Gday mates , Just building Ban-Dai's Blitz Gundam GAT_X207 for a Gundam comp here in Perth next month . I've built some cheep ones for my son (5 yr old ) , theres two left from eight . hahaha . So this is my first attempt at a 1:100 scale , but not master grade .

I cut all the parts off the sprues and blu taced them to tooth picks and primed then painted them . whew !

Once than was done assembly was straight forward and only took an evening and some of the next day .
Now I've just gotta build a base .......

Nice looking kit and a great job on painting and assembly. I've never had much interest in the whole Anime thing......but I've been looking into the Warhammer stuff. Pretty cool to see them in kit form after reading the books.

Nice job Brian,

Hi Hermon , thanks for the kind comments and for looking . I love the warhammer tanks , and the painting is really good . Some younger members of my modelling club build and paint warhammer , its great to see young kids with the patience to turn these out .
I went to the craft shop and picked up a cheap MDF base that suited and had an idea of an disused damaged industrial setting for the base .


Gotta wait for the glue and modelling clay to dry and start painting tommorow .
Comments etc welcome....

Wow! Looks totally different now with something to scale it up. Are you going to do any weathering on the figure, as in powder and soot from building debree?

Hi Hermon , well I've been looking around the site and I think you are right , gotta weather this mobile suit . I think I'll go the filter and chipping road and tie in the base with washes and pigments .
