So my other hobby besides wow ofcourse is building models - mostly Gundam but this time I did a Zoid! I wanted to make a wow mount so went with one of my fav dino's Spawn of Horridon. The seat is abit too arts n craft than I intended but I liked the overall zoid. The base kit is the Red Horn Zoid 1/75 scale and the seat I handmade with plaplate and putty (with felt and hobbyfill for the cushion). The base is perplex and card. I was going to sketch Horridon myself but found this one on google (not sure of the artist but credit to them) and just photoshop adjusted it as time was a factor...this may have been finished 2am the night before competition :lol: Hope you guys like him :D

Hi all thought i'd post my model for this years GBWC Australia - Hi Res Wing Zero [frozen teardrop] ver.

My colour scheme is based on the light novel version of the wing zero (if you watched Gundam Wing as a kid you might recognise it). There's only one official picture of it so was abit of a challenge but im super happy with it. Can't wait for the shenanigans in Sydney!

Thanks dude :) Both shades are three layers of paint - jet black, purple or lilac and then clear purple. the lilac is the darker shade believe it or not! It looks super nice there under the bright photography lights.

Hi all - I did this Sakura Wars x Maschinen Krieger crossover for an online contest on the Paint on Plastic facebook group. Most people do these models with a grimey weathered look so I went the total opposite haha!! Most people on the page got a kick out of it :) If you're familiar with the anime the mechs called "Kobu" are steam/psychic powered so I added the extra rivets and steam bells to the top. It was a very challenging model in terms of just putting it together but I'm happy with the result.

Danboard Mini "Homura Akemi" custom

I did this little cardboard robot (that's what Danboard san is apparently!) as a fun quick custom. the kit itself is very plain so I went abit creative with it to make my magical girl 'custom' but she was very fun and cute to do!
