the 8th Birthday

Yeah, I needed to sit down for that too. This blog has been going for EIGHT years!! It’s been a weird 12 months and blogging has slowed but it’s not dead yet! But, as it is tradition, the last week of May will host my annual anniversary post where I look back at all my […]

Project: True Sonic Fate (Part 1)

Just a brief update this time (again), but I’ve finished preliminary cleaning on the parts of my next project and also managed to pin the larger parts to give readers a better idea on how she looks!

There’s still a fair bit of work to do with regards to cleaning up the parts. More […]

…and for my next trick!

Apologies for the lack of posting, things have been pretty hectic around here. Still, I was able to decide on my next project and while it’s still a long way from being completed it’s pretty fun and the build quality is decent enough. There are pinholes but the parts fit is good and I’ve been […]

Winter Wonder Festival 2015 kits

Sorry about the delay in post this week guys, I’ve been collating the GK stuff for tomopop so the personal list went on the back burner for a while. That and the simple fact is that there weren’t really any new kits which really grabbed my attention. There were some which caught my eye but […]

First Loot of 2015! (And a look at Asagi!)

Confession: I’ve been pretty lazy with my hobby projects after the new year. Since I finished my PG Unicorn (no pics here I’m afraid, but there are a few on my twitter feed), I’ve been mostly hitting my gaming backlog (nearly finished Dai-2-Ji Super Robot Taisen OG after 2 YEARS!!) but I’ve also had a […]

Re-Returning!

Well, after a much needed break I have come back from a trip to Hong Kong! I seem to do this once every few years it seems but this time was much more subdued than before. Still, it didn’t stop me from getting loot! It’s just not as much as before!

And here is […]

Blue flame of the Valkyria!

Yay! She’s finished, and just in time too cos I’m off on holiday for a week after this! In any case, here’s the completed Charagumin Selvaria Bles from Valkyria Chronicles!

like most Charagumin kits, she’s actually very quick to build and paint once you get going and because the parts are (mostly) molded in […]

Project: Selvaria (Part 2)

Just a very quick update on Selvaria this time. Thankfully, being a colour resin kit, painting has gone by very quickly since the parts are already molded in the correct colours (kind of).

Much of the detailing has been done now with just the cuffs needing to be done. After that, I just need […]

Project: Selvaria (part 1)

Sometimes, you just need to know when to take a step back for a bit. After lots of procrastinating and work on Homura which basically just led to the discovery of more faults which needed to be fixed… Volks finally put my ass into gear this weekend when they unveiled their 1/4 scale Selvaria Bles […]

The Alpha and the Omega

YAY! An actual modelling post! And trust it to be KOS-MOS who broke me out of the funk! It was the ver 4 Plamo from Kotobukiya before and this time, it’s ver 1!

KOS-MOS ver 4 is the darling of the series. She’s the best known design and the one which gets all the […]
