Back to GUNDAM!!!!!!

As I start to pack up and organize for my move back the US, I have gone back to that hobby I missed Gundam!! I am working on a small resin kit as that will take up a lot less space, and resin requires fewer saws, and other things that I use for my MG builds. I am also prepping for when I can get my hands on Thehelmosengine's Drehksturm Assault type. (thanks RC) I have been waiting for this kit to be completed for a long time now and I am super excited to get my hands on one.

But enough of that for a minute. To build a 1/144 RT1590 Neo Geo version of The O Gundam. As you can see in the pictures below. The completed kit is of course not mine.
This is the completed version in the colors suggested. We all know how I feel about suggested colors on Gundam. (:

And here is the newly completed box art for the Drehksturm. Killer work by all parties involved in building this kit!!!! I am excited to get my hands on one.

Well, a small update I know. But a Gundam type update none the less. As always thanks for stopping by. T.G.

Chaos Rhino, and some conversions

I will start with the conversion...nothing major, almost a proxy change. I am taking some Death Angel Veterans, and turning them into a Stern Guard Veteran Squad for my Space Marine Army. But of course I am not going to paint them just any regular paint scheme. This is a SGV Squad from the Angels of Hate! I went with the SGV idea of preferring distance to close combat. Not a lot done here, just built, and initial wash has been done.

Onto finished works. My weekends project. A Chaos Space Marine Rhino. I am using the Emperor's Children colors. I know the name doesn't make sense, but it is the name of a CSM Chapter. So, breaking from all the black, which is really boring and overly easy to paint...not something I am into with $60 models. I spent the money, they might as well look great. Or as great as I can get them. (:

You can see I didn't put the outer doors on, I thought with the chains hanging down, the doors just looked crowded, and how would they open? So I went with a they can jump out the door look.

I built this so I would be able to store it very easily in my foam casing. So I am height limited. Taking a page from my resin building knowledge (very limited knowledge indeed) and pinned all the upper pieces in place.
As always thank you for stopping by. C/c are always welcome. T.G.
