this may sound a bit boring, pointless or unnecessary.. but i still want to share it out.. alright.. do you know that building and customizing gunpla come in different level and each level consist of different stage.. i know i'm not qualify to said that what we use to called pro level, rookies, semi-pro or bla bla bla.. i think i should call it as
and each of this level consist of different stage such as
-clean assemble with just panel line and foil sticker
-painting some unpainted area from the original OOB
-painting part that require foil stickers
-decal and markings
-sanding and clearing nub marks
-painting entire kit (airbrush or hand paint)/(original color scheme or customize color scheme)
-customizing with additional part form from epoxy putty, pla-plate, parts from M.S.G and etc...
-and lastly.. diorama.. (another level and stage)
most of us enjoy and hate different stage in different level.. example like straight build level.. i use to enjoy the assembling process since this level will normally consist of clean assemble with panel line and foil stickers, decal and marking.. it can be said a stage that only required nipper or side cutter, gundam markers and sand paper to clear nub marks.. once move into the next level such as minor detailing or minor customization.. part that i enjoy will be painting the unpainted area, try not use foil stickers and more panel line.. that is the level i hate the stage of assembling and applying foil stickers.. after sometime where i always stuck in some process for too long which make me spend too much time for the same kit.. that is the time i prefer the assemble process back.. i will feel bored after spending too much time on the same kit which is the part we need to put more patience into it.. but at the same time.. new kit coming in and can't wait to start another new project and that is why there are some many undone WIPs out there.. so.. for now.. i do like the assembling process back due to two reason.. starting a new kit and also consider the most simple stage cause what you need to do is following the manual from the kit.. sound weird isn't it.. but of course the best part will be the last part.. posting the complete kit to the internet and share with others.. which level i fall in now.. i will say depend on what and how i execute the new project but for now.. i never make any heavy detailing and customization yet.. i don't even have a proper weathered kit yet.. i guess that explain where am i now..
and i'm enjoying the assembling process now.. what kit.. let the picture tell you..
