    HG Gundam G40 (Industrial Sonico Design Ver.)

    I haven’t properly built and finished a Gunpla model in…probably over three or four years? Cars have taken over and ruined my life. I’ve started lots of Gunpla projects and have failed to follow through on any of them in that time…until now. This was an impulse buy just for the heck of it from Bandai’s pop-up booth in LA…

    You thought I’d be sated after building a racecar with Hatsune Miku plastered all over it didn’t you? You thought I would be over Itasha, after the decal hell that the NSX was. I thought so too. I told myself I wouldn’t do it again, but shower thoughts are the best thoughts. About a month before 2017’s SCGMC, I found…
