Last weekend was IPMS OC’s annual OrangeCon event. A group of Those Gundam Guys went and pretty much ruled the Gundam category. One of the tank builders did make the 1/35 scale Hovertank from 8thMS Team, very nicely done. Angel picked up Third place with his Unicorn, I grabbed a Second for my Efreet Custom, and Mike, one of the newer guys to our build gatherings picked up 1st for his Patchwork Sazabi. Which also picked up Best Sci-fi, and with the running of Best of Show, was the one of two kits battling for that award, only getting inched out by Sean’s incredibly well built ship (not a ship guy so, I forgot the name). Not too bad for the new guy who picked up airbrushing from attending last year’s SCGMC.
Which is the perfect segue into the little video I made to help promote the event that is a little less than a month away.
Here’s the link to all the pictures I took at Orangecon: http://gamerabaenre.com/?page_id=2848 I love going to these shows as it gives us a stage to show off some of what we can do with gunpla to some of the other modelers out there. I know we’re starting to get more and more folks interested and testing out the waters. This is also a great opportunity for us to pass word about our upcoming show. Watch the video, it’s less than 2 minutes long. My friend Su-Eun Yin wrote the music.
In other news, here are some pictures of the fix for Revy’s base that I tried not to post in the previous blog. Again, the resin didn’t cure completely and I got some strange bubbling, and when pouring new resin over the old, it just made matters worse. So to sort of fix this without cutting Revy out of the base and starting from scratch – which sometimes is better than trying to fix the issue. I drilled some holes and glued in some grass. Simple fix and it sorta works. Regardless, here are some pictures of that.
