    HG Gundam AGE-1 Spallow (Hotsuma Custom)

      So, uh, this isn’t my kit, nor my custom idea. The same client who’s commissioned my work on the┬áVirtual-On Temjin kits in the past requested this one as a quick repaint/mod build. The AGE-1 Spallow always had a very ninja/shinobi motif going for it, what with the emphasis on covert speed and its armor design. The client’s request to…

    HGCE Force Impulse Gundam

    I knew it would pay to wait on a HGCE Impulse. I very nearly bought the old HG model from Destiny‘s release after I convinced myself it wasn’t so bad (this took nearly 3 days of staring at the old kit until it started looking blurry and indistinct) but Bandai made all my worries moot by just throwing a new…
