We hit 10,000 followers! That was fast... I started doing this less than a year ago! Most of what's important is in the slides above, but I missed a few things. I'll go into those things now. (You don't have to read it by any means.) -
Around my 2k mark or so, I joined a group called The Gunpla Collective (@thegunplacollective). This group was amazing. To be completely honest, it felt more like an international family than a building group. I guess you could say it felt like both! The people in it are both talented and awesome as people. Because of this group, I met so many people. For example, I met @gunplacollection. He's a great guy who just collects Gunpla! Especially the stupidly expensive kits, those are like his natural calling. He sent me my first Bandai exclusive kit! Another person that I've had the pleasure of meeting is @zeonic.d. He is an awesome builder that is a rare kind of cool. He gets me third-party kits! (He's like a private pirate, essentially.) I could probably keep going about the people I've met. But, for the sake of not wanting to type a book, I'll stop here. -
Anyways, I never thought I'd get to where I am or meet the people I met. I don't regret a single thing so far. As far as how I run this page, I'm going to be doing generally the same things. However, if you have an idea for this page, go ahead and drop a comment! I'm always down for feedback. -
Thank you. - Cameron, A.K.A. Nexus -
Tools of the trade for Scale Modeler....
A good airbrush and compressor is a blessing in this hobby.
One can coat the model fast with good result using airbrush.
In researching, I found that some sources explain that big branded Japanese airbrush also does not make their own airbrush but from OEM.
This one from Mr.Hobby PS-270 is equivalent to Iwata Hi-line HP-CH with just about half the price.
Built quality is exceptional and one can get a very fine line with it...

Lets put holes.. this is how I “custom” my Woundwort.. not a crazy custom tho, I prefer to called it “put more stuff on it” 😁 no glue needed, so the tank and the pipe are still can detachable and moved as I like.. for me its more satisfying than just gluing all the parts.. and its all holding tight even without glue, you can see in the video.
For details :
- The tank is from the Builders Part “MS Tank 01”, I got 4 tanks in it, 2 big-2 small (in diameters), but I decided only use 1 of the big one, its long tho, so I cut it into pieces and make it short.
- the pipe is from HG Zaku Half Cannon, I think its the pipe rounded the head, cut into 2.
- to make the holes, heres a solution if you (like me) don’t have mini drill, Im using the hobby knife, I marked the hole with pen first, then just put the tip of the knife on it and “drill” it, you know, like using a screwdriver, slow and steady, and always check the diameters until it fits.
This kit is still has a long way to go, I need to built 1 more riffle from the H-Arms also 1 more long riffle from my 2nd Woundwort kit. When its all done, time for the best part, painting! 😁
Well everyone, lo and behold the full armor has made it's debut! This thing looks awesome! I'm thinking it'll cost somewhere around 6,400 yen (about $64)...maybe? Who else is interested in this?
