I’ve changed the Header again for the site, I like to keep it rotating but this one is especially appropriate for a few reasons –
1.) The title “Korewa Gundam” comes from Garrod Ran in Gundam X, when he and Tifa, escaping from NEFF agents stumble upon an abandoned warehouse and find, waiting in limbo, the GX-9900 Gundam X that Garrod would pilot for the majority of the series. Garrod mutters “Kore..wa….Gundam?” Or “This is [a] Gundam” in English…so you can see how the title of my little blog here is a bit of a play on Garrod’s famous line.
2.) It was about this time, 15 years ago, that I purchased my first Gunpla kit, the 1/144 scale Gundam Leopard from my local Hobby Store. At the time, I had no idea what I was looking at, but through that little guy, I managed to open the doors to a lifelong interest. (More on this later, and you’ll see why…)
So I like the new header…the Double X has always been one of my all time favorite MS, and I like that a pilot (Garrod) is in this one, because lets face it, without the human side of the MS Gundam Stories, they wouldn’t be nearly as great as they are.
Other than that, I’ve had a week from hell and have been slow to get around to painting the details of the GP01’s inner frame (let alone the white armor sections), so nothing new to report there. I’ll try to snap myself out of my personal funk and get some work done tonight.
I’ll be posting soon on a couple of side topics: 1.) The 1/144 Gundam Leopard kit and 2.) SD Gundam G Generation World review. Plus more on the GP01 as it’s built.
