1/60 PG Strike Freedom Snapfit Completed

Just finished the snapfit of my PG Strike Freedom, which is horrendously big (check out the pint glass next to it in the pic). It's very complicated in it's workings, in some cases a bit too complicated.. It's going to lead to a lot of problems whilst I'm painting it, and I can see it getting easily scratched when it is painted - not something you want to happen when you've just finished painting 55 runners worth of parts! Also, the decals you get are stickers, which I hear suck, so I'm not sure what I'm going to do about that.
 


So anyway, I might leave this until I've completed a few other kits and have learned a bit more about painting/ assembly. 
On another note I need to figure out how to make galleries for completed models, not got the hang of this Blogger thing yet. Hopefully going to put a list down the side of some sort to link to some galleries etc. It's not important.

As we're making to-do lists, my flat is very yellow, I deffinetly need to sort out a decent photography set up.

1/60 PG Strike Freedom

My PG Strike Freedom came! FEDEX from Japan in 5 days.. More than I can say for Parcelforce, still waiting for my package 3 weeks after shipping..
Anyway, This model is bloody huge, wasn't quite prepared for how big it actually is. Here are some pics from the snapfit before I figure out how to paint the thing. 

Might leave the gold frame as is and just paint the panels and details, as I can really see the frame getting hideously scratched as you try to pose it, there are so many moving parts in the frame. 





I'll post more pics as I progress, but I really want to get a bit better at painting before I even think about touching this thing with paint (it was £220...!) 
Also, excuse the terrible iPhone photos - I'm in the market for a new camera, though I'm going to wait until the sales in January....

MG Wing Zero Custom Ver. Gav

A model I've had for a while, it's been battered about a bit and has been sitting in it's box for about two years - Now I've learned to paint these things, that's precisely what I intend to do.

Bit of a mental colour scheme, but I'm all about the risque!

Blog Start


I've started a Blog! This is mainly for my benefit (so I can say I have a Blog) as I really can't imagine anyone will pay perticularly much attention to my ramblings. It's a sort of sketch book I suppose, hopefully I'll be able to see my progress as I learn new stuff (and learn to draw different things apart from robots). I'll also probably post my modeling and Gunpla stuff, also I'll use it to complain about things. Well, one thing at the moment - Parcelforce. They are truly useless and I hate them. Currently waiting for my MG Unicorn and my MG Deathscythe to be delivered..

Image is something I did a while ago for work, I used it for the test post but I'll leave it because I still quite like it.

Hopefully someone will be able to appreciate how nice my blog is and how well I've designed it.
