Just came off watching Ep 3 of Gundam Age. I'll say this. This one delivers the punch I've been looking out for since Ep 1. While Ep 1 didn't really have the epic entrance of a Gundam like Setsuna's Exia in 00, this Ep takes the cake in terms of fireworks, battle scenes and character depth.

My new fad of the moment are guns. They are the most underrated part of Gunpla, I feel. Cos most people concentrate on the mecha itself or the dio as a whole. But few give serious thought and work to guns. If I had all the time in the world for my GBWC piece, I'll give some serious effort to the gun. After all, a Gundam is only as good as its weapons, no? lol. Here are a few alternative concepts from non-Gundam genres that I've come across. Good for inspiration. Seen better? Feel free to share any of yours!

|I elongated the neck so that the head can swivel left and right without obstruction by the collar armour, as is what usually happens with OOB kits. Then just added a bit of wiring details.|
Okay this is just a quick post for one of my readers Darkworkx, who asked about panel line scribing. I found it a bit too cumbersome to explain it at the box chat on the side. Firstly, this video is NOT by me. Just something I found on Youtube. It's also not the ONLY method of scribing panel lines, but I think it's pretty comprehensive.

Check it out, fellas - New images of the enemy in Gundam Age - the Zedas MS (are they even mobile suits??) have been released on Gundam Guy. Here are my thoughts on the design - NOT BAD. Not bad at all, actually! I was all ready to condemn the Age designs, but I gotta admit, some of them are starting to grow on me.

Okay fellas, finally I've got something decent enough to show. THIS, is my GBWC project - the Delta Maximus!!! As you can see, it's still nowhere near completion. But I think I've got the rough form of the mecha pinned down. The objective was to armour up the Delta Plus, give it an alternate colour scheme, and turn it into one souped up version as badass as the Sinanju, but as heroic as any Gundam.

I'm excited fellas. Cos HAG's workshop is finally opening. Yeah you heard right, friends in Singapore. HAG is opening a workshop...an ACTUAL workshop that will sell kits, supplies AND hold classes with airbrush facilities to boot. Oh, and throw in displays too. The works.

When I was a basketball player for my school, I would psyche myself up by listening to some kickass music just before a game. It may be a song, or a soundtrack from a movie, whatever. You know....the kind that gives you goosebumps....that makes you wanna go out there and take over. The kind that they play in those sports movies, where the team's running past the lockers, through the narrow corridor and into the arena for their make-or-break game, or in movies where the hero and stuff arrives. Hero music. Crap that, as you're taking a shave in the morning and listening to, makes you feel as though your shave's gonna decide the fate of the world, or stuff that makes you feel like you're a genius at work, even if you're just taking a shit. LOL

Howzit goin guys? Since y'all been so patient I've decided to give you Gundam Age 1 in all his Ninja glory! As I've said, Bandai deserves credit for the engineering behind this one. So simplistic, yet sublimely elegant. That's all I can say. While I still have my reservations about the designs of this series, lets just sit back and watch this kit come to life eh? I'm tellin' you. He's one BADASS NINJA. Check it:

While my GBWC project is currently brewing, but at a very slow rate, just thought I'd indulge myself here on a recent action figure I picked up. Sorry Gundam/ TF/ mecha fans, this one's not for you. But I reckon that if you've got an eye for sci-fi robo stuff, there's room for your tastes to expand! :P
