SG50 Mecha Build - Remembering our past, building our future

Earlier this year, Toymaker suggest the group of us to build something for commemorating our country Singapore. It our country golden jubilee and we wanted to show respect to our late Mr Lee Kuan Yew as well. 

This build goes out to our pioneer generation for all the tough time that they have been through to make Singapore what she is right now. I want the kit to be modernize, keeping up to date while remembering our past.

It's only natural to use the RX-78 Gundam as the main kit to represent the pioneer generation as it is the first mobile suit in the Gundam franchise.

Looking forward, our country is still a young nation on the ascendant and freedom could be lost if we do not cherish or protect it. The crescent painted on the shield symbolize how important is it to defend what our pioneer generation have build for the nation.

The multiple shade of red and white to represent a modernize society, pervading it purity and virtue to all citizen.

Babartos Gundam - HAG Group Build

Glad to take part in this group build organize by HAG once again and honestly there were moments where I was thinking of completing it due to work commitment. 
It been 6 months working in a new environment and the amount of work load is quite taxing, there wasn't much of a personal time left but at least there is enough time to sleep. Haha... 

I feel relieve to be able to complete this kit otherwise it will definitely be back in the box.
There were some learning points that I pick up from this build, for example securing the kit in mid air with rods, paint chip with masking sol, using powder for addition details on the base and some other minor points. Since it was a really rush job, I wasn't able to fix those seam line which is kinda disappointing for me. 

This will probably be the last kit that I complete in 2015 and I look forward to 2016 where I will wanna explore into other kit and design.
