1/100 MG Gundam Astray Blue Frame WIP(updated 27/12/09)

For this work in progress, I shall do it differently by starting with the weapons first instead of the usual head. So let’s starto~

Day 1 of Construction(24/12/09)

Drossel is surprised by how many trees of parts are used for the tactical arms

Ooo~ new blue polycaps spotted!

Hmm Drossel looks ready to begin with the construction

Here are the parts for the bladed part of the tactical arms

Drossel:"And this goes here.."

Drossel:"..and this one here..."

Drossel:"Weee~ One side completed~"

Here's the part for the "fins" I have no idea what they're called xD

Drossel:"I guess the thruster fits here.."

Drossel:"And this blue piece should fit here.."

Drossel:"Voila! Finito~"

The large amount of parts for the main body of the tactical arms. Well it's not THAT many I guess πŸ˜›

Drossel:"These are the connector arms for the blades to connect to the main body of the tactical arms"

Drossel:"And here are all the parts nearing completion :D"


Drossel:"Huge sword is huge!"

Drossel trying out the tactical arms

The tactical arms in its gattling mode

Drossel:"I see you~ hehe"

Man that took nearly an hour. I haven’t even panel lined it and stuff LOL. Stay tuned for more work in progress pictures!

Day 2 of construction(26/12/09)

Day 2 will be construction of the legs! Yeehaw~

Drossel:"These must be the parts for the foot, they're in such a mess!"

Drossel opens up her book and mutters some magical incantation..

*TWING* The parts are arranged nicely by magic!

Drossel:"I'm sure there's some spell here to construct the foot automatically.."

Drossel:"Ahah! So that was the spell.."

Drossel:"There you go, the foot's done~"

Drossel:"OI! Can you both take your fighting somewhere else?! I'm trying to build something here!" Sanada:"Pfft..fine.."

Drossel:"Now let's continue...." *stomach grumbles*

Drossel:"Erm..I think I might need to take a rest and grab something to eat first."

*Hands over a pack of peanuts* Drossel:"Oo..for me? Why thank you very much~"

Drossel:"Now that my energy is restored, let's continue!"

Drossel:"Hmm..these must be the pieces for the leg's inner skeleton, there's so many of them!"

Drossel mutters some more magical incantations..

Drossel:"Oooo, looks like I didn't mess up the incantation!" Drossel sudden realises Koizumi was there out of nowhere.

Drossel:"Err..Koizumi, wacha doing here?"

Koizumi:"No reason ^.^"

Drossel:"Well..since you're here, why not help me out abit with the construction of the legs." Koizumi:"Hmm..Lemme just help you hold onto the legs"

Koizumi:"Hey wait...Drossel I think you forgot to assemble part E36"

Koizumi:"And this will fit in here...."

Koizumi:"Phew, see it looks more complete now :D" Drossel:"Hmm..you're right!"

Drossel:"Now fetch me the armor parts for the leg!" Koizumi:"Yes, Ojou-sama!"

Koizumi:"Voila! Legs completed!"

Drossel:"But how come this leg's not panel lined like the other one?" Koizumi:"Whoops! I guess I forgot to add the lining for this leg"

Koizumi:"Nothing my trusty pencil can't fix though!" Drossel:"Do you have an answer for everything??"

A few hours later..

Koizumi:"Ojou-sama!! I'm done with the panel lining!"

Drossel:"Hmm..that was faster than I ex..pect..ed.....

Drossel:"Ugh, my assistant is an idiot.."

Koizumi:"Look at how fashionable they are on my Ojou-sama!"

Koizumi:"Impressive articulation!" Drossel:"Wow"

LOL 33 pics just for the legs @_@ I guess I overdid it? Hahahaha, hope you guys enjoyed it. See you guys next time for the next construction!

Day 3 of construction(27/12/09)

Oh man, I was reallly lazy today. Hot sunday! All I did today was build the waist @_@

Date:"Hey Sanada, people have been complaining we don't help much around here.."

Sanada:"That's blasphemy! We're the most helpful one! We make the backgrounds lively with our fighting!"

Date:"Well, to prove ourselves helpful to them, I guess we should build this thingy right here"

Date brings the E frame with parts on it to Sanada

Sanada:"I shall cut those pieces out of the frames!"

Sanada:"I've done my part.."

