kochu gundamProfile : SD Sangokuden Kochu Gundam

Where I bought it : Hobby Art Gallery at Sunshine Plaza

Phase   : 1 – Sanding with 400, 600 to 1000 grit, cementing seams, sharpening edges and removing mold lines.

Tools used : Tamiya Cement, Sand paper various grit, hobby rotor, hobby knife, chisel, plus mask (especially for those with sensitive noses! not good to breath in so much plastic dust…)

Here are some of my work in progress pics
