Photo setup Renovations -Again.

I redid my Photography setup again. Compared to my last one, it’s much more simple, and a lot better in terms of room taken up. It also took a while to set it up today. So it would be physically impossible for me to get a review done today… ^^; Oh, Farts.

Hiatus Announcement

Yup. I’m going away! For about a week. Me and my family are taking our yearly trip up to Moosehead Lake for a week. Now we have a general rule: No electronics. We don’t bring computers, Gaming apparatuses, etc… (though we do bring our phones, an emergency with no phone in the middle of absolutely NOWHERE equals death.) I’m about half way done with the photo’s I think I need to take for Kshatriya, and haven’t yet touched the Red Frame. I’m trying my best to get them done before Monday, So I can write them straight away when I get home. Don’t expect to hear from me from say, now, until Next Friday. I always bring a model or two with me also, to fight off the boredom (Idle hands are the devils Play-things!). This time, I’m bringing my HGUC Unicorn Gundam, and My RG RX-78-2 (though I probably won’t actually build it). I also have some Calculus work that my Kind and courteous Math Sensei (though he is pretty awesome!) gave to me to work on over the summer (and I will thank him).

So here’s to a week of bonfires, cold nights, and an Ever Beautiful view!

A Sunday Note

I was cleaning up my room today, and actually noticed something peculiar. I was starting to organize my spare parts, and took notice that the base of the beam saber for the MG Sinanju is the same type for the HG Exia. Two and two were quickly put together to make Twenty-Two, and Voilà! Gundam Exia with a beam saber almost twice his height!

Well it’s Shark week, What did you expect?

No post in two weeks, BUT! I have a pretty good excuse… ^^; Last Week, I started playing Final Fantasy XII again. Which was a VERY bad idea. This week happened to be shark week, which I kind of treat like a Religion… No seriously. I do. Though the times were not without productivity!

As you can probably see, I managed to complete two other kits over the last seventeen days; which gives me a lovely as hell back log of reviews to write. I also evolved my photo area again, adding some VERY cheap sheets to help diffuse the light and deal with glare.

What I’ll probably do is finish the two reviews I have done, and then shoot the other two, just so I don’t get too confused with the mass amount of photo’s. I can’t wait to review the Red Frame, so I’ll do it last (to help motivate me through the rest). And we’ll see how it goes from there!

Deikun: Out!

Review Update! Getting there…

This is the soul reason I have been so lackadaisical with doing the reviews I kind of owe you guys (and yes. I know what Lackadaisical means) ^^;. but after I bought the supplies needed (which was only going to be one piece of black poster board (which – I was hoping – going to be bigger) but hey! they had a pack of five for three bucks. I ♥ Staples!), and a good five minutes of set-up time, I’m good to go. So I think I’ll shoot both reviews, then slowly write them both out over the next couple of days. Well, I do get easily distracted… is that CAKE!?

Reviews WISP, and Time Hogs!

Wow. A month and no posts? I’m slipping! Though it has been a very productive month for me! I managed to build two more models, that of which the reviews will have to wait. My current photo background got (harshly) destroyed by my older brother when he came home from college… =.=; I also Picked up Pokémon HeartGold a while ago, and am still loving it (it was my first Pokémon game ever, and the first on the DS, How ’bout that?). I’ve also completed a Leg on the Red Frame. Joy, huh? I also plan on Working on a Custom model I’ve been planning for a while. And why not enter it in HLJ’s Photo Contest? I think so! So, I’ll be working on those two new Reviews (They’re on my AC so I don’t forget!), and a couple new models for the next, uh, While.

Experiments, and Zoids!

So yeah! New theme. I kind of like it. Just came out today! Gonna have to tweak it though. We’ll see how it goes. Also Zoids. If you’ve never heard of Zoids (you have), it stands for ‘Zoic Androids’ (Yes, I had to Google that.) And are possibly one of the best line of toys ever. Even rivaling Gundam. The series originally came out in the 1980’s, and was on and off until 1999 (I think) when Takara Tomy (Hasbro in the US) released a line of Zoids that coincided with the events in a show (Zoids: Chaotic Century). What I liked most about these is that the toy line was almost exclusively models. And at that time, Gundam models started getting scarce. Though that line ended in like 2006 (I think), Kotobukiya has begun to release High Quality kits of some models. And I figured it was only a matter of time before they announced the release of a Liger or two.

Model Update! MG Astray Red frame Kai

So, if you read my HG Unicorn Review, You could probably guess what I’m working on next. If not, well, Now you know! ^^; Read the rest of this entry

Guess who’s back?

I am! That’s right. Been gone for what? A month? A MONTH AND THREE DAYS?! Good Lord. Alright now. Well, I’m back, had some stuff to do, got busy, lost the connector cable for my camera, forgot about my blog for a while, remembered my blog, looked for/found my connector cable for my camera, and shot a review for a couple models. That was the past month. More or less. I was going to get back on sooner, but I actually did lose the cable for my camera. And on top of that, I kind of sort of lost most of the photo’s for my GN-X. Including a couple of build ones, it’s been interesting trying to dig them out of my computer, but it didn’t work. So I’m going to have to redo my review for it. But on a later date. So I decided to sit down and build the HGUC Unicorn Gundam (D-M). Fun little build, if you want a spoiler. I’ll have the review up TOMORROW. God himself would have to intervene to stop me from putting this up! (that said, I’ll probably fall down the stairs and snap my Femur in half now… xD)

P.S. I also thought about redoing my Blog layout, but I couldn’t find a new theme I liked. Think I’ll keep this one, but I MIGHT just put in the 15 bucks to get access to the Editor for the site (they give you a free blog, then make you pay for the other stuff. They are good). Maybe when This becomes a little more popular…

Deikun OUT!

Feeling down…

I feel obligated to at least post something, but there’s no picture this time ^^;

I’m feeling pretty under the weather recently, so probably won’t post anything for the next couple days, or maybe until next week, God forbid. Currently working on the GN-X still, about 50% done. Built the GN[T] Drive, love the way it looks. In all chances, my next post will probably be a review (of the GN-X, no doubt), unless some very breaking news happens to pop up. But yeah, I’m off to down pills and take a nap, see yah!

P.S. The decals the the GN-X? Much better than Exia! Alright, back to the pills =.=;;