Date:"My turn to clean the nub marks!"

Date:"Job done.."

Date:"Looks like we did a great job!" Sanada:"I agree"

Drossel:"Huh? When did the waist unit get done?!"

Date:"We took nearly the whole afternoon doing this!" Sanada:"Aren't you proud of us?" Drossel:"Whole afternoon and you only got THIS done?!"

LOL I was reaaaallly lazy!! T.T”

    cool pics, Drossel is good at gunpla! awesome you have the tamiya basic tool set too πŸ˜›

    • eighteleven says:

      Hahah I just bought it a few days ago, and then coincidentally after I bought it, I saw your post on what tools you were using and saw the same toolset. LOL I was like woahh~

  3. moemoekyun says:

    I just watched all astray OVA and I know that weapon is very awesome ^_^

    Now you too can have a robotic pet bird with a gattling gun for its beak. πŸ˜€

    Cool, you have so many assistants helping you out. And why is Date and Sanda not helping out?… =_=
    If I got that problem, its simple: get Yoko to bring her blue tack tentacle pet of hers to do some “negotiations” to the miscreants…. ^^

    Talking about Yoko, where’s yours? O_o;

    • eighteleven says:

      I didn’t wanna bring her into the scene too early since I just introduced Koizumi as Drossel’s assitant, if too many characters introduced in one go, then nothing else to show next time xD

      and why Date and Sanada isn’t helping out is cause they’re just there when I was building blue frame..and then realised might as well make them do something…soo fighting in the background it is LOL

      • bd77 says:


        p.s. Yoko’s hip joints tends to get loose after doing certain poses. And caution about her hairs (since you have two types), it makes her top heavy, but done correctly it also can be used a counter-balance (that’s normally what I did) for her.

        Yoko: Are you complaining about my hair or my weight?…
        Me: NONE~! Just some minor design issues~! O_O;;;

  6. eighteleven says:

    I tried putting her just standing and she wouldn’t stand man o.o her hair is freaking heavy! And she seems kinda loose T.T”

    Me: I’m complaining about your weight! Wacha gonna do about it? Sh..

    *Gets shot by Yoko’s sniper rifle*

    • bd77 says:

      To quote from Zengar: “You need more training~!” (after defeats an enemy)

      You could use my pictures (from the Blade Girl shots) as reference for you pose. πŸ˜€

      Her untied hair is an issue at times… Uhh… Could you lower down your Zankantou please, Yoko… Its starting make skin bleed…

  7. eighteleven says:

    bd77: Ooh alright! Will check it out once you’ve posted, and if I don’t(or somehow forget), you can smack me by commenting on my blog to remind me that you’ve posted a new post LOL xD

  8. chubbybots says:

    Haha my friend it was a joy reading through your WIPs πŸ˜€ Haha love the usage of your new friends to help you build!!

    Maybe you can have yukimura help you do a mass cutting of the parts from the trees and the takeda to help you slice with precision the nub marks πŸ˜€

    • eighteleven says:

      Who’s takeda? O.o do you mean Date? LOL I think both Sanada and Date are too busy dueling to help..maybe someone can convince them.. xD

      Anyway, I guess adding figurines to my W.I.P makes it more entertaining, since my W.I.Ps were usually just bland simple constructions. Hope people will like my new WIPs now =D

      Having new and friendly assistants is really helpful ^^

  9. Marzz says:

    Instant assembling spell! I want too! Looking good so far!

  10. heathorn says:

    Very entertaining WIP! Date and Yukimura is so noisy lol
    War period heroes cannot understand gunpla ^_^

  12. rockleelotus says:

  13. chubbybots says:

    Maybe they are good for cutting pla plates!! Haha πŸ˜€

  14. chubbybots says:

    haha sounds like a business opportunity ^^ But is the gunpla community big over there πŸ˜€ Maybe next time I can ship pla plates to you guys + top coat!!! (Syful will be very happy!!) Then you distribute haha ^^

  15. Marzz says:

    Auto cutting + auto nub removal. What more could you ask for?? Lol

  16. h4mster says:

    This kind of WIP is so fun to watch!

  17. divinelight says:

    So, this is the 1st until 3rd part.
    It’s so interesting, far more than a normal WIP. ^^

  18. AstrayBlueFrame says:
