Fucking hell, I finally get back into the Gunpla building groove and a key part breaks....FML, consider my motivation shot..........

Now I have to do a replacement part thing with GG, as they seem to be the only one in the US which does that stuff on a per-part order basis (tell them exactly which part, with no reliance on leftover kits only to provide parts)

Which kit and which part in general?

*whispers* Buy a new kit!

I was taking out some of my older collection and damn, some parts are missing [HG Arche Gundam's backpack fin, RG Freedom's beam saber hilt] and some parts are broken [HG Nu Gundam's shoulder peg is cracked, HG Gerbera Tetra's shoulder shows sign of cracking].

Start of a new SWIP: MG Destiny Impulse!

Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

I have the Sword Impulse, but no Destiny so my familiarity is only up to the body. Wings should be the same with Destiny's, but the weapons are in new plates, namely X1 and X2 which are made of the same material as Nu ver Ka's innerframe. Can't wait to do the wings.

Well I sorta over exaggerated, I can finish the kit, but it will be missing a noticeable part

Broke the front ankle armor piece of my HG Sengoku Astray (the part with the jewel/sticker above the foot)

Im probably gonna work some other kits first to see if I break any other parts then order the replacements all together (I pray to god not...)

I wish someone told me before I started collecting Gunpla how addictive it is, now its too late, my collection only grows with each time I get paid. Well I resign myself to this fate.

Speaking of Gunpla hobby, I do know some local builders or collectors that quit it (or had to quit, or forced to quit) after getting married and become a family-man (which I think I will join them soon in that regards, hence my low activity in gunpla-building activity these days). Not saying that being married or having a family of your own is a sure dead-end for Gunpla hobby, but to some people I know, it is. Casual collectors or casual builders are usually common victims of this (at least in my country). The hardcore ones? I don’t think anything can stop them unless their hands are paralyzed due to illness or accident .

Anyway, I still love Gunpla! And I intend to continue doing it even though obviously won't be as intense as when I'm still single .

Whoo, congrats for the (soon to be) marriage

And yeah, I can easily find secondhand gunpla with varied price depending on build quality, most of them usually did it because retiring.

Congratulations Obelisk!
You could do what I did, get her to start as well
Right now my gunpla building has gone down lately, due to having to work a lot (going to thailand for a week and a half next wednesday, had to work my ass off to be able to pay that xp). I'm about 1/3 done with the mg Unicorn, after that mg Red Frame and hg zwei are still waiting for me.

Thanks guys. But we're still in planning stage right now. The real event might still be months away. Wish me luck, and I hope I won't screw it up.

Anyway, I still haven't completed my RG Deactive collection yet. Still looking for RG Deactive Strike & Destiny with reasonable price .

Solution to Marriage:

A. Get the wife started
B. If A fails, get the kids started
C. If A and B fails, get the dog started
D. If A, B, and C fails, consider yourself on your own
E. If D somehow fails......wait what?



Joking aside congrats Obelisk and good luck!

F. If E fails, now you have gotten a taste of reality; Girls and gunpla (or any other fun hobby for that matter) don't mix.

I thought it would cost more but that sure is a decent price for its size

Yes I know it's a game video, but...dammit that Pale Rider I want so much. And STILL no confirmation if he's going to get a regular release or if I really need to buy this game just to get his kit./..

Nah, that Pale Rider is not that impressed. I'm more looking forward to the reboot of Advance to Zeta and these "Re-Zeon" suits.
