6, Just 6.

You know you’re getting old when you forget dates which are meant to be important to you. I think the first one to go was my own birthday. I usually get a text or quick call from a family member which serves as a prompt reminder that it’s that day…

And now, it wasn’t my [...]

Reminiscing is a dangerous pastime

This is the first post of 2013, so a part of me feels like it should be a big happy one! But it isn’t. I have a few big posts lined up but the first one of the new year is a little bittersweet. Before the Christmas holidays, I had started to build my Real [...]

Summer Loot!!

It feels like forever since I did a proper “loot” post but then I guess it’s because my hobby doesn’t really allow for large orders at once. Usually I get one kit at a time and a loot post of just 1 unfinished kit is a bit sad… I also haven’t really bought many PVC [...]

Still Keeping it Real (Grade)

Once more, with FEELING!!!

Last weeks post felt a little half finished since I hadn’t completed my plans for the Strike kit so I thought I’d use this weeks post to show it finished as well as go into a little more depth on the finished product.

And here’s how the RG Strike [...]

Keeping things Real (grade!)

It feels like the plamos are taking over. After not building one for ages, I ended up doing 2 in 2 weeks! Last week, I built the YF-29 and this week, after receiving the Real Grade Freedom Gundam, I finally got off my ass and built my RG Strike Gundam which had been sitting there [...]

(Durandal) Valkyrie Rising

Once again, after completing a painting project, I’m left with the difficult question of what to work on next!! It always happens so I should be used to it but it’s still hard to decide, especially with my backlog. Should I finally get around to building one of the try-GK kits I bought ages ago, [...]

Exterminate!

Bit of a late post this week as I have been dead tired after taking part in the London cup Kendo competition over the weekend, both as staff and competitor. Still haven’t shaken it all off yet either! And recently, I came to the realisation that I haven’t really posted much Plamo for a while, [...]

Goldfinger!

Seriously, I can’t think of a good title for this thing! It’s such a ridiculously poor taste in design!! I mean, C’MON!! Gold Joints??

*ahem* I mean to say that since I left the comforts of my regular abode for the extra long weekend (Britain got an extra day off due to some guy getting [...]

Last Frontier

One of the worst feelings a modeller can have is that feeling that, after everything is done, you know you’ve done your best… but it’s not good enough. I’m no stranger to the feeling, especially in my early days but it’s been a while since I’ve felt it. And who would have thought it would [...]

Project: Frontier (Part 2)

Well, that didn’t take too long! All the parts are now completed and the next stage is… I’m not too sure. Some areas will require painting but I’m not sure if I should work too much on the details as the decals will cover a very large area, making any panel lining either redundant or [...]
