As advertised…

… an update! I’m working on the flying Cammy-chan. I’m always bothered by the I-beam she’s using as support, and I think the only diorama that’d fit is something like a construction site. So here we go. The idea is to have her jumping over some collapsing structures, and she just avoided the danger of… Continue reading As advertised…

Flying Cammy

I was partially done with the Yukishiro Cammy and was trying to test fit her against her base (yes I should’ve done it earlier 😀 ). Wow! I didn’t realize she was only hinged to the base via her hand. Now her pose makes more sense to me, and I have some ideas about possible… Continue reading Flying Cammy

Weekend crunch #2

Continue from the last post… The kit has an elongated layout, so I had to get a frame that has similar sort of aspect ratio. Again Walmart answered my call 🙂 I debated a bit on whether I wanted to save the trouble of cutting an acrylic sheet to replace the frame’s glass, but I… Continue reading Weekend crunch #2

Weekend crunch

I rarely take a whole weekend to work on a kit, but I kinda got obsessed with finishing Four this time. Except for the few hours that I spent watching Blood+ — these dang end-with-cliffhanger shows are so evil 😀 Her bed frame is made with craft wood, I banged it together and applied wood… Continue reading Weekend crunch

Back to Four

While waiting for some mail order supplies for the Griffith on Horse kit, I got back to my fabrics experiments. Last week I went to Jo-ann’s and got some pretty nice “Prom dress” fabric that has great patterns and texture. The problem is that it has these gold rings glued on the dang thing which… Continue reading Back to Four

Griffith on Horse #2

Mucho sanding and priming later, the horse is sort of ready for painting. But I wanted to do more test fitting with its cape first. The instructions said put the cape pieces in hot water and bend to shape. I think they’re just too thick for that, so I’m thinking of dremeling the edge so… Continue reading Griffith on Horse #2

Horse-y!

I think it’s time for a “big” kit project… I was thinking of finishing up the Lilith , but got stuck on coming up with an idea for a base. The other alternative is to do the Sorayama Amazon (link contains nudity) with the wet tricks I did with Ayanami, that’d also kick butt. Or… Continue reading Horse-y!

Cammieeeessssss

I don’t get new kits often these days, but when two cool Cammy’s arrived I’m still quite excited 🙂 This is the masterful Reflect’s Cammy kit. The packaging is just a bit overdone! Loads of empty checkboxes to be filled in for custom declarations, and the famous “Do not ship liquids, blood or fluids in… Continue reading Cammieeeessssss

Aftermath

Still haven’t cleaned up the remains of angel-san’s wings. I almost used up a whole bag of feathers for them. Looks a bit sad doesn’t it

Decal hell

Now that I’m fed up with installing extensions and crap, time to get back to some modeling… One of the projects in my backlogs – SV-51 gamma from Macross Plus, which you can still get from HLJ. I really like the flamboyant patterns on it, but it was a lot of work getting them on… Continue reading Decal hell
