Devil Arts MG Providence - Unboxing

Hey gundam meisters! There's been too much negativity circulating in the various facebook groups I've been following lately, mostly due to some guys doing something spectacularly stupid at the ongoing Expo, but I won't expound on that anymore and would rather let the issue die. Can we all just stay positive and focus on enjoying the hobby? Because really, every minute you waste arguing or complaining is a minute not spent building plamo and improving your skills. To cheer you up, here's an unboxing of the Devil Arts 1/100 Providence ver. Sun - a rather recent release from a new name. I've got high expectations for this kit since I saw the preview images a while back. A youTube video is at the bottom for those who prefer it.

Gunpla Expo Philippines 2017

Good day plamo nerds! It's been an action packed month on the blog indeed, and with a new post coming out every week you'd think this was a full time job. Should I take a break then? Nope. Otaku on a budget has no chill! Besides, there's this thing called the Gunpla Expo, and it's in town for the first time ever. What self-respecting plamo blogger would sit this one out?!  I happily dragged my wife and son against their will to Mall of Asia on Day 1. Jump in if you'd like to know my impression of the event, and for some poorly taken photos of the stuff on display...

Master G233 Airbrush - Review

A pleasant day to you all my lovely plamo nerds! After almost a year of using the Master G233 airbrush, I think it's about time I did a review. It's not a new model by any means, but I think it deserves some attention, even with all the other generic Chinese airbrushes flying around. This was the airbrush I used on the Boros, and if anything it at least made the daunting task of painting the model a little less stressful by never giving me any problems, which - as far as cheap airbrushes go - is saying a lot. There's a video at the bottom of the post if your millennial instincts tell you anything less than an animated GIF is boring.

Hobbiworkz Airbrush Cleaning Pot - Unboxing / Review

Greetings and salutations plamo weeabs! Here's a quick unboxing and review of the Hobbiworkz Airbrush Cleaning Pot. There's a video review at the bottom of this post so you can skip down to that if you prefer listening to my sexy bedroom voice, but for the KB conscious, I took a bunch of pics as well.

Mecha Musume - Ezia Tori

Happy hearts month plamo weeabs! I'm sure many of you are taking a break from your WIPs and have been cutting back on plamo expenses in preparation for Valentines day. Despite being the brutish and barbaric men of macho manliness that we are, I know for a fact that we all cave for our special someone on the 14th - and anyone in a relationship who claims otherwise is a big fat liar.

But for the members of the lonely hearts club, don't drown your sorrows in paint thinner just yet, because this feature post just might cheer you up!

If I asked you to imagine a girl's room, the first thing that comes to mind is pink, right? A dresser littered with beauty products, bottles of nail polish, and an assortment of makeup equipment. Shelves would be stacked with either stuffed animals, a collection of barbie dolls, or Nicholas Sparks books, depending on her age.

Although our guest for today does have a penchant for pink things, take a closer look at her room and you will quickly realize that there's something unique about this girl. In place of nail polish, model grade paints adorn her desk. Instead of fuzzy bears and mushy novels, an army of mecha stands guard on her shelves. Ladies and gents, please welcome our featured Mecha Musume for today - the founder of Gunpla Girls herself - miss Ezia Tori!

Talyer Talk

Good day plamo nerds! I've finally finished relocating all my plamo stuff to the new place, and I'm super stoked (that's what the kids say these days) to get back to work on my mecha projects. But before I pop the cherry of this brand new mecha "talyer" (english: shop), I thought I'd talk about it a little bit and share some photos while it's still a "virgin" so to speak. I've been working out of a plastic bin for years and never really had a dedicated work space up until this point, so you'll have to indulge me a moment as I show off my shiny new cabinet. May she be a vessel of creativity, a fortress of frugality, and a dependable ally as I voyage into the outer reaches of the plamo universe - my very own beast of possibility.
