What I've been up to lately

Well, this are the thing I've been up to lately. I apologize for the lack of continuity in my blog. I started the MC Hi-Nu and never got to posting WIP part 2 for the kit. XP Right now I really don't have the luxury of time so the progress on my kits are ever so slow. Once it's July I think I'll be working on different kits on different phases of WIP at the same time (modding 1 kit, sanding another and painting another one). Anyway, just to keep my viewers interested, here's what I've been up to lately.

I'm sure you recognize this guy XP

I've also "kitbashed" a Rx-78 SCM. EX figure to a 1/144 00 gundam. The SCM EX series of banpresto has very articulated figures, they only have a small range of figures but the articulation just blew me away

I've also recently joined the forum "Gundam Eclipse", I've been warmly welcomed and thank the admin for accepting me. I joined the forum under the name NexusPrime20. I joined the forum  to join their "Summer War Contest", a gundam competition that ENCOURAGES modifications. So this is the competition for me, I've always told Sir Vanz Hilario that "I don't know how to make a clean build, I MUST ALWAYS have mods on my kit" XP  hahaha, so this is my entry for GE's Summer contest (apparently it's summer in the US)

Thanks for viewing guys! XP And I'm definitely more excited to start Working on my kits again, than you are to see updates on them

A long Due update on my blog - 1/144 MC Hi-Nu Ver EA.

Long time no blog yeah? Well first of all thank you for all the followers and viewers I have though I'd hope for more interaction with you XP. No, I really do.

This is what I've been up too lately. Got really inspired looking at Master Eday's work on his 1/144 kits. So I took my MC Hi-Nu which is the missing link between the 1/100 and 1/144 scale. A perfect step to stepping down from MG to 1/144. I'm also taking this kit as "warm-up" for BKMWC this year. Hopefully I could finish this and actually reach the point of painting  this kit (the last kit I panted was a year ago). Still not decided what to do for this year's BMKWC. Only Sir Vanz has an idea XP.

Anyway let's move on to the reason your here in my blog

Most of my Bro's from GMAC are familiar with my MC Hi-Nu. What I did here is based on master Eday's totally AWESOME work on his 1/144 kits. I had to extend his waist upward though for about 1cm to accomodate the mods then added some piston works and koto parts. If your familiar with the kit you'll know it's about as tall as MG WZC, after the mods it's 1 head smaller than MG Blue Frame. Due to the unfinished work on the waist the back arches back because of the weight of the backpack, thankfully the fuel tanks saved the day X)

Right now I'm experiencing shortage on the koto parts I use for making the pistons. So more mods for pistons will be postponed for now. Actually there are 2 pairs of pistons here. (4pcs in total, the bigger ones cover smaller ones at the back not seen in pic). I promise better pics and a tutorial on this pistons next blog post guys XD.

Next thing I'm gonna do while waiting for the replacement of the koto parts I use for this pistons is to add pla plates to the inner torso since after the cutting the female and male peg joints in the torso can be seen and also for added strength and stability. I also need to finish the back since this gundam probably has more weight on it's back rather than the gundam itself.

and of course there's pla plating XD. That's all folks here another Pic for your enjoyment
