First Blog Post, and MG EX-S Gundam review

Yay! This is my first blog post, and I’ve just started to do this after a long time. I needed to refresh on my html skills, which i haven’t used in 5 years. I decided to make a new blog because i need a new time-killer when I’m not doing anything productive, other than studying or homework >__<. Deciding to make a new blog at this time of year is probably the worst time – a month left till exams, especially when I’ve got hardcore courses at the moment like chemistry, physics, and biology. Well, putting school aside, my inspiration to make a blog is because of Java class during last semester. I loved the course, even though i wasn’t the best at it, nor was I the worst. I’ve got some computer skills in me, so I’ve decided to put it to good use even though I’m not going into any career involving computers. 

Master Grade EX-Superior Gundam

Well, here it is, the MG EX-S Gundam which I’ve bought sometime after New Year’s, and build it during March break. I built this for the anime club at school, for the Gundam Modelling Tutorial article that I wrote for the beginner modeller. Its my first master grade Gundam, so I took my time and patience to sand and paint some parts, and topcoat the whole model. I decided to get this model instead of a MG Strike Gundam or an RX-78, since i have a wall scroll of the model on my wall. The details on the Gundam are quite impressive, but very hard to ink as the lines are very thin. Also, it probably has the biggest held gun I’ve ever seen! No shield, which I was disappointed about, but it has many transformations, and also a separate G-Flyer, which is up in my room and too lazy to bring down ^0^. The pics here are taken from my 1.3 megapixel camera phone, since I don’t have any other digital camera (plan to get one soon!!).
