Quick update

Finally got some time to update some of my projects.

The Caster is almost done, only few parts to attach and she is all ready to go. Bye bye Caster .

Misato is moving along too. I finished painting her beautiful legs and her shoes. In the reference picture, her shoes are black, but I decided to go with soft brown. I think it looks very good. By the way, I am still wishing for a legs like she have.

My new project is another Dark Elf. She will be a little modified from original version.
She will have removable bra and bikini bottoms. For now I am working on sanding off her armor and making her look "correct" naked.

I have my table full of work and not enough time to finish them all.

Caster in progress

One of my other projects on the table is Caster from Fate/Stay Night. She is almost done.

Her cloak is very complicated. It came in in four parts that took lots of pins to connect. All of the black lines on the photos are pins.

This is a commission kit, and my client decided to go with a blue theme on Caster. I am done with painting her cloak. For her cloak, I used Model Master lacquer paint. All of the colors are flat, so the cloak looks and feels like velvet. I would love to have one for real too :D

Her dress thingy was all in separate parts too. This kit have way too many pins inside, maybe if I wait a little bit more it will be worth something because of all the copper inside :D

I had a chance to paint her skin color (together with Misato's legs). Now I have to wait a little bit before I can mask all that skin and paint the rest of her dress. This gives me a chance on updating my blog.

Misato part 3

I usually follow specific order in making my kits. First I clean, sand, prime all the parts and only after final fit test, I start painting. This kit is different. I have too many other projects going on, so poor Misato is just sitting in the corner (or parts of her), so when I get a free minute, I work on her. I am not fully done with cleaning and sanding all of her parts yet (her hair is total mess), but I already started to paint her.

Her dress is all done and now I got a chance to work on some of her skin (her hands are not put together yet). Her face is done and I painted her big, beautiful legs.
Maybe I will finish her up before Christmas.

My back yard.

The school started, the weather got colder, and the days are getting shorter. It all means that the fall is upon us. Another sign that its almost Autumn is that the turkeys are here too

Just wanted to share some of my "wild life" experience.

This is my back yard and this is one of my "predators". He didn't hurt any of them, but I think we all had fun watching.

Misato, part 2

My small update on Misato.
It took me a lot of patience and time to clean up Misato's dress. It was all covered in small tiny pin holes Tough and not very inspiring work. But the good thing is that I am all done with the dress Well, now I have to go and fix her jacket too.


This is my latest commission. She is 1/6 scale of Rider from Fate/Stay Night anime. I had to do some modifications with her dress. I did a WIP on a modeling site ( It is pretty self-explanatory.
