Mission 001 - Building my first Gundam Kit

I ordered my first (two) Gundam model kits from Japan. They will be my first model kits since i was maybe ten.
Got myself a Qubeley and a Hyaku Shiki, both Master Grade. They were shipped in separate parcels and the Qubeley arrived already, so i'll start building that one first.

Snap fitted it first, which was fairly easy and took 3~4 hours.

For a pretty finish i need to airbrush it, so i ordered an airbrush kit with compressor and pistol as well as plenty of Tamiya acrylic colors. Next step will be taking the Qubeley apart again, smoothing out all rough spots and sanding the whole thing before priming.
