Noblesse Oblige continuation + PG RX-78-2

That's right... I finally got up and looked for the missing piece from the Armored Core plamo. I kinda misplaced the construction manual for it but I luckily found it.

Also, I got a new plamo to work on... probably after I finish the Noblesse Oblige or maybe in-between. I recently bought a Perfect Grade Gundam RX-78-2 "30th Anniversary Model Extra Finish Version".

Bought it from a good ebayer in Japan at a decent price. Thanks to him again.
Highly doubt I will do any painting on this one. The runners are just like the MG Shin Musha "Sengoku no Jin" I did, molded in gloss colours. Not sure how I'll do the panel lining yet though.

Bacho Blue Destiny Gundam #06 FINAL

And so I finally finished reworking Bacho Blue. It took a while and I'm quite impressed with what I did to it. I could've posted an update yesterday but you know. :)

Here's the pic I took yesterday when I've done putting the gold colour on the sword.

And here's the finished, painted Bacho Blue and the older picture for comparison.

I used my sister's DSLR camera so you'll see some difference in quality.

And that's it. I don't think I'll be able to continue with my Noblesse Oblige plamo for some time as I have mentioned before, there's one piece of plastic missing and I haven't really searched for it yet. I might start with the MG Gundam Noir though.... we'll see. :)

Bacho Blue Destiny Gundam #05

I felt like continuing it so I did. :)

The first white coating actually looked quite good but since I have another type of white, I wanted to try it out. It's pearlized white so it looked more glossy... I quite like it though but it's a tad bit dark. Next time I'll mix it with the white coating I have.

Not sure if you can notice the colour but it has definitely changed. The other 2 pics that I took looked quite bad so I wont put it here.

As usual, if I don't get lazy tomorrow, I might be able to finally finish it. Otherwise, give it 2-3 more days. :)


Just started watching a new anime series. It's called "Nyan Koi".

Here's a summary taken from ANN: Junpei Kōsaka is a second-year high school student who despises cats and has an allergy to them. It just so happens that his high school crush is Kaede Mizuno, a girl who adores cats. One day, while walking home from school, Junpei kicks an empty can and unfortunately beans the local neko-jizō-sama (guardian deity of cats). He finds he can now understand what cats are saying, including his family's own ill-tempered cat, Nyamusasu. However, if he does not grant 100 wishes from cats, he will turn into cat 

Love it, watch it. :)

I was going to continue colouring Bacho Blue but it was raining pretty hard yesterday when I came, I just didn't feel like doing anything at all... but I'll continue it today and hopefully finish it by tomorrow or the next day. If I don't get lazy, I might post another update in a few hours. Otherwise, it'll be tomorrow.

Bacho Blue Destiny Gundam #04

Finally an update. I was actually off work for 2 days but laziness took over as always and just ended up re-watching Naruto Shippuuden from episode 157 where Konoha was attacked by Pain.

Well, early this morning, I just decided to continue with this one. Only thing I've done is primed the surface though. Nothing much really. They were the leftover white parts so once I'm done painting them, I'll be finish with it.

Took some pics using my new phone. They look good enough to me. :)

Edit: The formatting looked horrible after posting it with small thumbnails. So had to redo a few times.

Xperia Arc Battery

Got home about 4 hours ago. Was so tired I fell asleep for 2 hours.

As posted earlier, the battery of the Xperia Arc seems to drain very quickly probably due to some software bug(my guess anyway). I looked around and found that there's a simple way to fix it.

Before, the battery would drain about 10% every hour in which case, the phone would only last in 10~11 hours. Now to remedy that, simply before you unplug the charging cable, press the home button to "activate" or "switch on" the phone screen and do not unlock the phone. Only unlock it after you pull the cable then restart your phone. That's it.

If my phone's fully charged, it'll stay @ 100% charge for more than an hour which I find pretty neat.

Now as for the Bacho Blue update, I'll probably continue doing it on my days off which should be coming soon, or whenever I have time(not being lazy).... whichever comes first.

Xperia Arc

Right... I'm posting this using my phone :-)
I haven't actually posted this before but I recently got a new phone which is, as the title suggest, the Xperia Arc.

Been having a bit of battery problem for the last 2 days and since last night, I think I found a solution on the WWW. I'll post it here when I get back home... for anyone actually visit this blog and has the same phone. :-D

Just posting

No update today... well... except for this post. :)

Still trying to get rid of the paints and stickers. My fingers are now getting dry because of the paint cleaner. Will probably have them done tomorrow or the next day assuming I don't get lazy.

I've also started watching a new anime series called "Darker than Black". Yes, it's not new but I haven't seen it and has been on my watch list for a very long time. Currently @ episode 10 and have to say that it's quite decent but not for people expecting a story from the beginning. You could say it's a 2-episode story.

I wouldn't recommend to people with weak heart. :)
