Last week was March’s build gathering, and since it was a week away from Kenken and Latte’s birthdays (March 24th), we also invited their breeder’s sister who owns Crumpet, Kenken and Latte’s sister.

Again, as I’ve been progressing through the HGUC Nu Gundam builds, I’ve been taking a good number of videos of various process that may or may not be intuitive to newer modelers.  I’ve already gotten a few requests for videos of certain techniques, and I hope to get more.  What may come as second nature to me may not be as intuitive to others, so I need the feed back to know what else I should focus the camera.  Additionally, I’m trying to get it so that the videos are focused on the actual process, so hopefully, my video taking skills are getting better.

The first thing for this update is that I added a masking Tutorial to the pack.  For now it focuses on masking gunpla, I will update it soon when I some masking work on a figure kit.  Click here for the masking tutorial.
