Shopping in Tokyo and Hong Kong 2017

Shopping in Tokyo and Hong Kong 2017 No updates on the MG Sniper 2 because I’ve been in Asia for the past week and a half. I had a trip to Hong Kong planned since last November. But once the news about the last days for the 1:1 Gundam in Odaiba Japan came out, the last day was actually a few days […] Source: GameraBaenre’s Blog

MG GM Sniper 2 Progress: gun works, scope works, some feet and more priming

MG GM Sniper 2 Progress: gun works, scope works, some feet and more priming It’s Monday, time for the blog post that brings everyone up to speed on last week’s Sniper work. The main focus for this update will be the sniper rifle which I finally revisit after the very first post with a half-assed slapping of a new barrel and new stock onto the sucker. In the below […] Source: GameraBaenre’s Blog

MG GM Sniper 2 Progress: Front skirts, new antenna, and some chest mods

MG GM Sniper 2 Progress: Front skirts, new antenna, and some chest mods This is going to be a fairly sizable update. This includes the work from last week as well as over the weekend. I’m starting to focus and get more and more work done as the inspiration continues. The front skirts are REALLY plain looking. Yes, it’s a grunt suit, so it should be relatively simplistic […] Source: GameraBaenre’s Blog

MG GM Sniper 2: backpack work and start to chest, shoulders, and waist mods

MG GM Sniper 2: backpack work and start to chest, shoulders, and waist mods I went almost a week without doing much work other than molding and casting the metal thrusters. They look cool, but are a pain in the ass to paint and they add a bit too much weight in comparison to a resin copy. Plus, they can get expensive if I keep buying and using them.

New project for the new year: GM Sniper 2!

New project for the new year: GM Sniper 2! What better way to start off a new year than with a brand spanking newly released Master Grade GM Sniper 2 kit? Even better is that I have the motivation and some ideas bouncing around in my head for the kit. It was released about 2 weeks ago and I got the kit late last […] Source: GameraBaenre’s Blog

End of the year home improvement project

End of the year home improvement project Happy New Year everyone! I’ve been away from any gunpla for a while because of the holidays as well as doing some home improvement projects. I’ve been living at this house for a year and slowly getting small projects done here and there. That, along with the holidays has pretty much killed all work on […] Source: GameraBaenre’s Blog

SCGMC 2016 is over, here’s what happened!

SCGMC 2016 is over, here’s what happened! For those that don’t know what SCGMC is, it’s the Southern California Gundam Model Competition. This was our 6th year hosting this competition; and even though there was a big convention happening the same weekend (Pacific Media Expo – PMX) we still did quite well. We had 280 people in attendance. Of that, 87 entered […] Source: GameraBaenre’s Blog

Bandai Scopedog

Bandai Scopedog Given the large scale of the Scopedog and gritty nature of the Votoms universe, I decided to showcase weathering in this build. Follow the picture links to the Gallery and the In-Progress pages. Gallery Page In-Progress Page Source: Funakatown
