She isn't glued at all, just pinned. And where there's joints, the joints are assembled.

There's a couple of places with glue.. but that's only parts that stay the same colour without masking. So yeah..

Just waiting on my primer from R10 now. I finished the other veil and arm last night. She's all cleaned and ready to go.

I don't think I'm going to be able to make it -__- (work, other crap getting in the way ) I won't stop, though... I wanna see this thing done even if it takes all year

Hmm, sorry to hear that... But you still have 20 days~ Is there any chance of getting it done? Although, I can understand that you wanting to make it perfect~

As for me, I did ended up start working on the Last JuNon. Got pretty sick and tire of rescribing virtually all the lines and corners... But mananged to get all the parts cleaned up except the arms and shoulders.

shiezzel, any updates on your part?

Hi yp,

No updates here except I'll be trying to complete Volks Prominence instead of the SR-1>_<.

I can relate to what you're going through with the Last Junchoon. Even for an original kit, the quality is poor. I guess it is understandable due to the age of this kit. Good luck on that!

I did a little bit of test painting on the Prominence today. I wanted to see how the orange I mixed will look on the Prominence. Check out the difference in the orange on the left leg. What a huge difference the lighting makes!

The first picture of the leg looks like pink :? . The second looks closer to the actual part. I'm still thinking if I should tone it down a bit and go with another shade of orange...

EDIT: I ended up stripping the leg and hope to mix a new orange that looks similar to this http://www.geocities.jp/solidmodel2/v_s ... lation.htm

Just finished cleaning up the parts.

I have pinned the KOG AT kit from Kaiyodo and placed it next to the Last Junchoon. Kind of wanted to compare the sizes~

Yeah, it is. I snatched one of the blades from WSC kits.

Hi AKuma, I am not sure if I will work on it next.. I am thinking about it^^
At a glance, the kit somewhat looked smaller compared to others, and I just pinned it up to see how small it was. But as you can see, it stands up well with others.

Hi guys,

Tachyon has been very helpful and willing to set up a gallery for our use, so thank you very much, Tachyon! :D .

For those who are interested in joining and have your pictures posted in the gallery, Tachyon will be happy to accept pictures and informations and post them online.

With that being said, anyone up for a bit of fun in naming this gathering event or a title for the gallery?

These are what I thought of and the reasoning behind each choices(sorry if they sound stupid :P ).

Gathering name:

"MORTAR HEADD GATHERING"- A no brainer :P

"GATHERING of the FLAGS"- I thought of this because of the various types of MH we will be seeing that are the flagship MH of various kingdoms.

"MH Invasion"- Hopefully an army of MHs will show up when the time comes :D .

Gallery name:

"Mortar Headd Factory"- A place where MHs are made.

"Five Star Workshop"- Stole this name from a HK recasting house :oops:. Then again, they are stealing profits from the workshops in Japan :roll: .
