A while back, someone asked me if I built Gunpla.
Well, for something different, here my first Gunpla/Gundam build in well over 20 years
The Bandai High Grade 'Gundam Bael' in 1/144 scale


A quick look at the parts:

Started out with sub-assembly work.
The torso.
The little black areas would normally be stickers, I used a micro-Sharpie


The head.
The blue areas on the 'horns' were supposed to be stickers, but I opted instead to use Gundam markers
The eyes, by contrast, are the stickers from the kit


The arms


The upper body assembled


The rather massive-looking feet


Assembled legs


The hips and legs assembled


The sword pod for his waist, allowing for the sabers to be stored.


The wing-flight pod for his back

Separated the major assemblies and went in with a Gundam panel marker to bring out the many lines on the model.
I was very pleased with the overall effect.

Excellent work indeed,
I love how this is looking.

I've recently got into building Gunpla, here's a few pics of my slightly battered 1/44 HG 'GunCannon'..
