HGUC Geara Zulu Review

AAAAAH! Finally! Took me long enough to do this. Then again, took me long enough to build the damn thing in the first place! I have this to say about the Gear Zulu: I love this thing! I am myself something of a World War II buff, and always like the Zaku for it’s German looks (not apparent, but there), and the Geara Zulu Solidifies the complete Shutzstaffel look! Gas Mask? check! MP-40? Check! Sturm Faust? Check! Need I go on?

Oh yeah! Stick Grenades? Check!

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!?

Ooh, look! A new Phone!

Alright. So. I got the new iPhone 4! And to be absolutely, completely honest with you… I LOVE it. It’s just so sexy! But for me, one of the real perks, is on the back!

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.

Goin’ Goin’ Gone!

Yeah, running out of title ideas…. =.=;

I’m about 40% done with the GN-X. I have all of the upper body, and it’s weapon units to go. From what I’ve seen while building this though, I REALLY like it! Kind of take all the bad things about the Exia, and make them go away (not make them better, just go away). I’m really anxious to finish this model, to see what the finished product looked like, as I do love it’s design. Though I’ve barely touched the Geara Zulu yet, just did some basic painting. Might actually get to that this weekend. We’ll see. Deikun OUT.

Double Team!

Yeah, no post yesterday. Sorry about that. X|

Now that previously said paper is written, I have all weekend to build models! I decided to start off with two models, just to get things going. When I get bored with one, I’ll move to the other. I’m stating with the GN-X and the Geara Zulu. They should take about the same amount of time, as the Geara Zulu will include A LOT of painting, we’ll just have to see how it goes! Oh, and I also got a good look at the Decals for the GN-X and they look a lot better than Exia, now a bunch of cautions and arrow designs! xD  Though I have a lot of promise for the GN-X, as it looks damn sexy. And yes, you caught my room on a messy spell… =.=’

YATTA!

They’re here! Ordered these models about a month ago, and they just arrived(the Red Frame was on backorder)! A total of seven models, that I actually got in place of a PG 00 Raiser, which I decided was not going to fit anywhere in my house, much less my room. So I traded it for these, which actually came out to the EXACT same price! =D If some of the boxes look a bit rough, that’s because the box got almost completely soaked during shipping. In the end though, non of the models themselves were really harmed. So let’s take a brief look, shall we?
