[Completed][MG] ZGMF-X42S-Revolution Destiny Gundam Heine Westenfluss Custom - [Updated 30th December 2015]

I bought this at Macau during an overseas trip at New Yaohan shopping mall, price is quite value for money in my opinion lol.. I chanced upon this expo (Not sure when was it) limited kit there and buy it since it's cheaper than what the Singapore shopping malls sells, but still expensive than what those selling at hobby shops, so it's kind of in the middle lol..

[MB] ZGMF-X20A Strike Freedom Gundam Metal Build Edition

The next (and the last) Metal Build kit I would get, the Strike Freedom. Finally a set with my old Metal Build Destiny lol.. But I must say that the design is so damn cool, and the joints as usual are very strong as was previously seen on Destiny.

I had the urge to take my old Destiny out to do some pose shots together again lol...

[Completed][RG] ZGMF-X20A Strike Freedom Gundam Expo Limited Clear Color Ver - [Updated 22nd November 2015]

I bought this on the first day of Gunpla Expo knowing it won't last long till the second day, which really happened lol.. So I'm considered to be lucky? Lol.. Anyway, I had built the normal RG Strike Freedom before and I really love it (which is why I considered getting RG kits subsequently) so when this came out, I wanted to get that, and it's my first and last purchase I made for this year's Gunpla Expo lol..

November Updates!

Hi all! November is here and how time flies by so fast, we are almost at the end of Year 2015 lol.. As we all already know, Gunpla Expo and GBWC 2015 Singapore has come to an end 2 weeks ago. Lots of pics taken there, I attended the awards ceremony too but sadly I didn't win. But it's ok for me, as I didn't intend to win as I have said before lol.. So next year, I'm working on my next DMS project kit for GBWC 2016 and I will make improvements to it and make it more awesome than my current kit =)

Anyway, I had did a little spring cleaning on my kits and my other old works (that I used to have when I was young) today, and had them re-arrange nicely so that my two display cabinets and my house looks tidy and create more space in there lol...

Space created for the other Orange Destiny kit that I'm building soon lol...

Gunpla Expo & GBWC 2015 Singapore - Part 2

This year's event held at Serangoon Nex, from 28th October 2015 to 8th November 2015. Lots more entries for this year's GBWC too which all of them were beautiful in my opinion lol..

As I have too many photos taken, I'm splitting it up into two parts. First part will show all the Gunpla Expo exhibits while the second part will show all the GBWC Singapore finalist's entries.

October Updates!

Yay.. Finally I can actually post an update for this month early =D My new workplace so far is good, although can be quite a bit hectic but I'm still learning the ropes which is good too lol.. My exams is also coming round the corner too, most likely happening next month. But there might be a high chance that I might drop out of it, given that my GPA score isn't that delightful.. Not that I didn't care, I just couldn't juggle around most of the things that I really wanted to. Perhaps a short term upgrade course would be more suitable for me than a university degree..

Anyway, back to the main topic, which is Gundam of cos lol.. The newest Gundam series, the Iron Blooded Orphans has started airing on YouTube two weeks ago and I've watched both of the episodes they released and so far it is good, kinda more better than Gundam Reconguista in G, which I still totally no clue what the whole story is about lol... But anyway, I would recommend watching it, but as for the kits, I'm still having some mixed feelings about it, but nevermind lol..

Gunpla Expo 2015 would be officially held from 28th October to 8th November 2015 at Serangoon Nex  shopping mall (below poster). Also along the way is the GBWC 2015 which I'm participating for the first time. Sheng Tai Toys, the distributer for Bandai's Gunpla products, has notified us contestants to go to Nex on the 27th October 2015 to setup our entries there. Like I said, I'm not there to win, just to gain some experience and learn from it lol.. so excited about this event lol...

That's all for this month. Next few months I would be expecting HG Super Fumina and PG Banshee Armed Armor VN & BS parts (around November maybe) and Metal Build Strike Freedom which is in December to end it off for year 2015 lol..

[Completed][MG] PF-78-3A Gundam Amazing Red Warrior Meijin Kawaguchi's MS - [Updated 17th October 2015]

Next kit for Gundam Build Fighters Try series, the Amazing Red Warrior which is built and piloted by Meijin Kawaguchi. I'm still waiting for the day that Bandai decides to make the Build Burning Gundam lol... But before that, I generally like the kits that were featured in GBF Try series, just that I preferred to collect MG kits more lol...

[Completed][MG] Shin Musha Gundam - [Updated 5th October 2015]

I got this kit as a gift from my colleagues friends whom I worked with in school (workplace) and I had moved on to work on my new job role. All the thank you messages were at the back. Awww... =')

Back to the main topic, This kit is based on RX78-2 Gundam, added on with some samurai armor and designs lol.. And according to the manuals which I had flipped through, the legs caught my interest as it was made a single movable frame on the runner, like what we would normally see with those movable frames from the RG kits. This could be interesting build lol...

September Blog Updates

Here we are with another updates for this month =)

Well, to start off, I had move on with my job and taken on a new job role (same company), so I was busy with the handover / takeover last week after I came back from my NS reservist 2 weeks ago. And now this week I'm in the midst of adapting to my new work environment which is quite challenging but I gladly take it on lol... So I may be semi-inactive on building my kits, Not quitting, just being slowed down on the building lol...

Next thing, next upcoming kit (after Shin Musha Gundam kit) I'm still waiting for the PG Banshee Norn. And I might consider getting the Armed Armor VN and BS parts, which unfortunately it's a P-Bandai thing, but probably just wait when HAG/HAW open for pre-order... It shouldn't be expensive than the Unicorn's Full Armor set I hope. And lastly, I'm also hoping to get the MG Amazing Red Warrior, which I cancelled the order from HLJ last month due to my budget constraints.

Lastly, my kit got shortlisted for this year GBWC! So currently I'm still waiting for more info from the distributor Sheng Tai Toys on when and where GBWC is held, but most likely it would be together with the upcoming Gunpla Expo as well. More pics to take too lol.. My Darkness Mobile Suit project is currently on hold for now, also due to budget constraints lol...

That's all for this month. We'll see if there's anything to talk about next month lol..

[Completed][SD] BB Kuremai Musha Red Warrior Amazing Lady Kawaguchi's MS - [Updated 24th September 2015]

[Completed][MG] MSM-04 Acguy Principality of Zeon Amphibious MS - [Updated 11th August 2015]

I bought this kit at SG Docks At Takashimaya shopping center last time, but I was preoccupied with all the previous few build I did so it got ended up in my backlog. Now that I finished building them, I can now start to build this kit.

This kit is the so-called Beargguy's predecessor, except that it's in MG size lol... Although the kit was released many years ago, it comes with it's own base stand and water effect parts (as this MS can go underwater lol) and three little kids figurines that stands on top of Acguy's head.

August Updates!

Hi all! Sorry for not updating, especially for last month July =( I was busy with my National Day Parade rehearsals on the weekends and back to playing online games with my friends again and also back to school lol, hence there's very few updates for month of July. Anyway, I'm skipping July updates as there's not much things to cover, just only completed the RG Wing Zero and MG Wing Gundam Rinascita kits. Not much news on the GBWC either as I'm still waiting for confirmation mail from Sheng Tai Toys (distributer or supplier, I dunno...) and I highly doubt that I can take part this year as Singapore's GBWC dates could clash with my NS reservist which I'm very worried of. If it really comes to this situation, I just hope I can still take part while in reservist. If not, I might have to withdraw my submission and wait for next year's GBWC =( But then again, by the time next year's GBWC is being prepared, I could work on another kit which is also going to be a DMS project kit.

That aside, there's also not much things to highlight for this month, except for the release of MG Amazing Red Warrior and the SD Kurenai Musha Amazing, which both of them were from the Gundam Build Fighters Try series. September next month would be a rather more of a happening month, as I await for the PG Unicorn Banshee Norn and I'm planning to buy another display cabinet again lol... So I would be looking forward to September and probably I would have more to update in this blog lol..

[Completed][MG] XXXG-01Wfr Gundam Fenice Rinascita Ricardo Fellini Custom MS - [Updated 17th July 2015]

This was recently released a few weeks back, another kit from the Gundam Build Fighters anime series. I like the way the show redesigned the Wing Gundam. In fact, most of the main characters' kits I like their design alot lol... Having build the RG Wing Gundam Zero, I'm quite relieved that I'm back to building MG kits again lol...

This kit comes with a brand new action base stand which people could do custom painting on it to their preference. I'm keeping it plain for now as I don't really know what to do about it other than straight building it...

[Completed][RG] XXXG-00W0 Wing Gundam Zero EW Colonies Liberation Org MS - [Updated 6th July 2015]

The next RG kit I'm doing is the Wing Zero. I had bought this quite some time ago, just that I didn't touch it as I was busy focusing on my exams and building my GBWC entry and special kits (the SG50 Gundam and the Zaku Docks at SG event) which I wanted to build first. Now that all those are out of the way, I can start building this kit up lol...

