The roster of tanks The quality seems pretty surprising
Time for better photographs I mean smartphone cameras today does a really great job at photo capturing gunpla and everything, not to mention very convenient, but the thing is none of smartphones at my disposal can capture the same quality as that of a DSLR camera would.

Because my Tamiya side cutter needs to have a new backup tool I bought it from Toy r’ Us store in local mall. For a 13 dollar tool, I thought they overpriced it a bit much, comparing it with 1999.co.jp’s price of just 7 dollars, oh well. The nipper is solid, I like the grip […]
