1/100 Gundam Exia

After a four month hiatus, I'm back.... Many things have happened in my life since the beginning of 2008. Things that have changed me as a person completely but I am back now. The Gunpla purchases have continued and the building has never ceased. I just have not had any time to take pics.

All this time I ave been working on my Exia, every single part of this kit has been painted and I did not use any stickers that came with the kit. I did use some of the stickers and dry transfers that came with my MG Wing Ver. Ka. The Exia looked a little plain so I decided to add some markings. The Celestial Being logo on the shield came from the March issue of Dengeki Hobby. I am quite happy with the way the kit turned out.

I am torn between what model I'm going to build next, I am deciding to with either the MG Destiny, MG Unicorn, MG F91, 1/144 Sword Calamity or just wait for the MG Impulse. For now enjoy the pics and give me some feedback. Also I apologize for the time stamps on some of the pics but I am using my father's camera and I realized it a bit late. Kinda lazy to take a whole new shoot ^_^.

  • Hey, i'm pretty much newbie to modeling but I've been building gundams for years. So i've got plenty of questions if i could please trouble u with them.

    What kind of brand paints did you use??? Did u airbrush??? How did you fill in the panel lining? What brand primer did u use???

    Right now, there's no way i can afford an airbrush so i have to make do with these paint spray cans i saw at my local hobby store. Sadly i've never painted a gundam in my life. And i don't have a job yet to fund my hobby since i'm only 16.
    Well, thanks in advance!

  • I use Gunze Sangyo (GSI) Acrylic Hobby Color. I did airbrush the entire thing. The prime that I use is Mr. Surface 1200 also made by GSI. For the panel lines I use Sakura Micron .005 pens and also Gundam Marker GM-20 Brush Tip. I am about to start using Koh-I-Noor Rapidograph pens for the panel lines with my next kit.

  • Hi, I am really really interested in buying a gunpla right now.. Haha I am 18 by the way, I recently finished watching Gundam 00 both of the season.
    But I am still a noob and know nothing about gunpla or whatsoever and I have been researching a bit. I am a bit tight on money right now but I really wanted to buy Exia, plz can u recommend to me whether to by between Hg or Mg (and which scale)
    My friend whom is an avid gundam fan (already own quite a few gunpla) advice me to buy Mg compared to Hg coz it is more worthwhile.
    So whats ur opinion and advice for me ?
