Back to working on the Dom Barrage (update 3 for those counting)

Back to working on the Dom Barrage (update 3 for those counting) And now back to our regularly scheduled programming. It has been a decent while since the last update for the Dom. I got interrupted by the Exceed RX-78 thingy as well as a shiny new Form 2 3D printer. The latter bit ties in nicely with this update. Continuing from where I last left off […] Source: GameraBaenre’s Blog

Goodbye Hugo

Goodbye Hugo Ok, personal life post time, so if you’re looking for something TGG, SCGMC, or Gunpla related; you may want to skip this one. This is about a part of my life that has been with me for the past 15 and a half years. And he’s gone now. So this is my goodbye. This is […] Source: GameraBaenre’s Blog

RX-78 Gundam Exceed Model Head DONE!

RX-78 Gundam Exceed Model Head DONE! This is easily one of my quickest projects to complete in the past 10 or so years. The tough part was figuring out how to take the damn thing apart, and you can check out the disassembly video here: Naturally, I need to add lights to the thing so I built a light setup for […] Source: GameraBaenre’s Blog

Tearing down the Gundam Exceed Model Head

Tearing down the Gundam Exceed Model Head This past weekend, I saw a FB post from one of my local shops (Neo Happy Land Co) saying they had the RX-78 Gundam Exceed Heads in stock. They’re selling them there for $10. Which isn’t too bad a markup being that they’re gashapon items from Japan. I have a few of the Zaku Exceed […] Source: GameraBaenre’s Blog

Dom Barrage Progress Update 2

Dom Barrage Progress Update 2 Progress slowed down a bit because I spent a few days making a mold of a crappy Thai made resin recast of Faye Valentine that a friend of mine picked up back in 2003. The resin is so brittle and ceramic like in texture that it is near impossible to work with and sand. I […] Source: GameraBaenre’s Blog

First new project of the year! 1/100 Dom Barrage

First new project of the year! 1/100 Dom Barrage Feb 1, 2019. I started this immediately after finishing the Dreissen project. Pretty much the same day. I stumbled upon the Dom Barrage, MS-09 F/Br a few years ago and was interested in doing a build of it off the MG Dom. But the reference pictures were pretty lacking and I think I found one […] Source: GameraBaenre’s Blog

Dreissen is Done

Dreissen is Done And a day after the last post, I’m done. I seriously did not think I was going to have this update until at least the end of the week. Dehydrator = time traveling for model building. I filled in some gaps between the 3D printed support piece and the base with more hydrocal and into […] Source: GameraBaenre’s Blog

Dreissen part is 99.9% complete

Dreissen part is 99.9% complete Last we left off, I assessed the project and started on the last bits to finish the damn thing. The chest piece that I melted is painted and back to normal. Another electronics test to make sure all the wire rework didn’t screw anything up. And the whole thing is gloss coated. Since all the […] Source: GameraBaenre’s Blog

New year, Old Project

New year, Old Project Time to kick off the new year with a project. Not necessarily a new project, but something that has been shelved for almost 7 years. I had to dig through my harddrive to find this next set of pictures. Last date from the pictures in this set is April 14, 2012. I originally stopped working […] Source: GameraBaenre’s Blog
