The End of Ngee Khiong, A Divided Community?

The Lonely Man

Today was the beginning of a rather sudden end to Ngee Khiong, the leading source for Gundam and mecha related toy news on the internet. For as long as I can remember, having gotten back into Gunpla, I would visit Ngee Khiong on a daily basis (if not more than that). For the English speaking community there is no greater source for breaking news, price announcements, official & show photos, and even front running reviews. Unfortunately NK has decided to close down the site, leaving a giant gap in the community. Leaving a community shocked, saddened, confused, and angry. A community, apparently to blame.

1/48 Gundam, WIP Update #3

Body: 

I really need to keep track of what updates I post here. Apparently all of my 1/48 Gundam status updates have different titles and different tags. Stupid me.

Anyhow, here's my Mega Size 1/48 Gundam as it stands right now...

WIP 8/15

WIP 8/15

Still lots of work to do. Plenty of lines need to be refinished, some of the gold and silver details need to be touched up, a little bit of weathering, and at some point a final top coat.

I actually started building this kit over a year ago. I remember picking the kit up for cheap on eBay, building it, and modifying a MG Nemo gun for it. Then, for whatever reason, I shelved it for later. Now in the past two week it's turned into an experimental test subject to finalize some addition to the Layman's Gunpla Guide.

Gunpla Stop Motion Dom Jetstream Attack

Body: 

A gunpla fan over on /toy/ shared some of his stop motion gunpla projects. My favorite is the one below using the 1/144 Jet Stream set of Doms...



Check out his other videos. They're pretty good, especially for someone using a tripod made from Lego. Okay, yeah, they're pretty cheesy at points, but I'm looking forward to his next big production. His Lego construction videos are pretty good as well.

In Progress - RX-78-2 O.Y.W. 0079 - 1/100 MG - Update II

Body: 

I've made some more progress on my MG 1/100 RX-78-2. The right leg is about 90% done and the left foot is done.

I'm still having issues with nub marks remaining, but I've been trying a few different techniques. Hopefully I figure something out soon. Anyways, I'm happy with my progress so far.
