I have been working on the PG Strike for the past few weeks but finally hit a wall. I'm stuck on the Shoulder armors of the Sword Strike. Can't seem to get the right details on it. Since the add on is a High Grade version, a lot of work need to be done to "upgrade" it to Perfect Grade design.

I'm not really a fan of the Build Fighters series. Still, there are some interesting Gundams in it. Well, the first that caught my attention is the Sengoku Astray. There is this thing about Samurais and the Japanese katana that really intrigues me. Samurais are way too cool man.

So Waylander and Toymaker have finally decide to organize a Group Build. And we named it "Poisonmonkeys Jesta Group Build".
The first question that comes to your mind is probably, "Why Jesta?" And I say, "Why not?" We all know Jestas are no frills, simple but effective units on the battlefield. But they are still, cannon fodders.
So, what if I give you the opportunity to transform the humble Jesta into a hero suit? Or turn it into the Antagonist, like Tallgeese, will you take it?
Basically, we want participants to go crazy for this group build. We want souped-up units. We want radical concepts. We want outrageous builds. So how is one going to approach this? Simple, think out of the box. Throw away the original concepts and perceptions of the Jesta and revolutionize it. That's the plan.
So yesterday was the meet. And was I disappointed? I got to be kidding if I say yes. Because, it's by far the most successful and exciting Group Build we organized. The lads were fantastic, lending their full support in the form of fantastic builds. Well, we get to that later...

When I saw this Jesta, I knew I had to write a post about it. Because this fellow has come a long way. In a matter of few years, he has established himself as one of the top gunpla modelers here.
And so we organized a Jesta Build Group because we love this fellow. One of the most impressive cannon fodder around! LOL.. And knowing Waylander, his Jesta will be out of the world. And it is.

As a hobbyist, I don't usually buy finished products especially those that I can modify and paint them myself. The reason is simple. Why would I buy something off the shelf when I can make it better and unique? Well, Bandai's Metal Build line is making me eat my words. Their range of Metal Builds are so impressive even I have to throw money at them.

My wife has been asking me to build her a Bearguy ever since the first one was released. I have been putting it off citing reasons like "competitions around the corner", "Group Builds" etc. Well, last Christmas, I finally decided to give her something I made. Rather than buying something off the shelf.
However, I did not get down to finishing it before Christmas. Was feeling a bit bad about myself. So I stayed up the whole night just to finish it. Mission accomplished for me!

First of foremost, I want to wish all readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
And for me, Christmas came early this year. As most of you may know by now, I'm a big fan of the Sazabi. I remember using the old Master Grade version of it for my first few modification/kitbashes, Raven and Lonewolf. Both looked damn crappy right now, LOL. Well, you can imagine I was over the moon when Bandai first announced Sazabi Version Ka. Hey! I waited 13 long years for it!

The moment I see this, I know I have to buy it and in bulk too. Why? Because I'm a fan of maintenance bases and pods like these are hard to come by irregardless of their scales. So the moment it was up for sale, I grabbed a couple of boxes and went straight home to assemble it.

I have been pondering whether to get one of these Metal Builds for the longest time. The main reason being why would I get one if I can just buy a Master Grade and paint it? And you can get a Perfect Grade Gundam with that kind of pricing.
Well, I decided to take the plunge today and boy, was I in for a surprise....

It has been some time since I showcase a fellow modeler's work. Well, the latest work by our Thai counterpart, nuNUnu certainly caught my attention. It was entered in Thailand GBWC 2013 and to my astonishment, was not among the winners. Seriously, this is not even worth a mention!? There are thousand and one questions in my head and I have no answers for them, a different colour scheme perhaps? A more detail maintenance base maybe? To tell you the truth, you can just slip in an acrylic base and I swear this entry is still a top 3 contender. I think Waylander's blogpost sums everything up for me. Sheez...
