Last week.. while tako was away in Malaysia for a week, i had the opportunity to do some cleaning up in my house and room.. and well-hidden in the highest level on a mounted shelf, i stumbled upon a treasure... my very own treasure.....
Recognized something familiar? a closer look...
This is the Gundam Air Master. My very first Gunpla. Battered and bruised.
That's right.. this is my first ever gunpla.. Gundam X HG 1/100 Gundam Air Master.
my mom bought me this kit from Chinatown's UBER old OG when i was 10 years old? really brings back lotsa memories... back then i've no idea or whatsoever a gundam is.. i jus know that its a cool looking robot that can change into a plane. so armed with my experience building legos, without any guidance, i set off to build my first gunpla.
that was the beginning of my gunpla journey.. of cos there were on and off periods thru out the years.. especially when gunpla had a price hike. i rembed after i built this kit, the next time i touched a gundam was 4 years later, during my secondary school days. XD i think i was busy with other games and toys..
Secondary school days was another one of my 'Gunpla Peak' periods.. heh. that was when i watched Gundam Wing and rembed i had a Gundam standing in a cupboard display.
'So THAT's a Gundam!!!'
and soon, as my interest grew and i managed to bug my mom every week, i had the whole collection of HG 1/100 Gundam Wing Series and Endless Waltz Series up on display in my cupboard...
After some maintenance.. good as 'NEW'. XD
So how did it managed to hide itself at the top of a shelf? it was during my house's living room's renovations that occurred, my dad packed up all my stuffs and hid it somewhere in the house. and i totally forgotten abt it.. i still have the whole Gundam Wing Gundams hidden somewhere in my house...
having this Gundam Air Master reminds me on how raw my skills were when i first started.. XD i took some close up photos to share with you guys.. ^^
Almost all the nubs were untreated.. lolx. i think nothing fits nicely in this kit..
im really surprised the stickers still stays on till today... O.o
yups.. im missing one single part... T.T
dun worry, i'll do smthing it and give you a face lift! ^^
I've decided to give it an extreme-make over job when im free.. right now its patiently waiting for its turn to shine, while i study.. XD wad is your first gundam kit? is it still around? feel free to share it with us! =D
Smthing that appeared with Gundam Air Master.....
lol! Gashapon Figures from a more den a decade ago!! can you name all of them?? gonna clean them up and arrange them nicely on my desktop...
Cleaning up really brought alot of surprises to me.... =)
