1/100 MG Exia Ignition Mode WIP(Updated 15 August 2009)

I received my Exia yesterday! Premium price too! I’ve always wanted a master grade version of Exia ever since I saw the No grade version. I usually don’t buy no grades and I was so tempted to buy Exia until I heard the announcement of the Master grade version. I quickly preordered it and well, the rest is history.

Lets start the work shall we?

Well, I don’t have to show you the unboxing since I already did that here so let’s just skip to the construction part.

Day 1 of construction(10/08/09)

As always, I will start with the head construction first.

The parts for the head. Those yellow vents on the cheeks are seriously THIN! I broke one of them by accident while trying to clean out the nub marks, good thing I had some tamiya cement lying around.

Completed head! 5 foil stickers altogether, 1 for the eyes, 2 on the side of the head(behind the green orbs) and 2 for the head cameras I guess
