It's 5am local time. About time to go to the airport. Finally, I have the chance to go Hong Kong to experience the competition process. Chances like these are few and far in between, so I will treasure this trip. I am a bit worried though leaving my wife and the two children. But this is one I can't pass. And whenever I leave Singapore, it always feels like I leave my mom once more.
After three years, the void left by her is still there and will never be filled. I miss her very much still and I do shed a tear or two sometimes. Well, life goes on and looking forward is the only thing I can do. And looking forward is what I will do for this Hong Kong trip!
To my wife, thanks for your support and I love you! (hope you read this post)
And to the rest of you, Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
"And ma, I love you too".

This Saturday I am flying off to Hong Kong for the Bandai Model Kits World Cup finals. So everything will be put on hold at the moment. I need to repair the base for the Trinity and also pack them to be hand carried up the plane. This is going to be a nightmare! The base is so heavy and at 38cm by 50cm, I kinda of worried about transporting it.
Well, after I come back, I have a lot of work cut out for me:-
- Need to finish up the White Tiger (once and for all)
- I need to do a little maintenance base for the Formania Sazabi, for a customer
- A write out on how I grafted to backpacks of the Sinanju FWS
- Do a reviews on an Airbrush and several useful tools
That is quite a bit to be frank. And I will also start work on the 1/144 Kshatriya for the same customer. I am still at the conceptual stage. His requirements are simple. NO OOB! lol.... That a challenge I will certainly take!

Just a quick review on this one. I picked it up from HAG. I have always been a fan of the Digimon since young. And when Bandai announced this new line, I was thrilled. I thought if they are releasing this, it should be in safe hands. I am not disappointed at all....

After the competition, I need to relax and look for something to build. Thanks to Koba 215 for reminding me that I still have this build to finish. I took it out of the box last night and gave it thorough inspection. There are some minor corrections to be done and painting will start after that. Stay tuned...

I just came back from the local BMKWC 2010 at Takashimaya, Orchard. I saw quite a few interesting entries and this year got to be the year of the Perfect Grades! I counted 6 PG entries, hardworking lads they are. Being the first Bandai Model Kit Worldcup, I expected everyone to really go for it. And judging from what I have seen, it is likely the case. Thanks to the organizers, the submission process was smooth and the showcases are very pretty good with ample lighting.Every entries can be viewed clearly.
For me, I am involved in the Group instead of the Open category. As I was given a chance to work with Leon on a group entry, I agreed immediately. I will explain our group build in a later post and with better pictures. This one was a bit rush and I did not take any decent photos at home (I was still painting some parts two hours before submission).
Well, this is our entry for BMKWC titled "Trinity".
