Building the Enterprise

Staying true to my new year’s resolution, I wanted some creative stimuli. So, I started another model. This time, another ship. Another because I built the Yamato almost 4 years back. That brought back alot of memories.

Anyway, this time I thought of building an American ship. Also from the waterline series. The Big E. The older Big E. This is one ship with history. I’ve always thought of building the current Enterprise (CVN-65), but the model kit is of a larger scale and I didn’t have room for it. Well, maybe after this one I can reconsider.

I lost a search lamp when putting it together. The pieces are tiny!

A few more steps left to complete the model; painting the planes she carries is going to be an eye squinting experience!

There’s something about Yamato that mesmerizes me. I even visited the drydock in Kure where she was constructed.

Hobby Complex 6

So, I was at Hobby Complex 6 on Sunday. My very first appearance at hobby complex. Heard that it was twice as big as last year. Probably has something to do with the cancellation of winter wonder fest. I took quite a few photos. Some NSFW.

It’s alot smaller than wonfes I attended earlier, but still an interesting event. Loads of figures and stuff.
