After what seemed to be months of awkward shipping issues getting stuff to Ireland I am back on the saddle again.

Just finished the MG RX78-02 Origin model. Jeez that thing is a dream I am completely smitten was super fun build and really poseable.

Waiting on panel lining, my markers should come within a few days with an RG GP-01 which is my all time favourite Gundam but now I worried this model has spoiled me. Does anyone have any times on weathering and using real touch markers, wanna try my hand at that but don't wanna spoil a really nice kit.

Oh! Also given the Macross love I've seen in the thread does anyone have any idea where I can get a VF-1 that'll ship to Europe without moon money? I really appreciate the UK based sites you guys linked for Gundam kits but they don't seem to have much for Macross.

Got two more models today just finished the Zaku-II from Gundam: The Origin, pretty happy with how it turned out!

The second is the GM Sniper II from War in the Pocket, which is one of my favorite suit designs.

I'll probably see about getting something from 08th MS Team next and might even try my hand at a MG with the EZ-8 (which is crying out for a revior RG)

Have had a HG Barbatos sitting in the box for about a month to finally try my hand at Gunpla. Austin and the Build Club finally gave me the courage to make a go of it.

Reasonably happy with how it turned out, though I'll need to get better Sidecutters if I make a hobby out of it. As someone who really wasn't sold on the look of the Mobile Suits on Iron Blooded Orphans the actual model sold me on this look a lot.

Now to get the Gundams I really love like some MS Team or this beautiful son of a gun.

I love space and scifi themed wallpapers. This is just one out of around 100 other similar walls I have. And yes, I purposely make the desktop as empty as possible, even going as far as to hide the taskbar.

I to love space wallpapers and if you have some other rad ones I'd love to see 'em. Speaking of space wallpapers:

@oskar_det: Your point seems to back peddle in some ways but that isn't what I am here to ask. you speak venomously about stereotypical badass characters... so I am curious whats your opinion on people like Solid Snake or even someone from a game I assume you hate like Master Chief.

Yes they are "badass" but they also have plenty of characterization in ways that weren't hamfisted like this.

I can't really give an opinion on Samus as I didn't grow up on Metroid, however Prime added plenty her character that is absolutely does not add up with Other M.

quite a good video... very good in fact, but I would post form of opinion with your OP so that its less likely to be instantly called YouTube Spam.

Its always been a sticky wicket with the rules on this.
