Shopping in Tokyo and Hong Kong 2017

Shopping in Tokyo and Hong Kong 2017 No updates on the MG Sniper 2 because I’ve been in Asia for the past week and a half. I had a trip to Hong Kong planned since last November. But once the news about the last days for the 1:1 Gundam in Odaiba Japan came out, the last day was actually a few days […] Source: GameraBaenre’s Blog

MG GM Sniper 2 Progress: gun works, scope works, some feet and more priming

MG GM Sniper 2 Progress: gun works, scope works, some feet and more priming It’s Monday, time for the blog post that brings everyone up to speed on last week’s Sniper work. The main focus for this update will be the sniper rifle which I finally revisit after the very first post with a half-assed slapping of a new barrel and new stock onto the sucker.

MG GM Sniper 2 Progress: Front skirts, new antenna, and some chest mods

MG GM Sniper 2 Progress: Front skirts, new antenna, and some chest mods This is going to be a fairly sizable update. This includes the work from last week as well as over the weekend. I’m starting to focus and get more and more work done as the inspiration continues. The front skirts are REALLY plain looking. Yes, it’s a grunt suit, so it should be relatively simplistic […] Source: GameraBaenre’s Blog

End of the year home improvement project

End of the year home improvement project Happy New Year everyone! I’ve been away from any gunpla for a while because of the holidays as well as doing some home improvement projects.

WTF Happened to Funaka???

WTF Happened to Funaka??? TLDR Version: I moved and I’ve been REALLY busy so not much building and even less posting. But I’m back. Hopefully I’ll stay back. So it’s been over two years since I updated my blog. I’m still alive and building models but a few things have happened that have kept me from updating Funakatown. The first is that I moved last year. I spent the Spring and Summer preparing to sell my old house, selling … Read More

IBO Diorama WIP 1: The Base

IBO Diorama WIP 1: The Base I originally  wanted to recreate the final fight between  the Barbatos and Graze Ein from the anime for my first diarama. Didn’t feel like buying the 6th form HG Barbatos but I had the HG Barbatos that came with the Long Distance Booster. Looked into how much model buildings cost (they are expensive) and didn’t want to scratch build them so I went with a forest fight. From there I came up with … Read More
