Community Spotlight: “Prototype Grimiore Escapes!”

From the builder:


My Instagram name is @kgundamz attached below is my build, titled “prototype grimiore escapes!” The story is that I imagined what the grimiore would look like as a prototype and the diorama is it standing in a clearing in the woods after it had been stolen. I used the original grimiore kit and recolored it’s using Tamiya spray cans and hand brushing techniques. 

Thanks for giving builders a chance to show there work! I look forward to seeing the other submissions.

I purchased my first gunpla kit in December 2016, and instantly feel in love with the hobby and community. I’m mainly interested in customizing kits. Today I’m submitting my first completed custom build. Finished the build around November 2017. HG Jesta “Half-Cannon”. Painted with testor spray paint, Cannon kit bashed out of HG IBO option parts and the arm from Gusion RFC.

Community Spotlight: takoyabuilds “Federation MAX”

Message from the builder:

“Greetings from Australia, I have submitted a custom model I made last year. Used GM/GM as base model, combined various parts from other Gunpla from MGs and HGs.

Inspired by 80s and 90s super robot anime, I aimed to replicate the same aesthetics and style. Obvious tell is the “Obari Pose”. Enjoy!

Kind regards,


Community Spotlight: BroBuilder “Zeon Angel of Death (MS Igloo)”

From the builder:

“The theme of the build: Zeon Angel of Death (MS Igloo)

The base kit is the MG Minelayer.
I did extensive pla plate modifications and embellishments including a scratchbuilt Super Heat Hawk and over 300 individually hand cut and placed rivets. I sculpted custom wings based off photos of African Vultures out of Monster Clay, molded in silicone, and cast using a special dye technique with translucent resin. Painted in acrylic AMMO by MIG, I used the Rinaldi method of hairspray chipping on five consecutive layers to give incredible depth to the weathering and finished the kit with a mix of decals under oil paint. 
Fun fact: I spent more than 16 hours chasing details in the feathers of the wings and reducing weight with a 1/8″ round burr on a dremel. 
All in all, I learned a lot and had a ton of fun working on this build.
