Full Armor ZZ Gundam WIP: Limbs and backpack

Been doing a lot of gaming and watching anime these past few days that I’ve forgotten altogether to post a WIP when I finished the arms and backpack.

I’m really liking the overall design of this gundam, no inner frames at all though. Just armors over another armor.

The only part in this WIP that has the Full Armor parts equipped, don’t expect the arms to be any more bulkier than this. Lol

This backpack pretty much reminds me of the G-Defenser.. If they’ve added a bit more details and its own cockpit it could be a unit itself.

Spent a total of 11 hours building what you see above. Weapons and extra armor still aren’t built, then there’s also the painting and topcoat. xD

Full Armor ZZ Gundam WIP: Head and Torso

Spent another 2 hrs on this guy and got the head and skirt built.

This be an old kit so the torso doesn’t have any inner frames but it’s engineered nicely though. You just have to built the armor over another armor xD

Slapped the core block inside instead of the core fighter. Yeah the core block looks dull, I’m not complaining though.. It won’t be seen once the gunpla is built.

Err.. That’s pretty much how ZZ’s skirt would look like, for anyone who owns an actions base you would notice that the skirt’s connector is design similarly to one.

Overall I’m not regretting buying this first over the Zeta Gundam 2.0, though I’m painting this one in another color.. Thinking of going either something similar to a FAZZ or a Nu.

Of conventions, upgrades and gunpla

Went to a cosplay convention with a couple of friends a week back, the event isn’t as big as the other cons I’ve been to but it’s still decent. Spotted quite a number of good cosplays.

Only complaint I have is that almost every booth sells bootlegs (nendoroid bootlegs are a common site) xD

Was still early.. And there were few people

Picture shows about 70% of the con area, no real complaint since there’s no entrance fee. One cosplay I wouldn’t forget is that one generic bunny girl that’s in a sexy violet dress, damn she really knows how to make different facial expressions which are oh so smexy.. xD

Next up is the newly bought XFX Radeon HD 5770 and a Western Digital Elements 1.5 TB..

My my.. It’s been a while since I really could turn every graphical options on (AA and AF anyone?). Last time I could do this was with coincidentally also an ATI video card (Radeon 9500).

By the time of this writing I’ve already finished Modern Warfare 2, damn am I impressed. Screenshot doesn’t look much but in game with the rain and amber moving all over the screen, this scene looks amazing.

Bought a large capacity hard drive for storing uh.. Stuff I get from the internet. I find it tedious to burn/store the files on a DVD-R, plus it’s easier to get files from my buddies. Already got 350Gb worth of anime/TV shows from a couple of friends.

And finally a quick WIP of the Full Armor ZZ.. What you’re seeing is about 60% of the ZZ Gundam’s torso, yes I still have to build the rest and attach the Full Armor but it’s already making the RX-178 small. xD

Not sure when the next WIP would be, I currently have tons of shows to watch and games to play/re-play.
