Kansai Inochi

Well I am a bit late as usual. If any of you are still around would like to take gander at what I’m up to now, then feel free to just hop on over to Kansai Inochi!

Yup… I am studying in Japan right now and this is the reason why this place is on a hiatus once again. Working on the applications, applying for scholarships, filling out other paperworks, do this, do that, get ready… and now here I am. This is also the main reason why I’ve been so inactive on the Gunpla side of things. Ironic isn’t it? I am quitting Gunpla to go to the heaven/kingdom/birthplace of all that plastic goodness xD.

My new site won’t contain Gundam stuff but if you like my random food and miscellaneous life posts here, then you should be very well familiar with what I will be talking about there. Basically another blog about life in Japan just like this place is another blog about Gundam models. Another new learning experience for me just like when I started this blog.

If any of you are pondering about studying abroad in Japan in the future, maybe Kansai Inochi will help provide you with a more personal glimpse of what you can expect to experience over there. A “home look” at Japan perhaps? xD But anyway, I hope to make the blog helpful to those who are interested while still delivering my personal touch on things. Also feel free to ask me any questions related to Japan and I will try my best to get the answers for you.

I was actually already in Japan by the time I made my last post here but it’s just been so… busy that I couldn’t sit down and get back here sooner. it’s only been less than a month, but I’ve done A LOT here already. Traveling, trying out new things, meeting new people, learning how to commute, culture shocking myself… it’s all there. And more will come.

Any Gundam related things? I met up with Rob from ASM for the first time and we had an all too awesome of a time talking about life, Gundam and everything in between while he showed me around Osaka.

Well, anything else you wanna know then you can just hop on over…

See you there!

Gunpla Inochi: To Be Continued…

Hello Everyone,

I deeply regret telling you all this but… my time here is up. I really wished I could’ve went out with a bang instead of quietly disappearing like this. I was hoping to finish the Kshatriya then move onto the MG FA Gundam and ending it with the MG Deathscythe. That’s not possible now. What a crappy and lame ending this is -_-;

Well, I can’t do anything about it now since I am far away from home. I won’t be closing this place down or anything though; this will just be a long “official” hiatus. I’ll try to bring this place back to life once again hopefully starting next summer if anyone still cares. I know I’ll still care for sure. Yea… sorry for disappointing all of you. I’ll totally understand if you want to leave some hate comments ^^;. I deserve a few at least.

Like I’ve mentioned in my return post, I am starting a new chapter of my life right now which I want to share with all of you when I get things set up and ready to go. It should be fun and interesting I hope. It will be different that’s for sure. It’s a whole new world after all. A whole new familiar world.

So yea… this is it for now. Thank you for all your support all these years. It was all in good fun while it lasted. It has been a pleasure.

Cracked Paint

Maybe I should have double checked my paint chemistry or something before working on this and I wouldn’t have run into this problem. But what’s done is done; I was gonna topcoat the Kshatriya a few days ago until I noticed the black paint on the trims are cracking. I wonder if this is due to the type of paint in the Gundam paint marker mixing on acrylic (the white paint)? Now I need to come up with a solution where I can fix this without starting over or ruining the look too much. The parts look like shit now. blah.

2-in-1 Review: HG Stark Jegan and Jegan ECOAS

I need to expedite my reviews since I am already taking too long so here’s a first: Double review! HG 1/44 Stark Jegan and the HG 1/144 Jegan ECOAS Type!

But please forgive me if the review is a bit confusing to follow since I didn’t know the best way to mix the reviews together. Hope it is not too bad though ^^;. Enjoy!

Let’s Eat Again…

It’s finally summer time. School is out, the sun is bright, and everyone is free. What to do besides gunpla? Eat with friends!

Sleeves

Went from this…

Last Kshatriya WISP

Yay… finally got around to the last part of the model (haven’t assembled it yet; still cleaning the pieces). Sadly, it is also the most repetitive. Made even more annoying in that most of the parts are round. Terribly draining to clean the nubs off.  Oh well… at least I can say I am almost finally done with this beast…

The rest of the parts. Arghhh… Those nubs on curves and grooves! With this done, I just gotta finish the sleeves then topcoat. I hope to finish this and roll out its review the same week as the Stark Jegan’s… whenever that may be ^^;. Until then… continue to work on more Gunpla. Like my first MG Gundam in awhile.
