Hi-Nu Gundoom- WIP 3

 would be better for an annual wrap up post rather than this, but i want to clear off any post backlogs before welcoming 2013. and a rather overdue one. continuing on Hi-Nu Gundoom, first actually the first kit i got on to ever since i'm home for summer break, yet i put off posting the last part of the WIPs, going for Byarlant instead. nonetheless, lets give this kit chances to show its colors~

 laid them out and begin to self-blaming for putting it off for so long! lolz

HGUC Byarlant Custom WIP 2

 i feel the drive in me now....GUNPLA DRIVE ON!

 more stuff accomplished :D and by far, i don't do any detailing involving pla plates yet, most are all from scribing extra panel lines

one of the biggest complaint i heard for Byarlant is these hollow parts, funnily for all claws of the arm and feet. filled them in with epoxy putty, and waiting to be sanded flush

HGUC Byarlant Custom WIP 1

 well, like I am going to resist this beast? XD
and here i am again, back at home for summer break, as well as back to gunpla. this isn't actually the first one i had for the break, as i actually went ahead and finish up my Hi-Nu Gundoom, which i will post up the remaining WIPs and get it topcoated for the full gallery (dammit weather stop raining and gimme sunlight already!)

anyway, this is one of the most highly anticipated kit, ever since Gundam UC EP4 was released, and yea, he's freaking badass and granted with the unique design, i am sold for a box of it ^^

 lovely lovely lovely boxart, capturing its crowning moment of glorious awesomeness from the episode

TF Prime: Cyberverse Commander Optimus Prime

and when all are the most unwary, a blog post!

well, yeah, TFP hits me good. i didn't expect on how bad i'll get hook to TF series, mainly since i prefer the real robot type (Gundam etc) and yeah, all i wanted after the live action trilogy was one decent TF figure. and then i picked up and watch the Prime series. so good it is, so bad the figures are (most of them). nonetheless, here's the budget (budget?) version which is kinda neat, and packed something worth looking into

Fishing in Adelaide- Part 1

 well, since i am to spend another two years (or three) here, why not carry over another hobby of mine and enjoy it here. with the water bodies we got here in aussie, i think it is a crime not to test the beings that dwell within the water.

why part 1? it will be more than one part, as i quest to different trips and such :D

and despite the title mentioning Adelaide, the first part isn't at Adelaide, specifically at Goolwa, 100km++ away from the suburb life at Adelaide Metro, and most people come down over here for its infamous cockles

 but we're here for carps. quite the game fish this one, though not so for consumption over here in Australia where they dwell in and kick the natives off their places. highly invasive they are, so that the government mentions

"European Carp are an introduced species and are not to be returned to the water alive. "

so it seems. as mentioned, they are, for their high abundance, is rather easy to catch and the ones that quite give the fight. a good 2 pounder can run off with your lines multiple times, and forcing it in may result in unhooking it off (had that with my first carp off the Torrens)

 and where we're off to in Goolwa? under the bridge

 one heck of a spectacular place to cast your line :D

River Monsters

quite a big fan of the tv show (or at least of what i could get off youtube), all aligned with my angling hobby, and somewhat reliving back the hunter inside me. didn't actually think that i will impulse out and buy the book, great read nonetheless (still don't finish it up though)

also, considering that i will be around adelaide for a couple of long time, it should be compulsary for me to test out the water here :D

he's the man! Jeremy Wade that is!

HG Zeydra Group Build!- CHARGE-KICKED!!


(sticky post) 07/10/2012 update


yea, it isn't good to hold this up any longer. procrastinating on this is pretty much adds up to what i had been procrastinated with my school stuff haha ^^;;;

anyway, to look at it, a GB is bound to have people not making to the deadline and i am thoroughly awared with that. nonetheless, to have participants that managed to pull through and get their zeydra done nice and shine :D and i hereby thank you all for participating, and who knows if i am to organize more of these in future xD and thus, may i congratulate to all four completers (?) that gloriously completed their Zeydra, the honor is all yours to BD77, CD, Zeon Two Six and Jack Chua. you folks have interesting takes on your own Zeydra and within my no-gunpla period, it is truly enjoyable to observe and follow those WIPs and view the results

and for the bonus part, the Hyper Zeydra Kick contest. the previous Hyper Sinanju kick had its winner through the democracy of voting (lulz) but for Zeydra's, i decided to decide it by my own...if you choose to put your faith on my randomness... ^^;;;;

anyway, without further ado, may i present you what i thought as the best Zeydra kick!

