well for me the issue is bloody expensive ticket!
I mean I went there close to 4:40pm and still have to pay $110 for entire family to get in so they could see daddy's kits before I collected them. I couldn't get in by myself as that wouldn't be fair for the kids. But once inside I thought whole show was bit too much for 4 yo and 8yo, especially to our little one who was scared by all those people dressed up strangely...
They should allow the entrance who does not wish to attend SMASH to come by after the show is closed - say 5:30pm - and collect their kits.
Now I'm banned from entering by missus. As far as she concerned I blew the nice family dinner out for 15min walk around... @__@
by the way no I couldn't be there early because ouir kids still have the school swiiming team training in the morning as well as tuition in the afternoon. :(
(And while grabbing something to bite near by with family in tow someone walking by knocked the tray from the pram breaking bits and pieces from kits...)


Noless can you confirm? Last year your Valkyrie was a display piece only, not an entry, correct?

In any case I would love to see your EVA dio on display for a bit of diversity DJ898 :)

Oh well...
In that case I will just put a couple for display only if I don't get time to tidy up two pieces I'm working on and OFF... :(

paid in reading from beginning.
Thought the entry is only for Gundam kit but it seems any Bandai kits are allowed which gives me an back up plan in case I'm unable to finish before Friday this week. :p

have you heard the wet sanding?
take the find grit sand paper - in small size for convenience - and dip into water and sand away in circular motion.
ever watched Karate Kid?  you will recall Left, Right, Left, Right as instructed by sensei. :p
that's what I'm talking bout - with one arm of coz.

I also got the e-mail except it was sitting in my JUNK folder... heh

you could always use the black primer so it'd be easy to spot any uneven area. ^ ^

I comepletely forgot about this one till someone called me on my mobile on last weekend.
I was out and about and due to the background noise couldn't work out what it was about.
The same guy called me again tonight and after I checked the web site I remembered I entered for the following year last year when I couldn't make to the show.

Again due to the workload and family life I haven't finished the current project well over 10 months now. Guess I may bring some of old works after dusting and all... ^ ^

Will see how it goes as I will have to travel from work to venue on Friday and that means well over an hour of driving as I work near the airport... -,,-


@Sonar: Thanks mate. Love the orange on the LA, which unfortunately I did not have. His mod is superb!

Believe it or not that orange is straight out of Mr.Color Acrylic paint tub. =D
Was going to mix but the color was good enough so decided to air brush straight from the bottle.

By the way MG version looks great.

also as the resin kit is more painting intensive you might want to find out what methods out there to make it easy for painting/masking/etc. there are method in which one use the tiny magnet to bond two parts after completion or joint modification to click-in assembly since the resin kits tend to have less mobility compared to injection kits...

for me I have no problem with those questions.
I remember how I felt first time I tackled the resin kits - old hand down kit with missing instruction sheet. @__@

maybe this will show you what I normally do with the resin kit.
basically you connect two parts using the pin in between.

about how to do this please try google ^ ^

and here's another shot of resin conversion which uses the injection plastic kit as the base.

B-Club released several resin conversion kits for both v1.0, 1.5 as well as OYW.
I used to collect those kits whenever I saw on my trip to Tokyo/Osaka but nowadays have no time...

I made the 1.5 conversion kit few years back and you can read about it on my blog.

From memory Ako hobby had a couple that based off the oyw frame. His kits are either resin or plastic and the fit is resonable to good from what I've seen.

The Powered GM  and GM Spartan injection kits were famous for wrong reason though... -__-;

someone do this pose in gunpla?! ^ ^
sadly I have no time at all nowadays...

why! why? why!

I get the alligator clips from Jaycar shop and simply pull out the wire and pop in the stick before cramping with the long nose plier...

Engineering Corps / Re: Acrylic vs. spray paint
« on: February 28, 2012, 01:26:43 PM »
using the spray can it will be expensive option since you will be wasting a lot of paint while spray painting - try google how to spray paint and you will know what I mean. =D

saying that you can achieve reasonable result using the cans...
here's one just after spray painting but before weathering...

this looks x1000 better than HGUC. ^ ^

by the way any reason why the side skirts hanging higher than the front skirts?
Was there any issue fitting those? Or this is to give the space for waist joint movement?
