1/144 RG Launcher / Sword Strike Gundam

Received from a kind stranger through the first Christmas gift exchange on reddit r/Gunpla. A great addition to the original RG Aile Strike. I’d love to see the P202QX IWSP and AQM/E-X04 Gunbarrel in RG format. Testors Black enamel, decals, Future polish, Mr. Top Coat Completed on: December 2012  

1/20 Ohmu LED lighted eyes (Nausicaä)

I wanted a realistic looking Ohmu with blue eyes and red LEDs bright enough to shine through the blue paint. The Bandai Nausicaa kits were all retooled from the old Tsukuda Hobby models. The Ohmu’s eyes were originally clear domes, but Bandai molded pegs under the arch. These made the LED lights a bit dimmer because …

1/144 LED Mirage Sarion ver.

This is the LED Mirage piloted by Sarion, a royal of the Amaterasu family and a prince of Grees. The primary difference can be seen in the design of the head crest. The kit also comes with a Colus ver. shield and parts to make a normal LED Mirage, so it’s kind of like a …

1/144 Knight of Gold ‘Lachesis’ (gold-plated)

A gold-plated version of the Knight of Gold ‘Lachesis’ i.e. the Knight of Gold with the buster launcher. This was not an easy build due to the coating and plus the original kit is already troublesome enough. The sprues are not under-gated. Coating between contact points needed to be sanded off whereupon a mixture of …

1/144 RG Aile Strike Gundam

1/48 Savoia S.21F late type (Porco Rosso)

This is the seaplane piloted by Porco in the Studio Ghibli anime Porco Rosso, after Fio has fixed it. It is supposedly based on the designs of the real life SIAI S.12/S.13 reconnaissance fighter biplane and the Macchi m.33 seaplane. I was very pleased with the level of detail Fine Molds implemented into this kit; …

1/144 Engage Octaver SR3 (Jade Temple)

The Engage Octaver SR-3, also know as the Jade Temple or Saylay Junchoon, is a flagship Mortar Headd of Trio de Colus. It is crafted by Dr. Diamond Neutral among his Temple series and piloted by princess Saylay of the Colus Dynasty. I built the kit as a regular version even though there were some …

1/144 Knight of Gold AT (Patraqushe Mirage)

The Patraqushe Mirage, also known as Knight of Gold AT or Knight of Gold 2, is the second Knight of Gold built by Amaterasu and named after the island origin of the Floating Temple. In JC4100, it lost to the Junchoon in a legendary battle. This kit holds certain sentimental value as both my first …
