Nu Gundam is Not Just for Show!

The omake(おまけ) for the HGUC 1/144 RX-93 Gundam is now up after the review ^^. There’s a slightly bad twist on the characters and also quite a lot of seiyuu in-jokes so I hope you get all the references… xD. Anyhow, I’ve gotten rusty since this is my first review omake since Astray vs. Astray but hope you can still find it enjoyable ^^;.

HGUC Nu Gundam Review Out!

At long last… I have another Gunpla review up since the end of October o_o. The delay was mainly caused by bad weather preventing me from topcoating the model. Hate to say it, but the review is actually “incomplete” since the omake is not up yet (will finish before end of the year)^^;. Still, just thought some of you might like to at least take a gander at the more relevant part of the review first (as in, the actual “review”) before I plug in the bonus.

One important lesson I learned- Do not topcoat during the winter no matter how “nice” the weather might be. the chemical takes forever to dry and doesn’t go on the parts as nicely as during the warmer seasons. With this in mind, I don’t think I want to work on any bigger projects (or I can just build them but not actually “finish” them) until I can devise a way to topcoat elsewhere (my garage? but my car is in there…) or just wait until it is above 50 degrees F…

I guess I can review some more SHF for the meantime… xD. Anyway, hope you enjoy what I have to offer for now- here it is, the HGUC RX-93 v Gundam!

Oh, one last thing… deadline for the holiday giveaway is approaching fast. If you haven’t do so now, you have until the 20th. I’ll actually start “grading” answers now so I can announce the winner soon after it is over. Thank you all who submitted!

GO! Fin Funnel!

Finally got the very last and most repetitive part of the HGUC Nu Gundam done. Just for kicks, I counted the unnecessary: each fin funnel assembly has 28 nubs to clean. 28 x 6 = 168 nubs cleaned. 168 x 2 (from having to cut out the parts) = 336 times my side-cutter snipped plastic… just for the fin funnels! Incredible how many times your tools actually get used during the course of a single project. Anyway, let’s look at some pics…

Many assignments are being due within a week so things will be a bit slow here; the weapons is all I managed to finished. Working on the Fin Funnels right now. Some more news in a bit. Anyway, so we watched “In the Mood for Love” in one of my classes and it left me feeling a bit lonely afterwards… ^^;. Such a beautiful movie… Check out the music and the sequence!

Yea… don’t ask me why we were watching a Chinese love movie in class >_>

GUNDAM STANDart: RX-93 Nu Gundam

I’m not even gonna bother making a page for this so I’ll just talk about it here. While the box and name might look fancy, it’s actually one of those toys that come with a gum inside xD. I got this LONGGG ago (last year) and now got around to checking it out. You see check out my other two STANDart figures here (old review). In this particular volume, there are two versions of both the Nu Gundam and Sazabi that you can choose from- regular and metallic ver. Of course, I pick the one that looks better >_>.
