1/60 Scale Gundam F91












Here’s a re-blogged of Gundam F91 Mega Scale after I have taken newer pics of it. It’s a semi-toy as big as the DX scale version (around 12 inches). This collectible comes with a skeleton and self assemble armor frames like model kit (once upon a time before Perfect Grade). The one which I had assembled and put on display was caught with the disease of yellowing :(. Luckily, Jason sold me his at friendship price and so I have another piece that is MISB, still in shrink-wrap too! Hopefully, it is not rotting from inside out. Hee! Hee!

There was an occasion I find the badly yellowed Gundam F91 such an eyesore that I decided to give it a complete makeover. Hence, I bought a flat white spray white to work on. My first step was to remove the yellowing parts. Those parts that could not be removed, I had pasted scotch tape over the area, which was manned to leave untouched. I then sprayed the paint over them and carefully fixed the parts back.

At first, I thought I could chop chop finish the task. However, it required more patience then what I expected. The fact that I had to send my little Wenz for enrichment class in the evening, I had a rush through the process. There had been some flaws but personally I'm very please with the final product and it's definitely better looking now.

Wow...that is a very classic kit!! You have plans to ink the panel lines a bit? I think will really enhance the look :D

Haha enrichment classes ^^ I got to learn how to balance hobby and family time in the future when I have my kid :D

I didn't pay much attention to lining. Usually will use pencil to draw lines so that it's easy to rectify. Hee! Hee!

u r such a good "father" for ur "brand new F-91 son" LOL... u did a good job pal, i guess this is a rare "easy kit", cuz it has same scale than PG kit, but notoriously less detail & articulation points... in colour scheme, i still prefer the Harrison Madin version (deep blue & white)... u know, when u adopt a colleague’s toy, it’s like giv it a new home, so it has an special value... that was the case with my Medabots’ Metabee, so i know what it feels...

It not easy repainting it and the result is worth it. Well done bro!

>> chrismandesign
less detail & articulation compared to PG. But it's much cheaper than PG for something to display. I really salute you for the passion and pursue to toy collection.

>> LEon
Well, it's worth a try and it's really much nicer to the eyes now. Hee! Hee!

1/60 F91 O__o Antique kit!

I just rewatch F91 anime, It still looks awesome with its duplication technique. In some way better than OO

I have watched F91 a couple of times. The mech design is a appealing and the plot is nice. The ending story touched my heart too

Agree with chubbybots, if you add in panel lines, it enhances the look of the figure.
