WIP: HG 00 Raiser Sky ANA Project Part 2

December 26, 10:44am, no sunshine... Shoot... Can't paint the Clear pieces for the GN Condensers. I settled for the legs and built them. Just like with the HG RX-0 Unicorn ANA kit, Bandai's efforts in terms of hiding/minimizing nubs are evident. Although some can't be avoided, I still think Bandai made a superb job.

Built the legs, waist and applied the ANA decals, check them out:

Gundam 00 kits have superb articulation thanks to simple parts like the waist. The 00 Raiser for example do not have skirt parts which could hamper thigh articulation, like Seed kits.
Gotta love the decals. Its the decals and paintjob that makes ANA kits really cool.

Christmas WIP: HG 00 Raiser Sky ANA Project

Merry Christmas Gunpla fanatics! I'm sure most of you now have their respective Christmas hauls with them. Exactly 1h 9mins from December 25, I decided to build my 2nd HG ANA kit. My wish came true when I got this guy, I have the RX, 00 Raiser and RX-0 now in my possession. Although i'm still thinking hard if I want to get the HG RX-78 ANA for the sake of uniformity (1/144 scale).

Some photos:

Hopefully, I can finish this before Monday. Enjoy the Noche Buena everyone! :)

November Hauls!

Busy and stressed for the past couple of days. Prolly because of the Christmas season? Regardless of what the occassion is: collectors like me would always find time and funds to secure their desired items (now that Christmas Bonus is out and teasing me like a devil haha!).

I'm also worried and scared. The photo below is a proof that i've extended my interests beyond Gunpla, which means extra strain to my finances. Here are my hauls for the month of November:

- Senhime (Hyakka Ryouran) Queen's Gate MegaHouse Limited
- MG White Unicorn Zeta Karaba Limited
- RG Freedom Gundam
- Revoltech WarMachine

MG Full Armor Unicorn - Runners

Images of Runners (for the MG Unicorn Full Armor kit) from both GundamGuy and GunJap came out of nowhere. And guess what?
Image from GunJap's blog
Yes you're right, THREE RUNNERS for the Gatling Gun. Darn you Bandai, the value of the Gatling Guns are now down the drain because of this. People like me who searched high and low for the Gatling Guns can only bury their faces on their hands. Congratulations to those who do not have these yet, now's your chance...

More photos from GundamGuy and GunJap!

November Hauls and Expansion

My trip to Japan was tiring. but rewarding if I may add. Made negotiations and such so that I may expand my inventory. Recently included Revoltechs and RG to my arsenal with more on the way (hello Excel).

I do hope that I would receive the same attention I had with my MG line-up for the Revo's and RG's!

Boxes arrived today and here's what I've got so far:

Again, my sincerest thanks for your trust, patience and continued patronage!
