With all these comic releases this year including Thor, Green Lantern and Captain America I wonder if French Connection will add to their comic line of T Shirts So far I am comfortably buying one a year!

1/144 Gundam UC Dreissen

Ever since UC0079 I have been a great fan of the DOM and the Black Tri Stars. I was pumped when I found out that this classic beast was revamped in the third Unicorn movie- The Ghost of Laplace. If only they had three of them for a reenactment of the famous Jet Stream Attack. The mobile suit is quite interesting it has the traditional bazooka, beam gatling, beam sabre and these cool blade funnels like the Razor Bats that the Green Goblin from Spiderman uses.

PG Strike Freedom WIP- Shoulders

The parts are coming together now! The shoulders so far have been the easiest part. I have to say although simple they are pretty neat! The top half has an inbuilt lever so that when you push outwards the mechanisms spring outwards. After wasting many decals I have finally settle with something I liked. This ZAFT theme was harder than I thought repect for the guys at the hobby centre who actually do this for a career.

PG Strike Freedom WIP- Body

The construction for this project was delayed this month because I couldn't source any gold paint As mentioned before all frame parts are sprayed or resprayed for consistency. The chest did take some time I completed it over four building sessions and close to six spraying sessions. The main difficulties I encountered were paint scratching when I put the air vents in. They resulted in ugly chips for the right vent I had to remove all paint twice with metho and respray to get what I wanted.

 The hardest part was connecting the white lower torso with the main body. Theres a hydrolic gimmick and getting the parts to connect when the connection points are on an angle was pretty tedious. The points I like about the main body is in the frame. The articulation point for the waist is a ratchet cog lock system which secures the torso from sagging from the backpacks weight.

I also started with my decal set my objective as portrayed before was to make a decal set symbolising Kira's decision to turn to ZAFT at the end of the Final Plus Special Edition. Pretty much Strike Freedom with ZAFT decals instead of Orb ones. I had to buy a pack of ZAFT water slide decals for this special project.

ODU's minute of silence

In light of the devastating earthquake in Japan it makes me wonder if 2012 is really on its way. We have had floods and cyclones in Queensland and earthquakes in New Zealand and Japan in a span of less than four months. Lets dedicate a minutes silence for the lives that have been taken away and offer a prayer for those that are still out there be found so that they can be reunited with their families.
