A refresher build with no pressure, no time limit, no rules, just me having fun for the last 6 months (started when we sailed out to offshore work installations last June)..... this build is on and off together with the "Briegel" done by Zluca - Kallamity.
Still here and still making kits and other forms connected to the hobby.... but just to revive my blog, i manage to save some decent photos of the 1/144 Modified Ginn before--- looking at it now makes me smile due to the color scheme ---- BUMBLEGINN! :-P
I got to prime the big pieces, now that i can see all the pieces without the contrasting colors and scratchbuilt parts i can continue to build up details armors as per my concept.
Started working on the main cannon mounts already and awaiting for the cast of the cannon gunbarrels for there will be 4 cannons for this mech.
Time for a little update on this.... not much but this will show the direction of the whole build. (i hope??)
before i posted photos of the armors treated with texturing... all the major armors are done the same way..
small detailing, like adding bars to the shoulder armor (nothing really drastic to keep the original briegel design.) The concept is like the briegel having upgrade parts to identify it as one of the leader of a Briegel Battalion ...Hahahah "THAT will be Awesome!
I would like to share this 1/144 Modified Rick Dias.
This was my first attempt to do a modified rick dias ground type and serve as the template for its "Big Brother". The build itself is not that advance and shows my earlier years of modeling build wise... but still proud of this work up to this day, and i can still think of the work in progress very clearly, scavenging any household items and different mecha scraps.... ah those where the days!!
This modified podball is the main unit and have a utility trailer / command center connected at the back for a diorama entry piece back in 2005, gladly it placed and was sent as one of our country's rep. for the BAKUC competion in Hong Kong...
Here is one of my favorite completed work way back in 2008, and i just wanted to put this up on my blog for saving, I modified it to have a full armor look and added a diorama to complete the build... Just shows how much I love working with monoeyed mechs.... enough talk and i will just leave the photos to speak for itself.. :-P
The blog has been floating in cyberspace without any updates for the past months.... but hey it still exist, with the holidays and all my reasons not to update the blog.... well major one is still me figuring this blogging thing... ahahahah.. and let us not dwell on that.
With all that out of the way i started back working on models again, and let us not forget F.A.T.S.O, which is pretty much overdue, but it is what it is, we need it to look good for modelers out there to love. F.A.T.S.O. is still a go and i add one more on the workbench ..........................
1/35 BRIEGEL resin kit designed and sculpted by ZLUCA.
I will also enter him in the 2012 MECHA competition at MAC forums per invitation by my good friend Alex a.k.a Oceansean.. Thanks Man!!
So here are some progress on Briegel...
Started with the big armors and internals, adding textures using putty/sponge and some detailing using MSG's, i also re-scribed some the panel lines on the kit to achieve more depth.
