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...
I have always been interested in what my neighbours are doing for GBWC. Since geographically, they are the closet to us and we have many things in common. And not to mention that I'm half a Malaysian since my mum was from there.
Not contented with just pictures online, a bunch of modeling buddies and me will make yearly trips to Malaysia to see the entries live. Nothing beats seeing the masterpieces in person!
Have you ever wondered about why you like going to a model shop even if you have nothing really to buy? Whether it's HAG, HAW or somewhere in Japan, Hongkong, Malaysia, Philippines, whatever. Whether you realise it or not, one big reason is probably the display. Think about it. It has always been about the display, from the day you fell in love with the hobby.
