    Editing/deleting these first few posts to clean up my thread a little. I won't delete anyone's comments, don't worry! Your interest in my builds is very appreciated - I promise not to disappoint!

    Re: Reiger's workshop

    Here is a tip for you for doing damage that looks like melted metal. I use a wood burning kit I found at harbor freight. If you go to my WIP you will see my Zakus that are a bit on the damaged side. The wood burner came with all kinds of attachments so I can do small thin lines or great big holes like if it took a bazooka hit.


    To error is human, to forgive is divine, Luckily I'm neither of these things!

    Re: Reiger's workshop

    Thanks, guys! And I'll have to give that a shot, gundammonkey! I'll dig out my camera and get some shots sometime this weekend. MG Turn A showed up, so I'm gonna be snapping him together tomorrow. He's gonna be an out of box build with some pretty simple weathering/washing/topcoating.

    EDIT: Found my USB cable! Later today I'll be hanging out with other Gundam nerds, and I'll be building this dapper gent:

    Forgot my camera when I went to hang out with coworkers and build some gunpla, so here's a crappy shot of my Turn A snapped together next to one of my coworkers' first ever gunpla, a HG Shenlong. He had a blast and he's looking forward to getting more kits and increasing his skill!

    Re: Reiger's workshop

    Lookin' good, I second the notion of battledamaged ms, having them look like they came straight out of a factory certainly has its place, but I like my suits to have scrapes and damage like they've seen frontline combat.
    Oh well. What ever happens, happens.

    What ever you're looking for, it's always in the last place you look.

    Re: Reiger's workshop

    Yeah, I don't mean to say "clean" MS kits are bad or anything, just I have so much fun beating them up haha. I'm planning to do my Char Gelgoog 2.0 like it just rolled out of the factory, same with my Turn A. Turn A being mint is canonical anyway.

    This guy showed up yesterday before work, hopefully the beam rifle will come by Saturday for another weekend of relaxed gunpla building with coworkers! Gonna be watching The 08th MS Team as one of them hasn't seen it yet. Hoping to get him as hooked on the Universal Century as I am!



    Also be sure to check out the very first post of this thread, it's been converted to a status page listing all of my current custom projects and a brief run-down on what I plan to do with them! I'll be updating it as work continues on the kits, so check it whenever you stop by!

    - - - Updated - - -

    My other Gelgoog 2.0 showed up yesterday, just in time to take him to my usual weekend hangout with the other gunpla jerks at a coworker's house!We blitzed through The 08th MS Team whilst brainstorming custom kits and with me feverishly Dremeling away at my mobile suit. I managed to finish the shield's impact scars, but still need to add blast/shrapnel scrapes and the like with a fine hobby knife.I hadn't seen The 08th in a while, so I was a little distracted and I wasn't able to finish completely - as you can see he still needs his left arm! But it was a blast, as usual, and I had a lot of fun building and playing with the Kotobukiya gatling gun - it has a little wind-up motor inside that makes the barrels spin! Oh, and I also bored out the hole for the Darth Maul saber on the back of the shield, just enough to accommodate the Action Base crotch adapter, which fits the Kampfer shotgun perfectly! I'll finish his basic snapbuild tomorrow, and will get better photos when I do. Mind the mess, I'm rearranging my room a little so it's a bit chaotic!

    Re: Reiger's workshop

    Thanks! I still have a long way to go on it! I'm trying to keep the feet/lower legs the most beat up, as they see constant contact with foothills, rock formations, riverbeds, landmines, etc. Plus all that trudging around adds up! The arms will be just about as heavy, with the torso/cockpit area being the healthiest looking, as the shield takes most of the brunt. I've nicknamed this one "the Gundam killer", because that's what I want to make - a custom MS-14S that can be deployed to defend an airfield from one or more Gundam types at once.

    The shield is very beaten up because it is utilized in a charge rush, with the shotgun serving little more purpose than to point-blank blast out the head sensors once the gap has been closed. The gatling gun is a beam type, since traditional solid shell ammo usually does little more than annoy the average Gundam.

    There will also be a row of beam sabers mounted on either side of the chest, about three to each side, for close-range combat. Each saber is "overclocked", with the particle density drastically increased to inflict maximum damage to Gundam anatomy. This tends to cause the sabers to overheat and explode, hence the need for so many to be readily available.

    I... like to overthink my builds, heh...

    and Gundam killer is a good name. imagine being a Gelgoog pilot in the one year war and killing a gundam. damn that would be sweet.
