New Gunpla Projects

It’s been a while since I’ve built or played anything on camera and there are several reasons for it, one of them being some changes that I’m making in my life that are an ongoing process and often leave me without enough time to broadcast or simply too exhausted to do so, but I’ll go over those some other day.

But another reason for the lack of broadcasting or even recording builds is the wait for certain models to arrive and a hell of a lot of paints. One of the issues I have with Gunpla as a hobby is that paints come in minuscule bottles of 10ml, meaning that if I want to fill a large side-feed bottle for my airbrush, to have enough paint for a complete large model, it’s going to take at least 3 or 4 of these tiny paint products to do so. It’s slightly infuriating and I wish larger versions were more readily available (and I’ve seen, at least on GundamInfo videos on YouTube, Meijin Kawaguchi use larger bottles) from most shops but I’ve been unable to find any.

But once I’ve acquired everything I need these will be the projects I’ll be focusing on, either privately or on camera: Continue reading New Gunpla Projects

Mobile Suit Gundam: My Favourites! – Part 1

A couple of weeks ago I spoke about my first Gunpla build and a week later I wrote a primer about it on GeekOut South-West. In the coming weeks not only will I build more models, possibly record or broadcast the process, but also write another “primer” but this one on the overall Gundam franchise.

With that in mind I thought it would be great if I spoke to you about my favourite Gundam series/movies/OVAs. To date, I have watched most if not all the series in the franchise, from the Universal Century ones to even the Gundam Build Fighters series, the one that inspired me to get into Gunpla in the first place.

Let’s get to it. I’ll keep the descriptions as short as possible, as I don’t want to spoil too much!

There is no order in these recommendations. This is not a top 5 or something like that. Also, assume that any sequel is worth watching as well: Continue reading Mobile Suit Gundam: My Favourites! – Part 1
