Dubbed “The black robot” in the Patlabor TV series, it was the highlight of the anime. Its lack of markings was characteristic of this robot as it was a secret experimental machine by Schaft Enterprise Japan. During the times it engaged the “Special Vehicle 2″ crew, its advanced performance literally left them in awe, as it took to the skies…

Yukikaze (??). Literal translation of the word means blizzard or snow-wind. To me it gives a sense of tranquil and yet, like it’s maker in the anime said, it’s a monster, a savage beast.
I’ve fallen in love with the anime, Sentou Yousei Yukikaze, ever since it first came out. For me, it’s a perfect combination of form and machinery (much like how I love GITS too). The aircrafts are unconventional and beautifully designed. The Mave is actually a combination of the robotic Rafe and the original Super Slyph Yukikaze. You have to see the series to believe how awesome it really is.

I first came across the idea to this kit before I even own this kit. Yeah, so I copied the idea. From this excellent vignette by Matt Wellhouser. It’s simply stunning. So finally I came across a couple of these interesting Super Deformed (SD) figures in a local store having a sale. I grabbed them under encouragement from my gf. But actually I had already wanted to get them so that I can put them together just like Mr. Wellhouser did!
Actually I really liked the idea because it’s ironic in a really humourous way. No that war is anything funny but the proximity of the 2 person who are enemies and highlights a very subtle point of how close people actually are when they wage wars and fight each other.
Made for a friend. ^_^
Thanks to a friend, I was introduced to the world of game figure painting. I think people who love this hobby, loves the story behind it all as much as the game itself. The story of Tau came about as a race who was once fighting among themselves as they belong to several different caste, each with their own strength. But once united, they were a force to be reckon with as forged their way through the Warhammer 40K universe.

Finally got to build myself a 350Z. It’s one of the most captivating of modern street cars that I liked. I don’t really know why, maybe it’s because of it’s specs that give cars like Porsche a run for it’s money. Maybe it’s the clean lines of the design. Smooth and flowing, like a piece of artwork.
That’s why I decided to build this kit even after swearing after my Xanavi kit that I won’t be building any cars soon.

How shall I describe a stunning car (model)?
It’s like a beautiful woman. So much so that it seduces you with every curve and no matter which angle you look at her, she sets your heart racing. Her body (shell) tempts you to touch it, feeling the smooth curve of the perfectly sculpted body…
But like a beautiful woman, she is temperamental, demanding that you treat her like a princess. Perfect is the only way to treat her. No mistakes to be made here, for if any, her beauty leaves you before you next blinks your eyes.
So are you up to it?

The introduction of the valkyrie range from Macross by Hasegawa must have been a dream come true for many modelers and macross fans alike. Hasegawa is known to produce the best aircraft kits and it is no doubt that no one else comes up with better looking kits.
But how about something as fictional as the valkyrie? I mean, they can’t just go out to measure how long is the nose cone right? Well, leave it to the people at Hasegawa to cough out the best and argueably the most ‘accurate’ valkyrie ever!
