This is part 6 of my journey in collecting tanks and figures from Girls und Panzer series. Because tank builds have been covered numerous times already, I am going to be shortening tank builds unless it’s worth enough to mention the progress. In part 6, I look at Good smile…
This is part 5 of my journey in collecting tanks and figures from Girls und Panzer series. To avoid repetition, I will make tank building logs very short from now on, so this part 5 will cover three tanks from building to painting. The three tanks are Tiger 1, CV33,…
This is part 4 of my journey in collecting tanks and figures from Girls und Panzer series. In part 4, I am going to repaint GSC (Good smile company) BT-42. As mentioned in part 1, I feel GSC BT-42 is too clean. And, while I do have Tamiya BT-42 on…
This is part 3 of my journey in collecting tanks and figures from Girls und Panzer series. Part 3 is about my build log regarding Maxfactory Katyusha & Nonna kit and finalizing T-34 tank painting. The Katyusha & Nonna kit comes in a soft-rubber feel-like box. It's large as well.…
This is part 2 of my journey in collecting tanks and figures from Girls und Panzer series. Before I begin, some painting supplies and airbrush kit are here. Tamiya cement glue (x2), numerous paints, and an air compressor as well as an airbrush tool. The air compressor and airbrush kit…
This is part 1 of my journey in collecting tanks and figures from Girls und Panzer series. I wasn’t going to collect any figures or tanks from Girls und Panzer. I like the anime series overall but the characters were all females and they weren’t my types. (School uniforms and…
When I saw a set of five tiny mononoke spirit dolls from some random seller on Ebay, a scene popped up in my mind. Now, the photo didn't exactly turn out the way I wanted but this was the best I could do. Those dolls glows green in dark once…
Yeeeeah, that's genuinely how I feel about this. When I started collecting figures, I simply kept their original boxes with parts in. But, as my collection grew larger, I began to see what every figure collector would experience at one point: lack of storage space. I do have my basement…
At the moment of this writing, I now have 80+ figures and, out of those, about 60 of them are scale figures. The rest are either trading figures and non-scale figures. And, among the scale figures I have, there are just three swimsuit figure: Tessa from Full metal panic by…
It seems I favor sunset sceneries. It's true; personally my most favorite moment of a day is sunset where the sky and clouds becomes drenched with bloody orange color. I often sit outside and stare at twilight until it becomes dark enough. The archer is Chester Burklight from Tales of…
This is, by far, the most ambitious photograph project I've pulled off. To get the final photo, I had to prepare for a month which involved building two doll houses for this very scene. I've recorded construction of the first doll house in the following blog entry. The scene involves…
For a while, I've been thinking of investing in few doll houses to use as a background prop & more for figure photographs. I never got around actually going for it, until now. Actually, on second though, a grown map building a doll house is never a pleasing thought. Though…
Okay, let's face it. If you are a (straight) guy who is collecting various figures, you'd be lying if you haven't thought about collecting lewd figures. I mean there are gazillions of cute & gorgeous female figures around. It's only natural that a guy wants to collect those which are…
