HG Zeta Gundam Revive 1/144 WIP #1

Well, well, well, i'm working on High Grades a lot more these days probably due to time restraints and damn, did HGs ever age well. Before my massive break, HGs were a huge pile of garbo typically and now they're barely a step behind. This definitely the case with this remaster of the HGUC Zeta Gundam. I'm loving this kit so far and it's perfect for doing my own custom colors finally. It's only my favorite Gundam.

That's a good looking machine and cuts a better silhouette than ever. 



Box art is nice. I always dig bending saber shots.


Godhands and a HG? I'm not using them as my main cutter, don't worry!


Chest was easy breezy. This kit is a parts former so it's less on the transformation engineering.


Show them the guns and that's it for now. More to come!

Star Wars Jedi Academy Releases on Nintendo Switch and Sony Playstation 4 TODAY!


Star Wars Jedi Academy just dropped on Nintendo Switch and Playstation. I'm excited because not only is that a quality single player game, but the multiplayer is amazing and the Switch port has it intact. This should breathe new life in a fantastic classic game.

Star Wars Jedi Academy is available for $19.99 USD for Digital Release Only.

Argama Hangar #5 Part I - What's on Deck?

Wow. Been awhile. Where to begin? Well, it's COVID-19 mania around these parts and me and the wife have been self isolated like responsible people and that leaves me with plenty of Gunpla and Vidja, that's for sure.

If I can put Animal Crossing and Doom Eternal ( I went hard on that meme) down for a bit. I have been chugging away at MG 1/100 Nu Gundam Ver. Ka which has been embarrassingly in progress for years now. I also am wrapping up the RG Full Unicorn Gundam which I love aside from those damned waist pieces. I'll have posts for those finished kits. There's been a quite a few finished kits since I took this long hiatus of blogging as well, i'll get those up. 

As far as WIP Posts, I have one lined up for the HG Zeta Gundam Revive and the RG Zeta Gundam to celebrate the relaunch of the blog. I have cool plans for the HG Zeta as it will probably be one of the first kits I test my new airbrush on that my wife got me for Christmas. The weather is turning warmer and hopefully soon this virus will fade away as well. Stay tuned for Part II as I try to organize my backlog and WIPs into one coherent post. Oh boy.

Later, Newtypes!

A Sign of a New Zeta

Welcome to the launch of ZetaNewtype.com. It's a relaunch of my former Gundam Modeling (Gunpla) blog and for the most part this will be a continuation of such, along with more musings about other aspects of Gundam, Video Games and more. My last post was May of 2011. Pardon my dust as I tweak various things around the place for spring cleaning and get prepared for delivering the news.

Later, Newtypes!
