1/144 ヴァルヴレイヴⅠ火人 Valvrave I Hito

革命機ヴァルヴレイヴ, or Valvrave the Liberator, was a series that I was very interested and had high expectations for during 2013. Browsing through the usual website I utilize for the latest hobby news, I saw the prototype for this “Valvrave”. It looked amazing. That very moment I knew I had to watch the show. After all, Bandai was making plastic models for a series that was neither Gundam or Macross. The highly anticipated first episode aired, and it did not disappoint. In fact, the entire first season did not disappoint. It is no exaggeration to say that it was on my list of favorites. …However, the second season… somehow failed to answer any of the mysteries that the first season set up and instead introduced confusion. Not only that, but what was most unacceptable for me was the slaughter fest throughout the second season.

Regardless of the anime, the mecha itself, the Valvrave, is an awesome design. For this post, let’s take a look at my build of the 1/144 Valvrave I Hito model from Bandai.

HG Gundam Exia Renewal (2015)

During my childhood, I have built some Gundam models to play with on a few rare occasions. However, the series Gundam 00 revolutionized a number of things in my life. For one, it is the first Gundam series I ever watched every episode of, from start to finish. It made me a Gundam fan, got me into other anime, and of course, steered me into being a modeler. The HG Gundam Exia was the first model for me to go beyond a straight build. Looking up info on the internet, I painted, panel-lined, and even attempted modifications. That was over 6 years ago, using improper and makeshift supplies. I am still not a pro, but I have came a long way since then. Taking the very same HG Gundam Exia, I redid every piece. Here it is, my renewed HG Gundam Exia.

HG ブレイヴ [指揮官用試験機] Brave [Commander Test Type] WIP


画像やリンクをクリック↕ Click the image or link.
As I was wondering through some stores in Japan, I saw this HG Brave Commander Test Type on sale for about ¥1000. Since it normally retails for about ¥1700, I decided to buy it. I knew that I wanted to buy some gunpla in Japan, but I regret not holding in my temptation to build it here. As a result, I spent money on tools, some of which I cannot even bring back. Alas, I did built it while I’m here, so here is its WIP (work-in-progress).

アクションベース2 Action Base 2

I bought an Action Base 2 for my gunpla a while ago, but I never got to build it up. When I was returning back to my dorm from Thanksgiving break, I took it with me and finished it by the end of the week.

First, I roughly cut out the parts for the connector. Continue Reading!

M.S.G ビーストソード レビュー Beast Sword Review

3月に買ったのM.S.G ウェポンユニット:ビーストソードのレビューです。

This is a review of the M.S.G Weapon Unit: Beast Sword, which I had bought back in March. I have never bought any M.S.G Weapon Units nor any kits from Kotobukiya before, but since it was pretty cheap (¥420), I decided to try it out.

小さなプラ袋、横は11cm、縦は20cm。組み立ての説明は裏にあります。パーツは簡単なので、説明を読めなくても組み立てられます。

A very small package of only 11cm in width and 20cm in length. Instructions are printed single-sided on the back of a cardboard insert. It is pretty self-explanatory even without the instructions.

1/100 オーバーフラッグ OverFlag WIP 6 – [Legs]

Please forgive me as these photos were taken quite hastily. After adjusting the arms on the previous WIP, I worked on the right leg which was a real pain, especially the foot. Finally I have finished it! Do note that some of these changes may be a bit hard to see. Continue Reading

1/100 オーバーフラッグ OverFlag WIP 5 – [Arms]

次の改造するパーツは足と言ったけど、随分難しいから、少しずつ完成させながら、腕をまた改造してみた。

Although I said that I was going to work on the legs next, it is pretty hard and it is taking me forever to finish. So while I am slowly working on the legs, I decided to revisit the arms again for some adjustments.

まずは肩を体に近づける。そのために新しいジョイントを作らないといけない。使ったものはポリキャップと接着剤と爪楊枝。上の画像で、左のは元のジョイント、右のは作ったジョイント。

First, I wanted to make the shoulders more compact and closer to the body. To do so, I needed to make a new shoulder joint. With just about no other resources to use, I made the new joint out of a spare polycap and toothpicks thickened with glue.

1/100 オーバーフラッグ OverFlag WIP 4 – [Backpack]

数ヶ月前、オーバーフラッグのウィングをちょっと改造した。だけどあんまり満足していないので、最近また改造した。

During 1/100 OverFlag’s WIP 2, I briefly worked on OverFlag’s backback unit. But I was not satisfied. Just flipping parts upside down and switching it to the other side doesn’t seem creative, plus I didn’t like how tiny the wings were. So recently I spent a lot of time redesigning the backpack unit.

1/100 オーバーフラッグ OverFlag WIP 3 – [Waist + Arms]

It has been a really long time since the previous WIP for OverFlag, about half a year ago in September. For a long time I didn’t work on him at all until recently, when my plamo urges seem to have finally kicked in. ^ ^;

Not too much major changes. 1st, the shoulders as well as the body is refined. Read more of this post

1/100 ガンダムデュナメス Gundam Dynames

Hey all! Re-posting this from my 1st post on figure.fm. These photos were taken over a year ago, before I owned my DSLR. I took these shots with my friend’s parents’ equipments, who used to be professional photographers.

Front shot

They set the settings, but all of the posing & shots were taken by me, it was my 1st time handling a DSLR. Their settings were really amazing, they even made Dynames’s green color look better than it is. ^ ^; Read more of this post
