CUSTOM BUILD: BUSTER BLADE "SCHNEIDER"


Here is my entry for the HG 00 Gundam contest created by Painted Hobbies. I used as base my old 00 Qan [T] and beefed him up using various parts from MG Red Frame Astray, SD Qan [T], builder parts, kotobukiya MSG, excess sprue, old stickers and plastic styrene sheets. It took me a month to finish this custom kit. And man, it was a great and fun build! This is just my second custom designed build and definetely its a huge progress over my first one. Check out the final product below and hopefully you guys would love it.

PG ZETA GUNDAM: CUSTOM BUILD

Message from Mario (a.k.a lazer.74)

"This took me about 490 hours of work spanned in 12 months.
This is my first approach to a lot of things and techniques:
- use of plasticard
- armor trimming and reshaping
- re-proportion (longer legs)
- use of metal parts (Vulcans, energy cables, thrusters, vents)
- entire airbrush painting by post shading basically (Mr. Hobby/Mr. Color paints, all colours customized)
- weathering (Humbrol enamels and Abteilung Oils)"

ADDING PINS TO YOUR GUNPLA

A simple trick I've learned recently from DC23, adding pins o your gunpla! Here's how to do it.

First prepare the materials. You'll need pins


a pin vise w/ drill bit (that matches the size of the pin)


pliers, pencil/pen, toohpick, wax paper and super glue.

Once the materials are ready, select a part where want to insert the pin. Now mark that spot with a pencil/pen and then right after start drilling it with the pin vise. Make sure that you drill straight so that the pin wont curve when you insert it.

After drilling, wipe out the excess plastic from the hole. Start preparing the super glue by putting it on top of a wax paper cut out. The glue wont dry fast with this method allowing you ample to have time to apply the glue on the hole. Use a toothpick when applying. After this insert the pin and let it stick on the part. Remove the excess pin with the pliers and that's it! You've now added a pin to your gunpla!

It will look something like this:
