24 Hours Build Challenge(SD Qubeley)

Recently,i joined this group build on gundam eclipse that requires the modeler to finish building a kit within a 24 hour time frame.I think this group build will be very interesting because i'm a very slow worker and i am curious to see whether i can complete this challenge.I don't want to be over ambitious so i choose a small SD kit which i think is easy to build and paint.The kit that i will be working on is the SD Qubeley which have been collecting dusk even since i got it years back.

The rules are simple,every models must be completely painted and have the seam lines remove.For this build,my only concern would be the curing times for the cement,putty and of course the paints.For example,putty and cement can take a few hours to completely dry so that means during those few hours i can't do anything else.For the paints,i'm worried about the clear coats because clear coats must be applied when it is sunny and when the moisture level is low.Otherwise,white spots will appear on the parts and i will have to repaint them.If that happens,i don't think i will be able to finish in time.

I will be working on this build on the 8th of October.I will be posting the wip on gundam eclipse forum and also on this blog as i'm working on it.What do you guys think?Will i be able to complete this challenge?

Speaking about group builds,there will be this Universal Century VS Alternate Century group build starting on the 10th October to 31th December,which the admins and i have organize on gundam eclipse forum.Basically this group build is spilt into 2 groups,1 group will be making UC models and the other group making AC models.And for each group there is a list of colors you choose from and create a custom color scheme for your model.Sounds interesting?Go check it out here and for more information...

Gundam Epyon "The Hydra" Week 8

It is finally week 8,time passes so quickly...This will be another short update from me,i couldn't get much done because i have fallen sick.I really don't like to give you guys these short updates because there aren't many new contents in it.I hope you guys won't find this boring.

For the wire connecting the sword and the side skirt,i put the wire into a spring to make it look more mechanic.

The paintings are progressing smoothly but very slowly due to the weather,it has been raining constantly for the past week and i can't spray clear coats on parts when it is so wet.I was planning to finish painting all the parts for the body but as you can see i only manage to finish the dark green and white parts.

For the diorama,I've added new tiles lines to the roof,but somehow i still feel something is lacking.I hope this will change when i add texture and damage onto it later on.

Wow,this must be the shortest update i've done.I thought last week was short but this week's is even shorter.But don't worry,for the whole of next week i will be detailing up the wing,dragon head and hopefully finish up the roof and pillars.So there will be tons of content next week.Cheers!
