(Personally I blame ZeroEdge for my urge to modify stuff
Anyway, I've decided to take the dive into modifications for Shinki - yes, my ultimate goal is to start making my original designs, but that is a way off IMO. I'm decent at building models, I've had years of experience with that, but I've never gotten paint to be as even as I see others get it to be. Then again, I'm using small model paintbrushes.
Charlotte Hyperion: My shot at learning/mimicking ZeroEdge's method of using Gunpla for Shinki parts, using the HG Hyperion Gundam in this case, possibly the HG Serpent's boosters as well. Gave up on the boosters for the time being due to lacking a proper peg-type piece for them. Either way, the intended form is complete.
Natsume Recolor: I like Juvsiy's design, just not the colors and the weird plant weapons. I know I'm going to paint the hair red, possibly giving her pink tips. The body I'm pondering on. I don't have her yet, but given everything, I will get her. And she has a name - Natsume~
Cradle: I got my hands on some DAS modeling material, the stuff I'm using for Charlotte Hyperion and probably for Reborns, and I got enough of it to undertake such a project.
Reborns Charlotte: Wanting to use the HG Reborns Gundam as an armor set for Charlotte - my Arnval - and essentially what the Hyperion wound up being practice for. Debating how to work the Twin Drives, if they go on the arms or somewhere else.
Lightbox: Need one for taking pictures, and just using my old Gunpla boxes as is isn't going to work.
Original Shinki: The big one, and one I'm pretty much hellbent on doing. I will make this happen, come hell or high water. First I need to get all the supplies practice with resin and removing/inserting rivets, which Juvsiy may (probably) volunteer for. If I can find other kinds of plastic or methods, I'll give that a shot.
Toolkit: Screwdrivers, various files, model glue, Tamiya and Model Master paints, various paintbrushes, paint primer and topcoats, clippers, model knife (don't know how to use), crappy cellphone camera.
