do with it. The plan is to paint in a few shades of white and grey and re color the pink phycoframe green to match the 1/35 bust I
  3. Okay so now my sculpture project is done I am planning on doing another sculpture, but before that I just want to do a bit of "normal" modelling! IMG_20200511_112948 by Nick Frost, on Flickr I really like the Hi Mock, as soon as I saw it I really wanted one and after doing a build for a friend I took two of them and the weapon set as payment and they've been sat in my stash ever since. The plan for this custom build is to build it as a 1/35 mech; first time I saw one I thought it would be cool to leave off the dome head and have an exposed pilot figure, so thats wh
  4. I couldn't resist the temptation of starting this so I just put the inner frame together, an amazing bit of kit with so many amazing details tucked away.
  5. This is a 3rd party Chinese kit that is very much like building a MG 1/100 kit from Bandai but this is in the much bigger scale of 1/60. I think this is a great idea and works really well. There was no real problems putting the kit together ( other than me loosing a main frame part). Painted and weathered in a very standard gundam style. C&C wellcome. Cheers Brian.
  6. I have wanted to build a large scale gundam ages and the Astray has always been a one of my favourite mobile suits, I had a Daban 1/60 in the stash for a good while but sold it when I found out this version was going to get released. This version of the Astray look more like a RG or MG kit from Bandai and has slightly fewer parts than a normal PG kit from Bandai and is a lot sleeker looking, the bandai kit is just a bit fat! The plan is to snap the kit together as there is likely to be some fitting issues. loose parts that will need fixing and once that's all sorted I will be painting par
  7. Probably one of my favourites none Zeon mobile suits the Astray Red Frame and this bust from motorking is really nice looking kit, it did take a bit if faffing around to get it all to fit and lit up but I like the results. I have intensionaly left it gloss for that factory fresh look. Comments welcome. Cheers Brian.
  8. My next build is a bit of an odd one yes it's Gundam related but it just the head of the Astray Red Frame made by motor King in 1/35 scale so it a farly big kit, it comes with some metal parts, water decals and a set of LED lights to fit. With a bit of luck I plan on keeping this a nice clean build, more to come as I work through this.
  9. Hello and welcome. This area of Britmodeller is new ground to me I have been stalking a few builds over here recently looking for inspiration on building Gundam suits. (Excuse me if my terminology is a bit off I’m new to these kits). I’m finding some good WIP builds but nothing that goes through step by step like what I’m used to on the other side, mainly it’s finished kits or finished parts, not a bad thing but I was looking for a WIP that might help me build THIS. . I was gifted this lovely looking kit by a work friend on my birthday in April who has far too many in the stash.
  10. My latest kit is finished the name come from the use of gundam parts from the 1/100 MG Strike Gundam. A good number of other kits were used to make this flying car. I have also changed the inside of the car to a 2 seater and the there are a few other small changes to the car other than all the jet engines. I really enjoyed this one, there were plenty of challenges but it end up being ok. Comments wellcome. Cheers Brian.
  11. In the Dark... This is a collaboration project between myself and Ben Winter-Giles (@bengunstagram on IG). Titled "In the Dark...", it tells of our ideas, efforts and creativity come to life, when no one's looking, Toy Story style. The build took just over four months and is designed to be of two parts, with each to be kept by the respective modeller but able to be re-united for competitions and displays. Each an epic display in its own right but together they tell the story of how two artists, from different genres, with different styles, utilising differe
  12. This is the special Ops full assault RX-79-G. For when you need all your fire ready to go. I normally add lot of decals and weather my gundam kits but not this time. I tried out lots of paint fade, shadow and general colour modulating, to bring out the details, I had some fun. This the old kit so there's not much in the way of movement from the joints but it's still a great looking kit, if you can get one cheep it's recommended.
