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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
It’s usually the little things which sticks with you. When it comes to painting GK, the part which I look forward to the most is the detailing. The “little things”. Celia was fun but the amount of detailing needed was pretty small as she was mostly block colours. There was just a little gold here [...]
The first proper post of 2014 and so we should go with a post which this blog was set up to share! You may remember that I was preparing a second kit for painting along with Celia. Well, with Celia completed it meant that I can go straight into painting Yoko! And it was a [...]
At this point, we should be near the final stretch for the kit but upon checking things, I have a feeling I’m going to want to go back to several parts and repaint them… Then there’ still the bit about the eyes, the most hated part of any kit I paint. Volks were kind enough [...]
And now back to our regularly scheduled posting… For as long I can anyway. The alien menace is back and I must return to XCOM to fight the enemy within!!!
Still, Progress on Celia has been pretty solid, though the fact that she’s mostly solid colours helped a fair bit!
And I’m sure I’ve [...]
Progress has been slow and steady thus far for Celia. A lot of time was spent playing around with the armour colour. Initiall, I went for chainmail but that looked a bit too dark. It was great for something which was well worn but I get the feeling that presentation plays a big part in [...]
