[Gunpla] GN-001 Exia Gundam - PG1/60 + Resin Conversion Kit

  Commission Build 代客作品
Last build for 2020, effort spent on the resin kit is almost double of the plastic kit itself.
Lightning effect of the kit is awesome, however after replaced some parts with resin kits the movability of the whole kit is a bit degraded.

[Digimon] Wargreymon (Amplified) - Bandai Figuart Standard Model Kit


Digimon is one of my favorite childhood memory, especially Wargreymon. Although the scale and the shape of the kit is quite perfect, there are so much details (seam lines, gaps, etc) needed to work on. Also many references from the internet are painted in glossy gold color, therefore tried using matte finish instead and the outcome is really nice.
Black Wargreymon is staying in my backlog....

[Mecha] Nineball=Seraph - Kotobukiya fine scale model kit

  Commission Build 代客作品
Challenging kit from Kotobukiya again... Time spent on repairing the finished kit is almost the same as building it. Using glossy red with super clear top coat, while matte on black/grey parts to give a more contradictory expression.

[Gunpla] MBF-P03 Gundam Astray Blue Frame - Nillson Work 1/60 Model

  Commission Build 代客作品
 Product of Nillson Work, also my first PG build. This kit combined some parts from Red Frame (chest, arm and Samuri Sword). The details on the kits are great, with clear panel lines. However some of the surface is not as smooth as normal Bandai kits.
Some color changes according to customer requirement, less black and more white, looks like a custom build for snow fight :D

[GK] ボークス ∀-brand 1/8 紫電 円環の絆 ライラ・リア・ソレル


   Noticed this kit in one of my boxes eventually, with only body painted. Got no idea on which character and even when I purchased this kit...but just finish it and place in my display.
The masking job of the scythe is killing me....

[Gunpla] MSN-02 Zeong - Bandai MG/HG plastic model kit

  Commission Build 代客作品
One of my favorite build so far, combining HG and MG Zeong. At first it is only commission on MG Zeong, but some how many inner frame parts of the MG kit broken due to ABS plastic long long ago, and turn out using HG kit as the frame, and substituting some of the parts to make the overall scale much better then before.
Many details were added, together with some custom parts and panel lines. Metal parts also make some great highlights for the kit.

[Mecha]AV-98 Patlabor - Bandai 1/100 Plastic Model Kit

  Commission Build 代客作品
Set if 3 Patlabor together with lightning kit. Spent a long time to locate this kit since it is released back in 2001. By replacing some of the parts (shoulder and head) it can change into different Patlabor. Shading effect suit this kit very well, however since it is a rather old kit it is impossible to make too much pose. 
The plastic tube covering those joint look awkward at first, I tried to use lighter heating up a metal rod and slowly remove those seam lines and redo those details.
