My First Model Kit Built. Or Gunpla As It's Called.

in gunpla •  20 days ago

I had wanted to build some sort of model kit for a long time, since I was little. I started out from the anime Gundam, wondering if they had model kits of the suits, and to my luck they did. I had researched how to build them and tips on making them and such, and was finally able to get and build one. Here are a few pictures of my first Gunpla kit build, the HGUC 1/144 Leo from the Gundam Wing series.

These are the "nubs" as they're called. I always try to get a pic of them before I discard them. Which depending on how you build your kits, you'll have a lot, or very few.

And these are a few of the poses I tried to set up with my figure. Trying to get life like poses is key to making your kit look alive and realistic.

Welcome to Steemit my first post I also had issues with photos upside down I think I ended up rotating them on my phone camera app to get them to show right way up


I'll let him know; his laptop is being wonky. In touch with HP to get it sorted


Hey party people!!!
Was about to say something about the pics but you beat me to it @tattoodjay 😁

Welcome to Steemit @stealthunicorn! Great job on recruitment Wes 🤗. Hope to see you both around. Youre actually inspiring me to make a Steemit comeback ;)


Thank you for the welcome! Thought I'd try my hand at it and see what I could do. So far it's fun and an amazing learning experience. Always love to be an inspiration to keep someone doing something they love.


Come on back! We are just trying to get his laptop to work..stuck in infinite update loop...

And for anyone who sees that the pictures are upside down I apologize, still trying to get the hang of everything lol
