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 [...]
I’ve been looking forward to this next kit for quite some time. Truth be told, I was planning on doing my Try-GK Yoko first but with the anime adaptation of Walkure Romanze currently airing, it felt appropriate for me to take on my kit of Celia Kumani Aintree. Hell, I fell in love with this [...]
Apologies for the lack of a post last week. For once, I’m going to pull the “real-life” card. Last week was just ridiculously hectic that I didn’t have much time to do anything of note. Still, after things calmed down, I was able to proceed with more work on Asuna and also max out my [...]
And back to Asuna, at least for a little while before I go back to Tales of Xillia. Need to do my 2nd playthrough…
But I did manage to do some more detailing and also painted the arms too. Still need some more detailing required in certain areas. The putty needs to be painted [...]
Not much of an update this week. Just some slow progress made on Asuna along with a few headaches along the way (Like huge seam lines appearing after priming, necessitating the need to sand them down and redo the whole process again).
Here’s her current state. The details on the legs have been tidied [...]
And now for our regularly scheduled stuff. Feels like it’s been ages since I did a post on my regular garage kits but that doesn’t mean that I’ve been neglecting them.
It’s strange but I don’t usually get buyers regret over my purchases. Even if my enthusiasm for a kit [...]