For now, this whole kit is classified. Currently having vague ideas and penning down some points... only will be revealed when it's nearing year end GBWC is nearing lol...

Arise! The birth of the next Dark Emperor for the DMS project has risen! The terrible consequence falls upon the Holy Knight Stein when he attempted to equip the Holy Star Booster onto him, hoping that it could increase his power to defeat the Dark Arch Mage.

Click on 'Read more' to view more pics! XD

Note: I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post my WIP pics here but I will just post a few of the initial ones and then hold on the rest during the mid-way of the build until I submitted my entry... Or I will just check on the rules and regulation again and will see how lol...

Silhouette of Sinanju

*Updated 1st May 2015: I had completed gathering all the parts from other kits, dissembling them and separate them out for spray painting...

*Updated 29th May 2015: Name and details has been updated and the kit has been revealed lol...

*Updated 8th June 2015: For the past few days I had been separating the armor parts from the runners which I had completed doing that yesterday. So tomorrow I will be doing spray painting for the armor parts and the weapon parts for color testing. I had ran of Gun Metal color (everywhere also ran out lol) so I had to replace with Light Gun Metal which is supposing much lighter in color.

*Updated 9th June 2015: I hadn't posted any pics up here, yet. I do have pics taken for this kit and it's WIPs, but I'm kinda sticking to the rules that I followed during HLJ's Playing with Plamo competition last year. I know GBWC rules didn't state that but I'm just doing it just in case. So do forgive me if I don't post any pics.

But in the meantime, I had spray painted all of the main armor parts, and even went ahead to complete the Dark Emperor Stein's Dual Shield Blade and the Beam Rifle for color testing. Turns out to be real great so I'm sticking to that for now lol.. I had also implement the use of metal parts for this kit so expect more drilling again and more sacrifices of the pegs which those metal parts can't fit in..

*Updated 10th June 2015: Finally done separating the inner frame parts from the runners and I had also made some adjustments in my color plans as well, which resulted in lack of Light Gun Metal color. No worries, I could go there and get some more again and maybe buy some Flat Matt top coat as well along the way lol.. Now that this kit is pretty much complete (after spray paint and building), I should think up of some diorama for this. Not too complicated, just wanted to get the basic foundation up for GBWC, and from there I could improvise it after GBWC and reviews.

*Updated 12th June 2015: I had been building this kit for the past two days and it's currently almost complete, need to do top coating and it's pretty much done for this kit. What's left to do now is to come up a basic and simple diorama and fixed a pose. I still have time to plan this out as the GBWC for Singapore hasn't open for registration yet.

*Updated 21st June 2015: I came up with this preview picture of my work, together with my Holy Knight Stein in front. Of course the main focus is this kit that I currently build lol.. Finally a new picture in this post haha...

*Updated 28th June 2015: the foundation of the custom base stand is done. Don't be too hopeful cos it's just a simple base stand with some cut-out styrofoam blocks draped with some cloth, and a simple plaque with a simple description of my build lol...

June Updates

June was a great month for me to relax a bit from work (as it's school holidays at my workplace lol) and as everyone is aware by now, Gundam Docks at Singapore event has been ongoing for the entire month of June and will be ending on the 28th June 2015 which is this Sunday. I have been there like four times to see all the kits on display, taking pics of them, and also see the promotion price of the kits that had their price cut down low lol.. Tomorrow I will be going there again one last time to get something cheap hopefully lol...

Some latest news that I had seen, and that surprised me that it caught me off guard lol.. Ok first off Bandai made an surprise announcement that they will be producing the PG Unicorn Banshee Norn which will be releasing in September this year. This news probably caught many people by surprise, given that PG Unicorn release was barely a year, and boom.. out comes this, and it's not even P-Bandai best of all lol...

Link from Gundam Guy blog post
PG Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee Norn (Release Date: September 2015)

Next up is the Metal Build Strike Freedom that which is somewhat expected, but didn't fully expected it to be a real stuff lol.. So far Hobby Art and GG Infinite had opened the pre-order for this. Really something to look forward in December 2015, I can finally do a battle pose together with my Metal Build Destiny lol...

Link from Gundam Guy blog post
Metal Build Strike Freedom (Release Date: December 2015)

And now for my DMS project for GBWC 2015 competition status. So far my Dark Emperor Stein as said in my other blog post, the kit is already complete, what I'm left to do now is to do a simple decorations and fix a pose for it. I'm intending to use the 31x31x46 (all in cm) display case base to limit the size and work on it based on the base size it has. It should be more than enough. Once this is done, I will be taking a couple of pictures, let my friend to some photo editing and then submit them along with my registration for the GBWC competition. So I won't be spray painting any new kit anytime soon as I need to recover my financial back first lol.. But I did had plans to spray paint my next kit, which is Hi-Nu Ver Ka and it's HWS. I have the kits, but not enough spray paint right now. So have to wait lol...

