The June model build gathering for a number of us saw very little building. Considering that the past couple of build gatherings have had some fairly heavy non stop building; the group of us felt like just hanging out and relaxing for this gathering. The build started off slow, but we got a few new folks for the gathering. I did get about three or so pieces sanded before the alcohol started flowing. With Duke over; Kenken as our new addition to the household; and Latte, Nathan’s puppy who is Kenken’s little brother, the house was up to 5 corgis.

April model build gathering. Dan, (Funaka) convinced his wife to let him hold the April build gathering at his house. It was a smaller gathering, which was nice and relaxing and probably not as taxing on Dan playing build gathering host for the first time. We had a few late comers, and Manny managed to only glance at the build gathering thread and showed up at my house before realizing that the gathering was not actually at my house this month. It was nice to not have to play host, and I got to concentrate on my own projects. I actually got quite a bit of model work done, more than I have ever had in the more recent build gatherings which is a nice change of pace.

It was a decently busy weekend. I went to my friend’s mom’s house and learned and made a bunch of tamales of different flavors. I’m finally started up on my latest project that I actually sorta started a few years back when I first bought it, but shelved. Then there was the build gathering. This one was very interesting. And whilst I tell the story later, I will definitely come off as a complete asshole, but you just had to be here to fully understand and grasp the big picture. Regardless it was another great gathering. At the end of the night, we piled up all the guitars, for a group picture. I’m sorta cheating, as the left handed, ultra dusty, guitars are mine… but at least I have some variety in that there’s an electric, acoustic, and classical guitars. And unfortunately, I had forgotten to snap pictures during the gathering, but I did snap a few things off my phone, a little too late however.

Saturday was the 29th model build gathering. We made beef koobideh for the grill, and with rice, humus, and flat bread, we had a fairly successful Persian dinner. I got the pastel weathering done at the build gathering and the main sniper kit is completed. I still need to finish working on the weapons and the kit will be done. Duke’s getting bigger, he’s almost as long as Hugo now and but of the three dogs, still the shortest.

We had another build gathering this past weekend so that folks can get some final preparation in to their kits for OrangeCon which is happening in a few days from now. I’ve been steadily working on the Sol Tekkaman kit for the past few weeks and by now have gotten a decent amount of paint sprayed on the sucker. Following the jump are details on the Sol Tekkaman kit and sneak peaks at the various projects folks are finishing.

It’s been a week since I have been back from the cruise. I’ve been fairly busy. I joined 24hour fitness where I go to continue running on machines as I did on the cruise. I also cracked open the Wii fit that I bought a few weeks ago from Circuit City online. It arrived the week before I went on the cruise and didn’t have much of an urge to crack the sucker open. I also got to the Tekkaman Evil kit primed; I have uploaded the new progress pictures – but at least I’m getting work on it, I hope to finish it this week, or at least get very close to completion.
