Hi everyone. This is the 2nd update for the SFX 1/6 scale Predator. After last week when the toning of the inner flesh body. I have done up the main paint job for the flesh toning final phase and the armor pieces itself. As you all can see. The dreadlocks are carefully masked and painted using low pressure from the compressor to get the correct toning. The Bio Mask has been painted and the inner eye pieces masked and sprayed. Maybe due to the lighting you are not able to see the mesh inside the eye piece. My camera can macro till so close …Haiz… Time to get a better one LOLZ. Now after all these are done. This kit will only left the drawing of the netting on it body and washing it before I can fill it with Plaster and set it on a base for display 🙂 Till then stay tune 🙂
Till then everyone 🙂 will post my 3rd WIP of this predator soon 🙂
Hi everyone 🙂 Been quite some time that I have not done any update. I have recently fallen sick due to flu. Bad flu indeed that make my head goes dizzy and sleepy. But I have fully recovered and are back in action again. This time I have managed to come up with a WIP for building Vinyl kit and the kit I have choose is the SFX 1/6 scale Predator from the Original Predator that feature Arnold 🙂
Ok here goes, After I have managed to clean up all the mold release agent from this kit after washing, I have clean up and cut all the parts at their connector points where I’m going to glue them together after all the paintings has been done. I will do a detail tutorial on how to prep the vinyl kit for painting in a later date and the places that you can get them in Singapore 🙂 So do look forward to it 🙂 Ok here is how it looks like after all the cleaning and cutting 🙂
With flash on as I mostly do all my painting at night. As I’m afraid that the pictures won’t turn out well due to low lighting 🙂
Ok now for the meatier part of the kit itself. Painting. For figure painting there is a few things you will have to take note. It the toning of the body itself and always start from the lighter colour to the darker colours. So always finish the flesh or the most inner parts and work your way out. The black hand paint that you see is the separator that I have created so later after all the flesh toning has been done. I will move to painting the flesh tone and adding the skin dots and netting. After all that is done then I will mask the flesh parts then follow by painting the armor and dreadlocks on the head itself.
Here is how it looks after I have finish toning the body and are ready for the final flesh paint treatments.
Arms and legs
Well that all folks 🙂 Do keep a look out for the next WIP 🙂
SMC is holding a GN-X group build which will be display at M-workshop’s annual Scale Modeling Competition Called M’Con. So SMC has gather around 30 modelers from the club to do this mess group build to show our support to local scale modeling community.
These few weeks the weather is very bad, Always raining cats and dogs so finally today I managed to get this little bugger done Finally finish all the painting on this kit. I’m naming it Anubis Gn-X.
As it belongs to the unknown group I think i could add some major differences to the kit itself without taking away the 4 eyes on it face and the X on it body.
For more info on
Some modification is done like adding the horn on the head, Extending the shoulders of the kit to house the extra pair of arms i managed to salvage from my other kits. I have painted the spare arms in bronze colour to signify that the arms unit it more of a extra weapon pack that the Anubis can take upon. Actually during the planning phase I have design a bike/horse look alike from my old kits parts but later i gave up the idea as it makes no sense to have a GN-X ride a horse or bike LOLZ. Also done some detailing to the overall kit itself like the extra exhaust outlet on the internal gn-drive and some other outer armor parts of the kit itself.
If you had notice I had added some semi-hieroglyphs on the major parts of this GN-X itself. The hieroglyphs is not accurate but it just to give it a feel of egyptian itself. I will still have to work on the weathering so the art work will blend in. Another thing to note it after I have managed to fixed the kit up the 1st time after painting. It somehow gave me a feeling it looks like a Armored Core kit LOLZ.
So far this is the update and i will do the panel lines and decals after this weekend as there are the airbrushing course coming up this Sunday 🙂 It gonna be a busy weekend everyone :). So I shall not keep everyone waiting. This is my Anubis GN-X and it going to bear the code number 00
Hope everyone like it 🙂
Hi everyone. I have been busy working on the mess group build for my friend’s year end Competition called the M’Con. I have gather the members from SMC to start this group build and it will consist of only GN-X 1/144 scale from the Gundam OO series. So while busy with all these I’m also in the mid of completing my BAKUC competition piece. So in the mean time I also took some time out to work on some kits which is not Gunpla related 🙂 I’m used to work on Vinyl and Resin kit before I start Gunpla a long time ago. So in order to prevent myself from burning out from Gunpla I took some time to search for vinyl and resin kits from one of the SMC participant model kit shop and pick up this solid Female Guyver kit. It quite tall and standing 1/6 scale 🙂 It didn’t come with a base so I build a custom base for her to stand 🙂 I will do a more in-depth Work In Progress on my next Vinyl Kit so everyone can have a better understand on how to construct vinyl kits for a change 🙂
That all everyone. Now for a simple hint on the next Vinyl kit that I’m going to work on. It comes in silent and invisible….. 🙂 Happy guessing 🙂
Hi everyone. These are one of my work that I did some time back. Now finally can take some clear photos to show 🙂 Enjoy these photos in the mean time till my new work is up soon 🙂 To give you all a hint. It not Gundam Model kit at all LOLZ 🙂
That all folks 🙂 Till Next Time 🙂 See you all soon 🙂

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.
