Now Playing Tracks

I really wanna see Captain America TWS but my visual seizures have been so unpredictable. I’m on Epilim right now I really hope it works on controlling these. Not watching movies is driving me Kookoo.

Since I’m up at the Baxter Building this week spending part of easter with techno4tomcats, I’ve joined in on hens Project Kitty restoration.
Today I spent nearly 6 hours chroming soft plastic (pro tip: don’t ever do this unless you can invest the time and the tears and frustration as even your prepped plastic gives you trouble) from the Murasame and Hayate Ligers. Because the Mugen Liger is an Academy release from Korea, the swords for the Mugen? Hard plastic. Praise the gods. I also stripped off the old white-paint from the fins on Murasame that Kimbo did a while ago, primed the plastic with acetone to remove the almost oily film the softer plastics have, then painted over them with a gorgeous gold-brass enamel Kimbo picked up today at the hobby store we raided. 
That same brass was used by Kimbo to do all of the gold parts on the Hayate — the back legs and fins and boosters haven’t been done yet, but the head, claws, teeth, and side fins are all beautiful re-painted. The white has been touched up to be super bright (and as I jokingly called it since it was the gloss white finish ‘candy’ coated), and the red on the head and the front legs, hind legs to come, have been redone too. Along with the gold on the shoulder pads. 
I also touched up the claws, beard, and teeth on Murasame. Kimbo did metallic blue on Hayate’s caps, and I have my marker box up here too so I used my ラメGold, since it’s a pastel orange-gold with the spackle in it, for Murasame’s caps. These babies are going to be so blinged and loved up when they’re done.
I really love the work Kimbo’s done so far. Hayate is looking so gorgeous, and I’m honoured I’ve been able to join in with giving Murasame some loving too so that they’ll be as gorgeous as their brand new Mugen brother who’ll be built soon!

Brastle Tiger: Bombay Special.

Standard Brastle Tiger Kit given some detail; I was originally going to do filigree but then I decided on a more paisley patterning on the bristle mechanism.

I think Brastle Tiger as a kit is under-rated. Its a solid chunky kitty, with a ton of cool features. Its a very plain kit, so I detailed a lot of the panels with a mix of enamels and metallic gundam markers [metallic red in particular]. Gold leaf’d the thermal cannon covers and caps. I love its foot locks too!

I tried some graphite powder on the claws and teeth but it didn’t quite work as expected. Still, very happy with the kit.

hi everyone!

as some of you might know, i have a disability called functional neurological disorder. it’s a tricky disorder that means that my brain and nerves don’t communicate properly, so my brain interprets a lot of signals as pain, and can’t communicate movement signals very well. it’s the reason i use a wheelchair, amongst other things.

starting this sunday, april 13th, is fnd awareness week! it’s a week where people who have fnd, and those who know us, try to raise the profile of this kind of obscure condition. a lot of people either don’t know about fnd or don’t understand how it works, and it makes accessing healthcare and benefits really difficult for people who have it.

i’d really appreciate it if you helped to spread the word! reblog this post or make your own, or just tell people about fnd and how it affects people. lots more information can be found at the website of fndhope, an advocacy organisation for fnd sufferers. it would be super super cool of you if you could maybe donate something to them to help with their efforts - you even get a neat wristband for donating!

i’ll reblog this a few more times over the next couple of weeks for people who might not have seen it, so sorry if you see it a bunch of times.

thanks for reading, friends!
