Updated 12/2/2013=======================================================
So this part is not actually a part of the portable but more like an add on tool.
SD Card to Gamecube Memory Card Slot Adapter




Also bought another SD adapter for the micro SD card.

Unicorn Inspiration

Just for fun. This is one of those builds that you just have to share. I love it. If I ever get an HG Unicorn, this is the paint scheme.



This build was found on gundam guy here: http://www.gundamguy.blogspot.com/2013/10/gundam-uc-hguc-unicorn-gundam-painted.html#more

WIP SD RX-78-2 Updated: 10-18-2013

Update: 10/18/2013 =====================================================
 

More modifications. I cut out the face of the gundam and then resulted the sides of the faceplate. Again I used Milliput epoxy putty.

SD RX-78-2 Review



Even though this post will be put under the review section, it is really just a quick discussion of the kit and what I plan to do with it. I'd imagine that people can still use this as a review.

WIP Project Ozymandias


It has been forever since I updated this blog. I've been too busy applying for college and SAT and whatnot. Anyway here is my SD Zaku Head WIP now officially named Project Ozymandias, named after the poem by Percy Shelley from which I got my inspiration.

SD Zaku Gunner

Finally done! Well in short I had fun (except for masking... I still don't have really modeling masking tape) and I'm proud of that glow effect I did on the heat hawk. Hope you guys like it.

Well I'm finally back. Did a little bit of painting, I expect to have this little guy done in the next couple of days. Here's a quick teaser.

WIP #4 SD Zaku Gunner

Haven't given up on Gundams just yet. Though GBWC is a bit of a mystery right now (I may be wrong I haven't read up on the news recently) but I decided to brush up on my airbrushing skills.

 
Darth Vader?

Gamecube Portable


This will be my newest project: a handheld Gamecube. I still have not gotten the supplies yet so not too much work has been done yet but I do have some pictures.

GBA WIP #3

Nothing special. Added a charging jack.


I will be leaving on vacation later today and so I won't be able to start painting this guy until after I get back. Until then.

Ugh

Well, this is going to be my first 100% non-mecha post. Nothing special just some thoughts. So recently balancing seven AP tests as well as SAT Subject tests, and just the regular school work has been killing me. Have not been able to even think about gundams or mecha of any kind much at all let alone build anything.

But good news is I found an interesting side hobby. I will post about that soon!

WIP #3 Project Ozymandias


So now my "Zaku Head Display" has an official name "Ozymandias" named after Percy Shelley's poem - the inspiration for this build. Anyway. Recently I learned that when making WIPs its easier just to keep updating the same post but I guess that will have to wait until my next project.

Air Compressor Modification Tutorial

There are a number of cheap hobby compressors out there that are tankless and this means that the motor needs to keep running in order to supply the airbrush with air. This quick "tutorial" is basically a quick guide in how to install your own tank on your compressor.

WIP #1 Zaku Head Display

This SD Zaku project was originally for the Mecha Contest 2012 but due to lack of materials I didn't complete it. Recently I have decided to change the idea into just a zaku head display since the head is so big I can just make a up to scale torso/neck/collar. For now I have no pictures of my progress since the competition but I will post the progress I made during the Mecha Contest 2012.

MG Gyan Inspiration by livesel

Well, this is only a reblog of a post on gundamguy but I was blown away by this guy. I've always wanted to build a Gyan but this just pushes the kit way up on my list. Super glossy kits are my kind of thing. Usually I hate copying other people's ideas but this one is a total exception. I cannot think of a single thing to change. Enjoy.

MG Kits Bandai Should Release

I feel like a bit of a copy cat but I got this idea from Waylander and Toymaker. Actually I had already started a similar thread on Mechalounge. Anyway here are some kits that Bandai should release: (not arranged in any particular order)

HG 1/100 Talgeese I Inspiration by singlemedia

Wow. All that I can say about this build.


MG Tallgeese I Inspiration



Well I decided to check out some of the few pre-release pictures of the MG Tallgeese I just to get a sense of proportions and check out some of the features (such as the flaps on the skirts) for my HG Tallgeese III build.

Tallgeese I by Robot On The Palm

I was just browsing around for tallgeese inspiration and stumbled upon this crazy build. Very unique design, it apparently was scratch built off a Tierren.

WIP #1 HG 1/144 Tallgeese III

Well it's time to start on your GBWC entries! Bandai will not annouce the official rules until March I think but it never hurts to get a head start. So here we go: Tallgeese III.
