June 2016, I wanted a break from working on Neo Zeong project and decided to make use of Tetsujin 2017 competition to build a PG. My objective was just to build a PG and not go extreme with customization.
Without wasting any time, I started working with the end in mind once I snap fit my kit.
Wanting to keep it simple and not doing any huge customization allow me to focus on scribing and pla-plating details.
I was working on the dio concurrently with my gundam until there was a change in dimension.
From 50cm x 50cm x 50cm to 40cm x 40cm x 50cm.
My length was affected as I have to cut out 10cm and cramp 2 pg closer together.
The composition doesn't appeal to me and thus a change of posing is required.
At this point of time, I am still facing a problem with dio. Although my length is within 40cm, the dio look bad, and I was facing heigth issue.
I went with my gut feel and started to break it down further.
Ultimately, I feel it a blessing in disguise for the change in dimension as now I actually this base than the original one.
All those live feed on Facebook helps me stay focus on some of the most boring and tedious part of this hobby... masking... I actually use up 2 rolls of tamiya masking tape... T_T
The painful masking pay off at the end of the day.
Assembly the kit took me about another 5 days before I am able to do a photoshoot.
The moment I complete the shoot of the gundam, I quickly took my base out and assemble them together.
I am really excited to check out the entries for Tetsujin and I believe it is going to be a great event. Can't wait to see Eday, Joshua and many other great modeller.
