For those times when I don't feel like gaming, I like to build the occasional model kit every now and then. From pedestrian Gunpla to challenging non-snap together kits, as long as it was tied in to a series/character I liked, it's a sure buy and build. I may not be the best in this hobby, but I've studied enough basic tricks to make the finished models presentable.
Girls Und Panzer PLATZ 1/35 Scale Panzerkampfwagen IV Ausf.D (IV号戦車D型)
My first ever tank model. This was basically the test subject for the cues I took from a Dengeki Hobby insert for learning non-Gunpla model building techniques. It took several recoats before everything looked good. The base turret was later replaced with the Nendoroid-use version from the Miho Nishizumi figure, and I put Lynette in command by force.

The thing about the BB Senshi SD model kits is that despite the ridiculously easy assembly process, they are a royal pain to paint. Several bits of masking tape and a voluminous amount of acrylic thinner were sacrificed to get the little darling to this state. Though not readily visible from this picture, several water decals intended for the Master Grade Impulse Gundam were also used for detailing.
HGUC AMX-004-2 エルピー・プル専用 キュベレイMk-II
In my neck of the woods, shades of purple and pink model paint are nearly impossible to come by, so I had to use what was there (Blue Violet and Pearl Red) . Though it's not THE exact color of Elpeo's Qubeley Mk-II, this combination works for me.
