And now....for something completely different....
Posted by fermis on Sunday, May 15, 2016 11:09 AM

...for me anyway! Needed a change of pace, and something to try out some new techniques on.

 

Not really sure if this is the best place for this...it'll kinda fit in figures and/or dioramas too.

Anyway...

Spent about an hour in the garage, making the base for this.

I got to the point of having the upper torso built, then just kicked back and watched it go on from there!

Hey Fermis! I am working on my first gundam also. I am putting mine together while on lunch break at work, so no pics. These are nice little kits and you can do a lot with them, as you have already found out. Looking forward to your dio, it already has a good start to it.

So simple it builds and photographs itself? LOL

Nice work and as much as I love your aircraft this is a really cool diversion. I picked up a few Gundam kits after buying the DVD of 'Pacific Rim' but still haven't started on them.

You lured me in with the Jesta, but that was hilarious!

DAMN IT, FERMIS! I could've SAVED that German fighter for you! What was it - a Stuka? I sincerely hope that you didn't really trash it. Um at first when I clicked on this thread I thought that it was something that I posted last night while "sleep posting". It went to almost the bottom of the page, and it kept scrolling as it always does now, so I couldn't see who posted this thread until it stopped (finally), and I saw the build. Very cute! Um, the paint brush in the end of the barrel is a nice touch too. I did this before for the same reason since it looked the part I figured "What the Hell?" - right?! Any way this brought a smile to my face, and yes - I did laugh at the part where he picked up the plane and tore it apart until I saw the fire and the trash can.

ROTFL... That's awesome!!!

Though before trashing the Bf-109 you should have painted the Gundam in Captain America's colours... Wink

Tis the season...the turtles come up from the lake to lay their eggs in my yard. I'll find anywhere from 20 to 30 baby turtles per year. I'll gather em up and take em down to the lake to give em a fighting chance at survival....it's a long journey for something that's the size of a nickel!

Oh wow! Sometimes we get baby snapping turtles about the size of a half-dollar roaming around the grass beside the creek at work. I generally just leave them be since I'm not sure where they're heading (plus I don't want one latching onto my finger!)

Mostly, all I find are painters...I see a lot of the mommas laying their eggs. We also get a few great, big snappers laying their eggs in the yard...but I usually find those nests dug up by...Hmm...coons(???) Have only found maybe a handfull of baby snappers in the 13 years we've been here.