Anyway, that's all for this month, I will be back to work and studying again lol..

[Completed][RG] MS-06S Zaku II Ver. Gundam Docks at Singapore - [Updated 25th June 2015]

This is another exclusive kit that I bought alongside with the SG50 kit at Takashimaya Shopping Center. They also sell the RG RX-78-2 Gundam exclusive but since I already had the SG50 Gundam, I will get the Zaku instead, and honestly I like these Zaku designs more than the Gundam lol... This kit is pretty much the same as the normal RG green Zaku, except that it has an additional base and special decals just for the Gundam Docks event lol...

[Completed][HG] RX-78-2 Gundam Ver.SG50 Exclusive - [Updated 16th June 2015]

To commemorate SG50, Gunpla Mechanic Designer Kunio Okawara designed this kit which also happens to be on sale during the Gundam Docks @ SG event for this month of June. This was his message below,

~A tribute to Singapore~

It is such an honor to be able to design this special Gundam in celebration of Singapore's 50th anniversary. This design is inspired by the red and white colours of Singapore's national flag, and my impressions toward the beauty and cleanliness of the country.

I hope everyone likes this,
and it would be my great pleasure.

Gundam Docks at Singapore 2015 (Day 1)

Another Gunpla event at Takashimaya! =D This time it's special, because the Gunpla mechanics designer Kunio Okawara, designed the RX-78 Gundam SG50 version to commemorate to Singapore's 50 years of nation building!

I will be taking more photos on another day, and see if I can get anything else within my limited budget lol..

[Completed][PG] RX-0 Unicorn Gundam Full Armor Parts Exclusive - [Updated 4th June 2015]

My PG Unicorn's Full Armor Parts has finally arrived! Originally an idea for my GBWC entry, now I just build it casually for my other Unicorn which I did not post up (won't be posting them up anyway lol...) So this kit consist of an additional Hyper Bazooka, 2 Shields, 4 Gattling Beam Guns, couple of missile packs and Grenade Launchers, and finally the huge propellant tanks lol... I will be planning to build the Shields, Bazooka and Gattling Guns last as everyone by now was familar with them, I just work on the on the new stuffs first lol...

Also a huge sheet of water decal sheet for this kit. I might really take some time to do that, thank goodness I did not apply any of the normal decals from my Unicorn kit lol...

[Completed][HG] Petitgguy Burning Red, Lightning Blue, Winning Yellow & Future Pink - [Updated 1st June 2015]

These cute little bears are so cute that I had to get them as a set. They are sold separately however but it's only fitting to get them as a set lol... Also each of them have a small puzzle piece stand and stickers for their eyes and nose. Bandai gave like three pairs of eyes and 4 noses in each of them, probably is to let you have more spare stickers of those lol...

These Petitgguys can be seen during the ending credits of Gundam Build Fighters Try Season 2 (second half onwards of the episodes I think). Their names are 'Burning Red', 'Lightning Blue', ' Winning Yellow' and 'Future Pink'. They are fast to build, so I probably do one per day lol... Overall, they are so cute...!!!

May Blog Updates!

Finally some free time to post up some updates lol... As usual I'm busy with work, exams are over and I'm currently volunteering for the marching contingent training for National Day Parade which I would be occupied for all the Saturdays till 9th August 2015. Anyway, personal life aside, as you know it I had just completed applying the decals for my PG Unicorn Full Armor parts kit and will be in the midst of applying top coating. I would be using the gloss coat this time round for this as I had lots of those that I had not use so I might as well use it all up. Probably I could able to finish it by this Sunday and do the assembly next week or something.

Next, it's been quite a long time since I had any hauls from HLJ lol.. this month I got some sizable stuffs, two kits for my DMS project, and 4 HG kits. Here they are lol...

Yup.. these four cute little bears and those two DMS project kits lol.. I also gotten myself another RG kit from HAW which is this,

I always wanted to get it, but it's either not enough budget or no stock lol.. But I managed to get it at discounted price so it's all good lol... And up next on the next future release I'm waiting for this,

MGGundam Fenice Rinascita kit from Gundam Build Fighters releasing next month in June 2015 lol.. There's also another kit also from GBF (Season 2) is the MG Amazing Red Warrior. No box art yet as it was only being recently revealed, but I will wait and see on that lol.. And last but not least, a Metal Build Strike Freedom has been announced! I was excited about this one as in my previous post (probably somewhere in some groups) I mentioned that it would be great for Bandai to make a Metal Build SF to go along with it's Metal Build Destiny. Another great battle scene lol... Alright that's enough of all news and stuffs and back to my updates lol..

