Pretty Exia and pretty glass base as well, but that’s not the focus of this post XD
I’m currently fascinated by gunplas at the moment. Making one takes up much time and patience, but its somewhat rewarding to make your own figure from scratch.
Currently I am eyeing the MG 00-Seven sword and might repaint it with a different color. Its somewhat weird to have mechas lined up on my shelf and all of them are color blue XD
Will also get this MG Delta Plus just because it looks awesome
Building gunpla takes some imagination as well. Some builders add some color into them to make it distinct or to resemble other characters like these two examples from above.
People can also go for the less strenuous route and go for “straight build”. Straight build entails that the gunpla’s colors aren’t changed or even not painted at all. I never said that straight build is the lazy route because you will still need to do paneling. In competitions, paneling is very important in straight build categories since there isn’t much to look at such as custom paints or add-ons. Straight build tests your skill when it comes to simply building the gunpla. Requires much needed patience.
Of course you can opt to go color it, and add additional parts to your gunpla as well.
I’ve learned a lot from building gunpla lately like topcoatting or even something as basic as proper painting. I still will blog about figures, games, and the much promised artbook reviews that I told you guys about. To be honest, I’m still lacking on a narrow focus with the blog. Hopefully by September I would have decided on the official content and the domain name XD.
