Linus Torvald says:

"Artists usually don't make all that much money, and they often keep their artistic hobby despite the money rather than due to it."

Wilfred Peterson says:

"A man practices the art of adventure when he breaks the chain of routine and renews his life through reading new books, traveling to new places, making new friends, taking up new hobbies and adopting new viewpoints."

Steve Martin says:

"When your hobbies get in the way of your work - that's OK; but when your hobbies get in the way of themselves... well..."

Dale Carnegie says:

"Today is life-the only life you are sure of. Make the most of today. Get interested in something. Shake yourself awake. Develop a hobby. Let the winds of enthusiasm sweep through you. Live today with gusto."

T. Chris Lim says:

"If you think you're playing too much, PLAY MORE! Remember, there is no game over."

Angry Birds - Gundam Edition

I was browsing some Gunpla-related blogs recently and I found this cute diorama. I think everyone knows what's the story being portrayed here.

I also think that's a very interesting build! So Cute! I also think this build won a prize from a recently concluded Gunpla Builders World Cup 2011.
Congratulations and credits to the owner of this build!

Sneaking Mission: 9th IPMS Philippines Bert Anido National Scale Model Competition

The 9th IPMS Philippines Bert Anido National Scale Model Competition took place last October 17 – 21, 2011 at the Activity Center of Bldg. A, SM Megamall, in Mandaluyong City.

I went last week on a sneaking mission to see some of the masterpieces modeled by our fellow Filipino Plastic modelers. I didn't bring any proper camera., yet I was able to take some photos using my phone.

Here are some images...enjoy!

Advanced Modelers Syndrome - Do You Have It?

ADVANCED MODELERS SYNDROME (AMS) - A chronic malady that strikes most modelers eventually.

Symptoms Include:

1. Not being able to build anything straight out of the box.
2. Spending more money on aftermarket parts and accessories than the cost of the original kit.
3. Opening a box and your first thought is: How can I light this?
4. You super-detail the cockpit or engine compartment only to close it up inside the fuselage or hull and hide your work.
5. Never display finished pieces, possibly because you've never actually finished one.
6. You have more opened and half-built kits than you do unopened kits.
7. You’re long past the point where the opened, half-built, and unopened kits are sufficient to insulate your attic, garage, and the shed you built next to the garage to store all your previously acquired opened, half-built, and unopened kits.
8. You bought that new uber-kit because it was on sale, even though you knew that the only way you’d complete it (to say nothing of actually displaying the bloody thing!) at home would involve rearranging one or more large pieces of furniture—and only after the inevitable discussion with your spouse/significant other on the subject of: you want to put that thing where in my home?
9. The surgical operating suites at Johns Hopkins and the Mayo Clinic are shabbily equipped compared to your modeling area.
10. You are heavily restricted in your modeling activities because you cannot get to your modeling table or tools due to the kit boxes piled up around that area and any adjacent areas - so you have to go browse for more kits online as that’s the closest you will get to actual modeling for the foreseeable future.
11. When you see half walls, closets, shelves, flat furniture tops, tables, etc, in your home that are not otherwise occupied, you automatically view them as potential kit storage space--subject to terms of item 8, above.
12. You use vital parts from forty-seven different kits to make a unique, original model (or to reproduce a starship from your favorite screen epic exactly the way the original was made).
13. Conversely, the remainder of those same forty-seven kits go into your spares ‘box’, which by this time is larger than the chest-type freezer in your basement.
14. Your modeling bookshelves contain more reference works than the local public library.

PS: I never thought I have this syndrome already...

Full Armor Madness for Christmas!

Check this upcoming BanDai kit from the Master Grade line.
The 1/100 MG RX-0 Full Armor Unicorn Gundam Ver.Ka. will hit our local hobby shops this coming December 2011.

There were articulation issues with the previous Unicorn Gundams and we don't know if the designers managed to fix them with this new release. All we know is that the box will be packed with these:

Too many weapons...so few hands. Can you handle them?
Reserve your MG Unicorns now!
