  1. 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 what I'm going top do. And its been a very long time since I mucked about with rust effects, so this is going to be a very weathered rusty mech with worn paint and chips galore! First thing I did, just to get a feel for the mech and whats possible, was to snip it all from the sprue tidy up the nubs with a scalpel and sandpaper then snap it together. For a lot of the bits I know I'll probably be taking apart again I reamed out the connector holes so the dont go together too tight. IMG_20200511_112934 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20200511_115812 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20200511_120118 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20200511_120601 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20200511_122415 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20200511_122608 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20200511_172836 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20200511_195417 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20200511_205536 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20200512_140901 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20200512_141616 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Also as I said I have the weapon set, not 100% what ones I'm going to use (or how, might chope them up) so I got them together too, they are pretty crazy th giant hammer is pretty hilarious! IMG_20200513_102126 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20200511_205739 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20200512_160442 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20200512_143018 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20200512_143229 by Nick Frost, on Flickr But the main weapon Im definitely interested in is the mini gun IMG_20200513_101544 by Nick Frost, on Flickr IMG_20200513_101610 by Nick Frost, on Flickr Sooo my thoughts so far are that that I'm thinking the chain gun is a bit bulky so I'm going to lose a hand and have half the barrel sticking directly out of his wrist with one of the ammo drums on the side, and a shield for the other arm. For now though I want to sort out a pilot figure which I'll bash and sculpt, so next up I'll start cutting out a recess into his chest through the neck to make a cockpit. Thanks for looking, more soon
  2. 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.
  3. 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 parts of the kit, for a fresh clean looking build. If your interested in the kit I got mine from here: Astray Promo picture. As I don't believe in following the instructions I made a start on the twin swords and already made the a small modification so both swords can be mounted on one hip rather than one on each side. These parts whent together very well some but not all parts are under gated and just the gold part on the top of the scabbard is loose. I will build the beam gun and shield next. These were a paint to clean up but look great onec in place. Hobby knife for scale......... My photos should improve a bit as I have just splashed out on a new huawei p20 phone, only my second phone in nearly 4 years.....
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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. I decided that this would be my next build and I’d do the WIP exactly how I do them for my other kits. It’ll be a bit photo heavy and I’ll be learning on the job. I’ve gleaned some info about how these kits go together and they seem a lot different to your regular Airfix our Tamiya kit but we shall see. I’m planing on doing a nice amount of weathering on this but I’m not sure how you go about building and painting. Folk seem to build first and paint together (alien to me) or paint in chunks frame them armour? Oh I don’t know but I do know it’ll be fun so here goes let’s open the box.... I’d be honoured if some of you guys would follow along and help me out if I’m headed in the wrong direction. Here goes.... Okey so lid off and I get another lid? Nice pic though. woah!!! There’s a lot in the box. I love the feel of this crisp Bandai plastic and the cool multi coloured trees are sublime. loads of bits and my first stumble block. I don’t know why I expected the instructions to be in English but what with Tamiya kits and the like you never know. So even still how hard can it be eh. just like Ikea. Looky that molding so crisp. I do have these too. I’m used to water slide decals and these things are?? Stickers and what looks like those run on transfers?? What is this cRaZy? right one with both feet. The first few steps sees lots of putting together and no glue? Oh my, I just don’t get it. strangely addictive though. sanding off the nub ( there’s no flash to speak of ) bits is great as the plastic is so nice. It does really scratch the plastic though. I got around this by smoothing off the rough bits with Tamiya extra thin. this part was rough as a badgers Harris but with TET it looks great. I’ll be priming and painting any how but how I don’t know yet. Quick as you like all the chest parts came together. I guess after each section gets put together I can see what needs painting then I can dismantle and paint accordingly. It’s this the usual procedure with these kits? What slightly rough bits there were I sorted out with TET. Looking sassy. And you can see how the TET has worked it’s magic in this shot. Even though it’s freaking me out that I’m not gluing any of this together yet I’m loving that all the seams are in logical places. Like here on the head. Oh man this is ace!!! The instructions (I think) ask for stickers to be put on the eyes... screw that. I’ll paint ‘em .... probably.. So here we are. Looking good. I’m really loving this so far even though it’s totally alien to me. Thanks for looking in hopefully it’s not too boring and if she turns out well others might be able to use this as a good reference point. Take care and any comments are welcome. Happy modelling. Johnny.
  8. 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.
  9. 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 different techniques, and possessed of different philosophies towards model making, come together to craft something bigger than themselves. The build features a 1/100 Bandai Master Grade Sazabi ver.Ka and Hi-Nu ver.Ka: The Sazabi (christened "Suzie-B" by her creator) features custom paint, AnchoreT propellant tanks and funnel pods, with a Mechanicore Quad Gatling gun set. The Hi-Nu (callsign "Thumper") features heavy modifications to achieve a levitating effect, and a full THE-51 resin conversion kit with photoetch, and two customised resin handguns. Both feature custom made decals to tell a Cold War, Soviet Russia vs U.S.A story. Our project was completed in time for its public debut at the Australian Capital Territory's ScaleACT-2019 expo and competition. A reveal video was also made to commemorate its public unveiling: Ben and I hope you enjoy the following pics. Thank you for looking!
  10. 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.
  11. Another kit bash this one. I'm pleased with how it turned out. Cheers Brian.
  12. 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 send them my way! Thanks for reading and happy building to all.
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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
  16. 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 wanted to have a proper spring clean of my room but heres the stuff ive got and il show some reference pics for people not familier with these upgrades... the kit is huge to start with... heres the PE set, some of it wont be used as shoulders and fuel tanks are being scrapped for resin versions. and the 2 infinite dimension resin upgrade sets, 1 is mostly the body parts, the second is a redesign of parts for the outside of legs, new backpack funnel holders, new fuel tanks and new weapons. also metal thruster set... ive also got loads of little bits of PE il add as i go and one other change is i bought of these special pipes from korea.. il be using all HIQ decals for the warnings, as i do with all my mechs now.. and i got some logo decals custom printed, so will use the sazabi and S01 logos(the actual font is white but its blick for the photo) so thats about it, probably gonna be a few weeks of cleaning and prep, so will post when i have something to show
  17. 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/
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. hay not posted much lately. just thought id share 2 third party kits coming from china soon. firstly, the nillson 1/60 red astray gundam. this to me is kinda interesting, i have the bandai 1/60 PG red astray, it looks alot bulkier than the master grade kit, alot of people like prefer the slimmer destign of the master grade, so this company called nillson has made a 1/60 kit based on the master grade design, i love this idea, perfect grade gundams to me are always over engineered and have far too many parts. other kit is sinanju 1/35 bust, by same company that did the unicorn bust. think it has 20 plus leds, decals and metal parts. i get my chinese stuff from taobao but if you dont use taobao a guy called samualdecal on facebook sells these kits and other stuff from china. https://www.facebook.com/Samueldecal/
  25. Lets start another project. I think think this suites design is one of the 5 best design in the Zeon Ms Suites. This is the original colours, i will change the colors...
