Hello! Galio here, In this blog post, I want to show how to customize Reborns Gundam, adding paint and kitbashing. I would highly recommend that you watch the video first.

I bought this gunpla in early January. At first I thought this gunpla was weird because this was my first build in which the shoes look like high heels. While customizing this kit, I searched through Google and looked for inspiration that would look good on my build. After searching for a while, I saw a certain custom build. I thought the build looked cool, that is why I decided to use that idea and apply it to the build by extending the legs and arms.
CUSTOM LEGS AND ARMS:
When you want to extend the legs and arms the first thing you will need is a donor. The best way to look for a donor is looking for scrap Gundam. By using scrap Gundam you’ll repurpose the broken parts into new ones. So I found two scrap Gundam that will go perfectly with Reborns Gundam! The first one is HG 1/144 Gusion Rebake’s leg connector and arm, the second is 1/100 Crossbones skirt armor. For this custom to blend, the first thing I did was drill the leg part to fit the leg connector and glued the other parts.
For the color scheme, I liked the color before so I reused some of the colors and changed some, like the shoulder and chest part.
Here’s what I used:
Color #1: For the whole body
Coating #1: Flat
Tamiya top coat flat
Water Decal: RG 1/144
