GIANT ROBOTS!

I'm in the midst of a crisis. A few months back, the gundam craze got to me. I bought a coupla model kits (1/100 scales mostly) in the hopes of building myself a fine diorama. I was certain I'm gonna make a real impressive show. I mean, I've done rotting corpses and life-sized terminators, right? A robot diorama should be a piece of cake! So, I started off by assembling a 1/100 scale Tieren Ground unit, the 'victim' in this diorama. It was a relatively easy and enjoyable built.

I assembled the parts, waiting for the right time to start with the weathering and washes.

I browsed the net to look for inspiration for the diorama while waiting for the weekends to come. To my horror, I found out that I was wrong about everything. I found a few guys who does really WICKED gundam dioramas!! Their works are so overwhelming that it makes me wanna just throw away everything and give up.
I now know that building gundams are not a piece of cake. It takes careful planning, a lot of sleepless nights, a whole lotta patience and most importantly, PASSION. Just thinking about the whole process sent shivers down my spine. I lost all the confidence I had before. The best thing I could do is to follow what my old teacher used to say; if you reach a dead end, sleep over it. Hopefully, you'll find your way tomorrow. So, I slept.

Today, I'm full of new energy. Can't wait to face the Gundam Challenge! Eager to shed blood for the thing that keeps me sane..I'll keep on posting, and I'll keep on building!
