MG Jesta FWS (flight.weapon.system.type)

This year is coming to an end. Decided to take a look back into my gunpla days. This was the only gunpla which i manage to complete this year as i had many things going on for me. Will definitely try to be more productive next year. Who knows.. maybe another run at GBWC? 

Anyway this kit wasn't too difficult to do. Its basically just applying the same skills as what i did with the Sinanju Stein. Took apart some old toys to use as spare parts for this project. as you can more or less tell which part comes from which model kit.

Thanks for viewing. May 2015 be a better year!

MG Jesta wip

So I wanted to do a souped up jesta custom. Took some references and concepts from modelers around. Seems like everyone is doing their own version of a jesta cannon Or some souped up jesta with lots of big guns.

So I decided to do a high speed jesta type. At first I thought maybe a stark jesta was cool but I started adding more stuff to the backpack and ended up with this. 

Definitely needs more detail though.. You guys can probably already guess what parts were used for this pack LOL..

The leg armor was rather bare. So decided to add a little bit of detail to it. Seeing from these wips, it seems like my basics are still not there yet.. Can't scribe perfect lines.. Guess enough practice will lead to perfection. I'm going on a short gundam break.. My nation needs me. Hopefully when i get back, I will still have the motivation and drive to carry on. Till then, watch this space!

MSN-36S Shinigami (Sinanju Stein variant)

Finally done! I give to you, my entry for this year's GBWC, The MSN-36S Shinigami. With this kit, I went back to basics. Thing I hate most was scribing panel lines. But with this kit, I really forced myself to do it. I felt I needed to get out of my comfort zone if not I never be able to move forward.

Since the Unicorn Gundam was based on the Sinanju Stein, I decided to give it a psycoframe which looks similar to the Unicorn Gundam. But of course, nothing as complex as the Unicorn Gundam

Always thought the regular Stein gun wasn't very sexy and since I have 2 rezel cannons to spare, put them together, you have yourself a ready made BFG. It still looks kinda skinny so I decided to use the stein beam rifle as well to make this a thicker feel.

Base looks familiar? Its actually inspired by Toymakers ground work! Since the Shinigami is already full on psycoframed... why not psycoframe the base too! Special thanks to Waylander on giving tips on how to achieve that rocky type surface effect! If you don't already know, these 2 guys are super talented modelers based in Singapore. If you don't already know them, do watch their space! You will definitely learn a thing or two. 

A Dendrobium was killed in the process. Mechanical chain bases were already going out of style.

And it is done. I've really learnt a lot from this project. And from here on out it is only going to get tougher. Again, just wanna give thanks to my family and friends for all the support and patience! You know who you are! Without you guys I would definitely not have been able to finish this one. it was a really fun and good learning experience!
