Moar Gundam 00 Gunpla Poisons!

ORZ.... I just ORZ.... Onore BANDAI!!!! DX

A sudden bombardment by Bandai for next Gundam 00 gunplas O_o

HG 1/144 Astraea Type F
April release, 1,890 Yen

I should have expected this when I saw 1/100 Astraea LOL.. Altho we've being milked with 00 variations.. now Bandai have make their next move and spams Exia variations across all its Side Stories variation DX before the upcoming new Gundam 00 Movie ^^;;.... But.. this guy got loads of weapons O_o...

HG 1/144 1 Gundam
May release, 1,890 Yen

This one is kinda literally slapped my face lolz.. Didnt expected that they going to release Ai (1) Gundam ORZ... No pic of the prototype yet.. ^^;;

HG 1/144 Avalanche Exia
June release, price TBA.

I was very lucky that didnt buy 1/100 Exia Avalance since I kinda like the design... dunno why didnt bought tho lolz.. With Astraea Type F... comes 1/144 HG Gundam Avalance Exia.. I think Bandai now focused more on 1/144 scale rather than 1/100.. I wonder why.. Its like they have abandon it ^^;;

G.F.F. Metal Composite O Gundam (Type A.C.D)
Tamashii Web Shop limited item. Summer release, 8,190 Yen (inclusive of tax).

Didnt expected 0 Gundam would have GFF Metal Composite by Hajime Katoki-sama ^^;;... Im not really keen on this GFF thinggy.. the price is kinda high.. and I wonder what the scale is this one... I think gonna pass this one tho ^^;;

Theres also some other MG and HG that Bandai will release soon.... Im not really interested tho ^^ but Not expected they going to release MG Wing Gundam (TV Ver) lol..

And NO... I will not pre-order these upcoming kits... lolz.. but somehow will get it after it released.. Also YES I poisoned, but with bunch of pre-ordered stuff that I made before ... I will stop pre-order stuffs for now especially gunpla ^^;;... Not to mention that I have some of Backlogs that I need to do... plus the lack of space to keep my gunplas and stuffs... So I need to sort out these first ^^

All pictures, release date and price are jacked from NgeeKhiong

Quite a while that I bought so many stuffs XD all this cost a bit tho lol...

Aurora sticker, Im quite surprised how small the sticker is ORZ
and it cost RM8 and I bought two ^^;; the sticker size is only 5.5cm x 4.5cm v_v

Small knife ^^, I bought this since Chubbybots said its easier to use this than Hobby Knife to cut the plaplate ^^

Caution Waterslide Decal, got for 1/144 and 1/100 Scale..
not sure can be used on MG Wing Gundam Ka or not,
hope the caution almost same with the one that came with MG Wing Gundam Ka ^^;;

Ah... I have been planning to get this long time ago.. now just got chance to buy it ^^
Tamiya Compound Set, got 3 grade level, Coarse, Fine and Finish.. Forgot to get some polishing cloth ^^;;

Since I already have Black and Earth Enamel color for panel lining, why not get Gray color.. and I bought this one Tamiya Enamel X-19 Smoke, Its a lil bit darker then Gray and a bit lighter than Dark Gray ^^

With this Gaianotes Clear Yellow Lacquer paint.. I now have complete set of clear color nyahahaha
Clear Green, Clear Blue, Clear Red, Clear Yellow :D, what color else did I missed?

Water Slide decal wont be perfect without this, Mr. Mark Softer ^^ not sure if I bought the right one or not LOL, theres 2 of Mark type.. Mark Setter and Mark Softer.. will do research bout this.. but I think I got the right one, ne? ^^;;

Most important item for every Airbrush user.. An empty bottle ^^, well.. its to keep mixed paint or thinned paint that ready to be used for Airbrushing :D

The smallest round brush that I have now.. the size is 00, great for applying panel wash and for painting tiny details ^^

Last one is Tamiya Pla-Plate set :D, I bought this one coz It have various thickness in one package.. got 0.3mm x2, 0.5mm x2 and 1.2mm x1 ^^

Most of this Im going to use for my current project *cough* Reborns and Wing Ka *cough* ^^;;

MG GN-X GETTO! 2nd Loots of the year!