Lastly for my DMS project, I would be starting work on the Sinanju first, and this would be my competition entry for GBWC 2015. And the name for it? I will update my old post which I believe it has already been buried deep in my bunch of old posts lol.. As I said probably a few times already, I'm entering the competition just to get some exposure, experience and the fun of it. I'm not really serious about winning but still will put in lots of effort in my build no matter what. Winning or losing to me is just secondary objective. If I really win, well good for me lol.. If not, better luck next time lol..

That's all for my updates! I will update again next month, hopefully earlier or again later as always lol...

[Completed][MG] PPGN-001 Gundam Exia Dark Matter PPSE Works Custom Made MS [Updated 8th May 2015]

Finally I gotten this kit... You could say this was the originator of my DMS project, but I wanted to do a Holy version of this kit, but that would be another story some time in future lol..

Build by the great Meijin Kawaguchi (modified by PPSE works) from Gundam Build Fighters anime series, I really like the looks of this kit and it's backpack unit which is a bird-like weapon lol...

April Updates!

1 month passed by so fast, and I once again apologise for my late updating, again =.='''

Anyway, some updates. As you have seen my previous post that I did a custom paint job on SD Winning Gundam as part of the DMS project. Apart that I temporary break away from the MG kits that I usually do my paint job on, this one is to put my painting skills on a crash test (very quick test) and I also introduced the use of masking tape to paint certain parts a different color on the same piece. While the outcome for my first try is not so bad, I think I might have made certain pieces sharper points or some minor out of range due to my poor masking technique. Anyway, I had fun learning new stuffs, so I would try to work on that when I had the chance.

As I'm still busy with my studies (exams is coming), my next upcoming DMS project would involves the Hi-Nu and it's HWS pack. More money to spent on paints again lol... and as for my GBWC entry, I decided to change my entry kit to one of my DMS project kit as my competition entry as it's more safer than my initial kit (Too many experimental stuffs going on in that kit) but not to worry, the materials that I bought previously will still be used. And this DMS project kit involves another Emperor. I did said in my previous post that my DMS project will have two Emperors right? lol...

Anyway, I'm still waiting for the Puchigguy to be release in HLJ, and I finally made the decision to pre-order the PG Unicorn FA expansion. This one's going to be massive lol...

That's about it for this month. I will update again next month =)

This is the first time for me to introduce a SD kit into my project to work on, a break away from my MG kit-only rule, and I was hoping to find some inspirations and ideas for my GBWC kit through this.

List of Tamiya Spray Paint used:
- TS-06 Matt Black (For main armor parts)
- TS-85 Bright Mica Red (For selected armor parts)
- TS-38 Gun Metal (For Darkened Internal Frame, certain parts)

March Updates

Sorry for the late updates once again. I had been busy with my work and studies as always. But this month or rather this week, Singapore is mourning over the passing of our founding father Lee Kuan Yew. Although I had never met him in person, but through reading his books I felt like I had met him up close. I had went to Parliament House to paid my last respect to the great leader on the first day of the Lying in State which is on Wednesday. I will not emphasis on his achievements and visions on here again as the local news media had been talking about it for this entire week. But nonetheless, a salute to him from me, and from Sazabi.

Ok back to the main topic. As I had mentioned previously, my kit for my GBWC entry is still in progress but has been slowed due to shortage of spray paints (due to my budget restrains). But during this shortage season, I had gathered enough crafting materials to experiment on certain parts, like a stand to make certain parts as though they were flying, and scratch build a few items as well. Honestly speaking I had no experience in scratch building stuffs, so bear with me while I'm figuring this out myself through tutorials and advice lol...

Lastly, as most people would have know, that Bandai is now producing MG Wing Fenice Rinascita, the next master grade kit after Exia Dark Matter for GBF series. I might be getting this alongside with Exia Dark Matter (I had it originally, but I sold it to my friend who wanted it more).

Links from Gundam Guy blog post

Also these 4 cute Puchigguys would be coming out in May 2015 as well. It is fitting to buy all 4 of them as a set rather than buying one by one. Yes, they were sold separately at 500 Yen (at HLJ).

Link from Gundam Guy blog post

That's all for this month's updates. Will be giving some updates again next month =)
