Now onto the PG I've so long waited to build. Why wait so long? Partly because I wanted to do this kit justice, and partly as I wanted a good concept for the paint job.
The box is massive.... Continue Reading ››
Eating into my kit backlog one kit at a time. The 00 Raiser has been on the shelf for quite a while and now its turn has come...
Starting with the massive box, I'd previously opened it just to have a look at the GN Drives.Continue Reading ››
Moving onto the legs, they're a beauty!
I really like the clean details and construction, and the colour scheme is working well.
Moving on to the white armour pieces, they all started with a good undercoat of Alclad … Continue Reading ››
With most of the frame done in Tamiya gunmetal, we can move onto assembly.
I added some shadows in Tamiya smoke. It's subtle, but looks pretty good.
The yellow pieces were Tamiya lemon, with Tamiya clear over the top. … Continue Reading ››
This kit has been waiting a fair while to be built. But even before I bought it, I'd been waiting a while since I first saw it and knew it had to be part of my collection.

As you know from reading through my work-in-progress posts, I've been using some fluorescent paints on the PG Unicorn. I also bought a small UV flashlight on Amazon to help me show how the model looks when lit with UV light.
Just using the UV light (and … Continue Reading ››
Painting and building of the PG Unicorn are complete. I'm awaiting some water-slide decals arriving, so as it will now be a while before I can do proper photos and the transform, here's some quick ones to show the mech and weapons.
Even in a non-transformed state … Continue Reading ››
Next up on this epic build are the weapons. Carrying the theme through I'm using the same combination of paints that I've used for the mech, just with a bias in the opposite direction, making most pieces gunmetal, with white and grey accents and details done with the three shades of grey/blue.Continue Reading ››
The head turned out to be a little harder to assemble than I'd have liked, but the real key is to read through the steps of the instructions very very carefully and don't miss steps. Also, I'd advise leaving the back plate off until the end as otherwise it's easy to scratch and mark. I … Continue Reading ››
