HGUC ORX-005 Gaplant TR-5 [Hrairoo] Review (Part 3)



Even shorter update today with Gaplant’s legs. They’re simplistic build with not many parts, but the end result is huge. It definitely add massive image to Gaplant that the torso lacks. The only thing (at least for standard Gaplant) left is building the arms. But my panel liner dried out and I gotta wait until I can buy a new one.

HGUC ORX-005 Gaplant TR-5 [Hrairoo] Review (Part 2)


I’ve been meaning to post this last night but then I got too sleepy. Again, like Advanced Hazel, only small update this time. To be exact, only waist section and display base. But it turned out that the waist isn’t as simple as Advanced Hazel was.

HGUC RX-121-2A Gundam TR-1 [Advanced Hazel] Review (Part 2)


It took quite some time to build the torso and even more for the backpack. They aren’t that complicated but there are many spots demanding for touch-ups. Most of the time I spend are painting a spot, waiting for the paint to dry, scratch the spillover, painting another layer (yellow on Titans blue is a pain), waiting for the paint to dry, and so on.

HGUC RX-121-2A Gundam TR-1 [Advanced Hazel] Review (Part 1)


Instead of finishing HGUC Hrairoo all the way and then move on to another one, I decided to put it aside for a while and trying my hands on HGUC Advanced Hazel which I bought together with Hrairoo. This way, I will be less likely to get bored. Gotta need some change of paces I think. Anyway, about this particular gunpla, I was hesitant to get it since I already owned HGUC Hazel Custom for years. And this Advanced Hazel is actually the same kit with added parts and different paint scheme. But then I remember that I made some amateurish mistakes on Hazel Custom, and now I have the chance to fix that since I have better tools. And another reason is to complement HGUC Hrairoo like I said before. So, let’s start with runner preview.

A Sudden Revival

That mess of parts above is HGUC Hazel Custom. I bought it years ago on its initial release. And then I lost some parts so I just decommission it from the shelf and took them apart, hoping that I can use those parts for kitbash someday. But then, just today, I salvaged them and planning to clean them up and detailing them up. Why sudden interest? The answer will come in few days.
