Let’s Talk Everything Gundam Part 1

Share

Lately, I’ve been hooked up again with the idea of collecting scale models, particularly Gundam. When I was like 12 years old, I started this same venture but I lost my collections. (And I didn’t know where they are right now.) Anyways, I’m having this collection as my new hobby. Better to collect things like these than you know…

First Kits Now

These are my two new kits I got last Monday. Well, I know that I need lots of time and lots of MONEY to have this venture going on. Normally, a Gundam model kit ranges from about Php 1,500 up to a whopping Php 12,000! Of course I’m not buying kits like the latter. But then again, who knows; I might end up having one. If you’re a Gundam fan that’s good! Just keep on reading this! But if you are not, that’s likewise good! You don’t want to spend your money with this type of deal. But I do.

Gundam 00 Raiser

So, let’s cut to the chase. Building Gundam model kits is like putting too much effort to it. With a hefty price tag, you don’t want to cry like a baby if some parts are lost or you break several. In this particular kit, I spent almost seven hours just to complete it (Of course, with bathroom privilege). If you want to start this venture, you need to have all essential things. On my next blog, I’ll talk about this on an in-depth account so you can have a clear picture of what I’m saying.

Parts Parts Parts

Basically, these are the things you will get inside the box. At this point, I am collecting models on the 1/144 scale. (Who cares, right?!) Just so you know, there are several types of Gundam model kits. From the least up to the model with the highest details; First Grade, High Grade, No Grade, Real Grade (This is new), Master Grade and the king of them all; the Perfect grade. All of these corresponds with price, so you might want to check the prices first.

Work And Work

As of the moment, I’m into the High Grade and Real Grade collection, which is quite hefty for some but for most Gunpla fans, these grades are somewhat come with reasonable price tags. Here are some of the pictures of my 1/144 Scale Model HG Gundam 00 Raiser + GN Sword III. I’m a BIG fan of Gundam ever since so don’t ask.

I have purchased three more kits and I’m just waiting for it to arrive. Who says you can’t be a kid again? Well, in every single way, this is better than spending your life outside the house partying. This is my comfort zone right here. :) I’m a kid at heart and I have a positive perspective towards that!

Fresh And Hot

I’m just on the very first phase of this venture and I’m looking forward in climbing up eventually. With all the gimmicks like painting, joining Gundam conventions and just being the very best Gunpla builder I can be; it will be fulfilling.

Copic And Sharpie

These are two of my greatest companions in building Gunpla. The Copic Marker and Sharpie Marker. You need these to panel line your model kit in order to give the 3D effect and add further details to your Gundam. (If you have one)

Aile Strike

Anyways, like I said; there’s a part two for this and in part two, I will let you know the essential tools in order to start building your very own Gunpla and might as well blog my third attempt to build Gunpla. This time, I will share with you how to build a more complicated series; the Real Grade series. And for that, I have this teaser picture of what’s in store for you. I know, it’s sweet, ain’t it? Just always remember not to buy knockoffs! Until then, Zero out!

 

David Archuleta Live in Manila 3 (DALIM3)

Share

Last night, July 18, 2011 at exactly eight in the evening will be the start of DALIM3 concert in Araneta Coliseum. I left Orani at past two in the afternoon, then I arrived at Manila at five in afternoon. Unfortunately, hindi pwede ang mga kaklase kong sumamang manood dahil may pasok pa sila kinabukasan at marami silang ginagawa, kaya akong mag-isa na lang ang nanood ng concert. Julie Anne San Jose was the only front act for the concert. I think she sang five songs. Then After Julie Anne wowed the whole Araneta Coliseum, approximately thirty minutes before David Archuleta came out on the stage as he sang Stomping the Roses which is included in his third album, The Other Side of Down. Other than his new album, he included to his concert his debut album. When he sang the Elevator from TOSOD, the crowd gone wild, so he made the crowd sang the other part of the song. And then he played piano, I think twice. When he played A Thoousand Miles, he run out of the tune for a moment because of the crowd overwhelmed him so much, but he makes the crowd wowed again when he continue the song at pinlitan niya ang isang phrase ng kanta na dapat ay “‘Cause you know I’d walk a thousand miles…” ay ginawa niyang “‘Cause you know I’d fly a thousand miles, so I could just see you, tonight…” after that nagwala na kasisigaw ang mga tao. Patapos na ang concert, pero

hindi pa din nauubusan ng energy ang crowd. Pagkatpos niyang kantahin ang huling kanta ay nagbigay muna siya ng maikling pasasalamat at mensahe para sa kanyang mga Pinoy fans. Isa-isa ng naglabasan ang mga kabanda niya at sumunod na siya. But the crowd insisted when he left the stage, wala na siya sa paningin ng mga tao at nagbubukan na ang ilaw, pero sigawan ang buong Araneta ng “We Want More!” ng paulit-ulit. Laking gulat na lang ng lahat ng bumalik siya sa stage at kumanta pa ng dalawa at saka na nagpaalam ng tuluyan. Wala ng nasabi pa ang mga tao, kaya isa isa ng naglabasan. Pag labas ko ay may pinagkakaguluhan ang mga tao, then I check myself what is it, in my big surprise, it was Julie Anne San Jose, wala siyang security ewan ko lang kung bakit, kaya I took the chance na rin para magpapicture sa kanya. Paglapit ko pa lang sa kanya ay tinanong ko na agad siya kung pwedeng mag papicture, then she said yes, kaya may picture kaming dalawa. Unforunately, nacorrupt yata yung mga pictures sa camera. Hindi ko alam kung saan ang terminal ng Bataan Transit sa Cubao at sarado na rin ang LRT papuntang Recto para dun ako sa Avenida sumakay. The concert was ended around 11 in the evening. Sa Aurora na lang ako sumakay ng jeep paapuntang Avenida, and when I came there, wala pang bus pauwing Orani, 2:30 ng umaga pa daw ang first trip, wala akong nagawa kundi maghintay ng oras. Nakauwi na ako ng past three in the morning. Wala ng tulugan, deretso Balanga na para pumasok sa Lexor. :)
