AFA 08 event

Hi everyone. Been a while that I have update my blog. Was busy with the events like AFA 08 and M-con. I have took some photos of the events to share with everyone here. This is the 1st major SMC official outing. Do check it out. After this next week I will upload the M-con event.

The AFA tickets booth. I was meeting with the SMC members there as early as 6am. And early in the morning there is already a long queue and lucky thing is we managed to queue at the front few spots. The reason we came so early as a team it because we’re all hardcore Gundam fan and the original creator Mr Kunio Okawara san will be making an apperances at AFA and we’re queuing so early so we could lay our hands on the 1st 20 MG RX-78 ver 2.0 Gundam where we will be given a ticket to have a privileges to have our purchase autographed and photos taken with the MASTER. If without him I don’t think we will have a chance to build model kits that is called Gundam nowdays.

Now for the solid part of the event show.
When we entered the event hall. We’re greeted by a huge size Gundam Exia place at the BAKUC top ten entries corner. Man I tell you those works are solid. Good job to all selected modelers.

Now for some highlight of the events. Lots of booths and showcase of the latest release from different toys and model kits company. Meet up with one of my friend who works at Latendo also. And they have great offers too over there. So do drop by their shop at Kallang leisure park when you have time. I’m sure their shops will suffice your Otaku needs 🙂

And after lunch we all head back for Mr Kunio Okawara san’s speech session. He covered the design terminology of gundams and alot of his works. If you miss the chance you may never have this chance again as it very rare for the designer to make an apperance to address his work outside Japan. And we get to meet him up close later in the evening also. 🙂

Now is the fun part. After Mr Kunio Okawara san’s speech has ended. We proceed to the seminar hall to “chop” our seats in the front row. It about 2pm at that point of time and we have a 3 hours gaps in between. So we entertain ourselves playing PSP or doing some write out for the upcoming SMC official website.

I was the 1st in line and Mr Kunio Okawara was getting seated and I could see the smile when he saw my MG Zaku II on the table with the model kits that I have bring down with the RX-78 which is purchase by one of the SMC members but sadly he is not able to stay behind due to he is working afternoon shift so I have to help him get his kit signed also.

And the MG ZAKU II shield too

Me holding my MG ZAKU II while watching closely as Mr Kunio Okawara signed on the Zaku II shield. Mr Kunio Okawara signed carefully on the shield as he didn’t want to damaged the paint job as he told me. He sure is happy as I’m the only one who bring a completed airbrushed painted kit for him to sign and it his own design, Gundam and Zaku ^_^

Now the aftermath. Simcher the SMC event coordinator smiling so happily as ever after the autograph session. man we’re all tired out by then. The time if I’m didn’t remember wrongly is around 6 pm plus.

Now the good things has been shown. I would like to share this with everyone. Now there are some things that really piss me off. I’m sure those who come so early in the morning and queuing for the tickets will feel the pain I felt. As you can see this photo. All the members of SMC has pre-order our tickets and we’re the 1st few who managed to get in the start of the long queuing line. And when we collected out ticket and when we proceed to the entrances and waiting for the time for us to proceed into the event hall.

My goodness there are alot of people inside there. Some of them are event helper or staffs and there are also cosplayers who “got the pass” got in there earlier than the others and they managed to grab all the good rare stuffs 1st before us without breaking a sweat where we pre-order our tickets and come so early to collect our tickets/ Queue so early in the wee hours and this is the things that greeted us. We ask the event organizer and express our unhappiness and this thin old man who was wearing a blazer and having a grey coloured hair (You know who you are ) just shrugs us off by saying ” There is nothing we can do” What kind of answer was this? And he didn’t even bother to say we’re sorry or offer some kind of better excuse to us. Hopefully this event organizer can wake up and show some respects and gratitude towards those who are very supportive towards this event. Come to think about it, If there is no fans to support your events. You think you will be able to pull it off? I doubt so.

Photobucket

This photograph is taken before we are given the chance to enter the event hall where those who pre-order the ticket are given a privilege to enter the event hall 15min earlier. But this photo already show it defeat the purpose and they broke their promise. Where in the world are we given the privilege? Those good rare stuffs is all taken by others as you can see from the photo. It sure spoilt our days early in the morning.

If AFA event organizers you are looking at this. Hopefully you could at least give us some explanations to put our mind at ease as you can see from the photos taken has speaks for itself.

Katoots Plastic Modeling Meet 2008

It always this time of the year where katoots.com will hold a mini plastic modeling meet for all active modelers inside the forum to meet up to display their work and a chit chat session. More of like a gathering in my point of view. As more and more people are getting interested in plastic modeling I have also made a decision to set up a new workshop on my own and will be heavily involved in the next few major competitions and events as All my students will be joining in to showcase their talents. One more reason why I would want to move from my current workshop is because if it very far from the city area and the space is very small as there are alot of new modelers coming in to join the courses I provide and coached and I felt they deserve a bigger space to work and learn in. So i guess this is the last time I will see this workshop in action again. So I would like to announce that my new workshop will be fully set up in June. So if you are free do give me an e-mail to contact me or give me a call at 91152087 so I can give you the direction and how to reach the new workshop. It will be in the city area so I think it will be alot easier for all peoples who are interested in Plastic modeling to drop by and say Hi. So without holding everyone back. This is the photos taken at this mini modeling meet 🙂

MG Strike Gundam I.W.S.P

I really like this MG kit featuring Strike Gundam with a I.W.S.P backpack. This kit is one of the kits that takes alot of my time to built. Lots of seams lines and mold lines to clear. The gatling gun support port has the most mold lines and it was a pain to clear them. In the mid i did take some break off to do other stuffs and play some some C & C 3 games. The strike gundam face insignal was masked directly on the base that the kit comes with.Overall i managed to complete this kit in 2 months time due to alot of slacking around 🙂 LOLz
