About

I’m currently working in Japan. Lived in Chiba Prefecture for just over a year and was then thrown across the country to Fukuoka Prefecture. While I’m somewhat close to the “mecca of geek culture”, I have left much of my modeling hobby back home.

This blog was created to allow me to share my interests with readers. You will find that due to the nature of the content here, my frequency of updating is not as high as other more avid bloggers. There are quiet times but I try to post regularly as far as possible.

Nevertheless I am honoured to have you, the reader, for stopping by. Thank you!

If you wish to have me link to your blog, feel free to leave a message.

  1. hello there,
    really impressed by your work on gunpla
    i am a beginner modeler and not really good at it
    i saw from some posts that ur from SG and would like to know where you get your supplies from
    Thanx

    1. Welcome to my blog! 🙂 And thanks!

      I usually get supplies from the shops (Hobby Art Gallery & M Workshop) in Sunshine Plaza. It’s a one-stop location for pretty much everything I need. You may also be interested in Hobby Point which has branches in Tiong Bahru Plaza and Suntec City.

      1. Thanx for the quick reply
        i stay in the east, so i guess the nearest one is hobby point in century square.
        i wonder, what are the price differences between hobby point and HAG?
        Btw, i am making 1/100 00raiser and would like to know how you got the nice green color on the clear parts at the joints?

  2. Hi, I came across your site and wasn’t able to get an email address to contact you. Would you please consider adding a link to my website on your page. Please email me back and we’ll talk about it.

    Thanks!

  3. hi,

    very good work seen from your gallery on your work and informative on the modifcation techniques, thanks for posting them up. me too polishing my skill on gundam building..btw, for those modification, do you plan even before you build it? btw for the led, do you have the drawing on the connection? how to wire to the battery? do you use battery or cells?

    1. Thanks! I don’t do mods that much so I’m not very good at them.

      For planning, I usually have in mind what the end result should be and along the way if there are any problems then I’ll work around them. Sometimes if I can’t find a way and I have to give up I’ll try to mend everything to how they were originally.

      Since I paint my models I do all the mods before I finish assembling and painting them. That way I can fix any imperfections or damage easily.

      About the LED wiring, for simple things like light-up eyes you can play around with the connections since it’s quite straightforward. All I have is school-level physics knowledge and it’s enough to get by for simple jobs like these. If I decide to have the power supply inside the model itself then I will use button cells since they are the smallest.

      Have fun! 🙂

  4. Hellooo. I was just curious, I was looking at your light “how-to” and it was very informative. One question though, can you hook up two LEDs with one battery and one resistor? I was thinking about putting a light in the head and chest of a MG Wing Gundam and this seems like it would be the easiest choice. But fitting 2 separate batteries and resistors inside the kit seems like it would increase the difficulty tenfold. Thanks in advanced! Great work on your kits!

  5. I am very new to 1:6 scale figures but my real interest in the subject stems from me wanting to create an actual figurine based on a design I’ve had. Would you be able to link me with anyone who could cast a doll head – with hair – based on my design. I can provide full 3D renderings. Please email me if you are able to help. Thanks.

    1. If you’re referring to doll heads with rooted doll hair, I’m afraid I can’t help you as I’ve only bought retail heads that have been painted by other people. Otherwise, you could try a 3D printing service and use a doll wig, but it probably won’t look as good.

    2. curious, may i ask what kind of figurine is that? doll with hair required a different modelling skill which is different from plastic modeling. can you post the 3d face of the figurine? just for my curiosity.

      as what evolution has mentioned, a 3d printing will help especially you have the 3d rendering which can breakdown in x, y and z coordinates. if you need the hair, guess you have to do some implanting..

      my own work in clay..
