GUNPLA NEWS - 29-Year-Old man Burns Down House Over Gundam Models

GUNPLA NEWS - 29-Year-Old man Burns Down House Over Gundam Models (Re-blogged from gundamkitscollection)

"A 29-year-old Japanese man has been arrested after burning their house to ground because of a fight with his mother about Gundam model kits.

Takabe Yoshifumi, is a 29-year-old factory worker from a town near Kobe, Japan, was arrested on Sunday October 4, 2009 , 2:00 PM after he burned down the house where he and his mother lived in.

The suspect told the police that he set his room on fire in a suicide attempt while upset after he learned that his mother had thrown away his "valuable" Gundam model kits. Even though Takanabe intended to kill himself, both him and his 55-year-old mother managed to escape the house unharmed. Though, the partially wooden two-story, 2,700 sq. ft. house had nothing left to offer them to stay in for the night after the incident.

ESCAPIST MAGAZINE: Okay, you know what? On the one hand, I can understand the guy being upset. Beyond obviously being a (rather passionate) fan of the franchise, Gundam models can get kind of pricey. Right now, I have nine or so models on my desk here at the office, probably worth anywhere from $250 to $300, ballpark. And those are medium-quality kits, even.
The highest-quality model kits (like, say, this Perfect Grade Astray Red Frame, for example) can run you anywhere from $150 to $200, and if this guy was as devoted a fan as he appears, he probably had a few of those in his collection. So, we're potentially talking a loss of a few grand here - he was perfectly right to be angry.
But... driven-to-suicide-and-burning-down-the-house angry? That's a bit much, wouldn't you think?

Gear.Gs : As a builder , I do understand how it feels to have a Gunpla worth of our effort , time and Gunpla do play a big part of our life as a builder ... Even for me I never let anyone enter the room where i have my Gunplas in them without my supervision ... because whenever anyone touches your Gunpla , you risk mishandling them and might end up to some thing bad .... 

But do think rationally , please do not do anything irrational , keep calm and fix whatever is broken ... 
Show them that a builder is worth of the Gunpla and be able to fix what is broken ... and then, never forget to blacklist that person who broke your Gunpla ...hahaha 

As for the non-builders , please respect the builders and do not touch what is not yours without permission. You seriously don't want anything bad to happen ...

As always , i have waited for my chance to get a kit at a promotional price :D
If im not wrong this kit cost about 11,900yen

yes , i present you my Pg Strike Gundam , my FIRST EVER PG in my collection :D

WIP :::::::::

Started off the kit with the legs ~ em' legs are just sexayyyyyyy xD

And yes , i painted it to a dull metallic-candy red ~ from what I have researched , I concluded that a dull color give more of a realistic image hahah~

For the legs , there are metal parts to support the articulation....

The inner frame is also painted using Alclad II Lacquer - Black chrome. a type of extremely dangerous mixture , so if you are gonna use this paint , please take precautions.

Shiny :D 

Legs done~

Then i proceed with the waist and body ...

Yes , same metallic color ~ (guide for this paint techniques qill be shown below :D )

Then the arms and head ...

Arms with frame painted :D

The skull

Test fitting with Aile Striker

LED test...
The yellow LED is not so satisfying to me therefore i decided to DIY a LED unit for it ....

For more info about the LED unit please visit ::

Here , i will also guide you on the paint technique that i used for my PG

I will be using the shield to show how i do it :::

FIRST : give the surface a GLOSS BLACK base layer. MUST be GLOSS.

Then proceed with a layer of ALCLAD II LACQUER - CHROME. you might wanna search up on how to use the alclad paint , because it isn't any regular paint.

Lastly , do a finishing coat using any clear color of your choice :D


You can play around with the shades you like by doing the clear color layer , the more layer there is, the darker the color gets.

the Aile Striker ....(more info for the aile striker will be posted when i get my skygrasper done)

Weapons ......

Beam riffle .... painted with matte black and black chrome ....

The GRAND SLAM...painted as well ...

Beam Sabers .... replaced with modified metal beam saber , and so does it light up :D

Armor Schneiders .....  the whole thing came in balck ... i didn't paint it , those will be hidden in the pockets anyway , plus i ran out of paint xD so does being a little lazy hahahah xD


I decided not to cover up too much of the PG details with the decals .... so only put up some of the decals

Well , my 1st PG .....hmmm~ i actually think i have alot more to learn ~ all i did was building painting it ~ how would you rate my first PG ?  xD Please leave me a comment :D
