Ever get that painful headache where you can feel the vein behind your eyeball? You know, the type of headache where you look left or right and it hurts to do that? I get those from time to time, maybe 4 times a year. Last night I got that around 3 AM so knowing what […]

Awesome Transformers video

Saw this on Boing Boing. Just amazing what this guy did using a Canon 550D w/18-55mm kit lens and 50mm f/1.8 as as well as a Nikon D5000 w/18-55mm kit lens. You can see the video in HD at the Vimeo page.

I blame Don Franklin Andrade

This is my work in progress photo of the MG MS-06J Zaku II “White Ogre” version. It’s hard to see them but did you notice the panel lines? One of my friends on Flickr is a gentleman by the name of Franklin Andrade who also builds Gundam models as well. You can see some of […]

I’m at a loss to explain to my children accurately what happened that morning and convey to them how the whole world changed due to a group of madmen. The closest I can […]

It’s official. The MG Gouf version 2.0 is awesome. There have been hardly any surprises and I can’t find anything that demands gluing. Tomorrow I’ll complete the back pack cables and start the arms.

Starting the MG Gouf 2.0

I’ve started building the 1/100 MG Gouf 2.0. So far so good, once again I am trying to slim down on my Gunpla stash. I’ve only completed the first 2 parts (torso and head) but it’s a very different model than the original MG Gouf. As I usually do, I’ll post photos once it’s done.
