It’s winter again and as you can see from the totally scientific chart below, it means some downtime in my gunpla activity.
As a result, it is definitely impossible for me to finish the remaining Zeon remnant kits by this year. So far, of the 10 kits from this list, I have finished 7 of them. Here they are lined up nicely on my shelf. You can view them individually in the gallery page.
The remaining 3 are the Zaku Cannon, Galluss K and Efreet Schneid. If you’re wondering what happened to them, read on:
For the Zaku Cannon, I decided to build one that’s close to the original design instead of building a Zaku Half Cannon. I’ve settled on most parts on the top half of the body, it’s the legs that got me stuck. Completion status: ~50%
As for the Galluss K, it’s a kitbash between the HGUC Schzrum Galluss and the Galluss J. It’s not so straight forward as I would’ve liked and I still haven’t decided on a lot of things, for example the head & backpack design. Completion status: ~40%
I initially thought the Efreet Schneid would be the most problematic, but so far it hasn’t been the case. I’m using the Gouf R35 kit as the base and attaching Efreet Nacht resin parts on it. Right now I’m having problems attaching the lower legs (resin) to the knees. Maybe I’ll just use Gouf Custom legs instead. Completion status: ~60%.
And now I’d like to announce a last-minute addition to the Zeon Remnants Project: the Desert Zaku.
Using the HGUC Zaku II F2 kit as base, I added parts from the MSV Zaku Desert Type kit. The Zaku Desert Type and Desert Zaku are not the same thing, so this one will be a mashup of both designs. Completion status: ~70%.
It may seem that I have started all these projects simultaneously, but actually as I was building the Zaku Cannon, I got stuck on some parts and started with the Galluss K. Then when I encountered a problem with that, I started with the Efreet Schneid. And when that came to a halt, I started with the Desert Zaku. And so that’s how I ended up with four ongoing projects right now. I’m not sure when I can finish them all but it’s definitely not this year. With that I wish you all Happy Holidays.
