Like everyone else, we’re really busy at this time of the year. You could even use the word swamped. Be that as it may Ryan and Syd still made time to get in the studio and record an episode of Gunpla TV. This somewhat short but sweet episode features a look at the ZOID kit Ryan will be building thanks to you viewers as well as Syd talking about the RG Zeta and its transformation. One little warning; be careful with your RG Zeta. You’ll see why in the episode.

But the best part, we kick off the contest for Episode 100! Yes, with the massive milestone that is Episode 100 we want to give away Plamo and we tell you what you have to do to get it! Here’s the lowdown:

Episode 100 ‘Show Us Your Ugly Mug Competition’.

You see our ugly mugs on the internet almost weekly but we know much less about our viewers so we wanted to do something to connect more with everyone. To enter to win some sweet plamo prizes all you need to do is take a picture of yourself with your favorite model kit. It’s that easy. Post that picture on the Hobbylink.TV facebook wall and you’re entered into the random draw. Winners will be announced in Episode 100.


– Only one entry per person
– We need to be able to see your face and favorite plamo kit clearly.
– Try make your photo look like a mug shot.

Kits featured in this video:

Show Us Your Ugly Mug Competition



  1. face…uhhhhh

  2. a mugshot ? XD as for the hazing/frosting on the windscreen , there are special cement for those clear pieces .. or can use floor polish ( a brand called future) which can double as a clearcoat .. which i occsionally use .

  3. Hey guys, good luck with everything over there. Questions about the contest, can we edit the photo, i.e. crop the model into a “mug shot”, can we have more than one model in the picture (I’m having trouble picking just one favorite)?

  4. Hi Syd,

    When I used to build model cars, I would use carpenter’s glue to attache the clear plastic pieces. Those clear pieces are not load bearing so you do not need heavy modelling cement to attach them. Most model cement works by slightly melting the plastic, that is why your clear parts are frosting. With carpenter’s glue (white glue like Lapage or Almers), it does not melt the plastic and it dries perfectly clear.

    Another trick I have heard about but not tried yet is to coat the clear parts with Future Floor Finish, an acrylic clear coat that can protect the plastic from model cement. There are numerous tutorials online about using this stuff to restore the shine to clear plastic. Some aircraft modelers will use Future to attach aircraft canopies.

  5. Congrats on being a daddy.

  6. I meant congrats Ryan on becoming a daddy! I love watching you guys and keep up the good work.
