As the engineering behind Gunpla becomes more and more advanced, so do the inner workings of our favorite bipedal war machines. For years, Perfect Grade and Master Grade kits have included intricate inner frames. That detail has now been extended to the Real Grade line and nearly perfected in kits like the MG Sinanju. Because of all the moving parts, some people might find the task of painting an inner frame quite daunting! In actuality, all it takes is planning and patience. Read on to learn more!

Nice job building your kit! Now it's time to take it apart. Despite feeling like wasted effort, it's very useful to build the kit first and then disassemble it to paint. Assuming you have selectively trimmed your male pegs throughout the build, then this step should not take long. I also have some tips and tools that can make this step much simpler.

On to part 2 of my MG Mk-II modeling walk through! This post will cover everything related to the assembly process. I'll be approaching this build with regards to painting, but considering that a lot of people just enjoy snap building their gunpla, I'll also include some tips to help your unpainted models look their best. Read on to get started!

After a month long trip to Singapore, I'm back and writing some posts again. As my first summer project, I've decided to write a walkthrough that documents my modeling process from start to finish. Although others have done this sort of thing before, I think that seeing how different modelers work can be very beneficial to those just getting into Gunpla. For this walkthrough, I will be building and painting the MG Mk-II Titans Ver 2.0. Despite being one of the first kits to receive the 2.0 treatment, the Mk-II is a very solid kit with some awesome articulation. I'm looking forward to building this kit and I'm excited to document my progress. My next post will cover the very first steps: tools, denubbing, and construction in general. Thanks for reading, I hope to make these tutorials very informative!
Although I was unable to paint or write any posts while I was away, I did talk to some very knowledgeable modelers and pick up a few supplies. For anyone interested, read on for details!

The MG Astray "Sky Blue" Frame is complete, and it's hard for me to even imagine it being red at this point. This was a great project, and I had a lot of fun doing the custom paint job. I'll be parting ways with it soon though, and I'm very excited to hear what my client thinks! If you'd like your own commission just shoot me an email and I'd be happy to see what I can do:
