Alright back to business!  Didnt get around to painting this weekend. I did manage to finish customizing the forearm dealy-o's. I went with some paneling instead of custom panel lines. The thinnest scriber I had was a .7mm one so way too thick. Used some radome parts for the front and some thrusters in the back cuz you can never have enough thrust from the back. 😅 Going to try and scribe some panels into the tops of the feet for some paint separation later and then maybe do some pla-plating around some panels that are a bit bare. . . . #gunpla #plamo #mecha #anime #gundamwing #gundam #winggundam #bandai #protozero #gundamwing #gundamwingzero #nograde #gunplabuilder #ガンダム  #ガンダムw #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
Ah... like a zit you've patiently waited to get ripe and the resulting feeling of satisfaction after you pop it, thats the feeling I have right now. 🤣 Waiting for Snarl and Sludge seemed like an eternity! But enough of that, my quick thoughts on the Dinobot combiners: Again--this thing is freaking nuts! I think my shock may have been reduced because of the sheer size of KO Devastator. Anyhow I think my only complaint would be around the waist joint of Grimlock. Its so loose his waist is like a lazy Susan at dim sum 🤦🏻‍♂️ Also, after putting the TDW feet on, things are just loosey-goosey around his ankles. I assume its just the nature of beast. I mean this Combiner and KO Devastator are so large they just torture and push the plastic joints and pegs to their limits. That said, both these Combiners are hitting the floor when the next earthquake comes thru California 😂 I've also thrown in a size comparison pic with some gunpla. The measurement in that pic is also surprisingly accurate.  #transformers #volcanicus #poweroftheprimes #dinobots
It's a great day. I'll finally get to combine Volcanicus! Been waiting for the last two Dinobots for at least a month. Snarl just arrived and Sludge is on his way. Got him standing at the moment. The TDW add on really turned this Combiner into a badass! #transformers #dinobots #volcanicus #poweroftheprimes
Today's haul: @aralechan83 copped the bearguy, my kid got a Haro and I demonstrated saint like restraint and only got some sandpaper sponges while at #scgmc 😂 Afterwards though, I popped over to @brookhurst_hobbies to pick up some Alclad for the Proto Zero. 😁 . . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam #hguc #hgbf #plasticmodels #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
Yo we out here at this #scgmc Checking things out! Well.. we were. The SD Gundam got cranky cuz he was hungry so we popped out for some food. On an exciting note. My son picked out his first gunpla. A damned Haro ball lol. All good we'll glue everything together so he don't eat it. #scgmc #gunpla #gundam #haro #plasticmodels #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
At the same time I got my knock off Devastator I got some add on accessories. These backdrop hangar base things will fill out one of the levels on my shelf and make for a cool looking backdrop. Also, I got some articulated hands from a third party Chinese company and yeah. They just broke. Not even sure how the back palm plate would have gone on there even if they didn't break. 🤷🏻‍♂️ $10 lesson right there. No delicate shit from the Mainland. Alright time to get to painting this weekend! After #scgmc of course! See y'all there! . . . #gunpla #plamo #mecha #anime #gundamwing #gundam #winggundam #bandai #protozero #gundamwing #gundamwingzero #nograde #gunplabuilder #ガンダム  #ガンダムw #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
Snapped this together real quick. This thing is an absolute brute! After transforming just the legs I knew it was going to be bonkers and I.was.not.disappointed. Just looking at it I can hear Megatron screaming, "Constructacons! Merge for the kill!!" I've included some other kits for size reference. POTP Optimus and Grimlock. Titans Return Hot Rod and the 1/48 grandpa Gundam. Where the RX78 is build like an athletic basketball player, knock off Devastator is built like a weight lifter who just cares about SIZE. They're practically the same height yet KO Devastator commands so much more presence. Helps that he's neon fucking green too lol. I just need to find out where to put it! That's going to be easier said than done. 😅 #transformers #devastator
I ordered a thing! #transformers
