procrastinating resting for a week or so.. ren has finally decided to get his butt up and start posting on his completed HG Exia.. XD yes pple, army has made me a very tired person. all i wanna do at home is rest and spend time with tako. unfortunately, tako is also very busy with her work, so din really have the time to blog. sorry for the long absence. i hope you guys are doing well.. i've seen soo many interesting posts! and more blooggers too! welcome welcome to the dark side! XD
i've jus finished taking photos of Exia.. his photo shoot was kinda taken in batches as i din have the time to spare to take all at one good.. so the lighting might be different in a few there.. hope you dun mind! i've enjoyed building Exia, something diff from the usual MG, but yet, it feels like a small MG itself. with inner frames and all! im starting to like HG kits again.. =) i din mention abt my past HG kits.. it was years back when i was in primary school. i collected the whole Gundam Wing and Endless Waltz Series 1/100 HG kits, they all seemed so cool to me back den, (now still) its jus that the engineering of HG kits back then wasn't as good compared to MGs. so when i built my first MG, my passion for gunpla kicked back in, collecting MG kits instead. heh. okay enough of my history. today its abt EXIA!!!! i'll let the photos do the talking.. warning, its quite photo heavy! ^^
Gotta love this pose. ^^
Fulll kit, including the extra beam dagger i scratch built. =D
Close up of the front view. many of the parts here are hand painted.. smthing tat caused this build to last so long..
Back View. but in the end i'm quite satisfied by the final product.. heh. i would say the amout of effort invested would reflect off your kit. =)
the color's slightly off here.. wonder why..
GN Long and Short Blade. sharpened them slightly.. Glossy for the blade and matt top coat for the handles.. ^^
GN Beam Saber and Dagger, with a extra hand piece..

Okays! that's all the photos that i've taken.. its been a long time since i posted so many photos at one go.. heh. hope you're enjoying it as much as i did taking it..
well well, for HG Exia.. the few complaints that i have are that there are quite a few spots that required painting to look anime accurate.. not a biggie. the GN long and short blades pops out a lot when you're posing, cos they requires a lot of twists and turns depending on how the leg stands. and the GN Sword hinders when exia is trying to hold any beam saber on the right hand.. and finally, the pelvis of exia, actually hinders the movement slightly more den it aids. if you're really interested to know the details.. you can ask me.. =)
as for the praises for this kit.. looks badass when you've painted it. the kit feels very sturdy with the inner frames. many movable parts in the body armor. and you can't get enough of its seven sword system... ^^
i hope to start on a new kit soon.. tho i might not have the time to finish it fast, its still smthing i look forward to when i'm home. not to mention.. my PG room reno, its VERY VERY slowly building up. i have a new bed, wardrobe, TABLE!! and the lightings up... looking to get a display rack from ikea soon.. heh.. and maybe a few more loots to show you guys when i'm free! heh.. thanks for staying here with us at renntako... really appreciate you guys lots! being the last day of the chinese lunar new year... HAPPY NEW YEAR PPLE!!! see ya ard! =)
