  1. Gundam Plamodel Thread IV

    A PG I would build for you, problem solved.
  2. MOSPEADA 1/48 LEGIOSS RESIN RE-ISSUE

    Hey everyone, quick hump-day update! Molds are done, initial test-shots are excellent. I'll start the casting process on Friday, and from there I'm just waiting on the decals (which are also done) to arrive.

    I suspect that the empty spaces are merely the trade-off for the transformation particularities in order to bring it closer to the Anime. It really doesn't bother me at all. If anything, just cram a couple extra HBT cans in there!

    New neck.
  5. MOSPEADA 1/48 LEGIOSS RESIN RE-ISSUE

    Sweet build, Emiliano, would you object if I share it on social media? You would be credited as the builder, of course! Also, quick BUSTER update: I've finished refining the parts... As expected, I discarded the neck part I made and went with something else. Pics will be posted later. Basic mold-prep has begun, and I thought I'd take a moment to issue a PSA to help with your building process. Occasionally, you will see these little triangular shapes on some parts: these are not details, they're simply vents I use to free trapped air bubbles in more complex shapes as a means to get better castings. Just wanted to mention that because I've seen a couple of builds where those vents weren't removed
  6. Where Can I Get Decals Made?

    Thanks for the suggestions, guys. I tried contacting Samual decal twice: once through his site and again via Facebook and no reply to either. I ended up finding a printer in Australia who works with ALPS printers and things are moving along nicely.

    Most impressive work, Brett! The chicken wire for rebar is very clever indeed and adds extra realism to an already beautiful build.

    Hi guys! Today is update day! Figured I'd take some time to go through the minor updates of the kit before I start mold-prep. As you will see, they're relatively minor but they will make for a nicer and sturdier model. the first update shown in pics 001-003 concern the hip joints. The first pic shows the separate hip-joint parts: the two gray H-shapes on the left and the two smaller brown parts on the right. On the original kit, these parts were separate to maximize poseability, but as they needed to be pined, were quite small, and held a significant amount of overhead weight. Therefore, I thought it would be safer to mold them as one combined part (pic 002.) You can still get a wide range of poses with the new part, and now the built kit will be sturdier. Please note that it will still need to be pinned. The next change, as I have mentioned previously, is the neck. On the original-issue, the neck was a double-jointed I-beam that attached to the body at the chin, similar to the old Imai 1/48 kit. After a moment of clarity, I realized that because of my transformation design, I could opt for a more conventional neck unit. It deletes one part in the kit (I can mold it in with the torso) and still offer a full range of poseability. That covers the mods for Soldier Mode. Should there ever be demand for a Fighter, I'll have to do more scratchbuilding, but that's a whole other kettle of fish!

    Of course it's not too late. Welcome aboard, sir! The improvements are actually quite minor, I'll post a pic of the new neck later this week. Tiny part, but will make Buster look much less awkward. A few people have been asking about getting extra decals, so here's thew lowdown: they're being handled by a contractor in Australia (yes, that's how far I have to go to get custom sh*t done nowadays!) Since they have to be shipped from far (time delay) and the sheets themselves are quite big & pricy, I had to anticipate demand and try to plan accordingly. I ordered barely more than the planned run, but I will see if I can get them to do extras. As for the hands, this is what I plan to include in each kit: https://hlj.com/product/YLSPPC-TN83
  10. MOSPEADA 1/48 LEGIOSS RESIN RE-ISSUE

    Hi guys! The 1/48 BUSTER (Legioss) revival is officially underway. You can send payments now. Also, please let me know what version (H, I or Z) you'd like. You will get all three heads, but I need to know what decals to include in your kit. For those who are new to this, I'll send you a private message with the payment info.

    The conflict is more aesthetic than ethical.
  12. If they're giving the series a DVD release, maybe there's hope of seeing a clean (and complete) version of that awesome theme song as well.
  13. MOSPEADA 1/48 LEGIOSS RESIN RE-ISSUE

    Ready your wallets, guys. I'm going to start taking payments next week.
  14. MOSPEADA 1/48 LEGIOSS RESIN RE-ISSUE
