Project: Walkure C (part 2)

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 [...]

Project: Dead Master

Time to get back into the throes of painting more garage kits! Recently acquired another to the “to do” pile in the shape of the Charagumin Shinguji Sakura from Volks so I can’t let the pile get any bigger!

I asked some groups online as to which kit I should build next out of the [...]

Here come a few new Challengers!

You’d think that, after nearly a month since I posted about my next project, I’d have something to show for it… Well, I don’t. I place the blame mostly on the frustrating but excellent XCOM: Enemy Unknown but there’s also the fact that it’s simply a big task to clean up the parts. Progress has [...]

Project: Try-Saber (Part 1)

Being in a rut sucks… After taking a little break (and doing a little gunpla again), I really feel like doing another garage kit and with my backlog as big as it is, you’d think that there’d be no problem finding one which I really felt like working on. But after working on a really [...]

アサギ。押して参る!

Couldn’t think of any witty title to go with Asagi this time. I mean, how can you work a witty line with a character from an eroge? Tier??

She was actually completed last week but I decided to hold back posting her for a while. In any case, Asagi has now been completed!!

Project Taimanin (part 3)

Before I start, I’m going to go into rant mode for a single paragraph so you may want to skip down a little. I had managed to purge the fact that I had wasted an hour of my life watching the useless drivel that was the Black Rock Shooter OVA. In fact, I had purged [...]

Project: Tomo-Tiger has begun!

Well, this post is rather late. I blame the fact that I am away from my usual equipment and have to fight for control of the only PC in the house with family members, and by “fight” I mean “lay down my arms and let them do whatever they want”

But I did promise that [...]

The Best Laid Plans…

“No battle plan survives contact with the enemy.” Colin Powell

*Sigh* I had hoped to have found a little stability for my current situation by now but alas it was not meant to be. As it stands, I may need to find a new place to live in a months time which makes doing big [...]

At Last! Colour images of the Volks 1/4 Bayonetta!!!

After all this time and far too much teasing, Volks have finally released colour shots of their 1/4 scale Bayonetta!

Not too shabby! I do think that this kit is better than the cerberus project offering but the face, while having an appropriate expression, looks a little off. The absolutely stunning level of detail [...]

WonderFestival Winter 2010 Preview

With wonderfestival set to occur this weekend, I’m preparing myself for my usual custom of going through large numbers of Japanese sites for event coverage and pics to pick out some of the kits which stand out to me.

Johnson Huang over at Garage Kit Haven has already written up a few posts regarding kits [...]
