I thought it’d be a good idea to show you guys one of the little hobbies that I do on my spare time, instead of uh, creating an entirely new blog for it. I’ve posted pictures of the other gundams I’ve built in the past, but never went into greater detail with them. And there’s no such thing as “gundam barbies” by the way–that’s just how I see them especially when they tend to be cute and pink. What I’m about to show you, pretty much falls into that category (its got flowers shooting out of itself for god’s sake!).
I had a day off on New Year’s Day, so I decided to use that time to finally build Farsia together, which was collecting dust in my closet. This is the box that It came with and I’m so glad I have it because it’s became one of my all-time favorite mobile suits. It’s elegant, beautiful and appears to be alien-technology!
These are all the pieces and sets that were in the box. Not too intimidating compared to to model kits that have a higher grade. Also, I kind of love how my pink & black pliers match the colors of the pieces.
Working on the chest piece. It looks good already like that. I believe, if I could glue it on the end of a pink stick then it’d make for a good Sailor Moon scepter.
Helppppp, I need legs! It may look simple but there are a lot of small parts that make up the upper portion of the suit. It took me over an hour to do this part.
This isn’t even my final form yet.
It took me close to four hours to complete everything. I even tried to drybrush the armor so it would appear more “dirty”, but it turned out ok overall. I just need to brush up on my painting skills! For more photos, check out my Flickr!
