MG Exia WIP 4

this is the feet right.. alright.. whatever.. my English on human part was very bad.. lets get back to the point.. the so called feet here is pretty impressive with those movement it can made.. but too bad it also decrease the stability of the normal standing post because of those joint that create more mobility become loose.. not sure is it my problem or the original design flaw..

guess i'm going to finish this kit at another two more WIP soon.. this is the legs part.. i remember the 1/100 version do have inner frame as well but not as detail as this.. require a lot of panel line also.. especially on those part at the back.. the part for those GN blade which is design to be slide out from the hip (is that called hip?) was quite loose.. but then the ball joint for for those GN blade was quite tight.. the whole structure for the inner frame for this kit got a lot of different as compare to old MG even though it using MG Strike pclycap.. not much detail of the inner frame show but only space or slot for armor.. no sliding armor also..

same like those GN condenser at hand and the side of the head..

sliding part from inner frame but doesn't affect the armor..

TA DA!!! complete leg..

MG Exia WIP 3

time for the arm.. nothing must to say here since in terms of proportion, design, and parts.. everything is good.. even those stripe is nice even tough now is a bit tide.. but the slot for beam saber behind the shoulder seems a bit loose. i mean it just cant hold up and stay there nicely.. not the beam saber easily come off..

those picture with the red dot circle is to show the sliding armor behind the stripe.. Z mess up with his stripe with paint.. guess this should be the reason the we should not paint those stripe so we can see the sliding armor beneath..

same as those at the side of the head in previous post..

as i said.. those stripe is pretty strong.. before the entire hand connect to the chest.. the shoulder just can't stay at the normal position so i have to use the stick to hold it..

MG Exia WIP 2

i quite impress with the amount of the parts that needed for the head.. too bad it doesn't come with two complete heads for normal and repair version which means part swapping needed in order to transform to repair version.. every part molded separately.. just some minor panel line needed.. even the grey color part behind the "mouth" are molded separately which 1/100 version is not and need to be paint.. the stickers is just nice.. no matter for the side or the front stickers.. side stickers are easier to applied than the chest thanks to the flat surface.. i think that is the part they called GN condenser right.. not those stripe right.. notice that those GN condenser actually need two clear part each side.. which are the true clear color (which have no color at all but like some lens that create fish eye effect) and dark clear green color as an cover on the outside.. pretty impressive here.. like the yellow color part that molded separately.. i paint my 1/100 exia on that part too.. but no panel line whereas here i can have it..

MG Exia WIP 1

it've been a while to upload those WIP picture for this kit.. working.. just not free and tired..

so.. here is the body or part.. the complete body part really look not much different in terms of it proportion as compare to 1/100 version.. but of course it have much more detail as compare to 1/100 version.. especially on the yellow color part that stay on the chest.. the color of the clear color part has been paint by clear dark green as what i show in previous post from the runner "A".. behind the yellow color parts on chest was also a dark green clear color part to hold the entire yellow color part on the chest.. stickers are totally useless here.. i applied it but due to the round surface on the chest so i decided to leave it so the light can come out from the whole without cover by stickers..

so bad.. setsuna got his legs cut half in order to fit into the cockpit.. but i can see there is a little bit of improvement in terms of the detail on the cockpit..

daijoube.. markings are inside the dark green color cover.. so.. stickers? don't need the stupid sticker here..

the complete inner frame.. haven't prepare of learning to detail the inner frame like ngeekhiong yet..

quite impress with the detail for the slot for GN drive.. like what Z said in his blog..

thats all for the chest now.. update a bit slow here.. gap in between update and assembling are quite far.. haha.. now already reach the part of building the legs..

the latest news

after reading the news from Ngeekhiong and gundam part from Dannychoo.. i was shock.. totally out of idea of the those future release gunpla..

here is the list

MG exia gundam roll out color: damn.. so fast on color variation and why not other variation like alavanche exia or astrea..

