    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…

    Aoshima/Tamiya Nissan Fairlady Z 350z Nismo

      I’m kind of surprised at myself for not having built a Z33 or Z34 up until now – specifically the Z33, as it very much feels like an import poster car for the 21st century. It’s not an uncommon sight around here, and even when people not very interested in cars see them they immediately know it’s an iconic…