  13. Another kit bash this one. I'm pleased with how it turned out. Cheers Brian.
  14. Finally got some paint on the MEGA 1/48 kit – so that it's not just all white. Some black pre-shading and then white over that. I then masked off a bunch of parts and sprayed various shades of gray. Followed that up w/ a layer of Future gloss and am working through the many decals now! Speaking of decals... Does anybody have a sheet of the decals for this kit that they're not using? PLEASE!?!??!? I tore a few and it's going to drive me crazy if I don't find replacements. I'm building the "GFT" version of the Mega 1/48 kit. I would be more than happy to pay you for them if you're willing to
  15. Well, finished this one up a while ago but am finally getting around to posting here on "Ready for Inspection". I enjoyed getting to be a bit heavy-handed with the weathering techniques. I found the toughest part of the build for me was masking all the parts for their initial paint job. I used Mig Jimenez's "In Combat" book to guide me through the weathering steps. Album on Flickr
  16. After seeing the awesome builds by RPC and Wouter, I decided to take the plunge and throw a bit of glue and paint at my first Gundam model.. I picked the 1/44 scale RCX-76-02 Guncannon, Mainly due to its old school military look, and the idea that I would alter the colour scheme from the customary grey blue to something a little more 'earthy'. so without further adieu I present my version of the RCX-76-02.
  17. Hi Folks, Aile Strike is my fav. Gundam. I'n not a huge Seed series fan but Aile Strike look always fantastic to me. I've buil the mg version before. Now its the time to start the beast
  18. seems im forever doing things red or white! so this build will be the big boy, im hoping to have it done in 6 months to take to telford. its the sazabi ver ka kit, with both infinite dimension resin upgrade sets(ID are the rolls royce of resin upgrades the 2 sets cost me 200 quid) ive also got a full set of metal thrusters and pipes and ive got huge sheet of photoetch for this kit. il be braking the kit into 3 parts(legs and waist, upper body, backpack and the shield and weapons) that way il have less chance of losing a part and will stop me from getting bored. ive not started yet as i
  19. Hi this is a just a quick build I did for use with a 1/144 scale Gundam tank that I don't have yet but had the building kicking about for ages so I thought I would build the base, the ground level of the building was a kit and I added everything else. Thanks for looking Brian. WIP will continue as I get the kit I want to add later. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235051648-the-08th-ms-team-checkpiont/
  20. I have had this building kicking about for ages so I thought I would build it up with in intension of adding a ground type MS in the fashion of The 08th MS team. So the building looked a bit like a shop so I have made a few changes added generator on the roof and some long and short range comms.
  21. Ok it looks like we have an alternative to massively high priced Bandai Xamel ( if you can find one). It's a 3rd party kit from Motor King, I built there 1/100 Zaku tank a bit back HERE if you want to take a look. It had its problems but nothing a bit basic modelling couldn't sort out. Looks like its more a 1/144 scale kit not the MG its supposed to be but that OK with me as it looks fantastic. For sale at the usale places but some more info here. http://www.gundammodelcenter.com/yms-16m-xamel-gundam-central
  22. Hello all Im always still digging for info in the world of sci-fi models. I used to play the “Battletech RPG” when I was younger. Does anyone make the mechs as scale models ? Ive seen the metal figurines online. Theyre nice however I'm looking for actual models to build and customize ? Do anyone of the Gundam makers do anything ? Or will i have to just buy a larger Gundam and modify it ? Either way Id be looking for bigger than 1/100 scale as i could adapt parts or stand it next to figures of an approximate size. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance. Dennis
  23. I have been meaning to build a Z'gok, have a go at some water and build my own trees for ages, so i thought i might as well have a go at all three at once. I really enjoyed making the wire trees, the resin i usec for the water did cause a few small issues but all in all i enjoyed this one a lot. Well i hope you like it and your comments are all wellcome. Cheers Brian.
  24. Hi guys, well it's been a while since I posted anything, but I've finally got round to finishing my Zaku kit. I put it together before Christmas and I've attached a picture of what the Gundam looked like before I started with the Slave 1 paint scheme. The plan was to use it as practice for trying out the paints for my Finemolds 1/72 Slave 1 kit. I hope you like how it turned out.
  25. This is a very old HG, i snapped it together last night in about 20mins and i now have a few possible ideas for the kit. I will be scribing lots a new panel lines but i might also put him in some water. Here is is for now. He might be an old kit but he still look cool.
