Last Kit of 2013 MG Age 2 Normal


Alright guys, this is it, the 26th and final kit I've done this year. My goal this year was to exceed last years 20 kits and I've definitely achieved that.

The MG Age 2 normal was a kit I received in a trade from a fellow redditor. Nothing against the person I traded with, but the kit was in rough shape when I received it; nubs, gouges, you name it. Some of the flaws I fixed, others I just couldn't be bothered with. Regardless of those flaws however, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.

The paint scheme is inspired by but not an accurate representation of the "SP" version of the Age 2 Normal. There at 4-5 different 'shades' of white ranging from a 'pure' white to a murky lightish grey. The shades of white were achieved by using different combinations of grey and white primers in addition to white paints and neutral grays. The bright metallic greens were achieved by spraying Tamiya clear green over Gaianotes starbright Duralinium

The decals are a mix from the MG Qan[t], MG Char Zaku 2.0/Gelgoog 2.0 and from the Federation DX 5  decal sheet. The EFF decals are cut down versions of the EFSF decals commonly found on federation mobile suits from the UC timeline. 

MG Qant Full Saber Commission



Hey guys, this is going to be my second to last kit completed this year. This is the second MG Qan[t] I have built, unlike the first however this kit includes the option Full Saber kit made by BTF hobby. Although I panned the BTF kit as being nothing more than a poorly designed brick; I have to admit that when it's fully painted and added to the Qant[t] it looks pretty cool.

In addition to balancing the asymmetrical design of the kit, the saber provides actual balance which prevents the kit from leaning towards the shield side.

Mg Tallgeese Complete


Seriously, if it's just one mech wouldn't it called be the Tallgoose?

This is a kit I've been working on since release but I just couldn't get the paint scheme the way I wanted it to look.Before this final version this kit was paint scheme was completed and stripped twice 

This final version is based on the TV color scheme that most of us are familiar with. However I took that scheme slightly further and went with a Real Grade inspired scheme using a few shades of grey.

Overall I really like the way this kit turned out. There are a few scratches in the paint scheme, and some of the decals are scratched up. Regardless of these flaws I still like it.
