When I can I like to work on my Gundam models. It’s a hobby and it’s not computer related so that makes it a good thing. Both my kids enjoy watching me assemble the models and as an added bonus I build some just for them. They get to keep the models I make for them and they take good care of them.
They’re 5 and 6 years old. Sometimes they get out of control (like all kids do) but when it’s important to them they really are well behaved.
I’ve completed the HG Dynames from Gundam 00. Not quite as good as the HG Exia but not bad either. Here is the picture.
Finishing the HG Dynames freed me to let my girl pick one from her pile. She asked me to assemble the HG Gundam Astray Red Frame. As I assembled it, she would look at the finished pieces. She sat right next to me as I completed it and really admired it when it was finished.
It’s not often that I can get my girl to appreciate what I am doing. But when she and her brother do give me their undivided attention, it’s great.
Since I completed the girls model, the boy wants me to start working on one for him. He’s selected the 1/144 HG Strike Rouge + IWSP. It’s bigger than the other 1/144 models so he might be asking for it as a competition for his sister. He always asks for me to build him model that have large back packs.
