[WIP] MG + Resin Crossbone x2

Surprise surprise I'm still alive!  Can you believe it has been a whole year since I have posted something here?

*EDIT*  I was going to have the photoshoot done for the completed kit but I'm taking care of my cousin for a bit on the account of his breaking the leg via dirt bike accident.  Sorry, everyone, completed photos will have to wait! Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!

You may recall my review of the MG Crossbone X1 Full Cloth a whopping 4 years ago.  It was there I commented on how fragile the kit was--but I still wouldn't mind buying another to have the X2 variant . . . well guess what?  It happened.

It's not the P-Bandai X2 though . . . I actually acquired a second MG X1 from a friend for super cheap.  Fast-forward to the present year I come across a RESIN CONVERSION and just went for it!

My Goals were simple:
-finish a kit this year
-make this crossbone different from my previous crossbone gundam
-learn something new

What I ended up doing:
-partially finish a kit
-made it different enough
-played with fire

I actually didn't care much for the 'short' proportions of the Crossbone . . . it's bad enough it's based on the MG F91 frame--one of the shortest gundams.  You can see above the artwork is about 8 heads proportions and both the MG and the new HG 1/144 are about 8.5 heads proportions.

let's see what I ended up with after the jump . . . .

Happy Holidays! The year-end post; things to look forward to

     Happy Holidays, everyone!  I unfortunately have not had a productive year at all in terms of this hobby, but I sure hope you have.  What happened this year?  Well, I certainly started way more projects than I could finish . . . most I haven't documented at all.

Notable stuff after the jump:
