WIP: 0 Gundam and Blue Destiny

I've finished these two last week. Planning to do the painting before the year ends.


I had fun building the SD kit. Finished it before completing the HGUC. I sort of needed a break I guess even though the HG kit was not that difficult to finish.



And here's the little guy.



The Blue Destiny has nice proportions, and the parts are almost completely color accurate.



My camera (Sony T20)hasn't been cooperative lately. It has been having a lot of corrupted images recently. In one instance, all the images were completely deleted. I guess I need a new memory card. Would like to have a new camera but I don't have the budget.


Decent articulation on the shoulders/arms. Not so much on the legs though.


Really looking forward to finishing these two before the New Year.



Latest supplies.


Next project on my want-list is the MG Victory. Just waiting for the hobby stores to have it here. I need to get my hands on an MG kit!

First SD Gundam

I've been wanting to display a gundam on my office desk. I figured a cute Super Deformed would be a nice choice.


I received some Gift Certificates recently, and one of the accredited merchants is Toy Kingdom. I was choosing netween MG Wing ver. Ka and the regular MG Exia. But I used some of the GCs buying other stuff so I settled for an SD kit.



The manual has a lot of interesting pictures.


Kit has a total of three runners. I was surprised at the selection of Gundam kits at Toy Kingdom (I was at the Mall of Asia). They have a lot of MGs, the latest HGUCs and BB Senshi, and tons of Gundam Decals available too. They also have the 30th Anniversary Version of SD RX 78-2, and it was a bit pricey for an SD kit.


They don't give change when you use a GC so I had to get this (expensive) Gashapon keychain of FMA Brotherhood. The SD kit costs 399.75 pesos and the GC is worth 500 pesos (about 10 to 11 USD), so I picked up Edward which costs 150. I bet this tiny keychain costs less at Otaku stores in Greenhills. I have to finish my Blue Destiny then i'll work on this SD kit. This would probably take about less than 2 hours to build.
