Yea I know. It's been a very long time. Well many things happened - my family got expanded and we moved to house and etc. Anyhow here's my latest take on the so called "Monaka Gunpla Build" technique. It's popularized by the Model Graphix article on the same subject.

Itís the popular build method where the old Gunpla kits are modified to look more modern or close to the illustration. Reason why it's called Monaca is that the old Gunpla kits have the seam line right in the middle all the way from top to bottom, just like the Japanese snack, Monaka. (see the wiki link below for the photo)

They put out the compilation of articles in the mook as you can see in the below link. Check with Kinokuniya bookshop if you are in Sydney as they sometimes carries this and other related mooks.

Anyhow this kit is the old 1/144 MS-06Z Gunpla which a lot of gunpla modelers patiently waiting for the Bandai to release the retooled revision.

Ok. firstly here's the old kit in its full glory.The one with the cigarette pack is the OOB pic from darlong.net. And then my take on this old Gunpla kit. :)



And here's after the Monaca Gunpla building process. :p

Sure there are many areas that can be improved upon but I'm satisfied with this build. I do have the MS-06Z-2 aka MSN-01 kit unopened so who know what I will add/improve when I get around to build it as the Monaca Gunpla buid. :)
