    I'll work on taking some good pics of it this weekend :D 

    I made those in powerpoint and got some business card acrylic display from amazon. I tried to get them to look like the ones Bandai has at their shows and added the date I completed the model.

    NICE.
    I used to scribble my completion dates on kits themselves, underneath an armor panel that would never be taken off. but now I just keep it strictly in an MS Word document.

    I did it just so people who see my display can tell what stuff I actually built. They used to think everything in my display case I built :lol

    I have joined the F90 club.

    F90.jpg

    Smaller than i expected but highly enjoyable. I dont have any mission backs and I feel a lot of them is a bit much hiding the very nice machine thats the core. Might change my mind later, never know. I do like some of the rifles that come with some of the packs. I do like a nice color separeted rifle. Too often the guns get a bit dull in one color.

    Panel-lining can be a pain at that scale, but you've done an admirable job. :thumb 
    Those decals are showing a lot of silvering, though. Have you considered a matte topcoat?

    I really so love how MG kits aren't straight up representations but often are redesigns. I was looking over the line art for the ZAKU Warrior/Phantom and honestly they're dorky as fuck. The MGs five them a noticeable amount of bulk and they look better as a result. The bigger helmet, big back collar, chunkier legs and wider torso...really give it a much more menacing look.

    The protruding top "lip" of the helmet helps to give it a much more evil look too.

    IT'S DONE!
    (and sorry for the mess...)

    IMG_0002.JPG


    i had fun with this one, being the...

    *checks display shelf*

    6th Wing Zero Custom that i build (7th to own if i count the RD) but as always there are some pros and cons that i like to point out.


    Pros:
    - simple and solid build with interesting gimmicks
    - articulation is pretty cool!

    Cons:
    - the internal joints of the chest area that allow for the TBR pose are too tight for my taste so i might have to improvise at some point
    - i cant trust the ball joints in the wing pylons, as of right now those hold extremely well but if someday i come back to make photocomics those joints are going to wear off real quick with all the heavy posing
    - while i do like the versatility of the foldable rifles (and how little they weight), i hate that they are so damn delicate, and that's not counting the fact that you have to be VERY precise when mounting them to the hands due to the extra pegs so the rifles can be secured in place...

    overall i love this thing but i have to take make sure it's useable instead of being a pretty display piece.

    speaking of pretty... this is the first kit i have where i didn't use any stickers and painted all the key parts instead... but that was because i had no other choice!

    why?

    because when opening the box and checking the parts i threw the bags away with the little sticker sheet still inside and i didnt realize until it was too late... Orz...

    On the other hand, if you don't care to complete the BAF, at least it's an extra weapon or fodder for debris/terrain/battle damage. Hopefully the price doesn't get jacked up too much.

    Any theme you had in mind? Or at least a colour scheme?

    The 00 Gundams were largely named for heavenly virtues and the angelic heirarchy, so you can use that as a jumping off point and see if you can find something that ties all your ideas together.

    the BAF is a Zaku though... a standard green "troop builder" Zaku. Why make the one figure most collectors would probably want multiples of the one that you have buy a whole set to complete just 1?

    Even if Build Divers wasn't the most well-received show, I still find it bizarre that the only Build Divers MG is the Age II Magnum, without the 00 Diver ACE or 00 Sky (Both of which could've been moderate retools of the pre-existing MG 00 Gundams, and we know how Bandai loves milking the MG 00 kits) to go with it.

    I do get that the MG AGE 2 Magnum didn't sell all that well, so I doubt we’ll see any MGs from the Build series (At least, for a while), which kinda sucks cause there are still some other designs from those series that can make for pretty cool MGs without needing much R&D cost. One of which is Kazami's Justice Knight from RE:Rise, which could've been an easy retool/remold of the pre-existing MG Infinite Justice (Which was already a pretty solid MG even for its age, to begin with) with new colors.

    That actually makes sense. I always thought Gundam Cherudim was named because it was a ranged unit and so the namesake was Cherubs.
