Take G. A. Romero dead\undead\living universe mix it with a hefty portion of high school romance, add a generous amount of hardcore action, half a pint of raw human blood, a spoonful of pantsu and oppai, a tidbit of high school life, sprinkle it all with ecchi scenes and you have a “Gakuen Mokushiroku: High School of the Dead” – a new anime release from famous studio Mad House.
Was around lower Brooklyn – Bensonhurst area, snapped several shoots of the aftermath of the yesterdays “epic”, according to weather blokes, snow storm.
Scenery here, drastically differ from the City’s. Sanitation blokes here will just plow the streets and leave snow on the side to wait for the good times to come.
Well, it’s been quite a while since I posted something substantial in my blog, been quite wrapped up in stuff lately. But, nevertheless…
Against all odds I successfully finished my first fully painted Gundam. RX-78/C.A. it is. Can`t say it turned out great, but you know the proverb: “Things don’t work the first time”, and they certainly did not. My first and major mistake was not to primer the kit and spray acrylic paint straight on the plastic, to say the least, it was a disaster. Paint scraped off real easy, leaving bare plastic underneath. With a twitch of a thumbnail I`ve been left with a ruined part. Read an article that suggested to leave acrylic paint to dry for at least a weak. A weak! That statement startled me.
Wrapped up the kit with lots of clear coat, which seems to strengthen the paint, preventing it from scraping off. On my next kit – Zaku Minelayer I used plain Rust-Oleum automotive plastic primer, which worked out perfectly, stinks like hell, though. It coats a little bit thick, I might say, but acceptable.
RX-78 before painting, and after.
For quite some time, in the depths of secret labs of Eroge Progect an ero-game development rushes full steam ahead with the release of a demo version.

I’ve been a frequent guest on iichan.ru, and been following the development of this fan eroge, we shall see how it’ll turn out to be. God speed ahead.
Так держать, камрады!
First time building an MG kit. Second time building a Gundam, heh. Started a little bit slow. Took me about two days to assemble whole kit. Darn, so many pieces, and that gold plated parts, have to be careful not to scrape the paint.
Recently, I’ve introduced myself to a Gundam modeling. As it tunned out to be, this hobby is addictive as hell!
Shortly after fully assembling my first model, I ordered another three. Using those Christmas online sales in full.
My biggest acquisition so far, and my first Master Grade Gundam that I shall be putting together – Striker Freedom Gundam “Full Burst Mode”. Actually, package arrived yesterday, but I was too involved with the kit, to scramble a posting. Writing this a day later have different views on the build.
Peculiar fact is that, at first I didn’t want to paint this Gundam at all, giving it a second thought, I have to drop some paint on it no matter what.
As far as the other two kits go, I have something in mind for them as well.
HLJ – Hobby Link Japan, that is. One of my favorite online anime-related merchandise store had a Pre-Christmas sale and free shipping offer, certainly I could not miss on this one. It’s a pity that there weren’t any interesting figures on sale, but instead I got few other goodies to fill my shelves with.
