[WIP] 1/100 VP Infinite Justice Part 3

Started painting. I had to check the net for some paint color references.
Luckily this time, masking tape did not pull off any primer/paint, unlike what happened when I was building the Neograde Strike Freedom.

[WIP] HG Blu Duel / Verde Buster

Done painting both kits, some areas need some touch up though. Panel lining next, then final flat coating.

Blu Duel's color used from the HG Duel Gundam Assault Shroud paint set.
Verde Buster color was custom mixed.

[WIP] HG Verde Buster Gundam Part 1

Some updates. I've decided to include the HG Verde Buster Gundam as well. I snap fitted this kit a few years back when it was just released, lots of sprue cut marks and seamlines.

I made some modifications to some areas:
- Lengthen head by a little bit
- Increased neck height
- Widen chest area
- Increased waist height
- Increased thighs height
- Changed to Strike Noir's feet
- Cut some parts for easy painting

Problems revealed by the primer corrected as well.

Now it's ready for painting!!!

Thanks for looking!

[WIP] 1/100 VP Infinite Justice Part 1

Did not have much free time recently to update this blog as I was quite busy with work...
But managed to squeeze out time to do this kit every now and then.

I took a few hours to remove the nubs for a quick test fit. Fitting problems arms and feet resin parts. Big gap on the chest part. The 2 cannons on the backpack fitted loosely. Some surface defects on certain parts.

[Review] 1/100 Infinite Justice Conversion

Here's a short review on Super-G recast VP Infinite Justice conversion. A MG Infinite Justice is required for the inner frame and flight pack. This conversion kit mainly concentrates on replacing the armour part pieces, not much changes to the flight pack except for the top 2 cannons.

Usual boxing from Super-G with a lousy out of focus photo pasted on the top.
Contents consist of:
- Plastic bag of parts, divided into multiple segments.
- 2 photo references of completed kit (Clear and sharp photos)
- 1 piece instruction manual
- Water-slide decal of stencils
- 1 small sheet of silver sticker (metal decal?)
- 2 metal beam sabres with clear beams

More details of this kit below

[Review] 1/100 Sword Calamity Conversion Part 2

After some slicing and dicing, test-fitted onto MG Freedom inner frame.
I found the nubs were kind of large, quite a bit of care needed when cutting them. Fitting was quite good, most parts went onto the frame without much problem, except for a few areas:

- Arm piece might have shrunk during casting, cracked when inserted onto the frame. Insert pla-plates inside the crack to widen it.
- Connecting joints from backpack to the swords too weak. Sliced off pegs and strengthen with brass rod inside.
- Warped swords.

More cleaning up of the surface will be needed before I proceed on to priming. I foresee a sanding and masking nightmare ahead......
Overall, I would rate this kit 7.5/10 for the casting and ease of fitting.
Thanks for looking!

[Review] 1/100 Sword Calamity Conversion Part 1

Here's a short open box review on the Neograde Sword Calamity Conversion kit recasted by Super-G. Bought it from Hong Kong during my trip there. This conversion kit uses MG Freedom as the base kit.

Boxing looks nice and sturdy, photos on the top and side weren't of the best quality, but it's the contents inside that matters.

Some background info about this Gundam. This conversion kit portrays the 2nd unit out of 3 units of Sword Calamity Gundams built. Piloted by Edward Harrelson of the Earth Alliance, which donned his markings of a rose and two swords that make a X on top of the rose on the left shoulder.

Celestial Being - Gundam Meisters

Ok, I admit the title doesn't seems appropriate. Gundam Meisters refer to the pilots. LOL
Well, instead of the pilots, I have their Gundams!!! So this post deserves larger pictures

HG Seravee Gundam

And FINALLY!! I have completed the final one!

This one was straight OOB, scribed some extra panel lines on some areas.
Not easy filling the seams on Seraphim. Seam lines running through whole halves of the parts.
I couldn't get an exact color match for the green for the chest, but the color I mixed out turned out quite nice.

HG Cherudim Gundam

3rd Celestial Being Gundam completed! HG 1/144 Cherudim Gundam

Not much modifications done, except a neck extension by 1mm. Original head was too low.
Decals went on nicely this time    d(^^)b
