I'll be back!

School started a couple weeks ago, and don't have much time, with all of the works I never had more time to do a proper review to the Exia, I took a couple photos, though they were a bit dark, and I still need to do a re-photo-shot session for the review...

Yet, last month I ordered HG 1/144 God Gundam, and I have finished it also, I won't be doing any work in progress for it, since I didn't do anything special to him. Though I will be doing a huge review for it :)

I'll be going to a anime and manga event this weekend, and I saw that there will be a store that sells maybe I'll be bringing a couple kits, at least I wish...

I'll be revealing what will be my next projects, and in one of them I would like you to help me.

See you next Post! ;)

New Stuff

I  was expecting this today, and finally they arrived.
I bought them at a store in my country, but since that store is far from where I live, I ordered them from their web site, I ordered on Monday, but it was shipped to my yesterday (Tuesday), and arrived this morning.
I'm really happy, they're the colours I really wanted, and I think I'm going to get a couple more.
Now you'll probably notice there are two dark paints, a clear green and red.

HG 1/144 Exia Repair II WIP part 3

Part 3 of the work in progress, have to say, that I still have a couple things to do, like painting those GN things, but for that I need the Tamiya Clear Green which may arrive tomorrow. 

HG 1/144 Exia Repair II WIP part 2

Welcome to part 2 of the work in progress, if you notice, I put the image a little bigger, I decided it would look better.
In this first picture you can see the waist and legs, the skirt armour is quite simple, just put two stickers and it's done. You can see by the pose, that it's a very posable kit, and has a great balance.

HG 1/144 Exia Repair II WIP part 1

So welcome to the part 1 of the work in progress, in this part, I'll show you the beam sabers, GN Swords and Dagger, Shield and GN Drives.

HG 1/144 Exia Repair II Unboxing

This will be the Unboxing of the Exia Repair II, my first gunpla model, and so far so good, I love Exia and his role in the anime.
This is the box art, as I said in the last post, it's a very cool box, it captures Exia in a pretty cool action pose, and if you get the 0 Gundam you can combine both boxes and recreate the battle scene, big plus for Bandai for making that effort.

New Work In Progress Apresentation

Hello fellow gunpla modellers, I've been this last two weeks on summer vacations so no work for me on my new model, I got the package, two days before going on vacations. It's a HG 1/144 Exia Repair II. I started working on it as soon as I opened the box. I washed the pieces, just in case, so they won't have any factory oil or something.
The box art is really cool, it catches Exia in a very cool action pose, and if you get the HG 1/144 0 Gundam you can join the boxes and recreate the fighting scene of the anime.
This is like a re-release of the HG 1/144 Exia, because you'll get the pieces to make the early version of the Exia, shoulders, arms, leg pieces, GN Sword 1, and a few pieces for holding the GN Sword and GN Dagger on Exia's waist.
I decided going for the Repair II version, I have also bought a set of Gundam Markers, and they have been very helpful, I have painted a couple things, like the GN Sword and Dagger, the Beam Saber ( I'll show you later), the face mask, and head helmet. So tomorrow I'll be posting the first part of the Work in Progress, I can say I have finished like 90 % of the kit, I only have to paint the clear pieces and panel line a few things more.
So see you tomorrow! ;)

Gallery & Review: 1/600 HMS BELFAST

So this is it, the complete model, sorry for taking so long, my camera was without battery and I didn't have the charger with me, but finally, here it is. I took lots of photos, and I decided to make like a montage, since it's a pretty complex model and I'm not a big photoshopper, I made a simple montage. This is the best I could do, it only took me like 10 minutes. In the picture you can see that the cannons are pointing to the air plane, and it's in the middle of the ocean, and with some crazy waves (let's just imagine it xD).

1/600 HMS Belfast WIP Part 7

Welcome to the last part of this work in project, this is the last part, part 7, I glued all the parts, I still need to put some things, as the main cannons, secondary cannons, and the plane. I won't be gluing those, because I find it better just having them not glued, so I can turn the cannons.

1/600 HMS Belfast WIP Part 6

Welcome to part 6, and good news, I'm almost at the end, to complete I just need to complete the detail parts,(cannons, boats...) I can say that 1/3 of those detail work is done, and it's right here, on the commanding tower.

1/600 HMS Belfast WIP Part 5

1/600 HMS Belfast WIP Part 3

Welcome back for part 3 of this WIP, so far so good, you can see that the picture is blurry but that's because the camera is very close to the model, in there, you can see 2 surviving boats, some protections, and 2 "U" shaped pieces that will help support the other top part for the ship.

1/600 HMS Belfast WIP Part 2

So here I am for the part 2, in here I show you the finished air plane.

1/600 HMS Belfast WIP Part 1

Welcome to the Part 1 of my work in project of the 1/600 HMS Belfast, as I said in the post before this kit is from 1973, and you can tell it's old just from the look of the cover.

Saturday, 10 July 2010



My name is António Santos, a.k.a. as Agcsantos (youtube) or Tonythem in some forums, games, and so on.
This will be my hobby blog, where I'll show you some of my works and reviews of all sorts of kits, like Gundam Kits, Aircraft Kits, etc...
I have now started this hobby so I'll take some time do my kits, and I count on you to criticize my works.
I'm from Portugal (so I don't speak English, so pardon me if I make any mistake), I'm a 17 years old teenager, (almost an adult :D or not... xD) I started watching gundam a few years ago, and I love it, one of the best series of anime I have ever saw.
So I'll be doing a lot of works and reviews specially on Gundam Kits. I have ordered my first Gundam kit, it's a 1/144 Exia Repair II, I wanted the 0 Gundam but it is unavailable, and I also ordered a Gundam Market Set (the normal one), all from Hobby Link Japan.
Currently I am in the beginning of my first model, it's a 1/600 HMS Belfast military ship, this model is my father's and it was made in 1973 by Airfix (yes the model is pretty old, but it is really good, and well detailed). I'll be posting this week and so on, pictures of my work in progress, so stay tuned for more :)
