WIP: 1/100 NG [BANDAI] Cherudim Gundam 8

WIP: 1/100 NG [BANDAI] Cherudim Gundam
I start Scratch building the Rifles and here are the photos so far. I made some mistakes on some edges so i decided to make 2 rifles than using the original one. I hope someone could sell his/her Cherudim's GN rifle so i can minimize my work.

First I used my ruler to measure it then make the middle part of the weapon.

And Tada! My mistake on this one is the thickness of the middle part (Sandwich-ing).
I also use Balloon sticks and insert it on the pla-plate peg like in the original one.

Here's the next part:

Checking the Size:
(The red arrows showing my mistakes, I didn't noticed this part)

I made these .3mm Pattern for adding panel lines to the lower part.

Then Gluing the mini Magnets inside the lower part so i can attach it to the knee.

So here's the result!

Next is the Left Part.

And here it is. All i need to do is putty it up to hide those seamlines.

So, i will this pause for now so i can work on the knee and arms again. 

I reconstruct the knee again. I used 1.5 mm for the base and 1 mm for the 2nd layer (Upper part) and .5mm for the (lower part)

Here's the previous scratch built one.

And here's the new knee and better than the previous one because you can paint it seperately than the old one and also removable because of the black part inside of the knee part.

and that's all for now...I'm still fixing the arms because of the trimming failure T_T


  1. How do you manage to get all those styrene sheets cut out perfectly? The reason I never dab into this this stuff is that I can't cut out plates to the drawings I use, nor can I make multiple pieces the same shape. Come to think of it, I can't even measure properly... T_T So jelly of this skill.

  2. I just cut first the original shape using .5mm then add a little cement into the back portion then place it on the sheet then cut it with your hobby knife slightly and remove the glued original part then you got the same exact size :D