Another loots for 2010 ^^

This is my first order from, I usually order from Hobby Link Japan but now switched to since they started English site for international buyer ^^. The reason why I switched to Amiami because I got interested with their unbeatable discount XD (10~20%).

I'm very satisfied with the service that they provide altho that the system is not that good that I'm used to with Hobby Link Japan. using Email type service which is kinda good for me but theres also downside with it ^^. I like coz we actually communicate with their staff on business that we had with them but sometimes we have to wait for their reply that could takes days ^^;; ... Also not like HLJ, Amiami not allow buyer to cancel pre-order once confirmed, a lil bit downside but I dont really mind since they got nice discounts.

So far I dont have problem with their service, pretty good for my first ^^.. They offer EMS and SAL for shipment, SAL they just enable recently with extra 700 yen for registered SAL (normal one dont have) and including handling cost ^^..

Enuf with Amiami Intro ... lets took a look with the loots lol

My First 00 Master Grade ~ MG Exia Ignition Mode!

Amiami gave a nice discount 25% off which is 3,664 yen (5,000 yen original) - awesome!
Ive been waiting for this like ages and since my local seller when i pre-order this guy last year was too bz and always missing in action so i decided to buy this from Amiami instead.. pluss more cheaper ^^

My second 00 Master Grade ~ MG GN-X!

Amiami also gave sweet discount for this guy 25% end up with 2,640 yen (3,600 yen original) - woot
Most anticipated MG for 00 series which is unexpected to released as MG form... I really like the design ^^

My first HGUC ~ HGUC ReZEL !

Amiami gave this guy 25% off = 1,465 yen (2,000 yen original) - nice!
Its kinda my random get for HGUC also kinda like the color and design XD... eh~ anyone said erected gundam? lol

Also plus with HGUC ReZEL I got prize item (gift?) a plastic paper holder XD really nice quality and nice print lol... I gave it to my sis XD she love it haha

All total loot is 7,769 yen (RM 296) excluding shipment ^^

At first I chose SAL for shipment which is cost 2,780 yen and the total is 10,549 yen (RM 400) but Amiami starts Shipping Half-off Promotion for this month (Feb) and they use EMS instead of SAL - the cost for EMS is 4,000 yen and with the promotion applies its 2,000 yen instead.... and with the amount I pay, its sufficient to use it and they changed it.. XD.. and refund me the balance.. its cool and nice~ lol ^^ for my first time EMS, I say its FAST... took 4 days to arrive, but my area post office is closed for weekend so today I got it... lolz

Thanks Amiami for great service and awesome promotion XD hope u guys doing this always muahaha.. XD

WISP MG Wing Gundam Ver. Ka Part 5

Its been near 2 Weeks with no new post lol.... Im slacking off booo XD

Okay.. Ive completed build the Weapons Unit... but forgot to take some pics when I built them lol

This time going to cover on Panel Wash for this guy...

Whats is Panel Wash... well.... Panel Wash is Instead using Gundam Marker, or Copic Liner pen.. we using Enamel Paints to panel line the kit... Wash means here we flow the paints into the panel lines ^^ not sure if this helps coz Im kinda sucks at explaining ^^;;

Here I use Tamiya Enamel XF-25 Earth and X-1 Black, along with usual Zippo for thinning the paint.. Im kinda random for mixing it .. as long its not too thick and too thin... just good for flowing the paint into the panel lines

First I tips into the lines using small brush, and let the paint flows along the lines.. if it not flowing the paints might too thick and need more thinning ^^

after that using cotton swab with a lil bit Zippo, sweep the excess paints agains the line..

Now u get nice panel lines ^^

Here some of Panel Wash that I've done

I had fun doing it and for some reason yet kinda funny.. my panel wash kinda do some weathering lol ^^;;

Comparison before and after panel wash

and some extra pics lol

Now left only is Top Coat this guy... will do it sometime today XD, but I need suggestion.. Should I put the warning stickers and decals or not? ... But I think its its already good.. and I kinda hate stickers lol

Next MG project will announce later lol... but I think u guys already knew it XD

Reborns have to wait a lil bit more.. hehe...

Until next post!

Jya ne~
