Gunpla SD Group Build

I'm a person with multiple hobbies ranging from tinkering with cars and chasing outdoor adventures to building Gunplas. All of these activities, i find goes along well with photography & gives me every reason to whip out my DSLR to satisfy shutter-firing urge; so that i'll always have a big scope of topics to blog about. As shutter happy as i may be, i'm still not an accomplished photographer as i'd like to be, since i lack technical depth. When it comes to shooting, i just shoot by 'feel'.

Finally had our inaugural Gunpla group build at Snoopy's place today, since recently me and a couple of my now ex-collagues had picked SD Gundams as our poison *new hobby* =p

I'm not new to Gunplas though, as i had been strictly a snap-fit builder since 2007, taking a new project from time to time. Working on my 1st SD project, i experimented with application of extra colors using Gundam markers courtesy of our official Gunpla godfather, Valen ^_*

I find assembling Gunplas truly engaging & satisfying; building them together with a group of enthusiast surely tweaks up the fun factor as we get to share know-hows, share tools & talk crap of course! =)

Pretty impressive lighting, though i'm still learning how to set it up properly... hmm,. that's how they get the no-shadow effect for professional product shoots...
