Gunpla withdrawal symptoms


2 min read

It has been a while since my last post. I’ve been doing many extra hours at work so I’m usually asleep once I get on on train and bus on my way home. Back at home, I get my daily dose of Facebook before I attempt to absorb all the knowledge from photography books.

I barely have time to get through a few pages before I doze off. We shall see if I can post more entries.


p class=”text”>The last gunpla I bought was the MG Char’s Rick Dom when I was in Taiwan in March. Surprisingly, I managed to abstain from making a purchase at the Gundam Expo held last month.


MG Char’s Rick Dom.

Nikon D40 with Nikon 50mm f/1.8D, f/4 at 1/8, Auto ISO chose ISO 1250.

I have not fiddled with my gunpla since I found out that my dad broke my MG Destiny. Although Destiny isn’t my favourite Gundam from Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny, every gunpla I own is dear to me.

It is only a matter of time before I am compelled to go buy a gunpla kit to build. Here’s a list of kits I want to get:

  • MG Strike Freedom Gundam
  • MG Char’s Gelgoog ver 2.0
  • MG Sword Impulse Gundam
  • MG Sinanju

The limited edition bazooka canon for the Sinanju is extremely rare now and I doubt I’ll want to splash the cash to ship it here. But if I ever see it anywhere, I’ll definitely get it!

Is anyone interested in going for airbrushing workshops? I plan to learn how to do it and then consider if I want to invest in an airbrush set. A PG kit needs good airbrush work to make it look good.

Mastery of the technique would pave way for me to purchase the following:

  • PG Strike Gundam
  • PG Gundam MK II Titans version
  • PG Gundam RX-78
  • PG Red Frame Astray

I’m drooling too much to continue posting.
