Zhao Yun FINAL!!

That's right, it's finally finish. :)
Took a while for a small BB Gundam model haha.

All done without the horse.

Zhao Yun on the horse. Blue + Red spear gattai. :D

All 3 BB Gundams I've done so far:

Rikuson Z Plus
Zhao Yun Gundam Heisen
Bacho Blue Destiny

As for the closing note.... My gold Gundam Marker has ran out :( but hopefully I'd be able to get one seperately from the Gundam Sangoku Marker Set.

Ans also, I finally got my airbrush kit but I'm still waiting for the mini water filter that attaches directly to the airbrush as it seems water is coming from the air compressor which messes up the colour.

The next kit I'm going to do is either the MG Strike Noir or the Kotobukiya Armored Core Rosenthal.... we'll see. :)

Zhao Yun #06

It's finally done. Well, except the horse.

While taking a pic, I decided to compare the quality of the Satio and the Canon 450D DSLR camera.

This was taken with the Satio phone camera.

This was taken with the Canon 450D. Settings on automatic & AF.

And this again with the Canon. This time, the setting is for incandescent lighting and on MF.

Now, I'm not a professional photographer but I do care about quality. :)
As you can probably notice, the Satio one is brighter and I suppose that's because the camera(flash) is only about ~12cm away from the figure.

Zhao Yun #05

Small update

Armours are finally done and on the model now. I'm nearly done with the weapons as well and after that I'm going to do the horsey that came with it. :)

It was a bit hard to balance the colour of the Gundam Markers as you can see on the blue part.

Kotobukiya Rosenthal CR-HOGIRE Noblesse Oblige (UPDATE)

Alright... something I always wanted to try out.

These Armored Core models from Kotobukiya always impresses me whenever I see one. So I decided to look and got one from ebay. The seller I got it from was very friendly and the kit was/is decently priced. As the title mentioned, I got the Noblesse Oblige version which looks far cooler than the regular Rosenthal kit.

And just FYI, I absolutely have not much info/idea about Armored Core series except that it is from a videogame and I've never played it. :)

Here are 2 pics from the kit, courtesy of Hobby Search(

Update 04/11/09: Finally received the kit. :) It only took 3 days from Hong Kong to London UK via EMS, pretty cool stuff.
