Wasabi Toys relocated to Virra Mall late last year, along with Greattoys. Wasabi's on the 2nd floor just a little behind Toy Kingdom while Greattoys is on the 3rd floor near CD-R King and STC.

The Annapolis branch is gone. Balita ko eh downsizing daw sila ng mga branches.

Ohh.... Alright alright.

And after several years, I managed to finish another AC kit. First time to do one that's fully airbrushed too.

That was a pretty long hiatus for ACs. If i remember correctly, the last time i even built and painted one was way back in 2012. Glare


Lo, there do I see my father.
Lo, there do I see my mother, my sisters and my brothers.
Lo, there do I see the line of my people back to the beginning.
Lo, they do call to me.
They bid me take my place among them in the halls of Valhalla,
Where the brave, may live forever.

Naks naman, grabe ang pagka level-up ng modeling mo We're not worthy. Maganda din ang pagka timpla ng base color netong AC.

Thanks. Becoming friends with a group of local modellers with varying experience levels will kinda force you to improve. Nakakatulong yung meron ka madalas kausap sa kada step ng mga build mo eh. Mabilis na makakuha ng feedback at comments.

This AC was actually entered in an online contest a few months ago. Still a long long road to trek. Mine is at the 19:46 mark. Big grin

Wow buti pa dyan. We also have a modeling community here pero di ko nagustuhan ang ugali nila sa FB. Lots of helpful people pero madaming infighting at minsan double standards. Left the FB group and stopped attending the group meets too.

I'm surprised at the amount of AC entries in that contest too!

Just goes to prove that a lot of people worldwide still love Armored Core kits. Hahaha.

Codenamed C.L.A.M. Currently next in line after I finish the 1/144 Leo. Or perhaps finish the quad AC first before proceeding to this one.

Looking good there. Scratchbuilt head and small missiles?

Ah no those were the first batch of the 3d printed stuff I did back then. Planning to remake the head unit para mas Kawamori-accurate. Dun sa original artwork ni Kawamori mas prominent yung lens at lower jaw ng head unit.

speaking of 3d printed stuff, have you printed joint/PC parts? there's this connector setup from the pretty armor kit that i'd really like to replicate.

i dunno if the joint/PC parts can be built using plaplate, but i could prolly scratchbuild where they slot into. of course i can just learn how to make custom resin parts. the kit has a spare connector i can use for mold making Tongue

Never tried printing the actual joint parts. So far my only 3d printed part that interacts with the joint is the head unit. I'm not entirely familiar with the type of material they use for 3d printing these days but I think there should be good ones that can be used for joints.

But you gotta consider the cost of printing very small parts in small numbers. Sometimes you're still better off building the joint yourself.