MG astray blue frame revise: OMG.. first.. why not called MG astray blue frame second L.. i guess a lot of people can figure it out why not MG red frame first.. because of the just released PG red frame.. and some people even have thought that MG red frame that eventually release in the future will come with flight unit or other extra equipment.. yeah.. i hope that too even the chances is quite low.. and finally some new MG seed series and it was the third new type MG from seed series this year.. hope Bandai will fix the weight problem from the giant tactical sword.. and i bet there must be some people will modified this MG to astray gold frame variation after it release.. and one more thing.. have to wait the review from the runners to tell us the future release of it variation.. will it come with some extra part to convert it back to normal astray blue frame?. mm.. good question right.. if yes.. custom variation paint done must be a lot in everywhere soon.. and that is the fun thing to do..

PG oo raizer: release in November.. so.. 2 PG going release this year.. and imagine that people may work on this variation too.. it gonna be crazy.. weight issue will always be the problem for this kit.. hopefully Bandai will improve it as well.. isn't Bandai has pushing so hard and fast for oo series product line.. less than 2 year for an PG release from the anime.. this is crazy.. the picture from the gundam expo 2009 that show this kit really an awesome idea.. cover with some black cloth.. feels mysterious.. and like surprise gonna coming up soon..

1/100 astray mirage frame: damn.. stop it Bandai.. the 1/100 variation astray has increase in its number too.. i have long not update my 1/100 astray variation since i got the astray red frame, astray blue frame second L(so glad that it release in MG 1st than red frame that maybe solve the weight issue), and the gold frame amatsu, been so bore of building the same thing.. love the bazooka from 1/100 astray gold frame.. but still got no money to implement the plan yet.. not even the 1/100 astray green frame.. have to plan for zeta plus variation( the blue zeta plus custom)..

not really interested on other like the HGUC Kshatriya, HGUC Ground Type Gundam Ground Combat Set, MG guntank or the HGUC FA Gundam 7th Unit.. those HGUC consider need higher skill for the detail to look nice to me.. but quite interested on those 1/100 SEED VS Astray: 1/100 Gale Strike, Hail Buster, Regen Duel and Nix Providence.. finally 1/100 duel variation but why not blu duel first.. not interested on SHCM-Pro Unicorn Gundam.. part swapping need for transformation to destroy mode.. mm.. i hate part swapping because it mean need extra space to store swapping parts and may easily lost it in future..

damn.. this year end going to squeeze my wallet to dry for all i interested.. planning for a PG Aile Strike for next chinese new year but the PG oo raizer.. really got nothing to say.. will i fall into PG addiction after next chinese new year?. it gonna be a bad thing if i happen.. sorry that i lazy to make the link of all those picture or copy and upload here.. i've been so tired this few days.. just want to express my feeling about the future release here..

MG Exia runners and parts

alright.. total of 15 runner.. i guess that normal since it got no back pack unit or additional armor which will make it have more parts.. but parts at every runner are quite neat.. part of the runners.. got a lot of other extra parts as well.. clear blue color part (which i don't know whats the name of it, is it called GN condenser? ).. just for additional.. runner "K" are not in but there is a runner "J2".. guess it use to replace it.. i'm damn scare that i lost one of the runner..

not planning to paint the kit since all the part that come in different color has molded separately.. thanks to Bandai have improved the design a lot.. can be said all the part has been plan, molded and design in detail like been modified by pro.. not think about top coat either.. even the clear color had painted into dark clear green.. i saw many people has make the NG 1/100 exia using flat top coat to make the color look more flat.. but the color from the anime was look darker and a bit shiny.. just plan to do the panel line and apply the dry decal.. will use the foil stickers as well.. they look quite nice..

two LED light come together.. need to find the batteries.. hope i can find it tomorrow..

screw.. why it got screw.. the pc runner was same as strike.. but those screw are under the shoulders in strike but i have check the manual and here is not.. haven't spot it where it place yet..

the "GN condenser".. look in clear blue but it a little bit shiny actually.. in some shiny rainbow color..

mm.. i'm still very curious why it still got clear color part since it already have dark clear green part at runner A.. i mean those for the legs and hand.. those curve part looks like magnifier lens type..

bling bling.. cool!!!

just don't know why.. feels like the cloth just will give me problem.. i heard Z that he will make it look as dull as it can.. mm.. should paint it with grey so it look dull?

alright.. as what we can see here is a lot of tiny parts which not molded separately or painted nicely in NG 1/100 exia has molded separaely and painted nicely here.. all here.. the runner "A".. even the word at the dark clear green color part come with marking (i guess that called marking right).. this kit just beyond my expectation so far.. will see after i complete it..
