Blog Dead

Not so much dead as moved: robotfarmer.blogspot.com

So long has passed.

I promised you an update that I didn’t deliver on, so I’m sorry about that. School and such got in the way and took a higher priority over modelling and posting. But, I’ve now graduated and will have oodles of free time so here’s the plan. I’m going to make a new wordpress account with a cooler name (hehe) maybe, and the make regular updates once a week…starting a couple weeks from now. I find that if I try to update too much or force myself to do it then I get distracted easily…let’s try to change that.

So things to keep an eye out for in the upcoming weeks:

MG Exia
MG Ez8 (the second gunpla that I never properly shot)
MG Destiny wisp
and I’m also going to start my Perfect Grade!!!!

I won’t tell you what it is though…you’ll have to guess.

Anyways, it feels great to be back and I’ll catch you all later.

Impending Update.


Or….the next day….or the day after that. I finished my Exia!

WISPs Part 1

Sometimes I wonder why I do it. Not the Gunpla thing….but the process in which I build gunpla. Here’s some back story.

Back when I first started building gunpla, I was ordering models as I built them. As in: Buy one, build one, but another, build another. It didn’t take a long time for me to realize that that is THE STUPIDEST way to buy models. It’s like buying models for $10 more than they cost. Soon after, I started buying more than one at a time to reduce the marginal shipping cost.

And that brings me to where I am now. I have 3 models in progress right now. Some further than others but still a lot of work to do on each.

Group Picture!

We’ll go on a photo journey of the the three in terms of most complete to most incomplete.

First is the Exia. This one is mostly complete, but there needs to be detailing on the legs and the arm. Aside from that, I need to redo the shading on the head since I messed it up by handling it by the v-fin, wearing down the shading at the center of the fin. Decals are from SamuelDecal.com. Enjoy!

Next up is my HGUC Jegan. This is the first model I’m using pla-plate on. I intend to do more to it, eliminate seam lines, possible add an LED into the head, and also change the color scheme…maybe something Throne Zwei-ish. Current mods include plating added to the shield, and stupid crap done to the chest. Enjoy!

Last up is the GP02a. This is one is going to have an extensive amount of mod work done on it. Truth be told, the only reason I bought the Jegan is to practice on. But here it is….OOB in every sense of the word.

Looking forward to posting these models completed. I also received my FIRST PERFECT GRADE MODEL!!!

But I want to finish these and my MG destiny before I get going on it. I want to have as much experience as possible before I get going on it.



MG F91 ver. Gold!

I love that picture.

So what we have here is something I’ve procrastinated shooting for months. Months. But here you have it: my MG F91 ver. Gold. This is a 95% OOB kit with the color changed and a couple (emphasis on couple) of seam lines were filled in on the shoulders.

I think these pictures are better than any that I’ve done in the past. I think I love the look of this model. Everything about it is very simple, it’s skinnier than most UC suits but it doesn’t have the anorexic look that we saw in the SEED universe.

I don’t remember much about this build, honestly. One of the problems between building a model months before you post it, but oh well. I had fun posing this one. I wish I had more patience because there would be more than a handful of poses but that’s something to work towards in the future.
