    First Gunpla EVER!

    Figured it was time to get started on my first ever Gunpla kit...found a cheap HG “Julieta’s Mobile Reginlaze” for like $6 on sale at a local department store...



    Figured while I waited for the blower to come in, to finish my homemade spray booth, I’d cut the bits off the sprue and sort them





    I will sand everything next weekend and put together the sub assemblies, prepping for paint as soon as this booth is complete...

    WOW I really like that booth! I was going to start on drawing out plans to make my own as well. I have a “Store bought “ one and it is OK, but I want a bigger one that can actually fit bigger kits. You wouldn’t by chance have your measurements still do you?

    As for your first Gundam, you have just taken the first step towards Bankruptcy! Congratulations and welcome to the group!

    Lol, my “to do someday” bench...believe me I’m a model addict...

    As for the plans, if you Google “Vent Works” I got the plans for free from them and a complete parts list, although I scaled mine up just slightly...

    Thanks I will look that up later.

    Nice little backlog you have started there. Be careful with that backlog, they tend to grow bigger and longer super fast. LOL

    If I had some money, I'd love to buy that A-Wing, X-Wing, and one of those Y-Wings off of you.

    I have plans for those puppies, I got a big diorama planned for them.

    Are they hard to come by back in the US? They are relatively common here in Japan...maybe because it’s a Bandai Product...if ya want something from out here, hit me up...

    I've at least seen the X-Wing for sale in some Barnes & Noble stores. I have yet to see an A-Wing (my favorite fighter). If you were in the States, it'd be easier as I would just send you straight cash money (I'm not a big fan of online transactions nor am I a fan of paper trails).
