Taking someone’s suggestion, I decided to start on my 1/100 Avalanche Exia. This will be my first 1/100 Gundam 00 model and I’m looking toward the finished product. Of course, I’ll be taking my SWEEEEEEEET time with it as usual so allow me some time xD. Hopefully be done by Wednesday but I can’t promise anything though ^_^;
I’ve received numerous praises and questions on how clean I built my models so I’ll also be using this model to write up a page on the tools I use and how I build my models. It won’t exactly be a tutorial but hopefully, some of you will find it useful :)
On another note, I’m going to start taking pictures in higher resolution as I’m beginning to be unsatisfied with my past photos resolution (640×480). I can’t seem to capture the feeling I want with that size. How does 800×600 (see images above) and 960×720 (see my GFF RX-78-2) sound to everyone? I’ll also begin to ditch the “gallery” format that I’ve been using this whole time (basically dumping all uploaded images onto the page as thumbnails) and start uploading each image ONE AT A TIME and actually inserting into the post (see GFF RX-78-2).
Suggestions or ideas, anyone? ^_^
This is something new I’ll do regularly with each post from now on. This part of the post is basically me talking about myself, my thoughts, rants and how my life is going and whatnot.. for you to get to know me better personally. In other words, the acutal “blogging” from me xD.
For the first tidbit (technically second, if you count my previous post ^^;), I’ll share my general thought on Gunpla- fitting for a tidbit since this is what my blog is about ^_^.
Okay… I collect and build Gundam models mostly for the “Gundam” and not so much for the “model”. This is why I don’t paint them. Compared to people like Danny Choo, Gundamaniac, and Martin Wandering, I feel ashamed to actually call Gunpla one of my hobbies; I put nowhere near as much effort as they do xD. Now you probably have this question- “Why not just collect MSiA then?” – Simple. I hate MSiA. Period. They are ugly, low quality, and small (remember, this is my opinion). I want my Gundams to look great as a display and I like them a little bit bigger. Building them myself also makes it fun and more enjoyable than simply having two MSiA “clothesline” each other >_>. There’s also a sense of productivity for me while building a model :). I started plastic snap-on stuff (usually from those toys that come with a candy) around the age of 6 or 7 and my first gunpla at the age of 11 with the 1/100 Double X. I BUILT THAT MODEL WITH MY BARE HANDS! Nothing else! XD
This is all for today. Hope that wasn’t too long of a read. More for later :)
I know this is ULTRA GHETTO but I can really care less xD. My only lighting for building gunpla is this lamp and it snapped yesterday. It’s night time now so I have to do something temporary to get it up so I can see that I’m building Avalanche properly. AND IT WORKS!
