Gerbera Tetra Kai (ver KA) [Gundam 0083] by sandrum
Gerbera Tetra Kai (ver KA) [Gundam 0083]
It's been 4 years since getting through this particular mesh, and far more for the other ones.  I've never been able to get anything decent looking for this suit, but I've not given up trying to figure out something that would let it stand out.  While ostensibly based off of the Gerbera Tetra from Gundam 0083, this design was created by Katoki Hajime for his line of Gundam Figures in the "Fix Figuration" lineup several years back.  While the kit sported the Gerbera Gundam GP-04 (Unit 04)[Federation], the figure could swap out parts to frankenstein the Gerbera Tetra Kai [Zeon], which I thought was pretty novel.  I wouldn't be surprised if one day it turned out to be a master grade kit in some fashion or another. 

I really really will get back to this someday.  Getting my ducks together and looking for spare time...

Hi-Nu Gundam
I created this almost 6 years ago and barely remember what I did or how I did it, but it's showing its age.  What I do remember is that I used the ideas in the Master Grade Hi-Nu Gundam model kit while also espousing ideas present in the version of the Hi-Nu created for the *Vicious Project* of resin kits tailored to modify the Master Grade.  That particular kit made changes to the size of the legs as well as the rest of the body to more closely conform to the older Izubuchi illustrative style of the Hi-NU.  The end result was a mish-mash that I enjoyed creating at the time.  I used this image as part of the header I had on my old blog, which has languished in the past year.  

I'm hoping to get back into this, but I always say that...

It's Been A Long Time

I think that by now everyone who has written about the quake has done so, thus I really feel no need to continue on that path.  Suffice to say that it sucked, but being in Tokyo (I moved back in November) means that -- while the tremors are still happening, they aren't so bad at the moment.  What's tops on my mind would be the nuclear plants up north.  Even then there isn't that much for those in Tokyo to worry about.  Probably flying back home for vacation would net me more radiation than staying put.    On that subject, radiation isn't even much of an issue where I'm sitting.  It's not Chernobyl.  Anywho, things are going just fine for now and the stores are magically empty-ish.  

I've been meaning to get back to the arts and stuff, but I'm so busy these days I almost don't have time to even sleep.  Still, for what it's worth, thanks for all of the great comments.  I'm trying to check up on them when I can.  Much appreciated.

Finally, a special thanks to :iconmelikeacar: for a fantastic message she sent to my family and myself.  Words cannot express.  Be sure to take a look at her fantastic gallery!
