Hi everyone. My MG Force Impulse is completed. But have yet to start decaling it yet as I’m still waiting for the official Decal to arrived from Bandai which will arrived at August 🙂 So In the mean time do check it out. I guess my Digital camera is getting old and won’t be able handle good clear photos. I think I will have to get the SMC photographer to take a profile of this MG Force Impulse. I will be using this kit as an entry for my good friend Bernard’s M-Con competition as a show of support for his hardwork.

I will update everyone more in the future as I’m working very hard on my year end BAKUC Project 🙂
This is the 2nd update of my latest MG project Force Impulse. I have done mostly all the modding on the main body and the shield. Will be moving to detail and mod the back pack that comes with the Impulse. Do keep a look out for the WIP 3 coming next week 🙂 And the head is up too but without the V-fin LOLZ

Got this MG from Bernard a while ago. I have been procrastinating on that I will not be getting this but due to the Internal Frame this kit has and to me it sort of a preview of the upcomming RX-78 Ver 2.0 ( Yeah I’m a Lover of the old UC gunpla and Zeonpla LOLZ ). So I started this a few days ago. Progress is slow due to the amount of commission work that I have to clear so only have a day maybe 1 to 2 hours to work on my kit, Further more the SMC is kicking off operation soon on this 13th of July so it gonna be a very busy month for me and also I’m in the mid of doing my Bakuc project for this year. sweat.gif It almost done but still need a little tweaking. So I be putting that aside till further news from Sheng Tai on their announcement date of Bakuc 2008.
Ok here is the review I had for this kit while working on it.
MS Force Impulse Mini review
The frame use by this kit is almost the same as all the frame use by the Seed series. Mainly the Strike Freedom frame. The arms and Legs are almost the same. The only difference is the Main Upper body and lower torso. The middle intersection is not entirely hollow. The connector point is the four mini hydraulics that connect the upper torso to the lower torse with a small hollow section to house the core fighter. Only the main cockpit intersection will be connected onto the upper and lower torso. The rest will be outside the body. When without the outer armor piece it will be very protruding but after the armor has been place on. The protruding section of the core fighter won’t be that much smile.gif So Kudos to Bandai for making this design. But articulations on the torso won’t be as solid as the MG Destiny. No bending forward or backward in the centre of the torso. But it remove the overall fat looking torso that the NG or the old RX-78 has to offer smile.gif I will update more on this review when i built further smile.gif
Now for the modding I have done. Overall the proportion of the frame is good. So I had to work on the armor as there is nothing I can do to make the torso bend forward or backward without “wasting” the core fighter. So i skip that section and work on the “cosmetic” outlook of the armor. This is what I have done to on the upper body
From the left….
From the right….
Now for a close up on the chest. I have made some changes to the left and right upper chest armor pieces. As it molded in one piece. As I would want to show off the internal frame as I will use star bright silver on it to make it shine. So I had to remove the one piece molding and break it into different level. On the right upper armor I have remove the upper portion and make it separated attachement piece. And have added some detail piece under it
The upper chest armor I have added some Koto parts and some panel lines on it to make it more mechanical. I choose to make the panel line slightly different from the left and right so it will show a slight difference between them smile.gif No sense but kinda like it LOLZ. The shoulder armor piece is nicely molded and detailed. So I just gave it a few panel lines to make it look seperated smile.gif
Now onto the arms armors
You you all can see, I have added a hover groove onto the upper arms unit as when it flying without combining into a gundam. It can still land. As it don’t have wheels to land the unit. So a hover groove will make a little sense to it when it needed to land
From the back…
On the lower side of the torso…
These are the modification I have did in order to show off the upper internal frame.
Now for the Lower legs frames mods that I have did. As for the upper thighs I have done some cutting to allow the internal frame to be expose yet still maintain the gimmick for it to move. And some of the lower legs armor has been cut off to show the lower legs frame. Will be doing more detailing to it once I have done all the cutting.
I would like to announce to everyone that the 1st local Scale Modeling Club has kick off it operations.

The Shin Musha is one of my Fav Gundam. Due to the announcement but I still want to share some thingw which interest me. Go check out his website. This Shin Musha was modeled by Sandrum. See more of his works at http://anaheimmachines.blogspot.com/
Hi everyone. Just to share with everyone my one of my recent Commission Job from one of my customer. I have been working on this Hasegawa kit for quite sometime and I have finally completed it a few weeks ago. Overall the height of this kit is quite tall compare to the regular Gundam plastic model kit that I have built so I quite enjoy the process in building this. And the way of building it and the shortcuts in painting the kits is quite different from the standard Gundam Model kits too. But despise all the detail on the kit. The articulations and movable gimmicks is still far far away from Bandai. Hopefully Bandai’s Macross Frontier kit will be at this size of Hasegawa and the articulation of Gundam
Without the chest armor on( The rest is all armored-claded as they can’t be removed as it hollow. The arms can be removes but there are 2 pegs on the side of the arms that make it look ugly without the arms armor on. I actually wanted to pre-shade this kit but due to the customer’s request for it to be painted clean. No weathering and shading. So it ended up looking more old school anime type rather than the weathered mecha machine shown inside Macross Zero 🙂
Now with the reactive armor on 🙂 Full blast mode LOLz
Now I place it side by side with a 1/100 MG RX-78. You can roughly gauge how big this VF-0S kit is 🙂
Till next time 🙂 I will do an official announcement when my new club is set up 🙂
Hi everyone. I have been building non-Gunpla kit recently and this is one of the more rare kit that is release by Bandai quite a long time ago.I have recently bought it overseas from Japan. Here is a simple writeout I took from Wiki to give everyone an in-sight on what is the Big-O is all about 🙂 The animation DVDs has been release in the market quite a while ago and I’m sure you still can pick up a copy or two 🙂
[Forty years prior to the events of the series, a mysterious occurrence caused the residents of Paradigm City to lose their memories. The series follows Roger Smith, Paradigm City’s top Negotiator. He provides this much needed service with the help of an android named R. Dorothy Wayneright and his butler Norman Burg. When the need arises, Roger calls upon Big O, a giant relic from the city’s history that may hold the key to its future…The Big O deals with the nature of memories. A memory is a record stored in the brain of an organism, but in Paradigm City memories can mean much more. “Memories” (メモリー, Memorī?) embody the lost knowledge of its residents, and can take the form of records from before the Event, forgotten artifacts from the previous era or manifest themselves as recollection, hallucinations and recurring dreams.]
When I saw the show a few years ago Roger Smith always reminds me of Bruce Wayne. And the Big-O is like a super huge batman LOLZ 🙂
Ok here goes. Check it out 🙂
