Quick post to show you guys how I added the motor to the leg. I used a cell phone vibration motor that I picked up on ebay. covered the open space of the foot with styrene and just drilled a hole for the motor. Used a piece of square tube to house the motor. Cut off the ball joint part of the leg and replaced it with the tube. After that, just added the connection parts for the armor. […]
I originally wanted to recreate the final fight between the Barbatos and Graze Ein from the anime for my first diarama. Didn’t feel like buying the 6th form HG Barbatos but I had the HG Barbatos that came with the Long Distance Booster. Looked into how much model buildings cost (they are expensive) and didn’t want to scratch build them so I went with a forest fight. From there I came up with a concept that had the Graze Ein […]
So we shot a commercial for the upcoming Southern California Gundam Model Competition. This written and filmed in one day without any planning. Outtakes after the video. Enjoy.
So I’m currently at the boring, clean up part of the Space Jahannam build. Decided to switch to a different project I’ve had on my mind for a while. It was originally just to supposed to be a simple, quick build but then thought it would be a good project to test working with surface mount leds (the very tiny ones). The Swords The swords looked a bit too small and I wanted them to look more menacing. Used […]
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 wrist gun and grappling cable to them. Started off […]
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.
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 pieces. Normally, using putty […]
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, added a resistor and soldered magnets to the end of […]
