Gundam Eclipse Member Spotlight: ah559881
Interviewer: Autobot (January 2015)

Introduction
1) How did you come up with your tag (ah559881)?

It was my student ID number it's been with me ever since elementary school. I've become quite fond of it.

2)Real name/occupation/race/residence?

Austin Scott Hill student at Weatherford College.

3) What/who introduced/inspired you to start Gunpla (or plastic models in general)? Any influential modelers that you really look up to?

Like everyone gundam wing I remember my father giving me the 1/144NG wing gundam as a gift when I was a child. But I somehow think he exposed me to model kit's earlier than that. The molders I look up to are DC23, barudos @YouTube, and GunPla Fixation.

4) Any other interest/hobbies besides Gunpla?

Casual gaming sometimes, and a lot of Facebook browsing.

5) What's your favorite animation/robot design/videogame?

Defiantly Armord Core if anything I love it more than gundam. I would like to see a OVA of armored core someday hopefully.

6) How long have you been building Gunpla/when did you start?

Ever since I was five years old or so. Plamo tsukurou introduced airbrushing gunpla modeling to me. It was very fascinating. At first I had no clue how to really model besides snap a kit. GE really helped me learn and grow.

7) How do you feel about the direction the hobby is heading? What do you like to see?

More customized build from everyone in the online community. I want to see people push creativity beyond just a OOB painted build. Expand it into something different and exciting.

8) Would you like to introduce more people getting into this hobby? the forum?

Defiantly I want to show people you can start from the bottom and grow. Building is simply wonderful and exciting. That's a strong reason I make YouTube videos currently.

9) Do you like and enjoy entering a contest/competition? What do you like the most about it?

Love me a good competition. I'm currently ready for the 2015 GBWC I'm hoping to take best of show in the summer at my local convention. The idea of multiple modelers wavering building skills against another is fun at heart!

10) Any of your hobby skills that you obtain were applicable to yourself in real life/work?

Only practical application I see it origination skills and time management.

11) Most memorable build?

My AGE-2DB not one of my favorite colored builds but the building experience was great.

Posted Image

12) Was there a build that you think you messed up and wanted to throw it away? What did you end up doing?

I have not come across a build like that yet. I tend to plan and take action carefully when building.

13) How did you stumbled on the GE?

I think it was gundamguns on YouTube advertising summer wars. At that point I was very inexperienced.

Current Build Experience
14) What are you currently building?

Right now my XSB-05 Sword Burst Gundam.

15) How do you like the build so far and why did you make any modifications (if any)? Influences, etc? Tried something new compared to previous builds?

It went very smooth everything worked great. I tend to study other modelers techniques and use them myself. Example DC23 has this cool armor panel separation method. I used it on my build.

Posted Image

16) Toughest challenge(s) in the build?

Getting the microsaws to saw straight at first. Once you get it it's super easy.

17) Were there changes that had to be made midway in the build?

I decided to change a few colors from my original idea.

18) Do you recommend what you build/did to others and what level of experience/age group do you think is required to reproduce similar work?

I wouldn't recommend it unless you have experience. But it's possible because of my explained YouTube videos on the build.

19) Like your results so far? if you have an opportunity to redo certain parts or steps, what parts/steps do you want to do differently? or leave it the same?

A few parts need some touch ups but everything is clean and ready for painting.

Posted Image

20) What kit(s)/project(s) are you planning to build in the near future?

It's hard to say I'm currently thinking of something zeta like for my next MG. But I have a commission coming to me soon.

21) Something new you want to try on your next build? Something new to learn?

Detail panel scribing and color variation like RG's have.

22) Any kits that you're dream of having, even though no manufacturer has made one yet? re-hash from pass anime/sci-fi series?

Zoids Lord Gale, and a Armored Srike from Blue Gender would love me some of them!

Final Thought

23) If you could offer one piece of advice to someone starting out with the hobby, what would that be?

Don't rush your build keep everything planed and organized.
