Off topic.

Well here is an off topic update, wich im making because i was reading an other blog latley. The blog topic was about the unity we have in our intrests, but at the same time how diffrent we are induvidualy. And i share the the opinions wich i heard there. Some people post only once or twice every week, some only once a month, some people pst only about models there building and some about everything thats about gundam.

The blog i was reading is about a bunch of people who are communicating longer than me about gundam and other stuff. I hope that this blog can do a bit off the same. I like to hear people's opinion about my models and their advices. Altough im not posting as much as i want (and maybe as much as you want) but i think, if i do some more effort i can do some more posting and hopefully you'll like it.

Well i think i'll stop here for the moment and hope to hear some of you're opinions. Maybe you dont like me talking about stuff like this hahahaha.
To all my readers : thanks for reading and that you'll continu it and keep commenting.

RVF-25 part 2

Well as i promissed i would make the plane a bit more colourfull.
So here are sme pictures without the decals.
And here it comes the extra pieces added are the one and only super parts, wich can be equiped with at least the 4 main macross models.
With the decals on it it will be an awesome fighter.

I forgot to mention in my last message that i wont transform this green radarloving fighter model to his battdroid mode or gearwalk.
This all beacuse of my narrow free time, got so many kits to build hahaha.

Well some pictures with more detail than the first 2 i took.

I did not put the radar dish on it so you can see the super parts better.

Rear view of the fighterplane.

Under the wing look.

Dont mind the background.

And now when i just posted al the pictures i found out the i forgot to put the large boosters on the wings (feeling pretty dumb now).
You will eventually see them in the new updates.
I also have to make a photocabinet where i can put my models in for photosessions, but thats an issue wich can wait.

non gundam model : RVF-25 part 1

Next to my Aegis and Zaku project im doing a macross model and since my poll showed some intrest in non gundam models i will do one.
Im doing a bit more information about this ones since most of the readers won't reconize it(at least that's what i think).

The RVF-25 is a plane/battroid/gearwalk of the pilot Luca from the macross frontier serie.
Luca is the pilot who gatters most of the info on the battelfield (take a look at his machine and you'll see why).
He also has 3 non piloted planes with him wich are for information gathering and more(you should really see the serie).
These planes are called ghosts and there about 1/3 the size of the RVF-25.
I really like the models from macross frontier, the look really agile an fast.
And on top of that all of the 5 main models are really unique in their own way.
My favorite the RVF-25 of course is the one that is used for mainly information gathering and back-up.

Here is a picture of my model without the decals and panel lines.

As you can see its really plain without the decals and panel lines.
Well to cheer you guys up, ill give you the promise i will add even more than just the decals and panel lines.
For the ones who have already seen the series, they probably know what im talking about.

Now lets talk about the model itself.
Its really good detaild and has many small parts. the transformation construction is good at most of the sections, except for some like the nose piece.
The nose piece looks a bit loose if you touch it.
And i have to say that the legs are a real pain in the ass. they are hanging on the waist and are a bit to heavy to stay in place.
They should have come up with some sort of locking mechanism.
And the last big bummer the gun given to the RVF-25 cant be put underneath the fighter, it has a fin underneath wich makes it impossible (it would have looked so good)
Next to those minor bits there are many good ones wich make up for the poor.
And one of them is that each part can be put real tight next to the other one, and i mean real tight!
Another good point is that the model is a challenge to build, its really diffrent compared to a gundam.

This is it for the first part i will post the next part as soon as possible.

Aegis in uprise.

Well cant wait to long with some news.
I started with airbrushing some of my aegis parts with tamyia paint.
And it is 300% better than the createx paint i got with the airbrush.
I cant rub it off as i could do with createx paint.
The only thing now thats bothering me a bit is that, tamyia paint is more expensive than createx and painting 1/100 model takes a hole lot more paint than a 1/144 (gm group-build). So still searching for some soluitions.
Here are 2 pics i took of the painted parts.

Also the poll i posted has came to its end, and the results are :
yes 7
no 3
not sure 1
doesnt bother me.. 5

Well since "not sure" and "doesnt bother me" are a bit 50/50 answers, ill split the total and of the points and spread them equaly over yes and no.
That means yes gets 3 point more and no to.
And that will bring the final score on : YES 10 points NO 6 points.
A big diffrence and i will posts some messages of models from other series.

Still Gundam wil keep the upperhand on this blog, stay tuned...
