Here's a smattering of my completed builds. Except for rare occasions I forgo the use of any stickers and hand paint any needed details such as eyes.

For starters here's my first kit Exia
http://pre02.deviantart.net/d655/th/pre/f/2015/293/6/f/exia_by_othikent-d9dubkd.jpg
Please forgive the poor picture quality. I have since slowly improved my equipment and technique with taking photos.

This one I call RX-78-2 Resurrection. It was my second kit and first heavy modification attempt.
http://pre14.deviantart.net/45f2/th/pre/f/2015/293/2/0/ressurected_by_othikent-d9duept.jpg
For an early attempt I am quite happy with it.

Here's my first and so far only completed MG. Heavy Arms
http://orig12.deviantart.net/596e/f/2015/337/a/f/heavy_arms_ew_by_othikent-d9iwve6.jpg
I think I will revisit this kit soon to improve it.

Alright here's a more recent kit of mine. The Space Jahanam Klim Nick Use.
Haven't seen the associated series so I know little about this suit but I liked the design well enough.

First kit I top coated.

Hope you all like these. If anyone's interested I'll put up a few more.

Feedback appreciated.

I can barely see the photos. What are you using to put them up? If you use photo bucket they will come across buch bigger. But from what I can see you do good work. Loving the battle damaged on the RXM78

You do some awesome work man. I love the battle damage on the RX-78. And all the kits look really really good.

Thank you. Been working on my weathering techniques.

Here's one I did rather quickly.
A fond part of my childhood. OK teenage years.

Shining Gundam!
http://img14.deviantart.net/0c6d/i/2016/049/a/9/rise_shining_gundam__by_othikent-d9s70l0.jpg
This is the 1/144 scale HG. I panel lined it and hand painted the gold and blue apps on the legs. I decided against weathering or my usual matt topcoat to preserve the cartoonish feel. I think I should go back in a clean it up a bit. maybe go for a satin or gloss coat, but I haven't decided. I know I want to build the landing pod from the show as a display base at some point.

Feedback appreciated.

I must say I really like how you did your RX-78-2 Resurrection. It really looks like it was salvaged from one heck of a fight.

Othikent
March 8, 2016, 3:54 PM
Thank you. I'm very proud of that one seeing as it was the seconed gunpla kit I built. The left arm gave me trouble.

Xeiond
March 8, 2016, 4:42 PM
Well it shows and the work done to the arm must of been rather tricky to manage. I myself have not done anything as awesome as modifactions but looking at your RX-78-2 really makes me want to try.

Othikent
March 11, 2016, 2:07 AM
Thank you. I was weary of doing it myself. Just had to bite the bullet in the end. Helped that the kit was cheap.

My latest kit. Well half of it. I present Gundam Nadleeh.

I agree about the battle damage. makes the kits more interesting and adds character.

Been working on posing my kits.

thought I'd go for a classic, or as close as I can get with the kits I have.

Love battle scoring on the Virtue, looks pretty sweet.

March 28, 2016, 2:43 PM
Thank you. The weathering on this kit took awhile. First use of a chipping effect. I went a bit overboard but it looks good.

Othikent
October 14, 2016, 6:17 AM
Well it's been a few months. I just kind of ended up focusing on other projects. Mostly my miniature painting and a few other things. anyway the gunpla bug has hit again and I'm in full swing, I have probably too many projects started so look for them soon.

Until then I give you The RX-178-MK II
http://pre02.deviantart.net/1809/th/pre/f/2016/287/2/3/rx_178_mk_ii_by_othikent-dal1cbj.jpg
A bit more restrained chipping effect on this one. Also painted the exposed frame in metallics.

Next I bring you the HG Sinanju!

http://pre05.deviantart.net/dbc3/th/pre/f/2016/302/f/7/sinanju_by_othikent-damkz66.jpg

I love this suit but it's filigree gave me problems. After many different attempts I finally managed to hand paint the filigree. It's not perfect but I like the effect it gave. The filigree on the shield I managed to airbrush, but when I attempted it on the other pieces I just didn't work. other than that I just did a bit of panel lining, did a mix of hand and airbrushing of the other metallic details including the thrusters.

