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!

Sleeves

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.

WISP: HG 1/144 Kshatriya Main Unit

I am really taking my sweet time with this kit so progress is really slow but that is always better than rushing; I don’t want to make any silly mistakes or burn myself out already (damn, I need to increase my Gunpla stamina…). If you need more proof that the HG Kshatriya is actually an MG in disguise, then the arms and legs should be convincing.

WISP: HG 1/144 Kshatriya Body and Stark Jegan Completed

A bit slow on my part this time on working on Ksh’s body. The body is practically a scaled down MG body minus a cockpit! Inner frames, multiple layers, nice color separation and all. The outer armor was so tight fitting, I thought it might snapped or get warped!

Free Gunpla GET

I came to work one day and found a paper bag with these two inside on my desk. They were left for me by a fellow coworker who was leaving. He asked me before if I wanted them because he knows I was into Gunpla, but I refused and suggested he should sell them instead; I already have a huge backlog that I am not really chipping away at. Looks like they ended up in my hands after all. He believes that my Gunpla skill will actually bring out more of the Gundam. While I don’t find that true, I was still motivated and encouraged by his words. Even if I don’t get around to building them, these two will still be a memento of my coworker for me.

REVIEW! MG Kamen Rider W FangJoker

I have to count up my sins for the time I have been gone but for now, here’s the first review of the year from me. The long overdue (hahaha) MG Kamen Rider W FangJoker!

WISP: HG 1/144 Stark Jegan

Yea… I know, a Work in Slow Progress post. Yea… I know. I’m just as shocked as you are ^^;. When was the last time there was a WISP post? It was back in October. That’s how long it has been. Looks like there are going to be a few “first time since…” type posts in the coming weeks. Anyway, instead of just sitting here idly while I wait for the right time to go find the parts I need to finish up MG FangJoker, I figured I’d put the time to good use by throwing the Stark Jegan together. Hey, gotta start sometime I guess…
