Once again The Mecha Lounge is back and up and running! I cannot tell you how happy I am to have a great place to hang out with like minded people and just share the hobby with!!

So big thanks and hats off to our resident administrator Simon of Gundam UK. He is the mastermind of putting The Mecha Lounge back on the map!  Without his hard work and determination to bring it back, we would be stuck with just The Mecha Lounge Facebook page still.

Where there is nothing wrong with that really.  It's just not easy to look up a technique or a past work that inspired you from long ago, as it is on a forum.  Forums keep the information so accessible to those who are looking for a specific topic or technique to use on future builds.

So with that said get down to The Mecha Lounge forum and get registered today!

Finn funnels and sheild

Finishing up the final touches on the Neo Grade 1/60 Nu Gundam.  The last piece of the puzzle was to get the Finn funnels mounted and the shield mounted as well.  The last thing to do was the final photo shoot with a proper camera and background as well....

Well I am not sure what is going on with the kit now.  But the entire LED system is not working. So I will have to go back in and see what is the major malfunction here.  I am sure its just a battery problem on this guy.  For all the LEDs to go out at one time usually tends to lead to battery failure or a possible wire from the power side or the ground side may have gotten disconnected.  What ever it is I have to fix.

As soon as that is done I will make an attempt to do a better photo shoot of the kit itself.  I still am the  worst photographer in the world. So don't expect much from me!! Any how here are some of the pictures I snapped while I was mounting the funnels and shield.

Almost done with this kit!

Well since I missed my deadline I honestly lost my stream on this kit.  So a few weeks away from it has done me good.  So today I finally got off my butt and started working on the funnels for this guy. Wasn't sure if I was going to try and glue them using two part epoxy or what.  Turned I just decided to pin them and use small amounts of CA glue to hold down certain areas, I'm just happy to see it standing on its own.

So the last few details I will button up soon. I need to magnetize the sheild for its mounting point.  Then just small details left and it's off to the next project, looks like maybe next spring this guy will make its way to IPMS 2017 spring show.
