Space Jahannam WIP 2: More mods and details

Space Jahannam WIP 2: More mods and details Weapon Mods I did not like the beam rifle the kit comes with. It just  looks to weird in hand without a trigger finger hand and it does not sit on arm too well. Ended up chopping the back end of the rifle and reshaping the handle with styrene and putty.     The wrists looked too skinny to me compared with the rest of the arm so I added a … Read More

Completed Build 1 + Tear Apart: HG Purple Frame Unicorn

Completed Build 1 + Tear Apart: HG Purple Frame Unicorn Base Kit: HG Unicorn Destroy Mode Mods: None, just paint   First kit I attempted anything with other than snap fitting. Everything was hand painted except the white armor parts.   Tear Apart Now for the fun part. Ripping it to shreds. I’m still relatively new to the hobby and only recently started painting and modding kits. As with a lot of other things, it’s good practice to look … Read More

Mistake Roundup #1

Mistake Roundup #1 I’m pretty new to customizing kits so I still make a lot of mistakes. Here are a few that I have made so you can learn from them. Soft Plastic + Putty + a Ziplock bag = a Rubbery Mess This happened while I was trying to fill in the holes on the backs of the Space Jahannam hands. They are made of the soft plastic that Bandai uses in newer HGs, usually the frame/weapon grey … Read More

Space Jahannam WIP 1: Proportion Changes and LED Mod

Space Jahannam WIP 1: Proportion Changes and LED Mod I originally got this kit dirt cheap and had it boxed up somewhere after I snapped it together. Decided that it was finally time I did something to it. LED Mod Emptied out the chest cavity as much as I could. Also added some styrene to the hole for the neck polycap to give it a slightly longer neck. Wired up the red LED with 24 gauge magnet copper wire, … Read More

Powered GM ‘Murica WIP

Powered GM ‘Murica WIP Potential color scheme inspired by the Megebots Mk. II. Going to end up adding a lot of guns to this so yeah… ‘MURICA! Used a pin vice to bore holes into the beam sabers and convert them into guns. Didn’t get the holes perfectly centered.   Since this is based on an old kit, its using old joints which have to modified in order to be able able to remove the seam lines. This way I … Read More

Bandai 1/100 VF-25S Messiah Valkyrie Complete!

Bandai 1/100 VF-25S Messiah Valkyrie Complete! After completing the Core Fighter I repaired the Wing Gundam shadow box project that had been pretty well wrecked in an earthquake we had a few months back. After that I dusted off a project that had been on hold for about 18 months. I had it all ready to paint but when it came time to give it a white shaded paint job, I lost interest. So I grabbed another one of … Read More

Core Fighter Complete!

Core Fighter Complete! It has been 6 months since I finished a model… but this one’s in the books! It has an Air Force camouflage pattern but Navy weathering. The major decals are my own design and all the little data stencils come from the kit. To make it more detailed I replaced the kit’s seat with a 1/32 scale resin ejection seat from an F/A-18C Hornet and resin wheels from two different scale F-4 Phantoms. To see the … Read More
