I haven’t touch this blog for five years. Yep.
I still love gunpla and other stuff as in 2011.
…And I guess I’m still as lazy and inconsistent in blogging as in 2011.
Anyway, I’m not dead, I got a job and quit being a NEET. I still have enough material to blog but I just don’t have the time.
Things that I need to wrap up:
1. HGUC Hrairoo is done not long after the last post. Now sits on its box in my parents’ home
2. HGUC Advanced Hazel is the same as Hrairoo
3. That Kotobukiya Gespenst Kwai Albero Custom? Haven’t touch it yet. Also it’s in my parents’ home too
4. I don’t feel like finishing that “beginning of my obsession” post
So, much of the old material is in my parents’ home. Quite far from where I live now. Guess I have to start fresh.
Since HGUC Hrairoo is HGUC Gaplant in different color and with additional parts, one can also build regular Gaplant out of the box. It only lacking the booster, but the main unit is still there. And thus this review can also applicable to regular HGUC Gaplant, in case anyone want to buy one.
Seems like I took a long absence from this blog. Well, real life and general laziness and all that. Anyway, done with the arms of Gaplant thus finishing all necessary parts for Gaplant. But not for the kit itself since Hrairoo parts are waiting next.
Well it only took few seconds to put the weapons into already finished model, but I need time for completed model photoshoot. And here it is, the completed 1/72 Nineball from Kotobukiya.
Short update for the weapons. They’re naturally simpler in construction than other parts. And…Not much else I can say actually.
Moving on with Nineball arms and legs. Just like Mirage head and Crest Core combo, Nineball also has Mirage arms and Crest legs. So, excluding weapon, Nineball has equal amount of both company parts. Ok, that’s just mildly interesting trivia. Anyway, parts count still amaze me. But then having to build them twice is such a torture. Well, that’s common thing in building humanoid mech models.
Starting with the head and the core. I’m amazed at how many parts necessary just for the core alone. With this huge number of parts I won’t take parts breakdown picture. Too many parts to laid out and heavy risk of some tiny parts lost or getting blown by the wind in the process. Those tiny parts are really really tiny. There are other difficulties in building process too, but anyway pictures of finished head and core first.
