    Re: Urban's WIPs

    Yep, agreed. I'm really impressed with the range of movement on the head, too. One of the best I've seen yet.
    It's better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it. At least, that's what I keep telling myself with all my modeling supplies...

    Man, good choice. I love how it's basically a GM version of the Alex.

    Re: Urban's WIPs

    Oh, if plans work out, it'll be even more a GM version of the Alex than it already is...

    Re: Urban's WIPs

    As much as I hate my job, Saturdays are sometimes a bit less hectic. Today was a good morning, as I managed to build this (sometimes being the supervisor on shift is awesome). This was an incredible kit; I'm really impressed with all the little details and advancements on the Revive; everything feels so tight and just went together so well. Gonna be doing some touch ups and panel lining later at home. Also have to glue the little red part near the horns in place, cause those are always refusing to stay put. And I have to either glue a bit of one of the horns back in place or just nip the other to match (nippers slipped when taking off the safety fins), or hell, I might keep them asymmetric, I dunno; kinda looks neat in a Wing Fenice sort of way.

    Re: Urban's WIPs

    Desk job in a call center does make it a bit easier to manage a feat like this, lol. Doubt it'll be a regular thing, but sometimes you just need a Gunpla break between calls.

    Re: Urban's WIPs

    I used to work for a call center before, too. It's amazing how you can squeeze Gunpla building into your schedule. Back in my day as an agent, call saturation was pretty high daily. Queuing must be pretty light in your job, huh?

    Still, great work on that granddaddy Gundam. Yeah, my hands are pretty shaky, too, which is why I choose to leave the safety nubs on the v-fins of my 1/144 kits.

    Re: Urban's WIPs

    It can vary wildly each day at my office. Some days its non stop all day long with multiple calls keeping the queue full, then other days we'll have 15-30 minutes between calls. Saturdays I have more time since I cover the supervisor position, which means I don't have to take calls unless it gets really backed up or is insanely busy in general, and things don't get really bad until about 10:30, which is when everyone apparently decides to crawl out of bed and call in to see why their internet/TV isn't working. I had this one pretty well done by the time things got busy today.

    I think it as just a sudden shift right as it was getting to the end of the cut or something. Everything seemed stable and even on the nip right up until it wasn't, hehe.

    Second build done in one day; I'm on a streak! Got some plans for a new paint job on this GM Custom, but for now, I'm working on up-arming it. No more of that piddly little rifle and a beam saber for this GM!

    Nice! Pays good homage to it's lineage with the forearm guns, and looks like he'll be loaded to bear before too long

    Thanks; I just have to tighten up the pegs when I can get some nail polish or super glue so they'll stay in there a bit better.

    Also made some progress this evening on the up-arming process. Drilled out a place on the backpack and mounted an arm to hold something a bit more explosive. It's on the permanent side now, but this is probably the biggest modification I've done to any of my kits thus far, so I went for easier over complex. Maybe down the road I'll try a modification like this again and try to fit in a polycap instead. Still, I like the results.

    Now to figure out what I want to do with that beam gatling...

    Re: Urban's WIPs

    Well, until the weather becomes less like that of a rain forest around here, I'm putting the GM Custom away until I can do some proper painting. With that in mind, I've been working on a couple of other projects. I've been rearranging my room a bit and making a proper space for my kits. Doing so is requiring some rearrangement of my MSiA wall, but it's definitely worth it.



    And now that I've got some space, I'm going to work on some of the straight(er) builds I've been holding back on. Given the contents of the shelf so far, there's one suit that I need to get up there sooner rather than later.

    The GPO2 what a cool little build. I just didn't like or use all of the stickers.

    Re: Urban's WIPs

    I'm probably going to use just the eyes myself. Gonna paint up everything else that's supposed to be done with stickers. Seems like a more modern version of this kit would probably have had a few things (noticeably the vents on the chest, head, and shield) done up in a more fitting color of plastic.

    Re: Urban's WIPs

    That would have been nice, but nope I got the newest remodel or recast of this kit and it still has the same problems. But with the right paint it can still look good.
