Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 30, 2018 by getbent57

A few post back talked about the newest Gundam model kit I bought, HG Iron Blooded Orphans: Gundam Hugo.  Like the other one I put together it was fun to do.  While there are similar in some ways how it goes together.  It’s all so different at the same time.  Which it nice to to see.  This time around I found the plastic filer.  Sometimes when taking the pieces of the holder some extra bits of plastic is left on the piece.  The filer works great of getting rid of it.  Below are some pictures of the finished product.

HG_Iron_Blooded_Orphans_Gundam_HugoReally like putting together the Gundam model kit I bought last month, HG Iron Blooded Orphans: Gundam Vual.  Decided to buy another.  Took a look to see what else the local comic story had.  The Vual one was the coolest so looked for the next coolest that was with in my budget.  The one I picked is, HG Iron Blooded Orphans: Gundam Hugo.  After putting the first one together looked more info up on these.  Turns out there is a all kinds of kits from different series. Then there are different grades of kits.  These to are 1/144 scale.  Read about the higher ends ones.  Which I think are 1/100 scale.  The cost a lot more.  The trade off is they are bigger but add all kinds of extra detail and parts.  Might get one of those some day.

A few post back talked about the Gundam model kit I bought.  It is the HG Iron Blooded Orphans: Gundam Vual kit.  Still don’t know what the story is behind it.  Just know it was cool looking and I like to put these type of kits together.  Which I did the other day.  It was very much like the old ones I had years ago.  However with a lot more detail and parts.  Took me about and hour and a half to put together.  The instructions were easy to follow.  Even the very small stickers were pretty easy to get into place.

Over all enjoyed put this together.  No glue or paint needed.  Think I might buy another one some time in the future.  Just might all so look up the show this is based on.  Took some pictures of the finished product.  Which you can see below.

 

Gundam Model Kit

HG_Iron_Blooded_Orphans_Gundam_VualMany, many years ago found a bunch of robot model kits which I liked to put together.  There were based on a Gundam.  Back then had know idea what it was.  Still kind of don’t.  Just know it very popular TV, comics and books series.  Had about six or so of them.  After a while could never find them.  Years later would see them in comic book stores.  But they would want way too much money for them.  I liked to put them together but not that much.

Well the other day a local comic book store was running a weekend sale for these kits.  They had %25 off the sticker price.  Took a look at them a bought a look and bought one.  It is HG Iron Blooded Orphans: Gundam Vual.  Have know idea what the means.  Bought because it was cool looking.  Will be back with pictures when it’s together.

Car Model Kit

Hornby_Airfix_Ford_Fiesta_RS_WRC.jpgThe car model kit and supplies I order came in the mail the other day (August 25, 2016).  Took a week to get here which is not bad at all since the stuff came all the way from B.C..   The kit is the Hornby Airfix Ford Fiesta RS WRC Car.  It is a 1:32 scale.  Which I didn’t realize is pretty small compared to kits I put together when I was kid.  All so bought a tool kit > here.  Not sure how good it will be.  But better than using an old pocket knife.  Just need to get some glue and paint.  In that department.  Plan to keep it simple.  May be three to four colours.  Below are some pictures of the items.

Hornby_Airfix_Ford_Fiesta_RS_WRCA few post back talked about model kits and how I used to put them together has a kid.  Will have ordered one online.  As well as a few supplies.  The three things I order are from Amazon.ca.   Are a four set paint brushes and a tool set, which you can see > here.  Never had any a tool set before so this will make putting the kit together mush easier.  The mode kit is a Hornby Airfix Ford Fiesta RS WRC Car.  You can see what that looks like > here.    All I have to get now is some paint and glue.  Going to get those locally.  There is a craft store in town I hope has the glue.  We be back with an update when the order comes in.

ModelKit.jpgBack in August of 2011 made a post talking about model kits.  How I would like to get back into putting them together.  But never did.  When I was a kid made many of this.  Sure they didn’t turn out so great.  Mostly because I didn’t know what I was doing.  All so didn’t have the tools.  Back then was well, you could find all kinds of kits to buy.  There was a whole section in the toy aisle.  There was even a hobby store in the mall.  Those days a gone.  However the internet to the rescue.  Found some nice kits and tools on my favourite online store, Amazon.ca, for some reasonable prices.  So strongly thinking about ordering some stuff.
