Come, Crusader: Let Battle Commence!
There is a veritable smorgasbord of interesting designs that come from the various “Build” series of Gundam. With slight mods and totally custom suits, and all points in between, there’s got to be something in there for everybody. One of the first kits from this series that I’ve built is the “Gyancelot”. The Gyancelot is […]
Putting the “Cannon” in Cannon-Fodder!
In the world of Gundam, everybody knows that the GM is the suit most likely to be destroyed in any given battle. I think it stands for “Getting Mulched” or “Give up, Man”, because these dime-a-dozen cannon-fodder Gundam wannabes usually take it to the face in the worst way possible. However, they are also amazingly […]
In the Armour, Darkly
I love robots. I love them even more when they play “dress up” and put on all kinds of extra armour and guns. That’s why I was really glad to get a hold of the HGUC Full Armour Gundam 7th kit from a few years ago. Of course, while the kit is nice, there’s always […]
When One Gun Just Doesn’t Do It
Sometimes, more is better. When tangling with both the Sleeves and renegate London Bell personnel, the Federation obviously felt the same way. This lead to the ReZel Type C (Defenser-b) configuration; double the cannons and even more engines than before! Check out the final flavour of Unicorn ReZel that Bandai put out: the massively over-armed […]
Small and Late but Still Rockin’!
It took a long time to get the petite and attactive F-91 Gundam into the HGUC Lineup. The lack of Gundam F91’s success and the small size of the model meant that Bandai was in no hurry to get the F-91 onto shelves. However, now that it’s here, can we really say it was worth […]
Dovenwolf vs. Dovenwolf! Beauty before Age!
Whenver a new kit comes out, it’s always interesting to compare it to an older version of the same subject. Nowhere is this more true than for Gundam kits. The improvements made in the engineering of Mobile Suit kits in the last 25+ years is astounding! Given that both the old and the new kits […]
A “Sleeves-less” Dovenwolf – ZZ for the fun of it!
Good things come to those who wait. It’s true, espeically so for Gundam kits. We’ve been waiting for overy 25 years for a nice 1/144 Dovenwolf kit, and now Bandai has delivered with the HGUC Dovenwolf (Unicorn Ver.). However, I didn’t want a Sleeves version, I wanted a ZZ version, and like a petulant 2-year […]
The Kit that Cried (Doven) Wolf!
Straight out of left field came the news that Bandai was going to kit a version of the somewhat obscure Dovenwolf from ZZ-Gundam as part of its new HGUC Unicorn MSV lineup! It has been over a quarter century since the last Dovenwolf kit was issued, so there was no doubt it would be an […]
All Your Base are Belong to Santa!
There’s that saying that something is greater than the sum of its parts. In some cases, that’s true. When it comes to modelling, that’s quite often the case, actually. However, sometimes it’s one missing piece that is required to tie everything together and give the final product that “kick in the pants” that it needs in […]
Well, it’s getting closer to Christmas again, so I figured I’d better get working on more parts of my Gundam Christmas Diorama! The newest part is the Elf Mech, a 1/144 worker mech that came with the HGUC GM Sniper II Custom. Check out this pint-sized present-hauler!