yeaaaaaaaa. i kinda think that the whole is agreeing for this. i broke into absurd laughter till i hurt my sides badly, so yeaa, with such gratuitous amount of lulz, Jack Chua received my award for Hyper Zeydra Kick and thus receiving a HGUC Unicron Destroy Pearl edition, courtesy of Tsukinari Mugetsu of To Aru Shumi no Tsukinari . congratulations again to the best kick and also to everyone joining this group build. and thus, with due respect, this GB officially ends.

 thank you  and thank you again :D

MSG AGE- Thoughts and stuffs


 definitely one of the best gundam face design ever!

been a year since it first aired, with so many loves, hates, speculations, spoilers, trivia, random stuffs, trolls, fans, haters, lovers and such, and MSG-AGE has finally wrapped up. three generations, 4 main protagonist Gundams, random wears, timeskip and such, prepare for my final and overall thoughts on this highly-conspired (conspired?) series.

must admit thought, this is the first gundam series that i actually follow accordingly to its broadcasting period, so yeah, i enjoyed it.

ZD-Base 3rd anniversary \o/

uhh well, it is supposedly be yesterday actually ^^;;;;; was busy and tired after a Geology field trip, so yea. might make a post on that trip soon, i think

so yea, 3rd year in blogging. lotsa stuff happening round and around. looking at how previous anniversary have me looking forward to stuff, i hardly looking forward to anything in modelling term, until i return back to Malaysia XD

oh well, it's 3 years already, and kinda a bit sad to see on how some blogger folks are retiring from blogging. i kinda miss those old days where i happily scrolls down the blogroll everyday for updates and stuff. oh well, that can't be helped. some may get a bit busy to do blogging or such.

and again, thanks for the supports and this blog will continue to run as long as i am still breathing =D

thanks and have nice day

(i dont know what pic to put so have this. at least you know that i am not making myself rusty ww)

(i must admit i do like beaches to some extent)

Crab Raking @ Thompson Beach

oh yes, it's weekend and i'm up to trying out something new

hello Thompson Beach, SA

HG Zeydra Group Build! Unveil the power of the RED!!

because we all know that HYPER ZEYDRA WHATCHAMACALLIT KICK is just all that awesome


following our somewhat successful HGUC Sinanju GB, i am again in awe of that awesome kick Zeydra delivered in Episode 20 of Gundam AGE. somewhat related to Sinanju (red MS, 3 times faster, kick etc etc)

Now, how will it rolls?

-Preparation time! i'll set up a time range to gather up people for this GB, once we got enough people, we'll commence up the build
-Entries! Only HG Zeydra AND ONLY FOR BLOGGERS. like our Sinanju GB, things will be totally managed via blogs, links from your blogs will be compiled here and such
-DATELINE! I'll have around 2 months for participants to complete up their Zeydras. and here, if cannot make it in time is okay, but you'll lose the chance to get yourself into the contest

later i'll add more stuff

and so, what should i do with the Zeydra?
- straight build repaints mod scratch build blablabla anything is accepted! we are here to enjoy building Zeydra AND to encourage blogging as well. so you get my idea there ;D
-but one thing though, try to finish up in time XD

and that's that. this is merely an introductory post, so lemme know what you think on this and also stuff to add in and such.

oh and btw, i will be solely organizing it. due to some reason i wont be joining and build one. so yea

Temporary Workshop Shutdown

to make way for my studies


and boxed

will be continuing for my degree in Uni Of Adelaide, Australia and got this 'order' to not have any active gunpla activity over there, so yea. no more gunpla stuff from me until i return home, possibly once a year.

but, still gonna have stuff like news, or sharing tips, or commenting new releases here, so this blog wont be dead like so :D also putting hiatus on ZD-CW as well.

now that i stopped for a while on my main blog content, need to find something to replace that.

that's all for now, have a good day :D

Scarlet Gundam 01 [Remilia]- Teaser

this will be my future GBWC entry :D

(i think i missed some details there. ah well, at least the base look is there :D)

for further refining, need slimmer legs, and skirts will be better if made longer :D

aaaaaaaaaaand yes, gonna make that huge Yougen youkai thing as well :D

>.> to be frank, Zedas is now apart, Hi-Nu can't be painted as i don't have enough supplies and Impulse just fell off the desk (nothing broke except a peg for side skirt D:) so yea. i came up with this