Here's my latest kit, a HG Jesta. Must say I really love this suit.

http://pre14.deviantart.net/40b6/th/pre/i/2016/319/8/8/hg_jesta_by_othikent-daoi8dp.jpg http://img00.deviantart.net/acba/i/2016/319/0/d/jesta_detail_by_othikent-daoi9tb.jpg http://pre04.deviantart.net/74aa/th/pre/i/2016/319/7/7/jesta_pose_by_othikent-daoiabo.jpg

Not a full paint job but I did hand paint a few color apps and details and weathered it up and gave it a flat varnish. I also did a minor modification to the shoulder armor adding vent details. I may have gone a bit over board on the damage but I wanted a beat up suit. Over all I,m rather happy with it. Still working on my seam removal techniques. The tactic I took here didn't quite blend the way I wanted it too but I'm making progress.

Picked this Kit up awhile ago. It was a fun build and I decided to do some minor modifications, added some metal details to the shoulder armor and vent details to the knee armor. Also did a bit of painting, not the whole kit but some metallic apps and the black parts of the armor. Tried to do a little less weathering then I usually do and tried a splattering effect. Rather happy with this one.

COOL gouf, with that amount of damage I would hate to see the whats left of the GMs who tried to fight him. I take that back, Yes trashed GMs is always a nice thing to look at. Nice work.

December 16, 2016, 5:12 AM
Thanks! Working on this suit gave me an appreciation for the design.

Othikent
December 29, 2016, 2:42 AM
I picked up one of my favorite mobile suits to complement my Gouf Custom. The Ez8 from 8th MS Team. Did a bit of modification to the suite, adding metallic details to the shoulders as well as narrowed the bars. Also added a scratch built Chaff launcher and sensor unit to the chest. Unfortunately the elbow joint on the left arm failed as I was posing it. I can still wedge it into place and on the up side I can now emulate the scenes where the suits is missing the left arm so not a total loss. I repainted the shield and ammo packs to corrected the color to be more anime accurate. As well as painting the backpack rack and parachute pack as well as the machine gun. Over all I'm rather happy with how this turned out.

Several firsts for me here. My first Diorama, My first fully panted Kit and some new weathering techniques as well. I am very happy with this especially for my first attempt. The shack is 100% scratch built by me and my first attempt to make a building. I also built a basic seat for the cockpit as it was far too empty without it. I modified the GM in several ways opening the cockpit tearing up the limbs and such. I also tied a new weathering technique to get some nice scoring and melted effects.

My second fully painted kit. I painted this one up as a quick project to cut my teeth on. Well I learned a lot. I'm fairly happy with it considering all the problems I had with it, Almost all my own fault. I did some preshading but It proved to subtle to show up in the pictures. Painted almost entirely with acrylic paints (Army painter and Vallejo). The kit itself was a fun build, and I have to say I like the redesign from the original.

Your diorama is great! I really like it, I hope I can do as good a job on mine when I get to finishing it. Nice clean paint job on that Ball unit, I bet you had a ball doing that one. Ha Ha (sorry I know that was bad, but I couldn't resist it needed to be said)

Othikent
February 23, 2017, 8:27 AM
Thanks! Had a blast with the diorama. And the ball was a good build. Getting the color right was a pain but rewarding. Good luck with your diorama.

My Entry into ZakuAurelius' Custom Zaku Contest.

I used a Zaku II High Mobility Type as a base and it is my third fully painted kit and the first time I've used watersides. I settled on a semi fixed pose for this kit due mainly to my paranoia about scratching paint. I added a single Vulcan cannon to the head, modified the backpack adding large thrusters and propellant tanks. Added Missile pods to the shoulder shields. Seeing as I gave the Suit two anti-ship rifles I had to build a second trigger-finger hand as well as swap the scope on one of the rifles. I also decided the standard clips of the Anti-ship rifle was to small so I added drum clips. I also added a few metal detail parts to the back of the legs, not to noticeable but I like them.

The kit is primed in a both model master enamel and acrylic primers, and painted in army painter colors

Did you make the ant ship rifles yourself? I'm just working out how to scratch build a big rifle myself.

Thanks! Glad you like it. And no I didn't scratch build them just modified standard Anti-Ship rifles found in most zaku origin kits. Sorry I couldn't be more help.

Ok been awhile but I'm still working on projects. I give you my HG GM Type C Heavy Weapon Refit
My entry for The Mecha Lounge's GM vs. Zaku Build off.

Went with a fairly simple color scheme (Unfortunately a bit of the detail is washed out in the pictures) toyed some different painting techniques with this build not all successful. I'm happy with the mods I've done. Modified the kits original bazooka into a shoulder cannon, beefed up the antenna and built an "Assault pod" onto the left arm. Mostly I'm just happy to get this project finished. Hope you all like it.
