Gunpla Build RX-78-2 Ver. 3 MSZ-006 Zeta Gundam MG
Here's two of my first builds, had to start off with the granddaddy of all gundam. RX-78 was a good model, design wise, but construction it's very fragile, the legs fall off whenever you attempt to pose it. Zeta Gundam is very sturdy, but a part did break inside it's wings but it's not noticeable. I may end up selling these when I purchase the Origin RX-78 version, and another Zeta to custom paint.

Gunpla Build RX-178 Gundam Mk-II 1/100
There's no shortage of photos when it comes to this one, changed up a few colors here and there, and added some panel lines along the legs, I wanted to break up the all white legs. Went with a black color for the chest instead of dark blue. This took forever to complete, but it was a fun build. :)

Gunpla Build RX-78GP01-Fb Gundam 1/100
This was my first custom painted gundam, one of my favorites from Gundam 0083 Stardust Memory, I love that it has so many boosters, those feet are terrible, but it's not designed for ground combat. 

I stuck close to the original colors, used flat tamiya paint (in hindsight probably not the best, but it turned out okay) for the shoulder boosters, I cut apart the additional boosters and glued them to the front and back, It kinda looked silly to just paint the circle, didn't look realistic enough. 

I ended up purchasing additional decals online, the ones included in the kit looked very old and bland, typical for older model kits.

Hey everyone!

It's been a VERY long time since I've submitted any art or made a journal entry. What have I been up to you may ask? I've been keeping pretty busy as of late, building & painting Gunpla kits, doing photoshop edits, photography, annnd attempting to get my personal training license along with finding another job. I did have some personal things going on, it put me in a major funk for awhile.. but I'm better now :)  

I have done some pretty cool things as of late, and I need to be better at posting. So this week I plan on uploading most of the graphics I've created in my downtime here at work (shhh don't tell my bosses I've been using the system for personal use.lol) 

So stay tuned! I mean it this time, seriously.lol