File this under "Things to do" lol. Picked up this TF on a whim cuz I wanted to disassemble it to do some clean up and repaint. Nothing too crazy but tone down the green and maybe punch up the grey a bit. Add some weathering and panel line. It's a sick sci fi tank design. #transformers #titansreturn
😂 Well, there goes the weekend everyone! Got some snapping and a bit of customizing done. Not happy with the way the feet covers turned out but I'll clean them up best I can and move on. 🤷🏻‍♂️ On another note, I swear I have HGs that are just as big as this kit 😂 . . . #gunpla #plamo #mecha #anime #gundamwing #gundam #winggundam #bandai #protozero #gundamwing #gundamwingzero #nograde #gunplabuilder #ガンダム  #ガンダムw #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
Happy Sunday everyone! I got distracted today and snapped together an SDCS RX78. Lol I eventually got back on track and did some customizing on the Proto Zero. Arm.. armor things came out as well as I could've hoped lol. I hope the leg mods go as planned as well! . . . #gunpla #plamo #mecha #anime #gundamwing #gundam #winggundam #bandai #protozero #gundamwing #gundamwingzero #nograde #gunplabuilder #ガンダム  #ガンダムw #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
Finally finished up the VF-25F Alto version. Not anywhere near one of my good builds. I just over thunk everything and let myself get intimidated with the transforming gimmick. Well this one is a straight build with some panel lining and the craptastic stickers. I'll do better with my next Macross kit (after the proto zero). The VF-0. I got a few other Valkryries sitting in the backlog including the VF-19 I still haven't finished 😂 interestingly these are both 1/72 scale. . . . #macross #plamo #gunplabuilder #macrossfrontier #vf25 #unspacey #sms #マクロス #vf0 #hasegawa #macrosszero
#tbt been traveling for work and haven't had much time to do anything. As I sat on a plane I was going thru old photos and came across this pic. I still need to revisit these two and give them proper paint and details. I'd still like to get my hands on a regular Shiden too but that damn kit is always sold out last I checked. . . . #gunpla #pbandai #plamo #gundam #bandai #ironbloodedorphans #gunplabuilder #tekkadan #ryuseigo #hgibo #shiden #ガンダム #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
Last set! Love how this looks from a lower vantage point. This is a pretty leggy model too so it helps exaggerate the perspective. I put the MKII in there for more scale comparison. In other news planning continues for the MG Wing Proto Zero! . . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam #hguc #hgucrevive #rx78 #hgbf #plasticmodels #buildfighters #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
The upper body. Sad story about this shot is the v fin. I was laying down some gloss to panel line and this POS lint just lands on the wet gloss.  Well I tried to wipe it off but it was just dry enough to not work. So I take it and wash off the gloss and that didn't quite work. So it just looks all messed up. Cleaned it up the best I could and sealed it up. 🤷🏻‍♂️ Anyway I love the head canons cuz the metal parts just make them pop. . . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam #hguc #hgucrevive #rx78 #hgbf #plasticmodels #buildfighters #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
The Backpack. Really proud of how this came together! I asked and you guys said dual verniers and it was definitely the right call 😁 and every once in a while I take a pretty good pic! One or two more close ups of this kit and that'll be it. . . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam #hguc #hgucrevive #rx78 #hgbf #plasticmodels #buildfighters #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
Fine tuning the new photo booth setup.  I think I like it better than that box I had before. I just need a larger backdrop so I can get some pulled back shots! . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam  #hguc #hgucrevive #superdeformed #sdcs #plasticmodels #zetagundam  #機動戦士ガンダム #機動戰士高達
Did a few things with Hot Rod. Panel lined the yellow bits and removed the exhaust pipes from legs. Originally I was going to paint them but I think I like it with short pipes. You can actually see the rear wheels. Finally I think I’ll mount the gun on the roof. Mounted behind the front wheels looks kind of off to me. #transformers #titansreturn
