Today is one of those rare moments in time where our new born son actually slept through the night with a 4 hour stretch. I took out my HGUC Rezel Commander without hesitation and decided to churn out the top half. This is an opportunity not to be wasted!
My usual work desk has now been invaded with all manners of baby equipment. Nevertheless I must build no matter what. So to keep both my desk and place clean, I took the bottom half of the box, opened one side and do all my cutting and scraping in it. Not only it helps keep the small little flakes of plastic in check, but it also really helps in preventing parts from flying of the table!!! Of course ignore those 2 orange ears popping up..must be some spy….
And for once, I decided to use the stickers for some extra details to my little snap fit project. I must say, these stickers are a big plus. Didn’t expect to see these included since we didn’t get any for HGUC Kshatriya and Sinanju. Thats the plus point of buying grunt kits hehe..
Surprisingly, the stickers work like a charm. With a little toothpick, I went over the surface of the sticker so that it won’t look as white on the edges. From far, its not that noticeable besides that sexy 007 number of some secret agent…
So far I have moved from one insane week to the next lol. Finally I see some respite from the late nights. Plus my son is finally making some weird cute endearing sounds..like a baby cat’s meowing. Must be my wife’s liking for cats that might have passed on to him somehow.. cats aside, compared to my earlier snap fit days where I can build kits in under 2 hours, now I take every single nub mark and go through them as carefully as possible. Plus I take even greater care when i cut them out from the plastic sprues. Even though the build is slower, but I feel that the build is much more fulfilling. In fact I missed those days of just happily snap fitting without having to worry about detailing or seamline removal. Reverting back to the very basic joy of snap fitting is a wonderful experience and a great change of pace.
Hopefully later I’ll get more time to do up the lower half of my Rezel!
Till the next post!
