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 [...]

Wonder Festival 2014 Summer garage kit highlights

Bit of a late post this week as I’ve been working on the Tomopop GK coverage. You can check them out for a more complete gallery of the GK at this years Summer Wonder Festival but for this post, I’ll be focusing on the ones which I liked the most. Starting with the 1 kit [...]

Follow the Galaxy Fairy!

Just another quick post this time but I felt that this deserves a shoutout. As some of the more regular readers will know, I have a real soft spot for Sheryl Nome. She’s one of my favourite characters from any anime and I’ve built up a decent sized collection of figures of just Sheryl, which [...]

Project: HomuHomu (part 3)

Just a very quick update this time around to show that progress is being made with Homura, albeit very slowly. The problem is that the parts quality is very low so after priming the parts, hundreds of airholes became visible on pretty much every part! The legs got it worst but I’ve been using liquid [...]

Project: HomuHomu (part 2)

Man, it feels good to get back into painting a little. Even if it’s pretty basic stuff. I’ve now completed the base for Homura and have moved onto the main part of the kit. The lack of instructions on how to assemble the base was a pain but I think I managed to work it [...]

And suddenly, LOOT!

Apologies for the lack of updates in recent weeks. A combination of busy busy busy followed by a long-ish holiday where I basically shut down meant that I haven’t really done much in terms of model building or gaming. Well, the gaming bit was a lie but I went back to some of my older [...]

A pleasant surprise

Back when I did a small preview post for my Grizzry Panda Busou Shinki kits, I didn’t get very far as I explained that I was missing a core piece of the kit as my kit had a duplicate part instead of what I needed. So, I contacted Grizzry Panda and he said that he [...]

Project: HomuHomu (part 1)

And from the back of one project, I get to jump into the next with no procrastination!! Pretty rare for me but with the purchase of the 2 busou shinki ladies, I now have 3 kits from maker Grizzry Panda and that’s just too many so I’m diving straight into the first kit I bought [...]

Shot through the Heart, and you’re to Blame!

And so, after a slight delay, (or a very long one considering how long this kit has been in my “to do” pile) here is my third Yoko kit!

Looking back, I’m not sure why I went and purchased her, but having now completed the kit, I’m glad that I did, even though it [...]
