About itisagunpla!

I just realised I have not really introduced myself. People called me “Fong” and I started my love of building scaled models back in 1995 with Master Grade 1/100 Zaku 2 and Gundam Mk2.

After 22 years of hiatus, I restarted my gunpla hobby back in 2017 and it wasn’t until May 2020 when I started to share my work on Facebook and blogging my projects.

I have 3 golden rules “No Fuss, Kit Bash, and Pre-shade

No-fuss; I just don’t have the patience and space, that said I am not into scribing, pla-plates, water-slides decals (only when I need to bring in the “A” game!), photo-etching (when it is straight forward) etc.

Kit-Bash; I like to make something uniquely mine. With the “No-Fuss” rule, the kit-bash is usually swapping different weapons or limbs and lots of super-glue!

Pre-shape; I am not a clean and weathered builder but more of a in-between, hence I use pre-shade to help bring out shadows and edges to give the finished kit slightly more depth. I like to featured my kit as “used & tested“!

That said, thank you for visiting and please scroll down or look to your left for my completed projects! and if you do like to support my future works and this blog please donate using the “Tip Jar” if you can.

Bandai 1/144 HG RCX-76-02 Guncannon First Type [Iron Cavalry Squadron] [Iron Patriot Custom]

Bandai 1/144 HG RCX-76-02 Guncannon First Type [Iron Cavalry Squadron] [Iron Patriot Custom]

This RCX-76-02 Guncannon First Type [Iron Cavalry Squadron] [Iron Patriot Custom] is heavily inspired by Marvel Iron Patriot hence the play of name from “Iron Cavalry” to “Iron Patriot” Custom. I have also taken inspiration from the RX-77AQ Guncannon Aqua from Thunderbolt series where the Aqua Guncannon was fitted with missiles pods to the backpack instead of cannons. This is my submission to Gundam Builder Master Championship 2021 Beginner Category held in Indonesia on 8th August 2021. Check them out and support me as well!

Bandai 1/144 HG GMIII Beam Master [Yukki’s Mobile Suit] – Custom GM3 Version

The High Grade RGM-86RBM GM 3 Beam Master is a Bandai 1/144 scale kit released in mid-April 2018. Although it is released in 2018, the kit is based on the HG RGM-86R GM 3 kit which is released 7 years ago in August 2011. The Beam Master kit however uses some newer parts such as the knees, side skirts and a new head unit. It is basically a kit-bash of the HG GM 3 to make it a Yukki’s custom.

Bandai 1/144 HG Jegan Blast Master (Yukki’s Mobile Suit)

In the Gundam Build Divers series, Yukki previously piloted a RGM-86RBM GM3 Beam Master as a long distance support; but as the series progressed, Yukki’s best friend, Riku slowly improved and hence Yukki decided not to be left behind and wanted to fight along Riku hence developed a new Mobile Suit.

BANDAI 1/144 HG WMS-03 MAGANAC

Bandai 1/144 HG WMS-03 Maganac

WMS-03 Maganac despite being mobile suits with specifications close for ground and desert use, they have high versatility and their performance surpassed the OZ-06MS Leo. The Maganac was also developed to be operated in cooperation with the XXXG-01SR Gundam Sandrock. Almost all of the 40 units were individually customized to have different abilities and traits such as enhanced melee combat capabilities and communication functions depending on their pilots’ skills and roles.

Bandai 1/144 HG MS-04 Bugu [Ramba Ral]

Bandai 1/144 HG MS-04 Bugu [Ramba Ral]

“This is no Zaku, Boy!!” and yes that is true to a sense as it does not have much of a Zaku likeness. That is the main reason why I really like this design. It is different and yet not too quirky. My plan is to customise this Bugu such that has that beta version look that inspired a Gouf. Or in a way I was inspired by post-apocalyptic “Mad Max” or “Fist of North Stars” biker gang helmet with shoulder spikes! Hence I will be am calling my kit-bashed Bugu “The BUtcher!” swinging a huge Buster sword.
