Lack of updates

The Age-2 is pretty much all cleaned up and ready for priming, but unfortunately since I don’t have a light in my painting space, and no free time to paint on the weekend or even to get me some light, this guy will probably be stalled for a couple of weeks.

Bloody work.

Gundam Age-2 Normal 1/144 HG WIP #1 – Snap Test

My first entry for the Gundam Eclipse Summer Wars 2012 will be this guy, the HG 1/144 Gundam Age-2 Normal. As usual the first step when building a model kit will be snapping it together to more easily see where are the problem areas that I will have to work on, and get a better feel for the model.

That said there are a few spots that will need some fixing with the help of my good friends, masking tape, glue, sandpaper and friends.

Lets take a closer look.
