Wow, that's nicely built.

Wow, that's nicely built. Very clean. I have a pile of unbuilt gundam kits in my house I am itching to build, but I want to build them clean like yours.

Rob, what is your method for panel lining, and do you mask and just use brush/no airbrush?

Detailing and Painting

I like to use a Rapidoliner .25mm tip pen for the raised panels and a GM-01 Gundammarker for the deep panel lines.

Whenever I paint I normally hand brush. I tried airbrushing once and that was about it...

For this kit, I masked off the edges of the Build Booster's wings and painted it by hand. The enhanced rifle, you see I painted the white areas and then corrected the gray areas with paint.

Excellent build, Rob. Your

Excellent build, Rob. Your dedication to paint and panel-lining an an age of straight build hit-whoring gunpla blogs tickles my soul. I almost forgot the Full Package actually came with the large beam rifle. What I didn't know what is that it didn't come with the runner for the cross-kit compatibility connectors that came with the standalone Booster kit. Lame.

I dread thinking of painting the booster, but I can sorta forgive the monotone mold because otherwise you'd end up with some Kotobukiya-level tiny part monster that'll be too fragile.

This is sitting in the room

This is sitting in the room next to mine, as I have yet to build it. I really can't wait now.

Because of the Gundam Gunpla reviews I see on this site, I've become really interested in Gunpla models. Something I wish I had gotten into earlier. Being in Rural NC, I didn't get any exposure to this growing up. I'm 34 and I feel like I'm a little late getting acquainted with Gundam. I've really enjoyed the Gundam Build Fighters anime. Bandai has been putting the episodes with English subs for free viewing access on their official youtube channel as was said in the review (how I found out to watch). I've decided that my fist Gunpla purchase is going to be the MG 1/100 Build Strike Full Package and the MG 1/100 Universe Booster. Getting them from Will be my first purchase from them too. I have you guys here at CDX for introducing this to me, and providing me a direction in which to acquire them. I hope to get them in sometime in the next week or so.
