Gaplant WIP 1

The two GMs have been built and the command type has surprisingly good legs. I've revised the diorama and decided to add a Gaplant. I bought it at Imperial Hobby this weekend while I was putting my Zaku III in the display case. I was surprised with a huge crowd of people and giant signs that said "25th Anniversary". Surely enough, there was a 25% off everything sale so I decided to get something I've been thinking about for a while. Thus I revised my diorama plans with this kit.

Hobby Shops in Sapporo

While I was staying in Sapporo, I did go around looking for models. I obtained my HGUC GM and GM Command Space Type from Yodobashi Camera. The store is located right next to the main transit station "Sapporo Station". This station is a terminal for the subway and the train systems and is basically considered the centre of the city. Stupid me didn't take pictures of the inside of the store, so I will try to explain it to the best of my ability.

Zaku III Photoshoot

Finally got the supplies to make the photoshoot. This is my first time trying this so the images aren't exactly as professional as other modelers, but I'll get there.

Next Project

My next project is going to hopefully be a diorama featuring the HGUC GM Command Space Type and the HGUC GM. It's going to be based on one of the scenes in the Gundam Senki 0081 OVA. With all the resupply cables still attached to the units after the ship was destroyed and the two half-destroyed mobile suits holding hands. For those who have never seen the OVA, it can be found here.

Site Update

A new banner for the site that looks 10x less crappy. I've added a link to the right that links to Vanpla, the model group that I'm a part of. If you live in Vancouver or even the rest of Canada, please have a look. It always makes me happy to be able to meet other Canadian modelers. I've also added a follow button as well as the ability to reply to comments(not that anyone comments here anyways >___>)

Back Home

Hello, I just got back home here in Vancouver. Having 2 days without sleep because of travel really put a lot of stress on me. To be truthful, I didn't want to come home at all. I wished I could stay in Japan just a little longer. Imagine my surprise when I came home after 2 months of heaven to the image above....

 I didn't start screaming until after my dad left for work. >__>

Anyways, I'm still suffering from some horrible jet lag. In fact, I just woke up and it's 7pm.
I've been prepping up some supplies so I can finally do the Zaku's photoshoot. I will continue to make a few more posts about my exchange to Japan with more details for those who wish to one day go.
