RG Aile Strike AIF version Complete

Finally, project Aile Strike AIF complete. I actually have a story about this color scheme which similar what waylander9 did on his Forgoten warrior. I had this kit during November if i'm not wrong and i has a lot of complain about this kit when i got it out of the box. Luckily the paint really done its job for helping me tightening the joints. I guess most of my complain solve except the palm issues. You might notice that this unit is left handed which is similar to my MC Hi-Nu Gundoom. The same thing happen which i screw up on the right palm. As for now, lets check out the painting list:
-Mr.Surfacer 1000
-Mr.Surfacer 1000 white
Color Scheme:

-Blue color (mixture of character Mr.Color blue and Mr.Color metallic blue)
-Red color (Mr. Color metallic red)
-Gold color (Mr.Color gold)
-Silver color (Mr.Metal Color Silver chrome)
-Black color (Mr.Color metallic black)
-White color (Mr.Surfacer 1000 white)

The color scheme almost original except for adding silver and gold color in. The yellow color has changed to gold since there are not much yellow color part (i lazy to prepare another empty bottle for pouring out the yellow color). Most of the inner frame was painted in either silver or gold and the rest are metallic black which hide beneath the armors. The concept of the inner frame color was inspired from a post in www.modelers-g.jp/ but that guy done it on PG Aile Strike. This is the first time i'm using Mr.Surfacer 1000 white to replace the Mr.Color white as white color because i was running out of white color paint and it is definitely a bad alternative solution. There are two reason explain why it is an bad alternative solution, first is the surface is easily crack after the paint dry (maybe the chemical material is different from normal paint) and second is it come in matte surface which is not friendly for panel line. The Mr.Color character blue somehow made the entire blue color look a bit glossy and the red color is a bit over vivid again which make it look more like blood red.

Another challenge come from this kit is the markings and foil stickers. Most of it is extremely small and not easy to hold for application. As for the panel line, i bought an 0.1 unipin fine line which i mentioned before but it still too thick for this kit. I guess it enough for my frustration on my project here since i actually quite happy with the end result :) and lets check out the photos (Story of the AIF is on the bottom of this post)

New lootz and updates (metal decal, solar turn table)

I guess it should go back to normal posting after few promotion post for both iShop2go and GK. So here we go, my new lootz. The paint was from local hobby shop while other such as the single action airbrush, decal and solar turn table are from M.G.S2u.com.
i only realize that i run out of white color when i start painting the RG Aile Strike and my solution was replace the color with Mr.Surfacer white (more detail on this later). Other color was bought as extra supplies as my next project after the RG Aile Strike don't need much of painting on the outer armors.
Alright, as for the single action airbrush, I bought this as the back up form my current airbrush. And the design of this airbrush is slightly different which it can attach to the empty bottle directly. Since its cheaper, i don't hope it can perform better than my current airbrush so let me test it and re-post this again later. By the way, i like direct attachment for the empty bottle to the airbrush because the step for cleaning the airbrush is easier before change to other color (just swap a bottle with thinner and spray for few second then change to other color, isn't this way is more simple).
And this is my favorite loots. This thing is like magic. Without any battery and turn on the light, it automatically turn. I heard there is another version made from China is a lot more cheaper but the seller said the stock will only reach by next few weeks. Man, if you're looking for some continuous turn table without wasting money on battery, this is the one. The only thing that made me feel not satisfy with this is the the size. I hope i can get something bigger.

Decal, decal, decal. Metal decal. I remember i saw this in one of the PG Strike Freedom but that set cost about US$ 20. As for this, it use for MG Astray Red Frame and it only cost me.... less than RM 5. Believe it or not. Haha.
And another best lootzzzzzzzzzzzz.... new toys. Well, it's not entirely mine and it belong to my company but as i'm part of the company, i have the right to use it for my personal usage.
Another important stuff, the flash. We don't have enough budget to get the original Canon series but this should be good enough, the Nissin 622 Mk 2.
Lastly, my own updates which affecting the blog. Lot of paint, massive masking and lot of MESS!!! The worst part is my painting station was totally...... speechless. All i can say now is, have to wait for another few days until all painting progress in my house complete and i will only able to continue the paint job on the RG Aile Strike.

Updates again (Video of FAZZ, RG paint work, coming review, GK Contest, busy busy busy)

Studies

Well, although i have finished my final few weeks ago and the result are all out ( pass all, hehe) but i still have final year project catching up in this short sem (already started). Things get more rush and stress for this single assignment compare to other subjects. Have to catch up for completing one chapter per-week for some market research topic. I still not sure will i able to complete it in time but with the pace i'm catching up, it should be able (I CAN'T SAY NO OR DELAY!!!). So, after completing this thing which due on 26th December 2011, there should be a real long break where i can start some huge project again ( i have some in my mind, try guess what it is, the clue is my favorite gundam series)

Hobby

Although the FAZZ have completed but i still owe someone a video which made for you guys too (it was quite fun for editing video) and have to start the RG Aile Strike painting process soon ( lot of thing to fix). The concept of the RG Aile Strike will remain its originality but i found some new concept for the color scheme recently (most of you has seen it before, the clue is from G.G site). At the same time, new review coming soon which is the MG Hyakushiki gold plated version (1st generation). That should be a simple project for me since there are so many things i have to do this month (follow up the FAZZ video and RG Aile Strike painting with my final year project). I pick that kit for this month review because most of the original part such as gold plated armors is my favorite and therefore, there are only few area require paint for the MG Hyakushiki which allow me to finish the kit faster than usual. 

GK contest

So, the contest ended few days ago but i haven't make an ending post for it as there are something i have to confirm before making a ending post of the contest. And for those who participated, all i can say is thank you for your participation and your efforts will not be wasted. The ending post will be here within this week and  the selected bloggers will be announce this or next week. 

Work work

There are some changes with my freelance job and things might get more busy since there are many things are still in developing stage but luckily there are some people working with me.
Summary

All i can say is, it seems i'm quite busy this month but i will try to continue update this blog as frequent as usual and hopefully everything run smooth so that my time management can work well which allow me to post more thing here. 
So, stay tune on the thing that i mention i will post soon. Thanks for the visit.

My entries



Well, the picture above is not the kit i want to participate in Bakuc Malaysia, it just a ticket for my entry. I need to buy one product from the local gundam distributor in order to get the receipt as part of the entry requirement. 

I have 3 option for my entry for Bakuc Malaysia second round which held in Sungei Wang Kuala Lumpur on 18th November 2011, one more week to go. (Options are below):

 MG Rezel
 
NG 1/100 Astray Red Frame with custom flight pack MG Aile Striker
 And my latest work, MG FAZZ Sentinel version.

I actually prefer to put in FAZZ but i'm worry the schedule will be a bit tight since i still got the backpack, weapons, panel line and decal haven't complete. Therefore, MG Rezel might have higher chance but the custom Astray i had might able to create some surprise there with it custom MG Aile Striker. Really hard to choose. What's your call?

FAZZ Updates


Finally, it can stand on its own. Most of the parts are complete except the back pack and the weapon. I never expect the color scheme that i choose for this kit before the armor will look something like VPS off version mobile suit (from Seed) or RX-93 Nu. Luckily I decided not to add any yellow, orange or red in the color scheme or it look exactly like RX-93 Nu gundam color scheme but it already look like VPS off version mobile suit.
